Ease of use and capacity to generate an original video in very little time.
I use whiteboard animation videos to teach best-practice memorization techniques to students, so they crush their exams.
VideoScribe helps me connect with my audience and deliver them huge value. I love the Steve Jobs quote that 'simplicity is the ultimate sophistication' and simplicity is one of the things VideoScribe does really well. It's easy to use and helps me create engaging videos my audience loves.
I started out with VideoScribe when I created a short whiteboard animation video to put on YouTube. It was a promotional video to help market a book I'd published on Amazon. As a promo video it was a complete failure (no increase in book sales) but people loved the video and it started to get more and more views and engagement.
So I thought "Maybe I should transform the book into a complete series of whiteboard animation videos". I posted the first couple for free on YouTube, directing traffic to the complete course on my website (https://www.memorize.academy)
It was a success and I've recently started posting regular whiteboard animation videos on YouTube. Part of my branding is 'The Whiteboard Animation Memory Coach'.
Between YouTube and other platforms my videos have been watched over 7 million times, making me the most viewed memory coach in the world. I've received a YouTube Silver Play Button for reaching 100,000 subscribers and now I'm focused on reaching one million.
VideoScribe allows me to create unique and high quality videos for my audience, and it's one of the essential tools in my business.
The program is still a bit clunky and not (in my opinion) navigated easily for first time users. However, the most impressive thing to me - and I do mean IMPRESSIVE - is your staff. Johnny, Michael, and especially Barry, have been remarkably patient and helpful to me. The "instant answers" button on the Sparkle Help page (http://help.sparkol.com/support/home) doesn't necessarily provide "instant answers". I was on a tight deadline and needed to speak with a human being to help me solve issues with the program and I was forced to wait until at least the next day for a response that wasn't always what I needed. The community blog / forum is good, but is hit or miss. People using this tool professionally, need "instant answers" - not answers that may or may not help, one to two days later. Other than that, I like the program, I would like to see more editing tools (especially with the voice over feature) and a way to create my own backgrounds instead of just working with the ones provided.
Eay, flexible, great support, video hosting, and impressive output.
My business needed a way to communicate certain technical subjects to our customers. The versatile and easy-to-use Videoscribe platform was perfect for our needs! We are so grateful for this quality product. Truly a lifesaver.
I can create all that I need to do and it is easy simple and fun. Please add more search words and more characters and I will be even more happy! Excellent software!
“I've never made more impact with a message than after my first VideoScribe. My first ever use was to convince a group of parents that they should send their children on a summer camp with us, given our careful considerations and meticulous preparations in corona times. I see great new possibilities for the volunteering work I do; I am pretty sure I'll be embarking soon on my second, third, fourth, ... project. I am equally impressed, by the way, by your context-relevant messages. You guys are doing a good job monitoring your prospects and newcomers and providing them with content that is spot on for what they need. Keep on doing that.”
“I enjoy a lot each new class organized using Video Scribe! A lots of fun.In Venezuela is not easy to pay the membership, teachers salary is 4$montly for this reason is not easy.I only use the free option.Thanks for this option.”
“During the unexpected lockdown, my classes had to move online. To keep my students entertained and focused, I started learning how to present history class with videoscribe. What you know :) some students like it to the point that they started purchasing videoscribe to make their own videos as their homeworks.”

“Tenho realizado os primeiros vídeos. Vou utilizar para aulas que ministro. Considero uma ferramenta bastante objetiva e fácil de usar para o que necessito. Os tutoriais são muito bem feitos. Ainda começando, mas gostando muito até agora!”
“Good tutorial which makes it easy to follow and use. The first try takes a bit long but once you've put one together it is a good engagement tool to use for my lessons for international students.
I also like how they get back to you very promptly if you have questions. Great product n team.”
“This is an excellent bit of software. Easy to use and adapt to different types of promotion or explanation. I often use it together with video editing software to help explain a subject. 'Scribing' is also a great tool for getting and holding people's attention.”
“Easy to use... and can import self illustrated images from illustrator. I am in the process of animating the most recent trauma treatment research findings so all therapists have something visual for clients. I am really enjoying this as a piece of work. I would love to be able to draw direct in it to generate own images.... but maybe that will come with time.
Loads of my videoscribe on my you tube channel trauma therapy resources... happy to have encouraging feedback ... I'm still learning the creative tools. :)”

Thanks for the great feedback Gilly. Did you know you can create your own images for VideoScribe using SVG Editors like Illustrator and Inkscape so you can bring your own drawings and doodles to life - https://help.videoscribe.co/support/solutions/articles/1000033714-create-your-own-images
