Freebinar users can now create public profiles that integrate today’s top three social networks to promote upcoming and recorded webinars in one centralized space.

Huntington Beach, California, November 15, 2010 – Freebinar, the only free webinar service provider, announced this week that it has released new features: Freebinar profiles and social notifications.  With Freebinar profiles, meeting hosts can create a personalized page to display their upcoming and recorded webinars, as well as their Facebook Like Box, LinkedIn profile and Twitter streams. Social notifications provide Freebinar users the option of automatically promoting scheduled webinars on Facebook and Twitter.  The result of this integration is a powerful webinar promotional tool. “There are hundreds of new webinars created each day. Freebinar gives small businesses and non-profit organizations marketing tools to help them stand out from the rest of the pack,” said Costin Tuculescu, CEO of Freebinar.

Highlights of the new features include:

Freebinar Profiles

  • Personalized Freebinar profile page
  • Central location to list upcoming and recorded webinars
  • Displays user’s LinkedIn profile, Facebook Like Box and Twitter stream
  • Search Engine Optimized to build traffic to profile pages

Social Notifications

  • Automatically promote live webinars with notifications on Facebook  and Twitter

In order to stay competitive, many small businesses are turning to social media to raise brand awareness. A recent study shows that the number of small businesses using social media is projected to grow by 13% in the next two years: with 82% using Facebook, 32% using LinkedIn and 30% using Twitter.1 “With these new Freebinar features, small businesses and non-profit organizations have the ability to promote webinars easily and effectively without having to be an online marketing guru,” said Tuculescu.  “Our free webinar service now offers powerful marketing tools that even many paid providers such as GoToWebinar® and WebEx® do not have.”
