Creating Video Software Tutorials on Products You Can Easily Sell
Creating Video Software Tutorials - High Value Products You Can Easily Sell
By: James Simpson
What software programs do you use on a regular basis? What tricks do you know that make your life using the software far easier, and speed up your production because of it?
If you know secrets about the software you use, then you need to make software tutorials detailing what you do and how you do it. You can then sell these tutorials for a small fee, aiming to get many hundreds of buyers looking to make their time more productive.
So what do you need to record your tutorials? Start off with Camtasia Studio from Techsmith. It's an outstanding software application that lets you record your desktop activity, i.e. the actions you're making in the software you're using.
This means you can record every action, every keystroke you make whilst using your software - and add voice commentary to it at the same time - to create high-value software tutorials people will be happy to pay for.
The voiceover will need a decent microphone, ideally USB. I've found that the Plantronics DSP-500 headset works best - it produces outstanding audio at a low price. Also, Camtasia Studio will instantly recognise the microphone, so you won't have to spend hours trying to configure it.
Believe it or not, that's all you'll need. Using just these 2 items will allow you to create high-value software tutorials that show others the tips and tricks you know.
And don't think for a second that others won't pay for your tutorials. If you're showing them a way to save time, increase their productivity and improve their overall knowledge of the software in question, then without a doubt people will pay money for your information.
Also, video tutorials have a huge advantage over books in that many, many people prefer to learn visually. Their attention span is short when reading and they can find it difficult to grasp the concept of turning what they read into actions with the software they're learning.
By seeing what's going on directly in the application, they can simply replicate the process without having to refer to a load of text and a dozen screen shots.
So, if you specialize in a software application and you can teach others how to use it effectively, then you need to seriously consider this. And to top it off, if the software in questions also has an affiliate program, you can quickly produce additional income from your tutorials by offering a special discount on your product if the software is bought via your affiliate link.
