Looking for the Right Tools for YouTube Marketing Part 2
Yesterday, I discussed finding the right tools for YouTube marketing if you’re interested in becoming a “YouTube Superstar”. You can use this for Internet Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, or just to help with your website. At the time, I did not know there would be a part 2 to that article. After writing the post, I continued to search around the Internet to see what other people are saying about using the iPhone for professional video. I thought the results were interesting so I just wanted to share with you.
Here is a video I found by iphonevideoproducer and he goes into a lot of detail about setting up a complete environment for creating professional video. Yesterday, I was primarily focused on the camera hardware. He covers camera hardware as well as lighting and setting the right scene. Impressive and informative!
Here is a basic video from iphoneographers that shows you some tips for using an iPhone to make videos. They cover setting up to use your iPhone’s camera and even cover a few helpful apps to make you videos look even more professional.
Lastly, I found some really cool and helpful videos from AppSumo. Unfortunately, I cannot share their videos here. At least I didn’t see a way to so here is the link to the article. You should definitely take a look at their iPhone setup videos as they show you a lot of cool accessories so you can record video from different angles.
After looking at all of this, I felt like I had enough information to make a good decision. Like I always say, it’s not about just having the information…it’s about taking action once you have the information. That’s not my catchphrase…lots of people say it. Anyway, I put in my order for iPhone accessories.
If you’re serious about YouTube marketing, you can look through this and find out what works best for your needs. Here is what I finally chose:
First, I wanted the Sony Wireless external microphone. That’s what I was looking for originally so be prepared. If you are interested in one accessory, you’ll probably end up getting a few more. Just don’t forget, you will need to get the adapter from KVConnection. Make sure you read the details and get the one for wireless microphones.
Next, I got the Glif Tripod Mount and Stand. It’s interesting how simple the design is and how it provides a lot of application options.
Next, I went with the Joby GripTight GorillaPod Stand. I like the flexibility of this stand and how it can grip or grab objects so you can get good video shots. As light as the iPhone is (and I imagine this stand is), I think I can always find a way to take a video.
Lastly, I ordered the Ravelli Lightweight Tripod. I think I will use this for applications when I’m just talking or interviewing other people.
So, I think that is everything. Now, I am just waiting for everything to arrive.
