Since I started sharing tips and tricks about YouTube in Vlogs here in WA, many have asked me about what equipment you need to get started.

You do not need a lot or a big budget, but there are some things you should consider.

I will go over that in this video.

Hey Mikael
Thanks for this video. Very helpful.

Just wanted to ask something.Lets say that we started on the basic equipment.Then as time goes on and the sales start rolling in, is it okay then to reshoot the same video again? Let's say,you got new info...can we shoot another video with the same keyword?

Yes, definitely. When there are updates and when it is relevant, you definitely can make a new and updated video.

Great, thanks
Take care

You are welcome.

Thanks for the great class.. on equipent I can use..Thanks very much

Glad you liked it.

Sounds easy to start with such simple Equipment. thanks..Clotilda

Keeping it simple is the best way to get started, in my opinion.

Thats what I sugest and think Id do for a starts..thanks

You are welcome.

Hey Mikael, are you from Denmark? I believe it's a country with a strong economy. Thanks for your helpful content. You also get special lighting for video recording studios that are inexpensive and better than the ring lights. I suggest you use a green screen with a beautiful office background or a lounge background. With the right lighting and a greenscreen, you will have a beautiful-looking professional background that is undetectable.

I have already subscribed to your YouTube channel. You should upload videos consistently and more frequently. Post stuff about making money online with different ways to make money. My channel is about the same, but also digital marketing, social media strategy, and a lot more related things. I have signed up for ScreenPal recently. Do they have monthly plan options too? Also, your thumbnails should look nice with some text and graphics to make the scroller want to click to watch the videos.

Yes, I am from Denmark.

Not sure I understand your advice about publishing videos more often, though. I publish one per day, so maybe you have looked at the wrong channel:-)

As for Screenpal then yes they have a monthly plan. I believe the cheapest is $6 per month for the monthly plan and the same plan is $3 or something like that for a yearly plan.

Haha, sorry... Forgive me. I subscribe to quite a lot of channels, and I have not watched your latest video(s). I have not received any of your videos for days and I subscribe to "All" videos from you. What is your channel name again?

I do not really share my channel name publicly here not to make it seem like self-promotion. But you can see it in the Vlog I made 2 weeks ago where I show my subscriber count

It's okay, I will check in my list of subscribed channels. Thanks again.

Thanks to you too.

I can't find your channel now. Please give me a hint at least. I am already subscribed, I dunno why I can't find it.

Great information Mikael, i have a question, are there any tools i can use to create video content without having to get in front of the camera or on a microphone.
Thank you. Paudge.

When using a screen recorder you do not have to record yourself so you can use it without being on camera.

As for not using a microphone then there are different options. If you have a script you can for example use an AI voice as some of themare becoming quite good. Or you can hire a voice over artist. And certain types of videos can also be made without speech at all. It all depends on the type of videos you are planning to make.

Thank you Mikael, I'm planning on giving YouTube a go fairly soon.

You are welcome

Hey there, you should start a YouTube channel. There is a huge potential for making very good money. You just need to choose a specific niche or related niches and make and upload videos frequently and consistently.

Thanks for the reply. It's something I have been thinking about but I don't have any experience in that area, but I'd love to learn, maybe you could point me in the right direction??
Paudge

What niches do you work in at the moment? You could start with a ring light and a phone with a high-quality camera, but get a good-quality noise-canceling mic to plug into your phone. Then also get a tripod to hold your phone. You can use BigVU or ScreenPal to record your videos. BigVU has a teleprompter you can use to read from your script as you talk. This will avoid hesitation while speaking.

You obviously have to write your script first, you can use AI to write a captivating hook, intro, and the full script. Then you just edit and tweak the text to suit your needs and your voice. Then use Elevenlabs or something similar to make a human-like voiceover. You don't have to record your face or voice. You can make a faceless YouTube channel and still make fantastic money.

If you want to get started, I advise you to just keep it simple. The most important is to just get the first videos made and then learn in the process. There are some great classes here inside WA also that can give you some ideas about how to get started.
But a simple screen recording with a voice-over that can definitely just be your own is one of the easiest ways to get started. You can choose to show your face or do it without your face.

Lots of info there Hein, thank you. I will certainly check it out. My niche is affiliate marketing promoting the WA site here.
Paudge.

Yeah that's the way I think I will go, just keep it simple until I find my feet, great Mikael, thanks again.
Paudge.

Ok, great. How is it going for you so far?

I'll get back to you on that Hein.
Paudge.

Some Great information, Mikael!

Jeff

Glad you liked it.
