Selfie ring light and tripod: great for live streaming or quick videos. I just purchased this and am trying it out but I will post a review soon! It costs under $20!!


Tripods + accessories:

Joby Gorilla Pod: Universal tripod for all of the cameras listed here.

Smartphone Mount Adapter: This is a great mount to hold your smartphone when using a tripod. Can flip both vertically and horizontally. 

Palette Gear Expert Kit: I didn’t know what this was when I received it but it has been my FAVORITE editing tool, I am able to edit with my hands by using the buttons, knobs and sliders instead of just my mouse. Highly recommend this tool plus it works with A LOT of different software and is editable.

 

$500 and up:

Canon E0S 70D: Great for high quality YouTube Videos and Online Course Videos

iPhone 8 : great for recording quick videos, doing live videos and even for recording YouTube Videos.

Software:

iMovie:

iMovie is free on your mac or iPhone. I recommend starting here before moving to another platform for editing.

Adobe Premiere Pro:

I recently made the switch to Adobe Premiere Pro for editing my videos and I LOVE it. I learned how to edit on iMovie and used Final Cut Pro in the past. When I started creating how to tutorials I used Screenflow but I kept having to hack things and hated paying for each upgrade.

With Premiere Pro, I am able to do things like:

  • 🎬 Create video templates (so I’m not recreating the wheel each time I create a new video)

  • 🗣 Quickly edit sound so my sound levels are even. (Nothing is worse than having to constantly turn your volume up and down when watching videos!)

  • ✂️ Editing is a breeze especially with my logickeyboard skin and logickeyboard with all of the hot keys and this Palette Gear Expert kit! (Click here to see the photo.)

YouTube Related Software + Gear:

TubeBuddy:

TubeBuddy is a tool that I use for YouTube. It’s a google chrome extension with a lot of helpful tools. I am able to monitor my account, see how my tags are helping me rank on YouTube, find amazing royalty free background music for my videos, and so much more. 

Cost: Free (paid options available)

I’m on the Pro Plan which I bought as a lifetime deal a year ago and it is definitely worth it. Click here to grab a lifetime deal for TubeBuddy Pro for $40.
