Webinar Best Practices: How to deliver value and avoid audience dissatisfaction!

In a recent interview on PRMM, Ken Molay of Webinar Success shares some insight on webinars.  In his years of writing about webinars, Ken has seen attendance rates drop from 50-60% to an average of 33%. 

To combat this, Ken recommends:

"Companies who host webinars need to 'up their game' and concentrate on creating value for their attendees in both content and presentation."

He also shares three things marketers should consider when using webinars for their programs:

  1. Frame everything in terms of audience interest and benefits.
     
  2. Don't take a successful webinar over the top until you reach "list exhaustion."
     
  3. Turning attendees into prospects is greatly influenced by your speed of response after the event.

Ken's suggestions for marketers may seem like common sense, but people fall into the trap over and over again.

  • Audience interest and benefits: We love talking about what we do. S why wouldn't everyone else enjoy it too? 

    Unfortunately, in the same way we like talking about what we do, others like to focus on their interests and areas.  If your webinar doesn't appeal to them, it doesn't matter how interesting it is to you, and they won't feel inspired to attend.
     

  • List exhaustion: Makes sense, take something that "works" and repeat it over and over. 

    Sadly, it's hard to see when that should end.  People already have an incredible amount of content to pick from. If you appear to be just running on replay, there's little interest.  Fresh content is important for your web marketing efforts, apply the same rule to your webinars.
     

  • Conversion: It seems everyone is offering webinars. 

    That's great for attendees, giving them a great variety to choose from.  As the company offering webinars, it makes your challenge even more difficult.  If you were able to get them attend your webinar, don't let the connection cool.  Your webinar may have been wedged into their schedule on a day chock full of meetings. So… get back to them quickly.

Ken also says that as usage becomes more common, presenters spend less time and effort on preparation and that companies who host webinars need to “up their game” and concentrate on creating value for their attendees in both content and presentation.

And in my humble opinion, these are two of the most important points made in the article.

If you've been reading my stuff for any length of time, you already know that I am constantly encouraging my readers and customers to spend some time planning ahead and put together presentations that are content rich, educational, entertaining, and above all else interactive.

Not sure how to accomplish all this? Check out my Webinar Best Practices article and video about keeping your audience engaged with interactive presentations. 

Ken shared some really great advice in this interview. You can read the full interview here.

How to Use VoIP Web Conferencing for Live Customer Support on Your Website!

Are you causing undo frustration for your website visitors by hiding behind an online help desk or email support system?

Wait… Before you answer, let me expand on that with another question…

Are you losing potential customers because it's too hard for your website visitors to contact you?

Based on my own web browsing experience and "information seeking" habits, I would have to say the answer to both of these questions (in many cases) is a resounding YES!

That is if you are making it hard for your prospective customers to actually speak with you, or to a live customer support rep (a.k.a. a real person). 

With all the cool "hands off" automation tools, help desk software, online trouble ticket and automated follow up systems we have available these days, many business owners seem to think that doing business online does not require talking to prospects.

How to dynamically update your webinar and webcast recordings.

I know this might be a stupid question. But…

Have you ever put together a powerpoint presentation, an html slide show (or any other type of presentation materials) and then realized you had typos, dead hyperlinks or images not displaying properly?

If you're like me, I'm sure you have. And although it is mostly just an annoyance to have to go back and fix these problems, it's really not such a big deal.
 

  • But what if you didn't notice that your presentation had problems before your live webinar event?
     
  • What if you didn't notice these problems until you were well into your live event and had already started recording?
     
  • Or even worse, what if you didn't notice these problems until you had already published your recorded webinar or webcast for all the world to see?

I think it would be safe to say that unless you are able to dynamically update the content within your webcast recordings, you've probably just thrown a lot of time, effort and energy out the window.

And more than likely, you'd have to do it all over again!

A few additional question to think about…

Webinar Best Practices: How to engage your prospects with web meetings

In many industries, tradeshows and live hotel meetings no longer pack the same punch they  used to. It doesn't take a masters degree in marketing to realize that Web-based conferencing technology has raised the bar for engaging prospects and converting them into customers.

Not to mention that in today's economic climate, many entrepreneurs and companies have come to realize that it is a complete waste of time (not to mention a huge waste of money) to fly dozens of people to one location to watch a powerpoint presentation.

Obviously, web seminars (a.k.a. webinars) enable organizations to instantly interact with large groups of students, customers and prospects at once, effectively delivering targeted messages, while at the same time save thousands of dollars in unnecesarry travel expenses.  

I have personally been hosting online training and sales webinars since 1998. I have learned many things over the years. But I'd have to say that the single most important webinar best practice is that you absolutely must engage your audience!  

In my humble opinion, if you want to host webinars, you must try to duplicate the same excitement, speak with the same enthusiasm, engage and interact with your audience in the same way you would at a live hotel event. After all, web 2.0 prospects need human interaction too!

Admittedly, it is a little tough to pull off because in a webinar environment, all you really have to keep your audience's attention is your voice and your presentation materials.

How To Reproduce Recorded Webinars & Webcasts For Downloading Onto PDA Devices & iTunes

The following is an excerpt from a article I found about “Content Repurposing” at www.encyclopedia.jrank.org. It was obviously written by a propeller head. But you should definitely read it.

http://encyclopedia.jrank.org/articles/pages/6565/Content-Repurposing-for-Small-Devices.html

Here’s that excerpt, followed by my interpretation of what the article actually says, along with a video that will show you how you can repurpose your recorded webinars (a.k.a. webcasts) to look pretty good on a PDA (hand held device)…

Web Conferencing Comparison: Are your web meetings accessible?

 

“Web Meet Live does not compete with WebEx, GoToWebinar, Live Meeting, or any other web conferencing service provider. We are a different type of solution that organizations turn to after those products fail to meet their accessibility and ease of use requirements.”

I'd like to start this post by telling you that according to a recent FCC study, 33% of Americans (that's 93 million) don't use fast Internet, citing cost and complexity as a factor in their refusal to enter the 20th century.

You can read the entire FCC study here if you like.

You might be asking… What does this have to do with a web conferencing comparison? And I'll get to that in just a few seconds.

But what you really should be asking yourself right now are two simple questions…

  1. Does your web conference service provider support dial up and satellite users?
    And if the answer is NO…
     
  2. Do you really want to exclude 93 million dial up and satellite users from attending your online meetings?
