How To Steps!
Published by Stephen Beck
Webinars are not as hard as they look if you know a few
webinar how to tips ... and they can absolutely skyrocket your online
or offline business. In fact, webinars convert attendees
into buyers at a rate of 10% - 30%. Got your attention? Great, then
let's see what you need to host your own profitable webinar.
The first webinar
how to step is creating a killer powerpoint presentation. You
have to walk the tight-rope of giving enough content so that your
attendees will feel that it is worth their time and attention, but you
must also create a hunger for more.
Let's face it. You can NOT teach all there is to know about your topic
in a 60-minute presentation. And your attendees can not learn all they
need to know in order to be successful from a 60-minute presentation. So, you owe it to them (and
yourself) to offer "continuing education" at the end of your webinar.
That continuing education can be in the form of a book, a service or a
home study course - whatever you are offering.
So, when creating a webinar, you need to balance the need for sharing
good information with creating a desire to know more about your topic.
And that desire to know more should translate into product sales.
The second webinar how to step is finding a webinar hosting platform.
There are a variety of webinar hosting solutions for all types of
budgets. Choosing the
right one for you depends on how you will use it. If you
plan on having a lot of people at the same time (over 1000), a pay per
attendee per minute may be the way to go.
If you can limit your webinars to 1000 attendees and plan on having a
lot of webinars per month, a monthly flat rate for webinar hosting
would probably be the better way to go. Most of the webinar hosting
companies have similar features, so it usually comes down to usage and
The third webinar
how to step is inviting people to your webinars. Once you
have your webinar ppt created and chosen a company to host your
webinar, now you need to think about who to invite to your webinar.
The easiest place to start is your in-house email list. Haven't been
collecting emails? Shame on you! But not to worry. There are companies
that can do a reverse email list for you. You give them your customer
list with physical addresses and they will return the list with email
After your own email list, visit blogs, forums and Yahoo Groups that
cater to your target market. Write a content-driven post or answer a
question, then leave the webinar invitation in your signature. Other places to find attendees
for your webinar are facebook, twitter, Google buzz, squidoo and myspace.
In fact, announce your webinar in all the social media places and even
submit an online press release.
And finally, don't forget affiliates. Your competitors and other people
you do business with would be happy to send their subscribers to your
webinar if there is an incentive for them. Promise them a cut of the
sales for people that buy using their affiliate link. Or promise a
reciprocal webinar - you will send your subscribers to their webinar if
they send their subscribers to yours!
So these are the 3 essential webinar how to steps to creating and
hosting your own webinars.
None of it is rocket science, but do these 3 things and you will see
your sales skyrocket like never before!
