We love a good screencast video! Don’t know where to start? Let’s talk about the tools! Screencasts are a simple way to show people exactly what actions you’re taking and where your mouse is moving, which make for superb tutorials or educational videos that are typically hard to explain using only audio. But, an engaging screencast doesn’t just happen with the click of a record button. Luckily, we have a post that presents five steps for making a quality screencast.
If you don’t want to waste any time, get started with Soapbox by Wistia — our freemium Chrome extension that’s an easy-to-use screen capture tool. You’ll transform your next sales pitch or presentation with the ability to record your screen, your face, or both at the same time! If you’re on a support team, this screencast tool is a total game-changer. Answering support tickets will be as simple as recording a Soapbox and sending it off in an email. There’s no need to use live-action bumpers for your screencasts anymore as we explained in one of our past posts because Soapbox covers all the bases. As you can see, screencast tools like Soapbox can help you explain yourself while showing viewers exactly what they want to know. Start screencasting with Soapbox to increase video engagement and content retention.
