A little something about me (not many people know) is that I am obsessed with details. Ok, who are we kidding? Everyone knows that details make me happy. I love to know every aspect of a project, and my employees know this. However, because they know that I need/want to know all that is happening, I can sometimes become inundated with questions. Now, while I’m glad my employees want to make sure all is well with a project or client, we all work from home, so I must leave my workload to answer.
Before Snagit, I would sit on the phone trying to answer a question, or walk my employees through what I was talking about. I’d reply to an email in the best detail possible, but it was inevitable that I would miss a step, and I’d be emailing again in 15 minutes. I’d send detailed text messages with what I thought was a perfected answer, but alas, the text chain became 3 pages long. I needed a change, and so did my employees. Into my lap fell, Snagit.
Snagit is a screen capture/screen recorder application that allows me to create images and videos for my employees and clients. It takes the “huh?”, “what?”, and “can you repeat?” out of every situation. I’m obsessed.
Snagit’s simplicity makes it that much more practical for me to use. I quickly choose whether I want to capture an image or record my screen, I answer the question with detailed steps/visuals from my computer, edit out all my “think time” from the video (who likes listening to silence…), and send a URL to whomever is receiving the information. That’s it. Quick, easy, and simple.
My employees love this tool because they have a video tutorial in their inbox within minutes. It can be used as a reference guide…because who can hear something one time and apply it? Not me.
I’m sharing my love for Snagit to all my business friends because it has made my stress level go down, and my employee’s frustration with not receiving a clear answer, non-existent.
Oh, and did I mention the videos are clear? Crystal. No more fuzzy screens and buffering over here.
Try it out! There’s a FREE trial waiting for you.
All my love,
