How to Make Your Video Conferences More Professional

March 31st, 2020 Comments off

The best video conferencing tip to make your remote sales calls more professional

The best salesperson can tell you that there is nothing that can compete with an in-person sales pitch, but the ability to make in-person sales and client service calls is now impeded. Video conferences are no longer just a convenient resource, they have now become the only option for face time. On Sunday, March 29, 2020, President Trump announced an extension of stay-at-home recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19 from March 31, 2020 to April 30, 2020. As with the initial orders, this requires millions of workers from hundreds of industries to disrupt their usual way of business. Americans don’t have a specific date as to when they can return to their normal routines and companies are being forced to quickly adapt to working remotely.

Despite these uncertain times, profits and quotas are still the priority and cannot be put on hold. Therefore, the amount of virtual sales calls and webinars is on the rise. Employees must adjust to making these calls from home. Technology may allow face to face meetings, but without the typical corporate environment even the best pitches can fall flat and feel unprofessional.

The #1 Video Conferencing Tool

Professional work from home sales calls

The solution? Supplying employees with branded, clean background graphics. These necessary digital interactions with prospects, customers, and co-workers need an organized and professional looking “office” setting, even when made from the home or other nontraditional business settings. With the extension of stay-at-home orders, companies cannot afford to wait out the crisis. They must adapt to holding remote meetings for the foreseeable future.

Give your team the ability to give the best possible impressions, even when they are in their own homes. Our 4ft backdrops, printed with your company logo or current marketing message, will give your employees a unique advantage. Instead of a kitchen, family photos, bookcases, or couches in the background of their video conferences, supply your team with backdrops that are easy to set up and ship quickly.

Give Employees the Resources to Succeed

help your team succeed during covid-19 working remotely

Managers can’t hesitate in giving their teams the resources to succeed. The backdrops will impress new and old clients with a simple, yet impactful, solution. Not only do the backdrops lessen the stress of preparing for video conferences, they are a fantastic branding opportunity. In addition, the displays are useful resources for other marketing needs in the future.

Another feature of video conferencing is the ability to have multiple people from multiple organizations on a call simultaneously. Company collaborations and full team sales pitches are commonly done in-person. There is no doubt which organization each person is representing in physical meetings. Indy Displays’ backdrops allow employees from the same company to easily be identified in a group video call. This eliminates any possible confusion as to which organization each speaker belongs.

The lightweight displays are easy to assemble and take up little space when not in use. The fabric is high-quality and won’t cause any glare. Indy Displays is offering a discount on a purchase of five or more. The displays can ship out to employees at their respective homes.

Don’t let this unfortunate crisis slow down results! Many experts online have already indicated that what clients and prospects see behind remote workers matters and recommend not letting backgrounds appear cluttered, too busy, or distracting. This sudden change let many companies unprepared. Embrace the chaos and be the team that adapts the quickest and remains the most professional. The use of these portable, easy-to-assemble backdrop display stands ensure company personnel is maintaining a professional image during these difficult and ever-evolving times.

Here are some additional tips to for success when working from home:

Pop Up Displays Indianapolis

The best word to describe pop up displays is “Reliable”.  The traditional pop up display revolutionized the trade show industry becoming the first portable display to hit the market decades ago and is still a popular choice for many exhibitors today.  Indy Displays offers a premium pop up display that has been a top seller for years.  Not only because of the reliability, but also due to the lifetime warranty.  This lifetime warranty doesn’t only cover manufacturer defects like most pop up displays you will find online, but it includes a lifetime warranty on usage as well.  What this full warranty means, is that the frame and magnetic channel bars will be covered no matter how or when they are damaged.  We have clients that have had shipping carriers damage their pop up frame many years after purchase and get it replaced free of charge.  In addition to the traditional pop up display, tension fabric pop up displays continue to grow in popularity.  These portable displays include a traditional pop up frame with a tension fabric mural graphic attached making set up a breeze and only taking seconds!  Choose from table top options all the way up to island exhibit kits.  Frames are available straight or curved.

