Webinars can be a powerful marketing tool when utilized properly. Try to think of your webinar as a valuable opportunity to speak directly to someone in a way they will understand. If engineers are your target audience, you know that they are faced with a number of design challenges today. A webinar allows you the chance to speak directly to them and offer a new perspective or idea on how to address their challenges.
Here are some ideas to consider when developing your next webinar:
1) Engage the audience with interactive polling questions.
Polls are one of many great audience-engagement tools. With polls, you can gauge the audience’s familiarity with the topic, hear common pain points, and develop excitement.
2) Take a multi-media approach.
Incorporating video is a nice way to break up a monotonous voiceover PowerPoint presentation and bring to life what the speaker is articulating. Videos should not be more than a few minutes long. Stay clear of overproduced “commercial type” clips; recorded demos and real-life examples are good options.
3) Continue the conversation with the audience.
A number of customizable engagement and conversion tools are available on the webinar audience console. You can create a simple call-to-action button for an attendee to “request a demo” or “free trial,” or you can invite them to another webinar or live event.
