With zero technical knowledge, a bit of creativity and a minimal amount of kit (seriously, we're talking a mobile phone here) you can start your vlog, have a tonne of fun, do more in your business and reach more people.
I'll see you on the course.
- Complete beginners who want to start their very first VLOG
- People who are nervous about throwing themselves out there and creating vlogs and video content about something they love

So now you've figured out what you're using, how do you get the best out of it? Check out the additional resources to help with some of this stuff.
Odd as it sounds, there are some pretty substantial no-nos when it comes to what to wear on camera; let's take a look.
One big concern for people is often making sure that they still look good on camera - and if you get this wrong it can be frustrating how you can look bigger (or smaller) than you'd actually like. Lens choice plays a big factor here, and there are a few ways you can affect this when filming.
LinkedIn can be an unexpected candidate to post stuff to, but it can also be incredibly powerful if used correctly.
So it's time to upgrade your kit. But how do you go about doing so?
