Keeping your customers interested and invested in your business is more important than ever. This can present a difficult pivot for life insurance agents and other careers that traditionally rely on face-to-face interactions. However, with the right tools and some creative thinking, you can connect more virtually and maintain closer relationships with customers.
Even when your customers are used to talking to you in person, it’s important to have some “visibility” out of it. Now the common method is video calls and conferencing. Although it may not be everyone’s favorite method after widespread use since the pandemic began, when done well it is an effective communication tool.
Hints to help you make professional video calls
Prepare and test video before your call. Feeling confident is the key to looking better on a video call. You can create that feeling by being well prepared. Prepare any materials you need in advance and test out techniques, audio, and video if you’re not familiar with use.
Set a flatter camera angle and distance. The best camera angles are head-on and at eye level. You don’t want people to feel like they’re looking at you up or down. Adjust your camera or your sitting position so that your image is well framed. In addition, facing the brightest source of light (usually a window) will provide a brighter and flatter image.

Make your profile picture and background image look professional. It helps to strengthen your professional brand with a professional headshot and clean background. You can also add branding to any image, like your company logo. The clean background also helps reduce any distractions.
