Today, online classes are becoming more and more popular. The efficiency of this option allows students to get their education from just about anywhere whether it’s at home or in a coffee shop. While online classes and webinars are highly useful, there are still some facilitation tips you need to know to keep the attention of your audience.
Language is powerful. If you’ve ever been moved by a speech, whether it was MLK’s “I Have a Dream” or a toast at a wedding, you’ve felt how language can inspire emotion. Some messages not only resonate in the moment, but echo through the annals of history. The words of Jesus Christ in the Bible formed the basis of a new religion and continue to guide the lives of millions.
Webinars can quickly turn dry and dull due to a lack of personality from the presenter. Even the most boring topics on the planet (yes, even weather) can be spiced up and made interesting. Think back to when you were in school, you likely remember those teachers who were interesting and animated even when the class took place 15 or 20 years ago.
There is nothing worse than a dry, cookie cutter presentation. Participants will leave the webinar bored, uninterested in your products or services, and sometimes even frustrated for wasting their time. A good sales pitch or educational presentation inspires, impresses, and engages the audience, this is key no matter the topic, industry, or niche. It is also important to realize that the Internet audience has a short attention span, they want instant gratification, and one swift mouse click is all it takes to lose a potentially profitable lead or several of them.
Webinars have become popular tools for relaying information to a targeted audience. They are convenient to the participant (who can participate from anywhere), visually stimulating (with the incorporation of videos and graphics) and targeted at the right people (only those interested in the topic). Hosting a webinar for the first time may seem intimidating, but with the guidance in this article, you will be delivering a flawless webinar in no time.
Time and time again, webinars have proven to be one of the most successful ways to convert leads into customers. Better than superior customer service, better than educational handouts and content, even better than white papers, webinars boast an impressive conversion rate of 20%.
