What Not To Do During Webinars

webiners-betaOne of the most powerful tools for long distance communication between a guru/teacher/speaker and its audience is a webinar. The numerous possibilities for marketing, meeting from afar as well as training people have been opened and if you haven’t been joining this bandwagon yet, then it’s about time you do.

But of course, the effectiveness of these webinars will only be achieved when done right. How are webinars done right?

Ellen Finkelstein wrote an article explaining the 8 deadly sins of webinars and how to avoid them. Here’s the summarized version:

1. Reading the slides

2. Staying on the same slide for more than 2 minutes

3. Using animation improperly – too much or too little

4. Not using interactive features

5. Using PowerPoint like a word processor

6. Talking in a monotone

7. Not knowing the webinar software!

8.  Not providing follow-up
