How?

Step 1. You need a good content strategy and a solid plan.

Like any other event, organizing webinars requires the production of worthy content. To succeed, keep in mind the following:

– Choose content that is relevant and interesting to your audience. Match this choice with your brand identity and brand voice.

– Be consistent. If possible turn your event into something reoccurring to increase your brand awareness.

– Incorporate a call of action at the end of your webinar and initiate your audience’s interaction. This way you can build long-term relations with your viewers. 

Step 2. Choose the right platform to stream your event

Analyze your audience and evaluate where is the best place to stream and reach the desired viewers: your website/social media/ live streaming platforms.

Step 3. Be invisible

Test everything technology-wise and try to create an experience that is as close to the in-person event as possible. High quality of content, audio and video are extremely important for the smooth experience you want your audience to have.

Some magic tricks for a strong start:

  • Define the ‘WHY’ behind the organization of your webinar. This will give you a sense of purpose and something to stand out with. 
  •  Pick a specific topic for your event and create a hook for your marketing strategy!
  • Plan and advertise at least 3-4 weeks ahead.
  • Use Blogs/Podcasts/Social media to build and engage audiences.
