Let me help you out.
How your event looks and sounds is a big deal.
If done right, your audience will stay engaged, their love for your organization will deepen and ultimately they will donate.
I’ve outlined my top products in each category. They can be ordered on Amazon or curbside pickup from Best Buy.
$0 – Most computers will have semi-decent audio for a live stream.
If you want to upgrade, here are two of my favorites:
Rechargeable Ring Light – $17.99 Great for small spaces and focusing lighting directly on someone’s face. If you engage with TicTok or Instagram Reels, most creators use some type of ring light.
More lighting options:
*Lighting makes a tremendous difference even if someone is using an old computer camera.
$0 – Not necessary if an updated computer is being used with good lighting
Additional camera options:
Good: Amcrest – $39.99 1080p camera (microphone isn’t great)
Better: Aoboco w/ Light – $58.85 1080p camera with ring light and microphone (great if you want to eliminate a light purchase + camera)
Best: Logitech – $79.99 1080p camera, known as a quality brand but has often been out of stock
