Snazz up your Zoom! 

Did you know you can now upload a video to your Zoom waiting room? 

Recording a welcome message could be a really nice touch for everyone waiting to join the call. It suggests you’re going to use the technology at your disposal to create an engaging session for your participants, so they join with a receptive mindset. 

It also allows you to:

βœ” Set your expectations for the session, e.g., mics off unless speaking and cameras on
βœ” Rundown the agenda and cover any housekeeping points
βœ” Point out any functionality or apps you may be using
βœ” Let them know who to communicate with in the event of a problem (your co-host, for example)

It’s really easy to do:

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Go to settings
πŸ‘‰πŸ» Waiting room options
πŸ‘‰πŸ» Customise
πŸ‘‰πŸ» Upload video

βœ” Ensure you’re on the latest version of Zoom - 5.7.3 or later
βœ” MP4, MOV or M4V formats
βœ” Up to 30MB

If you don’t feel comfortable recording a video, you can, of course, upload your logo or text.

For my thoughts about running an online workshop, take a read of my blog here.

If you’d like a Zoom co-host to support you during your meetings or workshops, allowing you to concentrate on delivering your content and building up a rapport with your participants, please feel free to contact me. Let’s just have a chat and see where it takes us!
