(Note: TechSmith, the developer of Camtasia Studio, has withdrawn this offer. They still encourage you to test out a free 30 day copy of the latest version, Camtasia Studio 5. I have listed alternative free screen recording video software for you here Free Screen Recording Software)
This holiday season is very generous. I am glad to inform you that there is one more amazing software you can download and start using for free. Techsmith are giving away free downloads of their video screen recording software Camtasia Studio 3.
I am sure those of you who already aware of Camtasia started thinking that it is an old version. Yes, indeed it is an old version. Yet it is still workable for the beginners. Probably Techsmith expect us to upgrade to a newer version. Anyway, it is still a good idea to try the software free for a while and then decide on upgrading.
What the heck Camtasia Studio, anyway ?
Well, let’s start from the basics. Just like audio with podcasting, video and “vlogging” (video blogging) can create huge traffic for your blog. Using video as a source of traffic is all about one thing – viral marketing. Using just a simple web camera and a distribution service like YouTube is all you need to get started.
You can keep things very simple and just sit in front of your web camera and teach, play music, or create a visual tutorial, or record something funny, sexy, unusual, or beautiful. If you can relate the content to your niche the traffic will be targeted, thus helping retain a good chunk of the new visitors.
Camtasia software program records screencasts. It’s very simple to create screencasts and if your niche is in an area where you can teach using your computer, Camtasia and programs like it, offer a very easy way to get into video.
If you are interested in Camtasia, then you can start using it in three easy steps :
Download the software from this link, and save it on your desktop.
Go to this page, enter your name, country and e-mail address. Techsmith will then send a software key to unlock the program.
Install the software and then insert the key to unlock it and you will have the full working version of Camtasia Studio 3.
I have already downloaded and started discovering Camtasia. First impression is quite good. I would like to publish some videos to my blog by using Camtasia. I am not sure whether you can bear with my horrible voice. Will you ?
