Zoom has fast become the holy grail of communication tools for corporate and salespeople connecting socially distant colleagues around the globe and entertaining them with custom Zoom backgrounds and potato filters along the way. Sales professionals have also had to adapt to new strategies and now present sales pitches via video conferencing in the recent work-from-home lifestyle.
Although, as with any new solution, Zoom isn’t perfect. Sometimes we miss calls. We have to wrangle kids, cats, or bad internet connections. Or maybe we have another meeting that clashes with the Zoom schedule. Whatever the reason, it’s important for business managers to record and share workplace Zoom calls for those who missed out.
Sounds pretty simple right? Not exactly. Sure, you can record your entire meeting and email it to the team. But if you do, rest assured it'll be filled with awkward pauses and silences, chit-chat and mics on mute.
As for sales pitches, or client follow-ups, the most efficient and effective way to get your point across without losing your audience’s attention will be editing your Zoom recording before sharing it with potential clients.

1. Brand your video conferencing recording
Firstly, if your video recording is going to be sent to different teams, businesses or clients, you want them to know exactly whose video they are watching.
2. Cut out the clutter in sales pitches

Clean up your video conferencing recordings and make them more professional. How? By trimming away anything that’s not necessary.
3. Add structure to video conferencing
Now that your video is filled with need-to-know info only, it’s time to add some structural elements. Start off by giving your video a title and intro. Add in motion titles to indicate the names of speakers. Helpful for big global companies. Also helpful if a salesperson is trying cold outreach or “outbound prospecting”
Then, split your video conferencing call into logical sections. For example, a sales team meeting could be split into the following sections:
