How to Open a Virtual Meeting
Got ONE MINUTE? And want to know the ONE THING you can do to immediately improve your connection with your customer and increase interaction on virtual sales calls?
Always start with full video.
90% of the salespeople I coach are making the mistake of starting a video call already in a PowerPoint. The first few moments of any virtual sales call, presentation, or demo should be dedicated to establishing a connection with your customer. In order to do that, you need to be as visible as possible so that your audience can see your face, see your eyes and truly feel like they are connecting to a real person. When your image is a small box shoved to the corner of a screen, you will not feel real to your customer and your connection will suffer.
Remember to use the power of the human face and go full video often and you will draw the attention of your audience with ease and greatly improve your connection (and sales!).
PRO TIP: Plan ahead! As you move through your video call, identify moments that smoothly allow for you to transition between full video and sharing your screen: Perhaps it’s when you have finished up a topic and are summarizing. Perhaps it’s when you are taking questions at the end (this one is a given!).
