How to Use a Green Screen Background to Visually Engage Buyers & Clients
Mario quickly jumps from the Florida coast to a New York City high rise, to a Miami penthouse, to a yacht in the video above. But why? Why would you want to use a green screen and act like you’re somewhere that you’re not?
Viveka actually lives in the mountains of Colorado, while Mario jumped from coast to coast in seconds. It’s your preference and adds a bit of fun. The digital screen background you choose can be as realistic or unrealistic as you like.
Benefits of Green Screens
A green screen background is really just a green curtain, but…
- It’s visually appealing.
- It eliminates distractions from your home office, putting the focus on you and your messaging instead of your background.
- It’s an opportunity for salespeople to create visually stimulating engagement with the buyer when doing digital selling with video. Mario suggests to personalize it by creating a unique banner background with your logo or your prospects or customers.
If you use Zoom for your video calls, they offer a simple way to change out the background if you have a green screen. They also have a feature we haven’t seen on any other video platforms called “Touch up my appearance.” It’s a filter that adds a glow and Viveka says it “takes off two or three years of your appearance.” Try it out for a boost to your self-confidence.A green screen isn't about tricking people into believing somewhere you're not. It eliminates distractions from your background, putting the focus on you and your messaging. Learn some #SellingWithVideo tips here! #DigitalSales Click To Tweet

My LinkedIn account was ranking on the first page for best mommys blog keyword quite a few years back and I didn’t have any idea. While working, I stumbled upon the Analytic section of LinkedIn and saw that most of the visitors are coming from search engine later on I realized that in my profile I’ve used “Mommy’s blog” word a lot of time and that is the reason why it was ranking well on SERP. This is how I came to know about SEO and I was also amazed by the fact that how easy it was to rank for competitive keywords back then. Anyways loved your article and please share more tips on SEO.
