Increase Impact & Save Time with Video!Posted on: March 13, 2019
Interested in learning how to increase your efficiency AND make your life a whole lot easier? Say hello to video! We have a FREE video resource to share with you to help you get started.
When we come across a tool that we think might bless and empower YOUR organization, we want to make sure you know about it. Like our article on Canva – a great free design tool!
Well, another one of our favorite free tools here at Ministry Sync is Loom.
What is Loom?
Loom is a free, user-friendly video and screen recording software. Using Loom via your internet browser records your screen, voice and/or face via web camera. It produces a video instantaneously that you can either download to your computer or just copy a shareable link and send!
These quick screen recording videos are a powerful way to increase efficiency and effectiveness for a variety of scenarios! You can record a loom video to teach someone how to do something and then re-use your teaching efforts over and over again. Loom videos are also valuable for those you can’t easily work with in-person. Our Sales and Support teams often use this tool to record quick how-to navigational tutorials for our customers!
- Use Video For Event Prep! Ever want to do a step-by-step tutorial for each of your event’s table hosts, but don’t have the time to sit down with each of them? Maybe you have a list of of FAQ’s from your table hosts… like “how do I register my guests?” Or, “How do I use the host manager?!” Consider recording a quick video tutorial via Loom and save the time you would spend fielding calls and emails from your hosts, guests, or volunteers!
- Teach Your Staff With a Video! Maybe you want to show each of your staff members how to also register guests for your upcoming event, but you are short on time! Or, perhaps you are starting a new software at work and there are a few employees who can’t make your training meeting… record a quick video!
- Videos can INCREASE engagement! Video is one of the most current and popular ways of communicating as well. In an article by Adelie Studios, “When marketers included a video in an email, the click-through rate increased by 200% – 300%.” Wow. That is a statistic worth considering! If it’s a point you REALLY want to drive home, consider recording a quick video.
Watch the above video for a quick overview on how to navigate through Loom! Go to useloom.com and sign up for a free account. If you need additional help once you’ve created your free account, you can access these these instructional videos provided by Loom.
