While hosting a webinar may offer numerous advantages, it also has its own challenges. Regardless of how good your story is, it needs to be tailored based on your target audience. At times, you may even be in a position to present to a larger group. You’ll also need to be ready to handle potential technical snags along the way.
Sound troublesome? Not anymore! You can now present to 1000 attendees using Zoho Webinar.
From presenting to a larger group of attendees to keeping everyone engaged, here are some of the challenges faced while conducting a webinar and tips on how to tackle them:
Hosting 1000 attendees is exciting, but you might face some technical difficulties like internet connectivity issues, software compatibility, audio and video issues, and so on.
Try to plan your webinar ahead and maintain an environment suitable for hosting a webinar without background noise. It is always advisable to do a trial run with your staff to predict and rectify some of the possible difficulties you would face during the live webinar.
No matter how well you present your story, it won’t be helpful if there’s no one available to hear the story. Half of your success depends on when you schedule your webinar and how well you promote it.
Understanding your audience is the key to scheduling a successful webinar. Schedule and promote your webinar based on your target audience’s location, webinar topic, and the number of hosts. You should also promote your webinar at the right time so that it doesn’t either feel too late or too early to register for your webinar. Email campaigns play a key role in inviting an audience to attend a webinar on your product’s updates while you can bet on social media campaigns for generic webinars. Make sure you embed your webinar registration links on your landing pages while promoting, so you generate more leads organically.
Keeping your audience engaged
Many webinar hosts find it difficult to keep their attendees engrossed in their presentations. Without proper engagement, viewers can lose focus in a matter of minutes.
The way you structure your presentation matters when it comes to engaging your attendees. Try to incorporate interactive conversations in your presentations using Q&A tools. Add Polls to get to know your audience better and share your screen online to help hold your attendees’ attention. You can also make your webinars more fun by breaking the ice with an informal chat or by making a few jokes based on your organizational and personal prospects. Also, ensure that you have an active web-cam video feed displayed to your audience to enhance your real-time collaborative experience.
