A webinar is an online seminar that turns a presentation into a real-time conversation from anywhere in the world. Webinars allow large groups of participants to engage in online discussions or training events and share audio, documents or slides – even when they’re not in the same place as the meeting host or in the same room where the event or presentation is taking place.
Used effectively, webinars help you better understand your audience, their pain points and the topics most relevant to them.
Effective webinars often pick up where traditional slide presentations leave off, adding screen sharing, presenter video and audio and downloadable materials.
An effective and engaging webinar starts with three roles: an organizer, at least one presenter and attendees. A few quick steps can help you reach your target audience and spread your message to people online.
You’ll be more successful if you have a clear goal in mind. What are you trying to accomplish?
What are your attendees’ pain points? What topics might resonate with them? Use those insights to create a compelling webinar title.
