A Fine Way to Reach Your Audience

It’s called screen casting, and it’s not necessarily too difficult.  If you have a microphone and webcam that work, you’re all set (for an ideal setup, visit Tom Johnson’s blog, http://www.idratherbewriting.com).

Screen casting can be something as simple as a link to a youtube video.  The point of using it is the same reason you use Captivate: to keep your audience around.  When they’re watching footage of you speaking, they don’t have to read a word, and they like that.  The other great thing about screen casting is you can place the link anywhere.  You could have one in the middle of your blog, an online document, or a website.  It seems to me like there are two wins: first, screen casting catches your audience, and second, it’s a fairly versatile tool.
