By this point you’ve probably seen all those SEO tutorials that guide people through different elements involved in optimizing their online presence for search engines. Using screen capture to create these tutorials is really a no-brainer considering it is perfect for the job – but it takes a bit more than that to make sure your tutorial looks great.
Some of the key ingredients that you need to pay close attention to include:
Simple step-by-step approach: Every tutorial needs to be laid out in a simple step-by-step approach and your video should guide the viewer through those steps one by one. The more straightforward an approach you use, the better it will be.
Focus on the important elements: In every ‘scene’ and with each ‘step’ there are going to be several important elements. It may be that you’re clicking on a particular series of buttons, or entering some text, or even tweaking a certain setting – whatever the case, it is important that you design your video to focus on those elements.
Make sure the voiceover is clear: All too often the video itself ends up perfect but the voiceover leaves much to be desired. It could be that it doesn’t coincide with what’s being shown in the video, or it may just be that there are parts where you stammer. If you have trouble with the voiceover, try recording it separately (and maybe even in smaller parts) and inserting it later on by editing your video.
Keep it short: Length is a big issue with tutorials, and even the idea of sitting through a 20 minute tutorial is going to be a turn-off for some people. If your SEO tutorial is a bit meaty, consider breaking it up into several smaller tutorials that each specialize on a specific task or area.
With these key ingredients taken care of you should be well on your way to creating an SEO tutorial that has all the elements necessary to appeal to viewers. Of course you’ll need a solid and reliable screen recorder to pull it off which is where the Movavi Screen Capture comes into play.
By using the Movavi Screen Capture you’ll be able to easily record the video footage that you need for your tutorial and you can also use its other features to enhance the quality of your video, manage the voiceover and audio, cut out unnecessary footage, combine video clips, and much more.
Essentially it has all the bells and whistles that you need to create a great SEO tutorial using screen capture – without requiring a steep learning curve (or indeed, any prior experience whatsoever). That in itself makes it worth taking it out for a spin, at very least.
