These days, most business owners use computers and technology. For example, you would have a computerised bookkeeping system in your business. Now we know that you will have say some very specific instructions for a certain bookkeeping process. Or, for that matter, ANY SOFTWARE PROGRAM your staff may be using.
Wouldn’t it be great to avoid those ‘pesky’ questions from staff about HOW to do something on the computer. Or, perhaps your existing staff know how to do something – but if they left your employment, would you know to train the replacement?
SOLUTION: Record a number of very short videos (less than 5 minutes).
Though – don’t record how to use your business software. e.g. how to add a contact, etc. Those videos will already exist on Youtube and on the software developer’s websites.
What you want to do is – only record a SPECIFIC procedure unique to your business. For example, a special way your staff create an invoice, or use MS Outlook for a particular task, or use your in-house production software, etc. Also you don’t want to record dozens of videos for seldom performed tasks either – just the most common daily or weekly functions in your business.
Video is simply just another documentation tool that can be used to free up your time as the business owner. Use it well.
