The once-off party
Many people are reluctant to join a video call, either because they feel self-concious or they find the technology confusing to use.
Here are our top tips for overcoming their initial hesitation:
- Identify a once-off occasion for a trial run. A birthday party, for example, an event that everyone feels compelled to support.
- Limit the guest list. Four screens or less will give the best experience.
- Reassure your guests that all of the details will be taken care of. They just need to turn up.
- Go the extra mile with the technical setup to ensure that everyone enjoys the occasion and feels a true sense of togetherness.
Having experienced the fun of a well-organised virtual occasion, your guests will be all set to leverage these technologies in their daily lives as a way to overcome isolation.
