You didn’t look at the time on your phone because it was stuck to your ear listening to a customer drone on in excruciating detail how he wants the installation to go and suddenly in a panic, you realize you’re late to an online staff call your boss set up to present a new company partner and you break off from your customer as best you can and head to your backroom still wearing your Bruce Springsteen tee shirt and you crash through boxes of supplies and hit the Zoom link and just as you go live on video you topple over your desk chair into the fish tank. You look and sound like an idiot. You need help (and maybe a refreshed resume).
This Asher Sales Sense Podcast – “How Not to Look and Sound Like an Idiot During Online Meetings” – features host Kyla O’Connell with guest Susan Finch, Vice President for Operations at the Funnel Media Group (our podcast channel) and head of Susan Finch Solutions in Beaverton, Oregon. In addition to print and graphics, social media weaving, content writing, and managing, website streamlining, and training, Susan is also a seasoned podcast host, video host, and voiceover professional. As audio and video content has become more integral to content strategy, she guides clients to embrace the potential.
What kind of background is best for your online meeting? Is a selfie cool for your headshot? How should you applaud a good point made? How many things should you be doing during the meeting?

Listen in to learn the answers to these questions and hear stories of epic fails online so you can gain a more
professional online persona (and stay out of that fish tank).
