Zoom etiquette tips – Small Business Corner
With the global pandemic, we are all using the Zoom app these days. Zoom meetings are the new norm, which means you should always be looking to brush up on proper Zoom call etiquette. That is why we have put together some tips for you!
You will want to prepare yourself before your meeting starts. Proper preparation shows respect for those attending the Zoom call and sends a subtle signal that you value their time. You want to make sure you are 100% ready to go when you login to a meeting!
The Mute Button
Zoom has a wonderful feature that allows you to mute your microphone when you are not speaking. Be sure to use it! The mute button is one of the best ways to minimize distracting sounds during your Zoom call. Just remember to unmute yourself when it is your turn to talk.
When attending a Zoom call, be present. You will want to refrain from checking emails, texting on your phone, or trying to catch up on other non-meeting related tasks. This kind of behavior is rude and unproductive to the Zoom call you are a part of.
A Zoom call is NOT the perfect time to grab a bite to eat! No one wants to watch you eat your lunch, or listen to you chew, while they try to deliver a presentation. Go ahead and practice good Zoom call etiquette, and reschedule your lunch break. (As with most in-person meetings, coffee, tea, and other beverages are acceptable!)
After your Zoom call you will finally be able to sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that you have adhered to Zoom call etiquette best practices. Practicing good Zoom etiquette is critical to ensuring that your meetings are professional, efficient, and valuable.
We hope you find these tips helpful!
