    Awesome advice, Karen!! I’ve never wanted to be more known locally before, and I’m now considering it, so it was especially interesting for me to hear your take on the question. 🙂

    Love your new videos — just need a few guest appearances from the cats 🙂

    What software did you use for editing? Recommendations you can share with the rest of us – something that allows easy editing to add the URLs, text intro/outro?

    Yeah, I think the cats want IN on the videos. During the shooting of this video, Tess sorta strolls into the room. I can see her out of the corner of my eye and I’m praying, “Please don’t cry for dry food. Please don’t cry for dry food. Mommy is shooting a video.” 🙂

    I’m using Camtasia Studio, which allows me to edit the videio, put in captions (the domain name across the bottom), the Passion For Business logo (and the “box” transition that moves from the logo to the video of me). I could have added a track of music, too, but I thought that was a little much, eh?

    You can try using the video editor that comes free with your computer (Windows or Mac), but I don’t know if they have as many bells and whistles as Camtasia.

    I’ll also be using Camtasia to make a different kind of video, one that’s promoting a certain product or class, or one that captures clicks and keystrokes on a screen (sort of a “how to use XYZ software” tutorials). These videos probably won’t include segments of me…they’re more graphics and text based.

    There’s so much more that Camtasia can do, but I feel I haven’t scratched the surface of it yet. I’m learning each technique in Camtasia on a need-to-know basis.

    Appreciate it Karyn. I’ve heard good things about Camtasia. For the meanwhile I was opting for the cheap $30 Quicktime Pro which has been SUPER except for my ability to get text segment (an image) to stay on the screen long enough to read the freaking URL and call to action. Can’t find anything in Google right now to answer the Q. Camtasia is on my wish-list indeed though.

    I think all the kitties should come demanding dry food during the shooting. Here’s to hoping. Would love to see it even if it is only via an “Ask Karyn Anything” outtakes/bloopers segment.
