When it comes to web conference calls, visuals are a huge must. Not only do they illustrate the message you are trying to convey for the call but they also show data they might convince the person you are on the call with that you know what you are talking about. Visuals might include social media data, infographs, or some charts found in a study.
Now the question comes up of not WHY do you need visuals for a web conference call or online meeting but HOW do you make those visuals. Where do you get the images or what tools do you need to make such images?
Most people take screenshots of data they have to put in their presentation. They might also use custom graphics or clipart. There are dozens of sites online that give clipart images that you can use. Canva is a great website to use for easy custom graphics.
Another way to get images is to create an infographic. You can either use one that is already made or create your own which may take time. You can use Easel.ly for easy templates to use.
You can use Photoshop to edit images you have or Paint or possibly even Powerpoint which lets you put text over images and you can just screenshot what you see and paste the screenshot into Paint or Photoshop. Irfanview is another commonly used and very popular image editor and is free.
So there you have it. Creating visuals is a great way to keep your call engaging and fun.
