What are the tools, etc. you use for youtube?

Video Marketing

Hey everyone! I really want to step up my YouTube game. Can you tell me your favorite tools, equipment, and software that you use?

Hi,
The YETI microphone. It's great. I bought it last year when I decided to make a Udemy course.

Best of luck!

Thanks so much for the suggestion!

Great questions Christina, I'd been wondering many of these myself but hadn't gotten around to asking yet.
Also, thanks to everyone who contributed to the answers; just another reason why this is such a fantastic community.

Glad to help, Rick!

Hey Christina,

We may have chatted about this previously, but in case I'm mistaken, here's the software I use to create videos: Also use PowerPoint's feature for creating soundless videos where I need to add audio...

...and, here's what I found recently to use when editing my videos: https://www.eparrs.com/blog/best-video-editor-software/

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks so much!!

Hi Christina, I do not use everything you have listed but what I do use is a Yeti Blu microphone, Camtasia for editing, a webcam C99, and a small ring light.

The microphone and Camtasia I find very important. The webcam is not as good as I would like. A recording camera is much better and the lighting is very important but I have not purchased any good lighting yet. it is more important to get the videos out there at first.

you can look up Benji's Dad (Chris Myles) on youtube and he has listed in his description what he uses also.

Great, thanks for your insights, Laura!

I currently have a ring light and a microphone, but they're not the best so I am seeing what else is out there.

You use Camtasia for editing? How do you like it? Is it easy to use, and does it do what you want?

I'll definitely see what Chris uses. I know he's killing it on YouTube!

- Christina

I like Camtasia best of all but it is pricey. Camtasia has everything I need plus there are some excellent videos on YouTube that explain some of the more in-depth parts. Essentino Artists have really good videos on Camtasia.

I also use Powerpoint as Trish does for some effects and teaching in some videos.

And I use Canva to make my thumbnails.

You don't have to start with the best. I feel the microphone and editor are the most important to begin.
