24 Mar Keep your business connected with Zoom
As more and more businesses move to remote with the current events, we are having to find new ways to communicate. One of the leaders in remote communication is Zoom.
Zoom is an amazing, easy to use, free service which allows you to communicate with your team from anywhere!
Zoom’s main features include:
- View Webinar
- Conference Rooms
- Phone System
- Business IM
As a small business you will be mainly utilising the meetings and chat features of Zoom. The main advantages of using Zoom are:
- Quick and easy to start, join and collaborate across any device.
- Use Zoom on the go with your mobile or tablet.
- Communicate using a webcam, voice chat or share screen.
- Use the chat feature to instantly message other team members on Zoom.
- Integrate Zoom with your mail program to easily send invitations for meetings.
- FREE video calls for 40 minutes for a free account (better than Skype’s free account).
- Extensive knowledge base.

Once logged in you will be able to see any existing meetings for the day. Here you can quickly create a new meeting, joining a meeting that’s in progress, schedule in a future meeting or share screen.
The chat works just like any other messaging software. It is great for when you just want to send a quick message to other members of your team.
Here you can see all the meetings you have been invited to. You can also start, copy the invitation, edit or delete meetings.
Settings can be found by clicking your profile photo and clicking Settings. Here you can setup or adjust the settings for Zoom. You may need to adjust the Video and Audio settings to use your webcam or headset.
That’s it! You are now ready to invite more of your team and start meetings!
For the time being, Mediamojo will be using Zoom instead of face to face meetings. If you have any questions about Zoom, please check out their extensive knowledge base here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us
