If you’re like me, you spent 90% of your time speaking face-to-face and engaging with clients and groups of people before Covid-19. When the pandemic hit, my world changed. I, like many business owners, had to transition from doing in-person communication to interacting with clients and other people through the phone or video conferencing. But if a business owner isn’t using all the video capabilities an app has, they’re missing out on the true power of video and visual communication.

In this episode, I discuss how the pandemic has impacted the use of video conferencing for business. I describe how I did most of my communication before the pandemic and outline the advantages of phone calls. I highlight how video calls can provide a more personal experience and improve information retention and focus when conferencing. I also underscore how visual communication can help us tell stories.


“We use video to tell a story—we are in an animated world and our eyes are used to moving objects.” - Justin Goodbread
