    • Unlock tactical how-to information to create YOUR online courses and subscription services quickly and inexpensively.
    • Marketing ideas to sell these solutions to more than just your canceled event attendees

    In our meeting with Rob Oddi, we were given an inside look at how to plan Vlogs (video blogs) and testimonials that generate business. Now that we know how to plan the videos, it’s time to learn how to put those videos together. Rob kept saying the process was easy…and he’s right.

    In our session on How to Use Camtasia to Edit Video Blogs and Testimonials, NSADC member John Watkis is going to teach you the fundamentals of Camtasia so you can easily produce videos that look as if they were edited in a professional studio.

    The Camtasia software has been made available to NSA professional members FREE. To receive your free copy, click on the link, fill out the form, and you’ll receive the software within 48 hours. PLEASE DO THIS IMMEDIATELY!
