If you have a photo or photos that you would like me to use in promotional materials you can send them to Chris@PopcornFinance.com.

Recording Method

Computer & Microphone

This is my favorite recording method because it will give us the best audio quality.

Browser

We will be using Zencastr to record and their service works best on the Chrome browser.  I will send you a link to our recording session about 10 to 15 minutes before our scheduled recording time. 

The first thing you will need to do is download & install the Chrome Browser if you don’t already have it installed.  You can Click Here to download or just do a quick Google search for Chrome Browser.

If you already have Chrome installed, make sure that you are on the latest version.

Microphone

If you have a computer & are looking for a microphone to use, I place a couple of my favorites below.

This is the mic I’m currently using & is great because it comes with everything you need.  Microphone, usb cable & a stand.

Here is a cheaper alternative.  I can’t vouch for its sound quality, but it does come with everything you will need to record. Microphone, usb cable, stand & foam windscreen.

Call-In from Phone

If you do not have a computer & microphone available, you can use your smart phone using the Skype app.  Just go to the App Store & search for Skype.  Sign up, log in & then send me your Skype username.

Quick Tips

  • Connect to WiFi before our call begins to ensure the best audio quality.
  • Find a quiet place to sit.  We want to eliminate as much background noise as possible.
  • For the best audio quality use a good pair of headphones with a built in microphone or hold the handset directly to your ear.  Not all headsets are created equal so it can be hard to predict how yours will sound.  Try testing your headset prior to our call using a recording app such as the voice memo app on iOS.

I hope these resources have been helpful & I look forward to talking with you very soon!
