When conducting webinars, keep in mind that you have to follow similar principles as when you are giving presentations or talks in person. Below are three things that you should avoid in order to consider your webinar a success.
1. Forget to have a structure – Make sure you grab your audience’s attention as you would when you’re doing this live in front of people. You can do this by sharing an outstanding fact, giving an unusual statistic, anything that can grab and hold their attention.
2. Do bad things with Powerpoint - Just because your audience can’t see you, you’d then resort to using a ton of PowerPoint slides. Remember, quality is better than quantity.
3. Forget to use your voice - This is the only thing left that you have control over when doing webinars. They can’t see you, they can’t touch you but they can hear your voice so use it well to pique their interest and hold their attention.
