How to Record your Computer Screen for Free
Table of Contents
One of the best ways to begin making money online is to record your computer screen to create review videos and training tutorials and upload them to YouTube.
Most people are “visual” learners and love over-the-shoulder, step-by-step training that they can just watch and follow along.
But isn’t all the software you need expensive?
Well, it can be… but I’ve found a really cool software tool that you can use to record your screen for free… Check out my video tutorial below…
Why use screen capture?
There are several reasons why you might want to use screen capture software to make HD, professional quality videos.
It’s extremely useful for any sort of how-to-videos involving your computer screen, it makes presentations easy to follow, it gives added credibility to product reviews and can really build your personal brand.
A well-made video is perfect for the visual learner, and you can give demonstrations with total ease!
As you can see from the video, it’s really easy as well!
What are my options?
I personally use ScreenFlow for Mac to capture my screen, but it costs around $100.
Camtasia for Windows is another popular choice, but costs between $200-$400.
That’s why I recommend you pick up ScreenCast-O-Matic and you can record up to 15 minutes completely free.
This is perfect for doing product reviews and short training tutorials.
Most of my reviews are around 10 minutes, so it works nicely.
Even if you decide to upgrade for a few more features, ScreenCast-O-Matic will cost less than $50 a year for their top level package.
I still love using ScreenFlow, but if I was starting over again I would definitely use ScreenCast-O-Matic.
It’s the best option I’ve found to record your computer screen for free.
