How to Choose a Zoom Background

How to Choose a Zoom Background

Does your virtual background match your personal brand? See my tips on choosing a great background and the importance of lighting.

Your virtual background sends a message whether you want it to or not.

When you go to upload a new background, think about your audience. 

Who is going to be on your call or watch your recorded video? 

Do you want to promote your business or personal brand? 

Do you want to be in an office setting or outdoor? 

Do you want a background that is no-nonsense and doesn’t attract attention or would you like to have something that’s a conversation piece to break the ice? 

These are all things to consider. 

In this video, I show you some different backgrounds and show you the lighting I have for mine. 

Lighting is always important for video, but even more so when you’re using a virtual background. 

Check out Etsy, Amazon and Canva for high quality backgrounds!
