6 Fun Ways to Introduce Yourself on Zoom
Here are 6 ways you can try:
I. Start With A Joke
A healthy sense of humour can make people remember you. Use a humorous comment to help your pals smile, encourage your date to feel relaxed, or, in a way, this can help curb your nervousness.
If you are not sure how to go about it, we recommend jotting some jokes down or look for some inspiration online. Also, practice. There is no harm in it. Practice maketh a man. This can help lighten the mood and make the virtual meeting enjoyable.
Here are some one-liners or witty phrases that you can use:
- I only speak what’s in my mind. I never mind what I speak.
- I am hilarious. And it is believed just by me.
- I’m so smart that I often don’t understand everything I’m saying.
- I don’t trust in astrology since I’m a Sagittarius, and we’re sceptical.
- I’m not shy. I’m simply trying to keep my magnificence in control, so I don’t intimidate you.
II. Change Your Background
If the cameras are on, put on a funky background. Keep changing it on purpose so all eyes are on you. Of course, we don’t suggest this in a professional setting. But this can be great with your internet friends or dates.
One of the best ways to introduce yourself is by placing your pet in front of the camera. Do a voice over “Hey! I am Dave. Oh wait, let me turn into a human.” Or if you do not have a pet, then ask the person on the call to show you theirs.
If no one has pets, just say, “We can completely vibe if you like dogs/cats/pandas.” or something else on the similar lines
IV. Notice Something Good About The Person
Be it a friend(s) or a date, just mention something that you noticed about them- a feature or their voice.
For example, you can say, “Wow, you sound like Morgan Freeman!” This is a fun way that can leave a mark. You can mention a funny character too, as long as no one gets offended. Keep it light and simple.
Another fun way would be to play charades. Describe your personality by actions and make people guess what type of a person you are.
VI. One Truth And Two Lies
One fantastic way is to play “one truth and two lies” All you have to do is tell three things about yourself. Make them guess which one is true about you and which two are false. It will be an exciting icebreaker.
