HOW TO RECORD YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN USING LOOM

Learn how to record your computer screen using Loom.

In one of my previous videos, I listed the 3 free tools you can use to record your computer screen. Loom was one of them. 

As I mentioned in the previous video, Loom is great because you don’t have to download it. It’s actually web-based. You use a chrome extension to use it. It’s perfect for sending quick videos to clients or to team members explaining how to do things. I’ve seen some people answer questions in facebook groups using it too. 

HOW TO RECORD YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN USING LOOM

First, go to Loom.com. In the right-hand corner, you see the blue button that says ‘sign up for free’. You need either a Google account or Slack account to use it.

I use my Natasha Lane Design Co account which I use through Google Suite. You can log in through Google, but it’s all through your domain name. Click here to find out more about Google Suite (this is an affiliate link).

Start recording

To record videos, you have to have the Chrome extension. Once you click the Loom icon on your Chrome bar, you’ll see the record tab on the right-hand side of the screen. You have the option to record the screen + camera, the screen only, and the camera only. We’re going to choose the screen only and hit the ‘Start Recording’ button.

How to stay productive, my life upside down

When I first started, I used a lot of tools to keep up with my business. My top tools included Trello, Any.do, Google Keep, Asana, and a physical planner. I used all these tools in different ways. I used Trello to keep up with my blog posts, services, and newsletter. I used Google Keep for notes and writing down my ideas.

Before I started my business, I was already using Any.do to keep up with my personal tasks along with my school tasks, so I started adding my business tasks too. I used Asana for services and expanded to blog posts, and I also wrote everything down in my planner. Read More “How to stay productive”

Graphic Design on a Budget: A list of free products to get started

I know what it’s like to be on a budget and have a dream. That was me throughout my whole life. BUT just because you don’t have money, doesn’t mean you give up. I grew up thinking there is always a way. Graphic Design software is expensive, and the industry standard is Adobe. Although I am a big fan of Adobe, it’s expensive especially if you’re learning and experimenting for fun. Read More “Graphic Design on a Budget: A list of free products to get started”

How to use Trello: An Inside Look into My Process

The best part is, it’s free! Read More “How to use Trello: An Inside Look into My Process”

To do Lists are My Life

Why I love to do lists

I am one of those people who cannot function without some type of schedule. If I’m not organized, I will lay around all day marathoning shows, reading mangas, snacking on junk food, or all three. I am only productive when I’m following a list, and I like to list everything. Well, except small things like bathroom breaks. Read More “To do Lists are My Life”
