I’m about to share two
Easy low cost screen recording options,
for making videos; Screen share videos have so many uses for entrepreneurs
and small business owners. In this post, I’ll share two of the screen
recording options, I use in my business, that will help you share
value, build your brand, and grow your online business.
You’ll find Screen Recording videos is a great option for you if you are nervous about
being in front of the camera. And even if you aren’t ready to show your face on screen yet,
you’ll still be able to accomplish one of the biggest goals of video marketing…Creating
a bond with your audience.
Don’t Lose the opportunity to build your audience
with video because you’re not comfortable on camera. You can
still build a bond with your audience with screen
share videos. Just let them hear your personality and share value
One of the biggest reasons videos are so powerful is because people can
see and hear you. They get to know, like, and trust you much faster this way.
Be yourself, don’t try to impress your 7th grade English teacher.
I seriously put a business suit on the first time I cut a video way back.
Not the way to grow an online business unless
your business is selling suits or dressing to the max.
So you may be wondering how or what kind of videos to cut
without showing your face in them (which I highly encourage you
to work your way up to)
Easiest Types of Screen Share Videos to Cut
I suggest starting your journey toward ” I can’t wait to cut a video for
my audience with my smiling face in it ” with …
How to or tutorial videos
Sharing a tip, trick, or resource
You could also try digital product reviews as they can be reviewed on screen
Membership Videos about your topic
if you are new to this industry and feel like you have nothing
to share, think of something you want to know how to do,
research it, and then cut a video about the topic. You can even
say, you are on a journey to XYZ and wanted to share a great tip,
trick, resource, etc.
Cool, so now you know what you want to share, let’s get into two great ways
to share your screen and record if you are not ready to jump into live
video just yet. But first…
Why I choose these two screen sharing options to discuss:
I chose these two easy low cost screen recording options
because even though they are low cost or free, they get the job done, which,
in my book means great value. And when I say easy, I mean it. You will get
the basics in a couple of minutes, and the the more advanced editing
options won’t take much longer to master.
Additionally, both allow you to be
on camera or off, both allow you to share
with embed code or link, and both ways of recording your screen
with these two options for screen recording
are super easy to use. I like fast learning curves, don’t you. Watch the
demo videos in this post for more feature details…
Two easy ways to record your screen and voice that are also very affordable
(I’ve hooked you up with 20% off the normal already low prices when you buy with the link above or any other links in this post)
This is a sweet little tool that just keeps getting better. It started out
in the educational industry, but it’s now really popular with marketers, as well.
It’s a huge value at only $36 for three years for the pro level (no ads and longer
or pay by the single year
If you decide you want to be in the recording and have a laptop camera, you can just use that.
If not, pick up a webcam online or at your local retailer and use it. I have a
Logitec C910 and an HD Logitec ProStream. It’s less important what camera you use. In other words,
don’t use not having the right camera as an excuse not to share your unique personality on
camera. Your fans are waiting. 🙂
But, if you are not going to be in the video, yet :-), you don’t need a camera to use the
screen recording features. It’s easy to choose to leave your camera off with both
screen recording options.
There are a lot of great editing tools in Screencast-o-matic, like the ability to
blur out sensitive data, do text overlays, add a second video to your video when editing,
add music to your video, and you can even add closed caption in different languages .
They also have a lot of tutorial videos, and when I’ve asked support a question, they
got back to me in about a day.
Make Sure You Watch The Demo Videos Where
I Go Into More Details
I’ve cut a demo video for you and posted it below, so you can see the recording
quality. I think that’s vital in screen recording. It’s quite annoying to watch a
tutorial that is blurry 🙁 . I’ve incorporated some of the editing features,
but there’s a lot more to explore.
Here is your demo
This is also hosted with Screencast-o-matic . A very affordable hosting option
2. Option Two for easy low cost screen recording
Loom is a sweet little Chrome Browser extension that you
can grab through the link above. It sits in your browser bar
until you need to record something.
Just click on it to start using it. There are some very
unique features with Loom. One feature I really like is
when you share your recording with someone, you will be notified
when it has been watched. Another feature that we all know
and love from social media sites, is expression of opinion with
emojis which has been added to Loom .
The Loom Chrome extension is currently free; there is also a
beta desktop version free for beta testers until it officially
launches. I won’t get into the differences now other than to say
the desktop version is only available at the time of this writing for
very short videos, and offers higher quality recording.
I think the image quality on the free browser extension option is pretty good.
I’ll post a demo video below…
To record without being on camera, just choose screen only
Once you’re done recording, click the arrow for sharing options.
when someone opens the e-mail you sent with your Loom
link it looks like this (this is Google e-mail view)
Either of the two
Easy low cost screen recording options
will do a great job for you. If your goal is to send a video to someone in
an email, I think Loom is great, but does cut in and out a bit with my
voice and mic. The desk top version when it comes out of beta
will be full HD and most likely with clearer audio.
If you want to do more editing to your videos right now,
you should go with Screencast-o-matic. The Chrome extension of Loom
just does not offer the editing options that Screencast-o-matic has. From what
I’m seen about what’s in store for the Loom desk top version, it may come down
to one or two key feature difference, and price value, once Loom launches.
Summing it up, there are many options for screen recording where you can
have your face on or off camera. I’ve just shared two I’ve used myself in my
online business. What it comes down to, is finding the one that doesn’t
get you bogged down in a tech nightmare that’s robust enough to
handle the edits you want.
Note: these two options are not meant for those recording gaming. They
work great for small business and entrepreneurs growing an online business
to get in, create your content, get a quick render, and move on.

low cost and easy to use screen recording options,
