[18:04 - 29:05] Considerations for Using Webinars as a Marketing Tool

  • Webinars can be effective for businesses where understanding and information are important factors in the purchasing decision and work well for heavily information-focused decisions and target the most serious and engaged portion of the audience.
  • Real estate and investing are examples of industries where webinars can be particularly useful.
  • Webinars may not be suitable for businesses selling low-ticket products or products that are typically purchased on impulse.
  • Attrition can be high for webinars, with only a portion of those who sign up actually showing up for the event and making a purchase.
  • It can be worth trying out webinars for your business, even if they are not intended to be sales webinars.

 

[29:05 - 41:33] The Role of Audience, Authenticity, and Sincerity for Webinar Success

  • Many webinars are approached with a "win-lose" mentality rather than a "win-win" mentality.

·        It's important to be sincere and authentic in order to have a long-lasting and successful webinar.

·        Testing different messaging approaches can help determine the most effective way to present information.

·        The most successful webinars have a clear and concise message that resonates with the audience.

·        It's important to continually test and refine messaging in order to have a successful webinar.
