Hi, my name is Jason from automation made simple. I run a no-code automation company based in the UK. So although most of my clients are based in the UK, I'm actually living in Jakarta Indonesia.

So I moved here about one year ago and it posed a little bit of a challenge in that there's a smaller window of opportunity for face-to-face meetings.

So what I decided to do was to use loom to record videos, and rather than have the face-to-face meetings, I will just ask the questions to my client, maybe demonstrate what I'm working on, and then just send them the video, which they can watch in their own time.

So something that started out as a disadvantage, I think has really become an advantage in that there's less meetings, which demand your time at a specific time, this way they can reply in their own time.

And what used to happen was they would reply in email, but more frequently now they are recording videos themselves and replying back that way.

So there's just a much better way to communicate, I think. So it's just friendlier. And also when you're demonstrating, which I'll show next it's visual, they can see exactly what I'm referring to rather than just some text on the page.

So let me just quickly show you how I will run through and share the screen. Okay. So when I'm sharing the screen here, I will just make the, um, the video a little bit smaller so that I'm out the way and put myself in the corner.

So I really want to focus on what I'm demonstrating to two of them. So I can just show them this kind of thing, which I'm working on an automation.

So we'll just show them and talk them through the scenarios. And it's just more visual, easier for them to understand.

And more likely to, if it's a question I'm posing, then it's more likely to get a correct answer rather than to, and froing with emails, um, that I misunderstood.

So just a much better way of working. So this is the screen-share inside of it. And at one more thing, I'll just talk about if I just make this a little bit bigger, so you can see me is another reason that I use loom is it's great for documentation.

So when I'm creating these automations, what I will do is do some diagrams of these automations. But for myself, I also like to just record a video of myself, running through explaining what everything is.

Now. This is very useful, especially when you look back in six months, time, something you've built previously. It's nice just to be able to have yourself, talk to you and explain exactly what it might, if you did six months ago and that accompanied with the documentation and the workflows is all I need to quickly get back into the mindset of building this automation.

If it's a troubleshooting or maybe some modifications to do. So this is how I use loom.
