Introduction & Step One

About this course

Scheduling of your webinar is the easy part. The key is considering the important steps in the process that can make or break a successful webinar:

  • When to schedule
    • Between 10am and 1pm is usually optimal. Consider time zones, too
    • Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays are the best days for attendance
  • Audio Considerations
    • Provide your attendees with multiple join options: Computer Audio and a dial-in number
    • Add additional call-in countries based on your target list of attendees
    • To provide attendees with a toll-free number, LogMeIn's OpenVoice Integrated Audio can be added to your account 
  • Branding 
    • Communicate your brand
    • Create impact with your registration and waiting room pages
    • Add guest speaker photos and bios
  • Registration and Survey Questions
    • Super important, but don't go overboard -- three to four questions, max
    • Too many questions and registrants are more inclined to exit
  • Interaction
    • Try using the poll feature to engage your attendees
    • Leverage the polls and informal Q&A via hand raising to break up content and gain additional information
    • Have fun
