    Hi, even though half the stuff the so called gurus put out are total B.S and rehashed, they do have slick salespages and promotional videos that hooks us, even though we know the product sucks.

    How do the gurus make those cool PowerPoint videos advertising their product? The ones where they say what is on the screen?

    Do they use some sort of template? A special font?

    I tried creating one of those videos but it looked amateurish and not as fancy as theirs.

    Any tips?

    What do you mean by,

    They use a Mic to record their voice on top of the video?

    You can use CAMTASIA for this. Just record, speak and then export the video.

    No I actually mean videos like the ones of
    where people talk through a mic but you cant see their face. I know you can record the screen, but I thought they used some special software for the slick graphics, pictures, quality, and transitions.

    You can do that in Camtasia. I guess with a power point you would record the screen, start the powerpoint and speak into your mic through the slides.
