Your users want fast support and self-service so they don't have to wait. Many startups have created Knowledge Bases where users can explore common questions, view tutorials, or book demos. Videos are a great way to help users learn about your product and a fast way for you to share advice.

FAQs

What is a Knowledge Base video?

Knowledge Base videos are product tutorials that you add to your knowledge base. Their job is to teach users how your product works. Typically knowledge base videos are grouped by product function or feature. For example, in Tella's knowledge base you'll find separate videos for our re-recording feature and our trimming feature.

How long should my Knowledge Base videos be?

We always suggest keeping your knowledge base videos simple, short and clear. Ideally one topic per video. The exception to this is if you're doing a complete product walkthrough or tutorial (like the one above from Stacker).

What should I include in my startup's Knowledge Base videos?

Include clear step-by-step instructions and a visual to support what you are saying. You can use Tella's slides feature to help with this. Whenever you need to demo how to do something a screen recording works best.
