    Speaking As A Social Media “Influencer”, If You Want To Start Creating Your Own Content Here’s A Few Things You Need And How To Use Them

    Becoming TikTok famous just got a whole lot easier.

    I've been making YouTube videos for about five years now, and I make content for Instagram and TikTok whenever I'm not writing here. If you're interested in creating video or photographic content, there's a few things worth investing in that can make the whole process a lot easier for you. Here are a few of the things I use, and would recommend getting your hands on!

    Let's kick it off with a classic that you've probably seen quite a few people use (and for good reason) – a Neewer ring light.

    If you're looking for something a little less grand (and a little less pricey), this desk-sized ring light might take your fancy.

    These lens wipes will always be needed, trust me on that.

    This foldable stool comes in handier than you may think.

    Self-shooting becomes way easier with a Bluetooth clicker like this one.

    Want to get a little creative? Make use of these LED strip lights.

    When it comes to photo editing, this stylus pen is a big help.

    If you don't want to invest in a ring light, this tripod should make it to your wish list.

    Speaking of phone stands, you're guaranteed to get a lot of use out of this one.
