I love this video! I'm looking for ways to create videos for our own company's products. Would you mind telling me what software you used to create this one?

Hi Debbie,

Great question. Obviously the "action" takes place within a HootSuite dashboard, but the tool we used to record the screencast is called Screenflow:

It's not too difficult to use, and a great investment at about $100 USD. It also allows you to record from your webcam and microphone and use picture-in-picture for hosting screencasts. Give it a look!

Hope this is helpful,

Hey Jordan,

Thanks for the info! We are definitely going to give it a try. Guess i'm going to have to bring my MacBook to work, as we only have windows machines.
