Webinar Best Practices


WEbinar Best Practices

Below is a list of the tips discussed in the video. Refer above for detailed descriptions.

  • Create a high quality registration process with good questions that will guide your webinar content.
  • Let people know the length of the webinar. One hour is a good goal.
  • Rehearse, practice, solidify tech utilization.
  • Have an assistant run the chat and help with back-end engagement.
  • Open the doors and interact 10 to 15 minutes before the webinar starts.
  • Don't waste time introducing yourself. Jump in to the content right away.
  • Dual monitors can help, if they're available.
  • If demonstrate a platform, do so thoroughly. Have screenshots prepared.
  • Breakout rooms don't work since recording can't show all rooms.
  • Avoid Death by Power Point! Don't read from slides. Too much text is bad. Less is more.
  • Try to engage every 10 minutes.
  • Engage using polls and Q&A.
  • Use co-presenters to break up your talking.
  • Vary your instruction methods. Use the tools discussed in this course. (Don't just stick with polls, for example.)
  • Always have a call-to-action. (What are you leading them to?)
  • After Facebook live ends, answer all questions in comments.
  • Send out a survey after webinar ends.
