Best Video Conferencing Tips

1) Cut Down on Presentation Time

Delivering a presentation via video conferencing can be challenging to conduct in the same way as the would be in-person at the office. To implement a shortened presentation time, try emailing the presentation information out to the team beforehand, create an schedule with the main points to send out, and make sure the presentation is interactive for your attendees watching. This way the presentation has a clear direction, helping to minimize time used to virtually present.

2) Test Out Your Technology Beforehand

One of the top reasons for delayed video conferences is people not knowing how to use the technology. This lag time of downloading, speaker testing, etc. really kills the meeting’s momentum from the start. Prior to the meeting starting, the organizer should send out instructions setting up all steps for attendees to take prior to the meeting.

Free programs that can be used include Zoom, Skype, and Google Hangouts. Video conferencing also help to personalize the conversations and keep staff engaged during the meetings.
