​​​​​​​Be sure to have privacy: Spouses, partners, roommates, children, and pets can be a distraction to you or your audience should they interrupt your presentation. Try to get some privacy by closing a door if you can and asking for their cooperation until you are finished.

Check your background: In a videoconference, your audience isn’t just looking at you. They also see whatever is in the background behind you. Make sure your camera is positioned so that whatever is behind you gives a professional appearance and isn’t distracting to attendees.

Connect with your audience: It can be more difficult to connect with an audience when you’re not in the same room as them. Start your presentation with casual small talk to break the ice and involve everyone, then ask questions during the meat of the call, so everyone participates and feels involved.
