How to Create Screencast Demo Videos

How to Create Screencast Demo VideosOne of the easiest and fastest ways to add extraordinary value to any written tutorial content, PLR or otherwise, is to create a quick screencast video demo.

If you've never created any video at all, the idea may seem daunting at first. Screencasts are probably your easiest way to get started, and it's far simpler than you think!

In this video, I used Snagit as my example software for creating a screencast, but there are a number of other apps and software programs available. Some free and some paid. I like Snagit because it's fast and easy, and because I can also use it for screen captures and quick editing of images.


You'll see in the video that I used a sample “how-to” from our PLR report on Creating Content with Microsoft Word – Simple Tips & Tricks. There are 6 how-to's in there, and each one is already laid out step-by-step. So it would be easy to make each one into a screencast demo without breaking a sweat. And it will add a ton of value to the report that most people won't bother doing!

If you want to pick up that particular PLR product or its companion one on PowerPoint, just head over here:


Have fun!

  • Hi Sharyn

    Many thanks for this tip. Your suggestion about using a little video is something that I can do easily.

    I have Snagit myself but don’t use it as much as I should Must improve on that LOL



    • Hey John, did you try this yet? And fyi, I use Snagit a lot for editing screenshot images, including making quick custom thumbnails for YouTube videos. Never use the default!

  • I had no idea Snagit could create video!

    I have also tried the freebie Jing from the same company, TechSmith, who also produces Screencast and Camtasia.

    Thanks for sharing!
