11 ways to not embarrass yourself on a videoconference
According to the United States Census Bureau and the Small Business Administration there are more than 28 million small businesses in the U.S..
Approximately 60 percent are identified as self-employed and more than half of all small businesses were home-based. With so many business owners not having a commercial office in which to see clients, it is no surprise that more meetings are taking place online. Video conferencing, however, is not without its do's and taboos.
If you are a home-based entrepreneur or telecommuting employee, you will want to consider these etiquette guidelines for business video chats:
Follow meeting protocol. Never initiate a video call unannounced. Send a meeting request or invite and agenda ahead of time as appropriate. Always send a message via the chat feature just before calling to be sure the other party is ready. Allow time for introductions when multiple parties are involved. Follow up the call with any meeting notes and support documents within 24 hours or within the agreed upon timeframe.
