Tips for an Interesting Webinar

The key to delivering an engaging webinar experience for your target audience is planning. Sure, you can be spontaneous and think of creative tactics to keep your audience busy as the webinar unfolds, but that comes with the risk of drifting away from the point you want to make.

You can use the power of improvising and generating instant ideas. However, by adding the power of methodology and planning, you can find suggestions for a webinar designed to the finest detail on this blog.

1) Pick an Interesting Webinar Topic

Nobody chooses a course whose subject is uninteresting. Or no one reads a book whose cover is not pleasing to the eye.

Similarly, your visitors may not want to spend time on your webinars if the topic you choose is not relevant to your target audience's interests. The first matter you should determine in this regard are: Who is your target audience?

Once you have determined your target audience, you can continue to develop a specific strategy. What are they interested in? What do they want to learn? Is there a current topic or industry trend that they would like to learn more about? Instead of using something ordinary, choose a more specific topic that is directly related to your target audience.

However, make sure that the topic you choose is one that can appeal to your target audience as well as one where you can claim a significant amount of expertise. This is the best way to build your expertise and gain credibility in the field.

Once you have determined the subject, approach it methodically. When it comes to presentation, strive to go beyond a mere narrative or a simple explanation of information and figures. Create a "problem" by encouraging visitors and discover together how to solve it step by step.

Make sure that the topic under discussion adds value to your target audience in some way; They will prefer to learn from your insights rather than feed on the abundance of information extracted from Google. Do your research well. Check out the articles, inform yourself and most importantly, define your specific stance on the subject. What is your opinion as a thought leader?

2. Pay Attention to Your Slideshow

Powerpoint presentations are often either very useful or seen as a waste of time. A perfectly prepared slide can attract your audience on the go, while a simple, unimaginative slide can put them to sleep. You have the opportunity to show yourself with the camera while performing webinars. For this reason, most organizations prefer the combination of camera and slide show. Since the slideshow is the content that will attract the most attention and will be visible during the webinar, it should be prepared in detail. Some tips for an engaging Powerpoint presentation

  • Use text economically
  • Use interesting images
  • Bring videos, graphics, animations together wherever possible
  • Use colors wisely, don't opt for colors that are too flashy or glaring
  • Keep the text clear and relevant.
  • Try to keep each slide slightly different to indicate that you are moving to a different subtopic.

3. Use the Power of Video

The internet has a fascinating variety full of videos on every subject imaginable. You can surely find videos that match your presentation topic. Having a variety of media items for your webinar will help you grab the attention of your audience and make the session much more dynamic.

Videos also serve as a break after the monotony of speech or text and serve for immediate re-interaction with distracted viewers. You can integrate these videos into your slideshow or access them directly from YouTube.

If you want to go the extra mile and stay one step ahead of everyone, you can create more unusual ideas for video use during your webinars. For example, you can live stream a related event such as a product launch or schedule your webinar around a live discussion.

4. Conduct Instant Surveys

If you let your visitors participate during the webinar, you will have come a long way in terms of interaction.

In this way, many organizations allow visitors to interact with live surveys. During the webinar, you can ask a relevant question and make a survey, and view the results instantly on the screen with applications such as SurveyMonkey and Google Forms. This not only allows you to interact and engage with visitors. Many of the visitors can be potential buyers. Stating that you have taken into account their opinions and want their opinions can help you build a more intimate connection with them, while also giving them a better chance to understand their trends and interests.

However, it is important to remember not to force surveys where they are not needed. Their integration should appear logical and natural. Do surveys where they make a difference and can prove a topic.

5. Giveaways

One of the sure ways to gather audiences for your webinars is to do giveaways at the beginning or end of the webinar.

A promise of surprise always plays an effective role in marketing your webinar as something fun and exciting. Most organizations prefer not to do giveaways until the session is over to ensure that visitors stay until the end of the webinar. However, there is no strict rule on this subject. You can also do this initially to make an exciting and fun introduction.

6. Conduct a Q&A Session

You may think you are undermining your webinar's flow, but your visitors may not feel the same. Maybe they visited the webinar with a different expectation than the content you prepared. Perhaps they still have questions on some of the topics you haven't talked about. The best way to make your viewers dissatisfied with the webinar is to hold a Q&A session where you can answer unanswered questions.

With a Q&A session, you can directly answer their questions and provide specific explanations. Most organizations like to hold the Q&A section towards the end of the session so as not to interrupt the natural flow of the webinar. You can ask your audience to write down their questions during the webinar and pass them to you when the presentation is over.

In addition, the audience doesn't have to be the only one asking questions. To break the monotony and enliven the session, you can ask your audience questions every few minutes or share relevant anecdotes. This can help tone down the webinar. Webinars that look more like a talk or discussion always attract more participation.
