Thank you for participating in a Goodlook Marketing audio or video publication

As you know, we will be recording these publications either in audio or video format. Then, for those recordings that deserve to be shared, Goodlook Marketing will broadly distribute them via our proprietary process in multiple formats (original, written transcriptions, video version of audio, infographics, video excerpts, etc.).

If set up in advance, we can also share these publications via live sessions with an online audience (e.g., on a webpage, on Facebook). These live sessions will still be recorded, with the recording distributed at a later time.

Goodlook Marketing has invested heavily in the technology to make participating in these discussions simple and easy.

At the scheduled time of a recording (which can occur at almost any time — days, evenings, weekends), you will receive an email with an Internet link. When you click on that link, you will join the discussion. A discussion can be just audio or can be video and audio (voice plus the display of guest faces and/or computer screens).

You will be required to use the Chrome browser. If you don’t have access to this browser, you should download the program at https://www.google.com/chrome and follow the instructions for installing it on your computer.

For audio recordings, the audio will be captured via a microphone plugged into the USB port on your computer. For video recordings, the video will be captured via an external webcam plugged into a USB port on your computer. You will be required to wear headphones (wireless — or wired plugged into your computer’s headphone jack) during the recording to minimize cross-talk and echo.

If you don’t have the needed equipment, Goodlook Marketing will advise you on what to purchase.

Once the discussion ends — for audio recordings only — you must keep the recording window open on your computer for a few minutes to enable the locally-recorded file to upload to our servers.

For each discussion, you will need to complete and submit the form below. Once we receive your submission, someone will be in contact with you to schedule the discussion/recording.

Before our first online discussion, we will do a trial recording to make sure everything is working as it should. See the bottom of this page for a description of some of what we will be testing.

We look forward to working with you.

Trial Recording — What We Will Be Checking

Microphone Quality

We will be testing your USB microphone to make sure the sound quality is adequate

Headset

We will be testing to make sure your wireless or wired headset adequately prevents cross-talk and echo.

Chrome Browser Settings

We will ensure your Chrome browser is set to standard settings.

Hard Drive Space

Our audio recording software must be able to save a local backup of each recording to your computer, which requires about two gigabytes (GB) of hard-drive space per recording.

This means that you need about 20 GB of free space on your computer because the Chrome browser allows our application to use only about 20% of the space available.

If you don’t have enough hard-drive space, our audio recording system will notify us. We won’t be able to do the recording until the needed space is freed up and the Chrome browser is closed and restarted.

If you have done previous recordings with us and we get this warning of insufficient hard-drive space, the files from previous recordings can be deleted from your computer by following these instructions:
