Recording Screencast Videos: Are You Aware of LOOM?
Ever need to record a video of your computer’s desktop? Sometimes (usually) these are called a screencast videos. If by some strange chance you’re unaware what I am talking about, just think about ANY tutorial on YouTube where you’re following along as someone navigates and walks you through a process on their computer screen. Get the picture? (see what I did there?)
If you’re a seasoned online marketer, chance are about 10 out of 10 that you’ve done this. If you’re a brand new to online marketing you might be aware that you need to do this yet find it a little bit intimidating. And, in either case, you’d probably like to find the easiest and most hassle free way to accomplish this.
LOOM Screencast Extension
And that is where the LOOM extension for Google Chrome comes in. Before I give you a few reasons why I like the extension, let me just say right up front that I have absolutely no affiliate relationship with LOOM – in fact, I am not even sure if there IS an affiliate system in place to begin with. In other words, I am simply writing this article and passing along this information because I found it to be incredibly valuable to myself as a business owner. And I am sure that if I find it useful, others will too.
- The Price – Free up to a certain capacity
- Ease of use – Simply install in your chrome browser and begin using instantly
- The ease in organizing your recordings – create folders and categorize your videos however you see fit
- The ease in sharing your recordings – It can be as simple as pasting the link in an email
- You can download your video to your desktop – Great for stringing together series of videos
- I haven’t even scratched the surface
I’ll leave you with a couple quick things as I wrap up.
The focus of this article was simply to make certain people aware of LOOM that might find it useful. It wasn’t intended to be a tutorial – there are plenty of those available. I just wanted to be another avenue for folks to discover this awesome tool. Nothing more. If this article has piqued your interest and you’d like to give LOOM a try, you can visit: https://www.loom.com and add it to your Chrome browser.
