Getting ready for a webinar or a live web presentation? We can help you pick the right tools for it. Webinars vary in types and targeted audience sizes. We don’t recommend you to use the same tool every time. Learn to adapt to your audience needs. There are many differences in the platforms you use and they are also chosen according to the type of the webinar or online presentations you organize. They could be annything from:
- Training sessions – perhaps you are a business coach and you are organizing a session for a small group of people. Webinar format is ideal for you to transfer your skills and knowledge to participants.
- Training courses – the next logical step after single sessions. You have your subscribers and you need a tool that is able to identify active subscribers.
- Q&A panels with other experts – maybe your company brought in an expert that will be interviewed by attendees. You need to set up a “one to many” platform that can be used by everyone.
- Coaching and mentoring – most of the time we are thinking about webinars as something used for group presentations. Why not using them in your one-on-one coaching sessions.
