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 love videoscribe and i have a couple others that have other features, but videoscribe is best even though the others work good. I just work better with videoscribe and it's my doodle software of choice.”
“It's a brilliant product, easy to use once you get into it and the support team are amazing, friendly and knowledgeable. I'm the sort of person who is not that technical but the support guys are at the end of a telephone line and have helped me immensely. I have participated in two webinars and I have to say again the presenters are so friendly and I learned so much, then have the recordings for future reference. If you intend to make several videos it's exceptionally good value. Even if you only make one video I recon it's good value for your money. Love it. You can view my first video on my web site. Thank you.”
“Always supportive, always professional and friendly. I was a prof until I retired and my students used Video Scribe to prepare presentations in my classes in our financial planning department. When I retired and no longer needed the software, they quickly too care of my issues and solved my problems immediately. Not only is this great software, it is a pleasure to deal with them.”
“I love Videoscribe. Hadn't used it in a while and the customer support team was incredibly responsive to help me regain momentum using it. Barry called me personally and was only too willing to make sure I was optimizing the tool. Great value.”
“Joann Solomon is heaven sent…
This truly was one of the most positive experiences and it all is because of Joann being so flexible and understanding.
Last week I was tasked to come up with a solution to my company training needs, I reached out to a 5 animated illustration software companies. Out of the 5 company’s 1 responded. Not only was the experience seamless and painless but Joann made it fun and educational.
I look forward to working with Videoscribe in the future and hope everyone can experience the outstanding customer service from Joann.
“I was looking for a more impactful way to communicate to my audience when I discovered Video Scribe. This gave me a tool to express my message in a concise and visually interesting way. The Video Scribe platform is very easy to learn and with the freedom to add my own creativity, it was just the tool I needed to introduce my webinar. Thank you, Video Scribe!”
