The only limitation of the free screen recording software, Jing, is that each video can only be five minutes long.
But in my experience, the combination of recording a 5-minute video, sending it to a transcriptionist, having it transcribed, getting it up to my virtual assistant, setting it up as a post and proofreading it one last time before publishing it; takes no longer than five minutes for me and a few hours for my assistant team.
As a website owner and a blogger, I have to follow certain guidelines in order to have a website that works well. Actually, there is a guideline from the search engines like Google and Yahoo that in order to be seen as a useful content page, any page should contain at least about 300 words.
Of course, if those words do not have any meaning, this is not recommended. But if you can convey your message in at least that much amount of words, then this will give you some boost in the rankings.
Now with the 5-minute Jing video, I have made the experience that the resulting transcribed blog posts often are well above that limit. So, this is a good thing. Also, the 5-minute limit of Jing forces you to express yourself in a condensed and efficient manner.
Since you do not have all the time in the world to talk about your pet and your grandmother, you need to get to the point quickly. So in a way, the limitation of Jing becomes an advantage of some sort.
At least for me, personally, it is a tool I use daily when I work together with my virtual assistants and I would not want to miss it anymore.

by: JomvieFor me, this is the best way of communicating. There’s no need of figuring things out once the task is handed over because it’s all laid out right in front of you.
And this is definitely a great tool as well to all who often blog or write posts or article to avoid writer’s block 😀

by: FrancisWhen I started giving instructions to my VAs, I used email only.
Sending instructions via email and answering questions that come back and forth took at least the same amount of time than the task itself.
I wouldn’t have it any other way now.
