Record Your Webinar - Professional
Tips and Tricks
Published by Stephen Beck
Trying to record your webinar?
Let me show you a few tricks, but first, here are some reasons
why you would want to record your webinar in the first place:
Many people who couldn't attend your webinar live are still
interested in your products or services. So, providing a replay
is a great way to get more sales and even have your customers
pass the replay along to others virally.
- Product Creation
A webinar recording makes a great stand-alone product when you
upload it to a password protected site or burn it to a CD.
- Training Module
This one is related to "product creation" above. Record a
webinar so you can add the recording to an existing product or
perhaps extra training on a specific topic. You could even
record webinars and use them as bonuses to give away with
the purchase of one of your major products.
So, how to record a webinar?
Some webinar hosting companies have a recording feature built
in, but you always want your own recording as a back up. And
strange as it may sound, your recording may higher quality.
Step 1: Login into your webinar host as the
organizer and start your webinar
Step 2: Using a SECOND computer, login as
an attendee to your own webinar
The second computer needs to have screen capture software such
as Camtasia so that you can capture your webinar that is now
showing on the screen. Screen capture software will capture all
of the video and audio from your webinar - and allow you to turn
it into whatever file type you need.
Step 3: On your second computer that is recording
your webinar, set your screen parameters and audio settings and
Make sure you set your audio to record "inline" and use a 1/8 to
1/8 audio jack to "trick" the computer into recording only the
webinar and not your voice when presenting on the other
computer. Otherwise you would have to out the recording computer
in another room that is completely quiet!
But if you plug one end of the 1/8" cable into the mic jack and
the other end of the 1/8" cable into the headphone jack, you can
set the recording computer right next to you and even see in
real time what your attendees are seeing. This helps with lag
problems and is a great safety check when presenting live.
Step 4: When finished recording, render the file
either to burn to a CD or for uploading to the Internet.
You can also spice up your recording by adding music on the
front end and back end. Make sure to use royalty-free so you
don't get in trouble. You can also add a "call to action" on the
web page that has your webinar replay. This way, they don't
have far to go when they watch your replay and want to buy!
So, record your webinars and start watching your online or
offline business explode using webinars!
