Be natural in your taping delivery on camer.

Try to forget you’re reading, and let your natural personality come through. It can be difficult to force yourself to feel natural, but that very skill is important. When you relax and connect with your audience through the camera lens, they’ll have no idea you’re reading from a teleprompter. That’s the difference between good and great.

Look at the camera, not the words

The best part of a teleprompter is that it lets you look directly into the camera. Make sure you do just that. Look at the camera lens, not at the words just beyond it. It’s a small distinction.

Control the pace

The operator should match your pace, not the other way around. Don’t get so caught up trying to read all the words as fast as they come on screen that you go too fast. Deliver the material at a pace that’s comfortable and they’ll follow.

Practice, practice, practice

There is no substitute for practice. The more time you spend reading from a teleprompter, the easier it will be. It’s never easy the first time, but practice, makes perfect!
