Phone Chat Tip #6 – Speak Clearly

The most common mistake people make when live chat dating is not speaking clearly. Recording a clearly audible greeting is the first and possibly most vital step to having success with live chat dating, and it makes sense; if a person can’t understand what you are saying in your greeting right off the bat, the chances of them reaching out to chat are low. So here are some tips to help make sure your greeting is crystal clear, and your live chat dating experience successful!

Limit Background Noises – When recording your greeting, make sure you are in a private, quiet environment. Your home is probably the best place to record your greeting. Choose a spot where there won't be too much noise coming in from the street and close your windows before recording. Make sure any loud appliances like the laundry machine or dishwasher aren't running, and that your TV is off even if it's in another room. You may not think these things are noisy, but a live recording picks up a lot of ambient noise!

Do a Little Prep Work – If it's your first time recording a live chat greeting and you're feeling a little nervous, then write yourself a script, or even just some bullet points. This will help you decide what you want to say and how you want to say it, and it will eliminate awkward pauses and the “umms” and “ahhs” that take away from the clarity of your greeting. Your greeting doesn't need to be too premeditated — it's important to be yourself — but a little preparation can help you record a clear and confident greeting.

Enunciate – The key to recording a clear greeting? Enunciate! Take your time with your sentences, and make sure you aren't rolling over words or mumbling. It's tempting to talk quickly as you want to say as much as possible, but a better strategy is to say things as clearly as possible. Save the details for your live chat date and take your time to say one or two interesting things in your greeting instead of rushing through ten.

One last tip: remember to listen to your greeting after recording it, to check the sound quality. If you like what you hear, you're ready to go. If not, record it again — no problem!
