Overall Satisfaction with Loom

We use Loom in two capacities, the first being training for clients. We use it to screengrab video of how to do very specific tasks in platforms like Infusionsoft and Google Ads. The second thing we use it for is to prove or show what we did in a specific order to get the results we did on a project to our clients. Since it is your computer, it is easier to maneuver instead of trying to show and tell on another machine.
  • Screenshare
  • Screenshare with video or without video
  • Makes it easy to disseminate the recorded video via a custom and unique URL.
  • You cannot draw when you are recording so it is hard to bring attention to a particular area of your screen.
  • Editing the video you create is very rudimentary and is not the most intuitive.
  • Free video capturing software that has saved us a ton of employee time in trying to explain or show particular and unique order of operations on a platform.
Loom is the best video screen sharer that we have come across. Its ease of use and relative value in its free product make it an easy stand out when we went looking for a platform to use. Though there are different video recording platforms out there that can do similar things to Loom, none are as easy to use and straightforward.
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.
Loom is the easiest platform to use. There is nobody in my company that does not feel 100% comfortable with the tool or has had any issues using it or setting it up. Furthermore, we have never had any issues with clients being able to use the tool or send us a video as a response.
To my knowledge, there is not really a need for Loom to be integrated into anything, but know that it does integrate with Slack if needed.
Loom is not intended for presentations that would be considered client ready. Its main suggested use is for internally used training or explainer videos. Using the tool to bring attention to a specific order of operations on a particular platform that might not have an existing explainer video on it.
