8 Steps to Make Your Webinars Interactive

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????The following tips are from Brenda Bence, who is a corporate branding and personal branding expert.

1. Sign in – by letting your participants sign in, they will get a feel of the room just like how it happens in a real live seminar.

2. Ground rules – by asking your participants to set up the ground rules (like no cellphones, ask questions at the end of every session, listen, focus, etc.), you’ve already started making the webinar interactive.

3. Notification – letting them know that they will be called upon randomly to answer questions will keep them on their toes.

4. Executive presence – have a senior level executive there to answer questions and speak up every once in a  while  to make participants listen and participate more

5. Prizes – by offering prizes, participants will feel more lively and engaged in the discussion

6. Experience – there is so much we can do with technology now. People are no longer limited to listening only during webinars. You can do so much more like: writing on whiteboards, showing videos, conducting a survey or a poll, drawing arrows, etc.

7. Webcam – when telling a story, it’s best to turn the camera on you so they get to see your expression just like when they’re watching you in person.

8. Feedback – just like in a live seminar, it’s always best to ask for feedback at the end of the session.
