If you do not hear the ringtone then click no and Zoom will proceed through your speaker options until you can hear. You should also check the volume on your computer, in case this is down very low and needs to be raised. When testing your microphone, speak and then pause. If you hear your voice played back then this means that your microphone is working.

If you do not hear your voice played back, press no and Zoom will work through the other options to find a working microphone. Once these testing steps are completed, then Zoom will let you know that you are good to go! A box will pop up where you can change your selected speaker and microphone and test them again, adjust the speaker volume and adjust your microphone. Tip: You should always test your audio devices to ensure that they are working prior to joining or hosting a new meeting.

Consider Your Environment Your surroundings say a lot about you. Clean up and have a simple background a plain wall, a potted plant, or a bookshelf works perfectly. Zoom also provides virtual backgrounds to help you disguise even the most recklessly cluttered environments.

Lights, camera, action! Position yourself so that most of the light is coming from in front of you behind your monitor , instead of behind you.

If you have a window behind you, shut the blinds. Otherwise, you will be backlit. Barking dogs and slamming doors are not just annoying in person, they are also annoying via Zoom! Find a quiet space to meet, shut the door, and mute yourself as necessary.

There is nothing worse than someone droning on for an hour, maybe sharing a dense slide or two. Make full use of everything Zoom has to offer. Screen share, annotate shared content, send out a quick poll, solicit feedback in chat, split your attendees up into video breakout rooms, send attendees to a website and have them fill out a Google Doc. Do whatever it takes to keep your audience actively engaged.

By the way, you can tell your audience is engaged during screen sharing by using the Zoom attendee attention tracking feature.

If feasible, stand up! This keeps you dynamic and energetic. You can do this during your virtual meeting by using a standing desk. If you do stand, try a slide advancer instead of clicking next on your keyboard for a more natural experience. Position yourself so the camera is seeing you from the chest or waist up, instead of just seeing your face.

This is especially beneficial if you tend to gesture a lot. Your best teacher is yourself. Record yourself and watch the playback with a critical eye. Did you talk too quickly? Too many ums and ers? Even send the recording to a friend who you know will give you candid feedback. Stay Connected To work as efficiently as possible, make sure you integrate your other best of breed SaaS apps. We hope these best practice tips on Zoom will help you put your best foot forward!
