How to Take The Overwhelm Out Of Social Media!

The Tools I use in my Social Media Video marketing!

Social Media Video MarketingRecently I was a presentee in a webinar “Using Video In Social Media Marketing” for Fairfield County SCORE. The number one question that was asked was ‘what are the tools I use.’ So I thought I would share my tools.

1.   I use my iPhone. It does great videos.  

2.   I use a Tripod. I bought this from Amazon. It was in the CAMKIX CAMERA LENS KIT for the iPhone. I bought this. It was about 40 dollars.

3.  I bought a CAMKIX WIRELESS BLUETOOTH CAMERA SHUTTER REMOTE CONTROL for smartphones. Compatible with all IOS and Android devices. Includes a wrist strap. It was about 8 dollars from amazon.  

4.  I bought a PROFESSIONAL GRADE LAVALIER LAPEL MICROPHONE OMNIDIRECTIONAL with easy clip-on perfect for my great sound on my videos. This was about 20 dollars from Amazon.

5.  Picmonkey – To make a custom thumbnail for your video. Your custom thumbnail image should be as large as possible, as the image will also be used as the preview image in the embedded player. We recommend your custom thumbnails: Have a resolution of 1280×720 (with a minimum width of 640 pixels). Be uploaded in image formats such as .JPG, .GIF, .BMP, or .PNG.

5a. Canva – It’s a similar tool and is also awesome for creating custom graphics.

6.  Hootsuite – This is a scheduling tool. They have a free version and paid version. I do all my social media platform scheduling with this software.

7.  Wondershare Filmora – This was I use for all my video editing. I love this.

7a.  iPhone editing –  I can also do quick and minor editing directly on my iPhone in Instagram.

So those are all the tools I use when I do videos for Social Media Marketing. All the equipment was under $100 that I bought. Hope this helps. Comment below on some tools you use in video marketing?
