Disclosure: Some companies that I mention are my marketing and training partners. I am an affiliate of others. I get commissions for purchases made through affiliate links on this page. I only recommend products and services from companies I trust, tools I’ve used, and those that I highly recommend and feel may be of value to you and beneficial to your marketing efforts.

I know many of you may be really concerned about the Coronavirus outbreak. A few people have even changed their in-person training appointments with me to online training because they don’t want to leave their house unless they have to.

The news can be extremely alarming, and because many of you work from home (and often have to go out to meet clients), I have added Zoom Meetings training to my list of online and in-person workshops. This means that you can learn how to use Zoom, so you can meet your clients online.

Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing platform that can be used for online meetings, webinars, recordings, and live messaging….

As a small business owner, you would most likely lose business if you were ever unable to leave your house.

Did you realize that meeting your clients online was an option for you? Well, it can be and as our world is changing, I highly recommend you at least learn how to conduct virtual meetings just in case you ever need to do so.

For those of you who are afraid to be seen on video, 🙂 you’ll be happy to know that you have the option to turn the camera off. (I usually do this when I’ve scheduled demos with strangers at companies that I’m not familiar with. LOL!)


I use Zoom Meetings to share my screen with clients when I do online training and also use their Webinar platform as well. At times, I even do mobile app training from my phone.

It is very inexpensive and super convenient! I have a client that only does online meetings, consultations, and training with Zoom. That’s right, she only leaves her home to run errands. How cool is that?!
