The Consumer Wants to Watch Videos

If you are thinking of starting an online business, as daunting as being in and creating a video can be, video creation is a valuable skill in this digital era. Learning how to make a video doesn’t have to be as scary as it seems.  Filming a video starts with your smart phone. 

To Film a Video You Need A Smart Phone

Our phones are so "smart", the quality of the picture is all you need for a good quality video. You don't have to invest in a more expensive camera,  you hold all you need in the palm of your hand. 

Improve Sound Quality With a Microphone

For sound quality you will need to invest in a microphone. Microphones are quite inexpensive and can be purchased online through Amazon. Depending if you are filming individually or together you can find microphones on Amazon to fit your needs. Click the pictures below and you will be taken directly to Amazon.

The Tripod Stand

A tripod stand is great for those of us who may not always have a steady hand. We purchased a tripod stand that could work if we were sitting or standing. On windy days, it's better to have the tripod placed at a lower level. The stand can be quite unsteady when it it fully extended.

The Selfie Stick

Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would purchase a selfie stick. Well in online business it's a good tool to have. When you get comfortable behind a camera .... (with practice you will) .... it's helpful to carry a selfie stick for when the mood to film a video strikes you! If you're like us, you will begin to see the world differently. We became much for aware of our surroundings.

Combine the Selfie Stick and the Tripod

Look for a combination of selfie-stick and tripod.  Learn how to create a video with these simple, inexpensive tools. As scary as the thought of creating and being in a video can be, it just takes practice.
