How to make review and sales videos on the cheap
Here is a quick tutorial on how to make review and sales videos without spending a bunch of money.
Making a review video or even a sales video is not that hard. All you need to do is use a screen cast program and tools you probably already have on your computer. The key is to pause the screen cast program as you change things.
For example if you want to make a text / speech video. Use any desktop publishing software (or even paint / notepad). Put our text on it, record yourself reading it, pause the video, change the text, and repeat. Very quickly you can make a text / speech video without needing any extra software.
Want to put a product shot or demo inside of your video, simple, just prerecord your demo (with your screen cast program) and play it on your screen with Media Player. Pause your screen cast program, play your review video, full screen, and then unpause the screen cast program. The net result is that you just spliced another video into your screen cast.
While eventually anyone really interested in review videos or video marketing will probably want to get a professional level video editor this is a great way for someone to get started without spending a bunch of money. In fact the only thing you really need a screen cast program. For that I personally like (screencast-o-matic) which costs about $15 only. But if you really dont want to spend even that, there are free options out there (like screenr.com).
I hope this video helped you see what can be done, and how you can make decent review videos and sales videos without needing to shell out a lot of your cash. If you have any questions please post them in the comments. Im always glad to help when I can.
