How to Create Personalized Onboarding Videos using an API?

Creatomate's API makes it easy to generate numerous unique onboarding videos using dynamic templates and customer data. Begin by designing your onboarding video, including placeholders for personal information like names, roles, images, and more. Then, set up an automation using a no-code tool or programming language to insert customer data, resulting in a personalized video for each customer.

Start with a video template

The first step in automating onboarding videos is to create a template that serves as the design for all videos. Within this template, you can define the text and media elements you wish to replace with unique customer data.

While there are pre-made templates available, you may prefer to design your own using the editor. With a wide range of customization options, you can create onboarding videos that perfectly meet your specific needs.

curl -s -X POST \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer Your-API-Key' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data-binary @- << EOF
  "template_id": "Your Onboarding Video Template ID",
  "modifications": {
    "Name": "Rebecca",
    "Image": "",

Set up an automated workflow

Once you've created a template, the next step is to generate your personalized onboarding videos. The easiest way is to use a no-code platform such as Zapier, Make (Integromat), or Pabbly. These platforms let you build customized workflows by integrating thousands of apps, including Creatomate, HubSpot, Salesforce, and other CRM tools. Here's a tutorial on how to create personalized videos using Zapier. As for Make and Pabbly, the concept is the same.
