 You've put together a webinar you know people would flip over (at least that's the hope!).

Nailing the webinar invite is just as important as putting together an interesting and useful webinar program.

6 Quick Tips to Dazzle during your next Webinar

Posted by Brittany Gunter on Jan 16, 2015 11:01:00 AM


Did you know that a webinar is short for Web-based seminar?  A Webinar is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the web using a web conferencing platform. The key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements -- or the ability to give, receive, and discuss information.

Way too many businesses call their online events a webinar, when in reality it's a Webcast!  A webcast is when data is transmitted one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience. Generally, if you attend an online presentation where the host/speaker just, well... speaks at you-- you're at a webcast.   

Webinars are a great way to generate awareness around your product, company, idea, event, build relationships with prospects or existing clients and generate new leads through engagement.  Webcasts are a great way to bore your audience because you are not interacting with the very people you are trying to sell or retain!
