4 Tips for Successful Online Meetings

How to Have Productive Virtual Meetings

You have heard it before, "you get one chance to make a good first impression." Online meetings that are interrupted, have a poor connection, and are a headache to log into can be detrimental to your first meeting with customers, vendors, and pure chaos with employees.

Online communication has become the new way of meeting and connecting through just about everything; whether it be an online consultation, webinar, or online training. Having the right resources in place for your business, even when it comes to online communication, is invaluable.

Here are some ways that you can ensure your online meetings are successful:

1. Utilize tools for video conferencing and learn them well

There are a lot of options when it comes to hosting online meetings, but having a tool that you know how to operate well is essential to crushing the meeting!

You don't want to be learning the tool in the middle of the meeting!

Our favorite option is RingCentral Video and Meetings because they reduce app overload. RingCentral is an all-in-one communication tool that keeps your team working together.

2. Put together an agenda for the meeting

Have an agenda in place and share it with everyone involved to keep the meeting on track.

Pro tip: start with a 5-10 minute segment at the beginning of the meeting to allow for conversations and announcements while everyone gets settled.

3. Turn off distractions

Set standards for meetings, such as turning off notifications and closing emails. This will help keep everyone focused and avoid distraction.

4. Set a moderator

Meetings without moderators are more than likely to go off track and be chaotic. By having a moderator you can keep the meeting on task and on time, and ensure that the agenda is met.
