Since we launched Vidyard GoVideo (Formerly ViewedIt), a webcam and screen recording tool, in October of last year, our amazing community (that’s you!) has made more than 200,000 videos using the product.
We’ve been really impressed with all the different ways you have been using Vidyard GoVideo and the diversity of ideas you’ve brought forward.
But what good is it if we just keep these ideas to ourselves? We want to highlight some of the most interesting use cases we’ve discovered so far to spark your own inspiration to create great videos using Vidyard GoVideo.
To those of you just getting started with Vidyard GoVideo, we hope this post serves as an inspiration and a reference guide! To those of you whose videos we’re showcasing, thanks for being so generous to share your work with the community.
6 Great Examples of Vidyard GoVideo
Check out the first six examples with videos from our community!
1. Sales – make personalized tutorials for prospects
Eric Martin is a Senior BDR at DataFox. He is responsible for prospecting into strategic accounts, and also for organizing their monthly Sales Operations meetups in San Francisco.
Eric uses Vidyard GoVideo to make video tutorials who are currently using the DataFox trial. Eric explained that “the videos are custom to each rep, take us no more than a few minutes to make and include in our follow up, and have been incredibly well received so far.”

2. Customer Success – create a VIP onboarding experience for prospects
Vero Donelle is a Market Outreach Specialist at Alongside. Vero frequently reaches out to HR professionals and hiring teams to chat about how they can help them streamline their processes, saving time and cutting hiring costs (all while improving their application experience for job seekers).
When we chatted with Vero, she explained that she uses Vidyard GoVideo to onboard customers and give quick walkthroughs or clarify features. “I use GoVideo to show customers how they and their team can make the most out of our platform. Offering a visual explanation in a video, instead of bullet points in an email, makes customers way more likely to engage and want to work ‘alongside’ us!”

3. Customer Success – offer personalized walkthroughs for clients
Tim Cerato is a marketing automation consultant at RevEngine Marketing, a Boston-based marketing automation firm, specializing in Marketo.
Tim uses GoVideo to supplement email instructions and to provide clients with brief video tutorials. “GoVideo has proven to be a time-saver. Instead of typing a detailed email on the process of performing a given task, I can now provide clients with a personalized, visual, walkthrough. Typically in under 3 minutes.”

4. Product Design – share walkthrough videos of new designs, save your team time
Chad Whitaker is a Product Designer at Product Hunt. Product Hunt curates the best new products, every day.
Chad creates videos to show new designs or prototypes he’s working on because “being able to send a video walkthrough to the team of a design or prototype can completely cut out an inessential meeting. A tool like Vidyard GoVideo eliminates the hassle of recording, editing, converting, and uploading.”

5. Education – equip students with tools that create a better learning experience
Luke Weisenbach teaches 4th grade students at Larchmont Elementary School in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.
Luke’s use of GoVideo was an unexpected one for us – but definitely a great example! He encouraged students to share their literary essays and create presentations with other students virtually using video. “They watched presentations and were able to comment on their work in Google Classroom. Students have been using the tool at home to create more content. It is a great tool for a 21st century classroom.”
Here are two videos from Luke’s students:
6. Education – keep students engaged
Tina Monteleone is a Teacher and Instructional Technology Specialist at Point Pleasant School District in Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
Tina has been seeking new, innovative ways to personalize and differentiate learning for her students and fellow educators. “I create quick, instructional videos with a touch of a button and then easily post and share the link in my Google Classroom, website, or email. ”
