3 free options to record your computer screen for your service-based business

If you’re just getting started creating videos, then the first type of videos you should create is *drum roll please* ‘HOW TO” videos. Here are 3 free options to record your computer screen for your service-based business to get you started on creating tutorials.

There are many reasons you might want to record your computer screen. You might want to train an employee or contractor how to do something, you might want to show your clients how to do something, or you might want to show your audience how to do something.

Basically, you’re creating a tutorial on how to do something.

Hello, and welcome back to my channel. Paigon here, and in this video I’m going to give you 3 free options to record your computer screen.

3 free options to record your computer screen for your service-based business

The first options is for Mac users. It’s also the option I use the most, and that’s Quicktime.  Quicktime comes already installed on your iMac and MacBook, which I have both.

I don’t know if it comes with iPhone because I went rogue and bought a Samsung instead. Sorry iPhone fans, but I’m team Samsung on this.

Let me know in the comments if you know if Quicktime is also preinstalled on iPhones.

If you’re not a Mac user, then these next 2 options are for you.

The first is Zoom. I use it for discovery calls, calls with my clients, and coffee chats. I’ve also attended a lot of meetings on Zoom. But did you know you can share your screen on it?

Yes, so if you already use zoom for client meetings, then you should definitely try it for recording your computer screen.

The 3rd option is the best if you don’t want to download an app to your computer. It’s totally on the internet. In fact, you have to have a Google account because it’s a Chrome extension.

This one is called Loom. You can sign up using your Google account or your Slack account.

I know a lot of business owners use Loom to record tutorials for their employees. I’ve used it to send a quick video to my client on how to do things on YouTube.

The other great thing about Loom is you edit your video after you record it, so it’s super convenient.

Those were your 3 free options to record your computer screen. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve used any of these tools and which one is your favorite. If you like this video then hit subscribe to get my latest videos.
