As a lot of you know, I have worked from home for a number of years now. I’ve done graphic design, freelance writing, bloggin, network marketing, training videos, coaching – you name it and I have probably done it…. wait,.. ok not THAT! How dare you! ?

Anyway hey, one of the things I get asked the most is what tools I use for creating my videos. So I thought it might be super useful to put together this Ultimate Resource Guide to Creating Videos Like a Pro – just for you! It was tough to choose what to include on this page, but trust me, here you will find only the top products, books, trainings that I love. Ready to dig in? Let’s do this!
Tools for Filming High-Quality Videos from Your Phone
Selfie Stick Tripod – Forget about buying a selfie stick plus a tripod. Here is a two for one! Plus it comes bluetooth enabled and super easy to use. This is what I wish I would have started out using when I began doing video from my phone.
Rode Lavalier Mic – an affordable microphone you can clip onto your shirt for better sound quality. THIS is the one recommended by nearly anyone in the industry producing high quality videos. You can purchase the cheaper mics but beware, you get what you pay for!
Lumee DUO Case Light – a smart phone case that lights up your face. This is the light that provides the most flattering lighting on the go (only for iPhones). I’m a nerd, I have to have the rose pink. What about you? ?
Portable LED Selfie Ring Light – This is such a great value especially for the price! This is lighting for your phone on the go. Super convenient and fits in your purse! 3 levels of lighting to get that perfect glow for selfies for videos.
LS-PRO 3 in 1 Clip-on Cell Phone Camera Lens Kit – 15x Macro Lens+0.36x, Super Wide Angle Lens+180° (this is the lens I use all the time to capture a wider background and give my videos some breathing room. I also have the Fisheye Lens for my smart phone and use it in the car.
Flexible Car Holder Mount and Stand – This mount allows you to easily attach your phone in the car to do live videos.
