Original content by Grant Schneider

This post has been inspired by three of our friends in Active Rain.  First, Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 commented on my post that it would be great to share my uses for Zoom in our businesses (and personal life, for that matter).  I thought that was a great idea and planned to do it.

Today I read a great post by Ron and Alexandra Seigel  Marketing Savvy: The Importance of Marketing Perspective! The take away - Be kind, caring, and compassionate.  Give freely to help others in this time of need rather than taking advantage.  They linked to another post by Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD   And now for some good news...

I want to do my part, give back and present good uses and information that will improve your business and even your personal life.  Why Zoom?  Let me show you.

I can share a PointPoint presentations but agents could host a virtual open house different from a video because you would move the pictures as if conducting a real tour and taking questions as you go.  Here is what the Zoom screen looks like in the Gallery Mode (all participants appear along the side)

Zoom with sharing in Gallery ModeBelow it is in Speaker Mode.  This is great if you are giving a presentation and someone asks a question.  Zoom highlights the current speaker and this is much more engaging.

Zoom with sharing in Speaker modeIf you would like to hold a group meeting you can virtually gather people from all over into the Zoom Room like this.

50 person Zoom Gallery ViewNow if you want people to ask questions and highlight the person asking the question speaker view will fill the screen while the other participants' pictures are accross the top.

Tommorrow morning at 7am I will be visiting a BNI chapter holding a Zoom meeting.  Then at 10am I will have a coaching session with a manager in an organization.  At 2pm I will be doing entrepreneur business coaching.  Then at 3:30pm I will participate in a early virtual happy hour.  I could not have accomplished that much in a day if I were going in person.

On Saturday I will conduct my virtual HR Certification class from 10am to 3pm using Zoom.  We will take a half hour for lunch.  I cover the same and have conversations and engagement but I don't have to drive back and forth to Fordham University.

Oh yes, and it has personal benefits.  We have Zoom meetings all at once with our children and extended family almost like attending a virtual family gathering.

There is a free version but it limits you to one to ones or 40 minutes with multiple people.  The paid version starts at 150 per year.  That's it!  At one time I was renting conference space at 150 each time!  This is a no brainer!

If anyone has any individual questions please reach out to me.  I would love to help you.

Lynn we have been using Zoom at church.  There are a few security issues with the free version, so we purchased the full version which allows us to password protect who is allowed into the Zoom Meeting.  The full version was only $150 and we got a 20% discount.
