Building engagement with an online audience without relying on social media is tough. Online events hosted on platforms like Zoom and Crowdcast tend to become one-way conversations between you the host and the audience. But what if you could engage your audience and create a fun and inspiring way to foster connections and build engagement at the same time?Welcome to Remo.
With Remo you can build engagement for your next online event in a number of ways. We put together a list of 35 ways to use Remo to nurture a sense of belonging, connections and foster a place for your audience to connect just like in real life, but online.
1. Switch on your MicGone are the days of 'chat' only engagement. Turn on your microphone and get talking with your audience. Just like a Google Hangout or Skype call, but powered with much more features to build valuable connections.

2. Use your cameraHave you ever wanted to put a picture to a name? Now you can. By switching on access to your camera, you can connect face to face, from the comfort of your home.

3. Enlarge your video If you find the video feature too small, you can enlarge not only your video but also the video of other people during an event.

4. Return to the mapYou just finished a conversation with an enlarged video view. What next? Return the map, join a new table and connect with someone else.

(This what a map looks like).
