Recording Tips
1. Make a test recording and check the background of your video.

  • a. Is it a clutter-free area?
  • b. Does it reflect a scene that would entice your clients to book with you?
  • c. Can the viewer see part of your hotel lobby, attraction or restaurant that’s crucial to their decision making process?

2. Test your voice and adjust your distance from the screen or mobile device
3. Have some fun and let your personality shine!
