Here are the finalists for this season’s Winning Webinar Strategies promotion:

Liz Parker, 121 Temps Winning Webinar Strategy

Check

Top webinar tips from Liz:

  • Less on the screen, just have a heading – too many points on the screen and people read rather than listen.
  • Ask a question for each screen and get feedback in the chat box
  • Start the session with some housekeeping and expectations.
  • Housekeeping, turn off all distractions (including any additional tabs or social media sites, phones and even put the dogs away.
  • Expectations – come as a student with an open mind and ask lots of questions
  • Don’t read your presentation verbatim, just make key points on a page to remind you what you want to cover.  Use lots of case studies or examples to emphasize your key points.
  • Don’t try and cover too much in one session especially if you are recording it as people won’t sit through 1 hour to try and get some nuggets of gold.”

Nic Tsangarakis, Kwela Leadership and Talent Management Winning Webinar Strategy

Top webinar tips from Nic:

  • “There is no substitute for preparation.”  Kwela distributes a “webinar best practices” guide to each of its presenters and encourages practicing in advance with presenters and an acting attendee.
  • Avoid hard selling.  Kwela focuses on providing value to the audience to help build relationships and trust.
  • Keep the content simple, without too much content on each slide.
  • Don’t leave audience engagement and Q&A to the end of the presentation.  Take moments out within the presentation to solicit and address questions from the audience.
  • Understand that your audience can get distracted, so lead with what’s in it for them, as well as with assurances that the presentation will be brief, rich, and sensitive to their time.

Jennifer McGillis, PROergonomics Winning Webinar Strategy

Top webinar tips from Jennifer:

  • Keep presentations informational and not too “salesy.”
  • Provide enough information to catch the audience’s attention and get them reflecting on the topic, but leave them wanting more, which will help drive follow-up engagement.
  • Keep events to an hour or less to be respectful of the time demands of your audience.
  • Ask questions of your audience, which can be managed through chat, to further engage them.
