You record the video using Zoom, but where do you store it?

I’m glad you asked!

That’s what I’ll cover in this post–practical hands-on, screen sharing tips. 


Cloud-based Storage Resources


1. AWS S3 – Free Tier with storage up to 5 GB

S3 provides a variety of options for large businesses. You need to make sure you review the options and select the best features for your business.

2. YouTube – Private | Unlisted | Public

YouTube is a great way to go if you offer free content and want to grow your YouTube channel. It’s free and sharable.

Chose the setting that serves you best. For example,

If you’re uploading a promotional video, you will select, public.

If you’re uploading a video for a specific viewing audience, you will select, unlisted. Anyone with the “unlisted” URL will have access.

3. Google Drive – Free Cloud Storage for PDFs, Videos, Sheets, and more!

Google Drive is a great place to store files and videos. Teams can share documents, and you can work on a project from any mobile device.

As far as video storage, it’s a great option.

4. Vimeo – This is a paid video hosting and sharing platform. 

Vimeo is a paid option, but it’s so customizable. The presentation of the video is clean without distracting titles or prompts.

Link to Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/

Tier Information: https://vimeo.com/upgrade?vcid=33590&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&gclid=Cj0KCQjwiYL3BRDVARIsAF9E4Gcjwu0K9gHE4obNhf5yWMQSScljhvIIQ0GIPb_U8EyJP8bCGzjRcnYaAvU2EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds


Watch the Video for Step-by-step Tour!


The best way to share a video is to provide a video link. If you choose to use its shortcode, keep in mind that shortcode video viewing is up to the browser discretion, such a Chome, Firefox, or Edge. Sometimes, a viewer’s browser will create viewing issues.


Stay resilient!
