11 Tools & Equipment I Use To Create Content

content creator tools

I’m super excited to share this week’s post with you guys! It’s different from what I normally do, but 2021 is all about expanding our horizons, am I right! So this week I am sharing 11 tools and pieces of equipment that I use when creating content!

If you’ve ever thought about starting a blog or YouTube channel or upping your Instagram game, or becoming a content creator of any sorts, this post is for you!

I went to college for Radio/TV/Film, and then got a job in television, so the equipment that I have has accumulated over the years, and I make great use of it when it comes to creating content for my blog.

To see which tools and pieces of equipment I am talking about, check out my latest YouTube video:

And before wrapping up this post, it is important for me to note that just because you own fancy equipment or have tools to use, doesn’t mean you are going to create breathtaking content overnight. And the same can be said if you don’t have this equipment at your disposal – that doesn’t mean you can’t create great content.

At the end of the day, the more you educate yourself, the better your content will turn out. Additionally, the more creative you get the more your content will stand out. There really is no right or wrong way to create. Each person has their own taste and personality, which in turn creates a personal brand. So use all of this to your advantage and keep these things in mind when you are shooting, writing, etc.

Happy creating!