Retractable Banner Stands

Retractable banner stands are a simple clean way to create an eye-catching trade show back wall.  Customers also use these units for retail solutions or for smaller events where booth space is minimal.  Retractable banners can include many types of graphics.  Most of the low cost options you see online include a simple vinyl banner with the retractable hardware.  Vinyl banners will get the job done, and we offer this solution with most of our standard and economy banner stand solutions.  However, the best route to take is upgrading to a premium graphic option for your retractable banners.  Our best selling premium banner solution is what we call the “Diamond Finish”.  This is a dye sublimation graphic printed on poly knit with a thin laminate backing added.  What this combination creates is an opaque blocking behind the graphic to ensure your images and colors pop under lighting.  In addition, the laminate backing keeps the banner flat for life without the worry of your banner having the sides curl on you.

Why are people using hanging trade show signs?

January 24th, 2014 Comments off

Why do we suggest using hanging trade show signs?

The objective of exhibiting at a trade show can vary but generally it is to promote yourself as well as your business, to gain clients, and drive sales.  The objective of the trade show display is to draw people towards your space, to keep them there, and make you look professional and stand out from the crowd.  Adding some depth to your booth space can help attract people into your booth space from the walk way but what if you want to attract people from across the room or conference center?

This is where hanging trade show signs can help you achieve your objectives in a way other products can’t.  You don’t have to worry about sight lines taking away from your brand with a hanging sign.  This also adds another dimension to your trade show display, height.

Once you’ve made the decision to add a hanging sign to your display, you will still need to consider a few things.  What shape will work best with your space and design theme?  What size will you need?  Do you want the capability for the sign to rotate?


We have a variety of shapes to fit all your needs, from a circular design, tapered circular (larger at the top, smaller at the bottom), ellipse oval, three varieties of triangle (regular, tapered, and curved), square, and a curved square design.

Tapered Circular Hanging Signs

Tapered Circular Hanging Sign


The sizes available are different for each shape, but typically come in three different lengths and widths but may vary by product.  The signs can range from 8 – 15 feet long and 14” – 48” tall but will vary by the shape.  These products pack a big punch but are very portable and easy to assemble.


The ultimate luxury is to have a hanging sign that rotates.  Not only will your logo be displayed above your competition, but it will be visible from multiple angles, with a rotation hanging sign, your logo will be visible from nearly anywhere on the trade show floor meaning you won’t have to worry which

Curved Square Hanging Signs

side your logo is facing.  Exhibitors comment on how the rotation of the hanging sign not only looks great but also draws a lot of attention from prospective clients.  The rotating motor comes in three different sizes to go along with the size of the sign, the larger the sign is the larger the motor capacity needs to be.  No matter the size, the standard rotating speed is 2 RPM.

Companies spend a lot of time and money trying to differentiate themselves from the competition.  Hanging trade show signs are a great way to differentiate yourself from the competition at the perfect time, in front of a large grouping of your top potential clients.

Why Exhibitors are choosing Tension Fabric Displays and Structures

January 2nd, 2014 Comments off

No matter what trade show, graphics printed on tension fabric displays can be seen on backdrop displays, hanging signs, and counters.  The popularity of this printing system is most likely due to product advantages like these:

  1. Tension fabric graphics deliver high quality color and images.
  2. Fabric graphics are much less expensive than laminate graphics.
  3. Tension fabric graphics are very lightweight and easy to pack and ship.
  4. Fabric graphics are much easier to maintain and can last much longer than laminate graphics.  In addition, fabric does not chip, dent, or delaminate.

The most common tension fabric display system is the tension fabric pop up display.  It’s simply the combination of a fabric mural graphic and traditional popup display frame.  Below is an example of our popular tension fabric popup display.  This display system can easily pack into a canvas bag or a portable hard case.  In addition, you can choose to add the case to counter conversion kit which will include a fabric graphic that place over the case/counter.
