Webinars are truly unlike anything else; if done right, you can keep your audience engaged for hours on end and that’s something that videos put simply, struggle to do. Not only that, but your audience can also ask questions and get real-time feedback on the training.
It’s a free webinar… Who cares? Well, your audience does. And just because it’s “free” doesn’t mean they’re not exchanging anything for the content. To attend a webinar, your prospect has to register, put the date in her calendar, set aside time for the event, show up at the right time, and then give you 1–3 hours of their time.
With the right kind of content, your webinars should soft-sell your prospects without ever having to “hard close” anybody. A lot of businesses make the mistake of teaching and THEN selling, when in reality, the best webinars teach AND sell at the same time.
This is one of the greatest reasons why webinars are the best. The ability to have a conversation with hundreds of people… virtually, right over the internet.

what are webinars?
A webinar is an online event that is hosted by an organization/company and broadcast to a select group of individuals through their computers via the Internet. (A webinar is sometimes also referred to as a “webcast”, “online event” or “web seminar”.)
A webinar allows a speaker from the hosting organization/company to share PowerPoint presentations, videos, web pages or other multimedia content with audiences that can be located anywhere.
Webinars typically have audio and visual components. The visual component of a webinar is shared through a web conferencing tool or Internet browser. The audio portion of a webinar is usually broadcast through the audience’s computers (through speakers and media players) or through the telephone.
A webinar also allows the hosting organization/company to interact with an audience. The audience can ask the speaker or moderator (who is leading the webinar) questions in real-time through an instant messaging tool or e-mail.
common mistakes brands make when organising webinars.
when you decide to invest in organising a webinar , here are few challenges we help you overcome.
Not making your webinar interactive - By leaving out interaction between you and your attendees, you miss out on leaving your mark as a brand.
Not having a well-designed presentation - Hosting a webinar without a well-designed presentation is another dangerous webinar mistake to avoid.
Not respecting your audience’s time - Another webinar mistake to avoid is not respecting your attendee’s time. The simplest and most effective way to avoid this one is to start and end your webinar on time.
Pitching your audience too hard for a sale - One of the more lethal webinar mistakes is coming off as too salesy during your presentation.
Not promoting your webinar enough - Our final webinar mistake to avoid today is not sufficiently promoting your webinar, which can result in poor registration and show-up rates.
Assuming people know what you’re promoting - Last but certainly not least, remember that you have built and are marketing a product that not everyone in the world understands or listens to, yet.
Best Practices for Creating Engaging & Meaningful webinars
partner with a virtual event platform To begin with, hosting webinars online through virtual events platforms works best. The platform helps through planning, strategizing, and hosting a successful webinar and presenting live to a global audience.
Open for All - Globalise A virtual platform allows you to create a webinar agenda that welcomes a global audience. Anyone from anywhere can join in the webinar sessions and educate themselves on the topic in discussion.
Arrange a webinar host The best way to go about a webinar is to have a well-informed host. It is important to have somebody available at all times to attend to the speaker and audience.
Add informative content A great webinar is defined by the rich content presented to the audiences during the live or recorded sessions. This content is either a graphical representation or pre-recorded videos.
Create engagement opportunities When hosting webinar sessions through a virtual platform, the networking and engagement features help establish a good connection with the audience.
Personalise the experience Another important factor to consider while setting up a virtual webinar is to fully customize the experience for your audiences. The best way to go about it is to create a branded environment with the company logo, colors, theme, and representative avatars.
