People often ask me,
"What online tools do you find to be the most beneficial to your business?"
With so many great technology tools available these days, it's hard to sort through them all. But one of my most obvious choices would be Jing.
Jing by TechSmith is a fast, easy, and fun way to capture images and create videos of what you see on your computer screen, allowing you to add visual elements to your online conversations.
Founded in 1987 by President William Hamilton, TechSmith provides seven products in more than 30 countries that do anything from take screen captures, to screen recording, and managing consumer content.
Since the advent of Web 2.0, a wealth of helpful tools have emerged to help make the sharing of information online more effective and efficient.
Jing enables you to easily capture, edit, save, and distribute specific portions of information displayed on your computer screen.
Jing makes it easy to insert arrows, add text boxes, or highlight or frame text....
Jing also allows you the ability to create a video of your screen capture and add an audio element as well (referred to as a 'Screencast) with up to 5 minutes recording time maximum:
Your screen captures and video/audio captures (screencasts) can be easily distributed to several of the most popular social networking sites.
You can easily download the FREE version of Jing for both Windows and Mac by going to the Techsmith website:
Once you've downloaded the program, the small yellow Jing orb will be superimposed at the top center of your screen, allowing for quick, easy access to the Jing tools.
