Pastor Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life, reflects on his own crisis of purpose in the wake of his book’s wild success. He explains his belief that God’s intention is for each of us to use our talents and influence to do good.
“What do you have that you’ve been given…What are you doing with what you have been given…. That to me is what Purpose driven is all about.”
You may have heard that webinars are some of the most effective ways to connect with an audience. After all, that’s why you are interested in hosting one. But why are they so effective and how well do they stack up to the other forms of communication and instruction out there. In this article, we will explore the reasons that webinars work so well for connecting to an audience and passing on information so that you can determine whether or not you should hold you own webinar.
Most of the time, when you hold a webinar it is going to be live. In fact, that’s pretty much the definition of a webinar – a live presentation that has attendees and a presenter. But there may be some instances where it makes more sense to record the webinar in advance without an audience present and then make it available on demand. In this article, we will explore the benefits and disadvantages of both of these styles of webinars.
Hosting a webinar can be one of the most beneficial things that you can do for your business. But you are going to need some equipment in order to conduct one. Don’t worry, it isn’t anything complicated, and you probably have most of it already, but you should be aware of what equipment is required and how to use it to host an effective webinar.
Hosting a webinar can do amazing things for you, no matter if you are hosting to impart information or you are hoping to convince potential customers to buy your product or service. The webinar is simply a marvelous way to pass on info because it basically puts you in a room with your audience and they all are listening to every word you say.
But you can’t keep your audience’s attention the entire time by speaking – unless you are just that good and in that case, you should probably be charging more – so you have to add certain elements to your webinar to spice it up a bit. One of the best ways to do that is by including multimedia.
Promotion is an integral part of hosting a webinar because the whole goal of having one is to pass on information to an audience and the larger the audience the better. Promoting your event lets people know about it and gets the word out. But how do you promote one effectively? Here are some tips that will help you make sure people know about your webinar.
Everyone wants to make money from their webinar. But it isn’t always easy to get people to pay for information, especially if they have come to expect it for free.
Depending upon the niche that you are in, and how good your information is, you might be able to charge people to attend your presentation. Here are some tips to make them willing to fork over a few bucks for your wisdom.
When you have a large webinar, it can be challenging to manage questions because there are so many of them and you never have time to answer them all. You don’t want to spend all of your time answering questions because you have a presentation to make, but you also don’t want to leave any of your attendees in the dark because you couldn’t answer their question. Here are some strategies that you can use to make sure that you answer as many questions as possible.
Generally, in a webinar, all attendees are muted by default. You are the only one that has the ability to talk. Most platforms give you the ability to unmute individuals but this is a very unproductive way to answer questions because some people will not have their microphones set up correctly and it wastes time.
So, you have a webinar coming up. You are really excited about presenting this information to your audience but you are worried that not as many will come as you’d like. Perhaps your last webinar didn’t go as well as you would have liked. Well, you can often double or even triple your attendees with one simple thing: a webinar teaser video.
What is a Teaser Video?
Do you want to host a killer webinar that is absolutely going to knock your participant’s proverbial socks off? Then you may want to spend a little money and present a webinar that is better than any that they have ever seen.
A webinar like this may incorporate elements such as video, whiteboard animations, guest speakers, images, logos and of course, the best possible technology to present your webinar.
But what is all of this going to cost you? Can you even afford to present the most amazing webinar your audience has ever attended? Let’s find out by breaking down the cost of some of the more opulent add-ons to a commercial webinar.
f you are hosting your webinar for the very first time, you are probably dealing with a bad case of nerves right about now. A webinar is over the internet, but that doesn’t make it any less daunting than standing up in front of people and giving a presentation.
Even though you can’t see them, you know they are out there, waiting for you to dispense wisdom like a monk on a Bangladesh mountaintop. With that in mind, here are some absolutely essential things that you should do (and don’t) on your very first webinar.
