How to Automatically Create Facebook Videos

To automatically create hundreds of Facebook videos, you'll need a video template and dynamic data. This data can be provided in several ways, such as by uploading a spreadsheet, using a no-code workflow, or through the API. Here's a brief overview of how this process works.

Start with a Facebook video template

Whatever method you use, you'll need a video template first. This template contains placeholder elements (such as texts, images, and video clips), that you want to customize for each video. A placeholder element might be a text caption, a product image, or a background video.

There are many ready-made video templates you can use right away. Alternatively, you can create and customize your own video templates with the online video editor.

Choose your automation method

When you've got your template ready, you can choose from three automation methods, ranging from partially automated to fully automated:

  • The easiest and most accessible way is to use a spreadsheet. This approach allows you to generate Facebook videos by importing video clips, text, and images from an uploaded file. It is the ideal solution for creating videos in bulk, whether for an upcoming advertising campaign or to prepare many Facebook videos for an entire month in advance. Check out this tutorial for a quick start.
  • Alternatively, to set up a fully automated workflow, you can use a no-code platform such as Zapier. This platform allows you to connect over 5,000 applications to create customized automation workflows. You may, for example, set up an automated workflow to create videos in response to events from other apps (such as Shopify, Airtable, or Google Drive). Follow this tutorial to get started.
  • Lastly, the most flexible way to auto-generate Facebook videos is by using code. When you have coding experience, you can integrate with the REST API using your preferred programming language, such as JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, or Python. To get started, take a look at this this guide.

Automatically generate Facebook videos

No matter what type of Facebook video you want to automate, any of the three methods above will work. The best place to start is with spreadsheet-based video generation. As your needs grow and you need more flexibility in terms of automation, you can switch to Zapier or code.
