Loom

Loom is perfect if you do anything on a computer or phone and you need to document it. Rather than firing up another screen recording tool, recording your video, then downloading the file and uploading it to Youtube THEN sharing that link (my old workflow)—I can now just press one button, select the area of my screen I want to record, record my video, and send it within seconds. No extra software or steps.

Olapic

If your brand has a good amount of steady social content, and you like to show it on your site along with shoppable links at the catalog and also at the product level, Olapic is an easy to use utiilty and also allows you to render your Instagram feed shoppable. In our case, we had a very active social presence but did not leverage it directly for the customers to shop from it, so Olapic filled that need.

Pros

Loom

  • Integrated right into Chrome - If I want to make a screen-capture video of a particular window in Chrome, I just start the Loom extension from within that window. It automatically records the entire window, my audio, computer audio and/or my video camera. In other words, it makes recording a screen capture video fast and almost automatic.
  • I like that it automatically saves it to my Loom account profile and also provides a URL I can send to people. I think the utility of this feature is pretty obvious. The sequence is 1. Start loom 2. click the RECORD button 3. record 4. click the STOP button 5. copy and paste the URL which loom automatically generates.
  • The way they have chosen to provide online organizing of my videos is pretty well executed. I can create folders and move related videos into those folders. This becomes really important when you start creating a lot of videos.

Cons

Loom

  • Settings could be more configurable - I rarely want my face on the video. Every time I need to turn it off... ideally this could be a setting to have it disabled by default.
  • The UI while recording could be improved. I often forget the keyboard shortcuts, and a simpler red button floating on the screen or somethign would be great to stop the recording simply as needed.
  • The desktop app (in beta) overrides some standard keyboard shortcuts in OSX, which is frustrating.

Olapic

  • It's a niche solution. If you're looking for niche, it's great. But if you're looking for an enterprise tool connected to many different systems and data solutions, it might not be for you.
  • The revenue analytics are not very reliable.
  • Price. This seems like it would be a great solution for medium size businesses, but the price is not feasible for the product.

Loom is a very good product which has many different use cases that help us to keep our products supported, allow our products to be sold, and allow us to talk with one another in the company. There are not many glaring issues with Loom that would hold me back from continuing to use this service but the main question will be how they stack up with the other video products on the market and their direct competition.

Loom is one of the easiest software solutions that I've used. Their Chrome extension is very intuitive and I hear that the desktop app is phenomenal. Once you've stopped the recording, the video is instantly available to share via the link that Loom provides you. The recipient only needs to click on the link and click 'play' on the Loom landing page. So easy.

It is the best platform that I have come across that does exactly what I want it to do when I want it to do it. It is there when I need it (browser extension) and hidden when I don't. I have never had an issue with the service and find it to be one of the most convenient tools to use when an email or Slack won't suffice.

I use Loom for simple tasks. Never used customer support really. It's so simple to use. I haven't had any real issue with Loom which would require customer support to help me out. So I just put 5 because I don't know if the customer support is good or bad since I never used, so I'm kind of neutral.

Alternatives Considered

Loom

For desktop recordings, I've only used Quicktime. Loom is overall a nicer looking and functioning tool for recording videos, although there are a couple tools that Quicktime has (like splicing videos and selecting a specific recording size) that I wish Loom had

We have not used many competitors, but we stick with Olapic because of the capabilities that it offers. We don't use much of the reporting functionality, but it is a great tool to allow for collaboration between team members. It also allows us options when it comes to sharing content on the website, as it has gallary-style plug ins to display UGC.

Return on Investment

Loom

  • We're able to keep hiring managers happier which typically can increase the number of hires we have. That, in turn, increases revenue. Happy hiring managers also mean more renewals of partnerships
  • We're able to get information to the hiring manager quicker, which can lead to quicker hiring times, which means more money to use faster.

  • In general, we are seeing customers react to the content and use the links for shopping on our site. Their analytics is perhaps more optimistic than I believe, but content is king, and customers like to see more images of the product in more sizes and situations
  • We are starting to make custom brand pages and landing pages for advertising campaigns, and it's always great to add believable UGC to those pages to showcase a brand's style and general feel.
  • Tracking our social content is a good way to get a more generalized feel of how the brand is tracking, and who is creating content regarding our brand, so that is a beneficial side effect of constantly monitoring our tags.
