After attending seven online webinars in three days, I’m wondering if I got the return on my time. I was expecting these would be the best webinars based on the sales page and speakers. The advantage of viewing so many presentations in a short time is I could see patterns. I decided to convert these problems into webinar tips for presenters and attendees. Many of these tips are common sense and yet they were overlooked.
Webinar Tips for Presenters
The webinar tips above were based on my experience. But, if you really want to excel in webinars, you might want to check out Webinar Wranglers Newsletter by Daniel Waas. He and his team have analyzed thousands of webinars as opposed to my seven. You can get a nice overview of some of these from his 55 Actionable Webinar Tips list.
Webinar Tips for Attendees
A good deal of a webinar’s success depends on the attendees. We play a big part and can make or break a presentation.
After watching these webinars, I’m glad I don’t have to do these presentations. I did my share and made my mistakes. I found out the hard way that some web conferencing providers don’t like dual monitors and that I speak too fast. The best webinars I attended were ones where presenters and attendees had mutual respect for each other and their time.
