A video meeting: so you rarely held one, suddenly you don’t do anything else. Such an online meeting works differently than the oldskool physical meeting. For example, participants are more easily distracted. How do you really hold attention during a video meeting? We give you 5 tips.
Tip 1: Provide an interactive video meeting
An interactive meeting is better than a meeting with mostly one-way traffic. Avoid long monologues, but ask pointed questions. Divide the tasks among your team during the meeting, then make it even more interactive. Appoint a punctual team member as timekeeper and bombard that tech-savvy junior on your team as the technical hero of your video meeting. Some tools offer additional applications to make a meeting more interactive, such as using vivid demos and online virtual reality or 3D, which hold attention much longer than a flat PowerPoint.
Tip 2: Choose the right tool for your video meeting
It matters a lot which solution you use for video conferencing. Ideally, choose a low-threshold tool that your team will use frequently and happily. Stay away from software and apps that require installation, especially on the client side. A tool with agenda option ensures that a tight agenda is ready before the meeting. This is an ideal way to prepare and efficiently hold a meeting. Get a tool that can adopt your corporate identity and can really do more than facilitate a video call and share a screen. When everything happens in one place, everyone stays involved.
Tip 3: Get the most out of your video conference and take advantage of all the features
Once you’ve chosen a tool for your video conference? Then make sure at least one team member becomes an expert. He or she knows all the possibilities, helps and updates colleagues, so that from now on calls run without technical hiccups. Instead, thanks to that expert, you take advantage of all the smart applications the service offers. From good features such as adjusted network speed to ensure high-quality calls to video calls that automatically adjust to screen width. That’s how you keep the attention from beginning to end. This is how you get your team to accelerate!
Tip 4: Have a clear agenda for your video meeting
An agenda ensures that everyone knows clearly in advance the purpose of the video meeting. Not only that: appoint a person in charge for each item, then everyone can prepare themselves properly based on the agenda. There are meeting tools with handy templates that will help you create an agenda. Find a tool that can automatically share your agenda with participants in advance, this way everyone has a chance to prepare properly and work more efficiently.
Tip 5: Integrate your customer journey into your meetings
Devise – and experiment with – a strategy that breaks down into different types of meetings. Create a chronological outline that matches your sales funnel. Make sure your online meeting tool allows you to create meeting templates tailored to the different stages of the customer journey. In this way, you can continuously improve the way you work.
