Did you know that you can make your PowerPoint video to upload to Youtube? I know that there are a lot of people out there wondering how they can advertise their business and get videos onto Youtube. it really doesn’t matter what you look like or what you sound like, because people do not care. Making a PowerPoint video is an easy way to make a promotional video that can advertise your business. You only need to use your voice and a few skills that you can learn in this tutorial right now.
What you need to make a PowerPoint video to upload Youtube:
- You will need Microsoft PowerPoint to make the slides. If you do not have Microsoft PowerPoint I know that Open office has a free addon that may do the same thing. The other alternative is to create some slides all pages in Microsoft Word and use something like the snipping tool to turn them into a JPEG file. You don’t even need slides, you can just use pictures if you want, or even photos you have got off your Digital camera.
- You will need to download the free program called Camstudio. This program will record your screen while you talk.
- You will need a microphone. I am using a headset that has a microphone with it. I purchased it from Amazon and it is just a cheap one.Here it is:Logitech USB Headset H530 . If you do not have a fancy microphone, do not let this hold you back, just give it a go. If you find out that this is easy for you to do then go and buy a decent microphone or headset.
