Have you ever noticed on a web call that it doesn’t seem like the people you’re interacting with are looking at you? That’s probably because they’re looking at you on the screen, instead of at their web cam. All great communicators know the importance of eye contact — so, when you’re on a web call, anchor your eyes to your camera while you’re speaking. This will help the people you’re speaking with feel more connected to you.
The height of your camera matters! If your web cam is below your eye level, find something around your home to raise your camera up to eye level. There are plenty of risers available for online purchase, but it’s likely you have items around your home that will do just as well — things like books, or a box — anything sturdy will be sufficient!
Your internet connection and signal affect your video quality — for uninterrupted video quality, we recommend getting off your wifi, and using a wired connection. Find your home’s wired connection, and plug it into your computer. A wired connection is always more consistent, and you’ll have a better web cam experience because of it.
