In this video, I focus in how to get great sound in your videos using an external mic.
The reality is that after your content and how you show up, audio is the most important element in your videos.
If you don’t have good sound, people aren’t going to be able to connect with you and your message. So if your audio is too low or too high, if there’s too much static or background noise, people are going to check out.
The good news is that you don’t have to sink hundreds of dollars into a mic to get great-sounding videos. If you have an iPhone, simply use the headset that came with your phone. Drop the cords down your shirt and clip the mic to your shirt using an alligator clip. Check out this video blog from Jody Jelas for more details on rigging your iPhone up for great sound.
Or if you do prefer to invest in a mic that you’ll use for years to come, I recommend anything by Sennheiser. I use the Sennheiser EW100 G3 lavalier mic. If you look closely, you’ll see it clipped to my collar on every video I shoot… This set-up ran me a hefty $750, but my videos ALWAYS sound great and that’s worth a lot to me. 🙂
