Have you ever thought that a video showing how to do a task would be a far better solution than a bunch of written instructions telling how to do the task? The video platform Wistia recently released Soapbox, a Chrome browser plugin that gives you an easy to use way to record, edit and publish videos.
Soapbox is a Chrome browser plugin that uses your webcam and screen capture to record audio and video. It has hosting and editing tools, plus the ability to add a thumbnail still image and an end-of-video call to action.
Wistia created 8 free templates to make getting started even faster. The templates also spark your creativity by suggesting use cases for using video. The templates are:
- Weekly status report/update
- Webinar/event invitation
- Sales pitch
- Product demo
- Support desk solution to a common problem / How-To / FAQ
- Internal announcement
- Onboarding welcome
- Cover letter
You share the videos by putting links in email, sharing to a web page (via HTML code snippet), or sharing via social media.
