Save Time And Money With Teleseminar Services

Posted by

Teleseminar Services are an electronic alternative to attending a physical seminar. This approach to education, career development and information dissemination has numerous advantages. Some of these are listed below.

Advantages for Attendees:

– Transportation costs are eliminated. This is especially important when current gasoline prices are taken into consideration.

– Attendees do not need to pay as large a fee to attend. This is because they are only reserving a slot in a digital communications channel. Ordinarily, the attendee would be paying for his share of the conference room, catering and potentially a hotel room.

– Attendees can receive information and interact while working on other tasks. This is, to many people, more relaxing. It helps to save valuable work time, which could improve profits.

Advantages for Seminar Hosts:

– The cost of hosting a seminar is drastically reduced. It is not necessary to book a large venue such as a hotel conference room, catering is not needed and transportation costs for seminar staff are eliminated.

– Feedback can be more easily collected and reviewed at a later date. This is in contrast to attendees raising their hand to speak. Afterwards, this information would have to be manually recorded and reviewed. This is not only less efficient, it also introduces a great deal of potential for transcription and interpretation error.

Hardware and Software Required for Teleseminar Use

– A computer, tablet or high-end smart phone is typically required.

– Most teleseminar services are hosted on a service such as Skype, GoToMeeting or Google Plus. In the case of Google Plus and some specialized teleseminar software, support for the Adobe Flash format is vital. This is a feature only available on newer smart phones, such as those using ARM A8 and A9 Cortex processors. Most desktop and laptop computers are capable of running Flash content efficiently with just a simple software installation.

– An Internet connection such as Cable, DSL, Fiber or a T-Carrier line. Dial-up is not recommended. The best connection for teleseminar use provides at least 8 megabits of downlink bandwidth and at least 2 megabits of upstream bandwidth. Ideally, clients will be able to “ping” to the server and back with a latency under 100 milliseconds.

Getting the Best Teleseminar Performance

An inadequately optimized computer or network connection can result in poor performance during a teleseminar. The following tips will help you to achieve higher frame rates, less compression artifacts and higher-quality audio sampling.

– End all unnecessary processes. These can put a detrimental burden on the CPU and system memory.

– Check network traffic in your operating system’s “Resource Monitor”. The Network tab will allow you to view uplink and downlink traffic on a per-process basis. Custom software also exists to throttle back other applications’ utilization of the Internet connection. By doing this, you will be able to maximize bandwidth available to the teleseminar software. Note that in some browsers, flash-based teleseminar interfaces will not show their CPU, memory and network utilization in the browser’s process itself. Instead, look for a daughter process with a name like “Plugin-Container”. In the case of Java-based teleseminar software, look for a process with a name like “JRE”, which stands for “Java Runtime Environment”.

– Configure your teleseminar software to match your available Internet connection speed. You can approximate this by using an online speed test.

Instant Teleseminar – A Teleseminar Service That’s Come a Long Way

Posted by

I was on a call recently where the presenter was using Instant Teleseminar.  I was pleasantly surprised as to how far it has come over the years.  I always thought it was on the leading edge of teleseminar services since it came out with NConnects, but it has actually morphed into a semi teleseminar, semi webinar kind of functionality that gives the presenter more freedom in how they deliver the material.

What it has:

It has your standard teleconference features.  Everyone dials into a bridge line and can listen to the presenter and can also talk when in conference mode.  The presenter can also mute everyone and go into presentation mode as well. What has been added since the last time I have used the service (I admit it has been a few years), is the ability to show slides to everyone while they are listening to the presenter.  This is close to a webinar, however there are no features like polling,  being able to see the screen of the presenter, or marking up slides.  It does have a chat feature so participants can comment via chat, however the webinar i was on, the presenter asked for chat questions via Facebook.

The reason why it isn’t truly a webinar service is because it doesn’t have the big feature which is to be ability to share the presenter’s screen, or allow the participants to interact with the screen so they can click on active buttons to go to an order form right from the webinar presentation.

So what situations would it make sense to use Instant teleseminar over another solution?

When to use Instant Teleseminar:

If you are starting out, and wanting to make simple information products to sell or use as bonuses, then this is an ideal solution because you can record the session with the audio and the slideshow to create a video.  This works especially if you don’t need to go outside of the slides to a web browser or another program.  It works great when your knowledge can be shared via slides exclusively.  There is even a take action button at the end of the presentation that can guide participants to go to your sales page at the end of the webinar.  A lot of webinar programs don’t even have that functionality, although they can do it via chat to some extent.

If you have limited budget and are hosting a large number of people.  Instant teleseminar allows a large number of people to join the bridge line at a cost that is considerably lower than what most webinar service providers would charge.  For instance, the max price plan for Instantteleseminar is 197/month and that allows for 3000 web participants (listening through the website), and 500 phone participants (a total of 3500 participants).  A webinar service like Gotowebinar has their maximum plan at $499/mo for 1000 participants.  That is quite a difference in price if someone doesn’t require the features needed in a webinar service.

All in all, the ability to show slides during the presentation allows for much more flexibility for the presenter compared to a standard teleseminar service like freeteleseminar.com.

Why Do People Like Teleseminars?

Posted by

Teleseminars can be a great marketing tool for a business to get new clients as well as a great way to educate the clients you currently have.  Teleseminars are very cost effective and can be used to create information products as well.  They have many purposes within a marketing strategy, and are appreciated by clients and customers as well.  Read on for more about why your clients and customers may like teleseminars.

It’s easy to determine why information marketers and learning content producers like teleseminars. After all, they are a great selling tool. They help establish you as an expert in your field. They can help you to build traffic. And you can sell the packaged teleseminar as a mid-priced product afterwards. You can even use them as the base for a high-priced coaching product. It’s easy to see why the creators and marketers like teleseminars.

But why does the audience like teleseminars just as much?

Why do need to know? Well, if you know why your audience likes them then you can cater to that reason. By identifying and then focusing on your audience’s likes you can create products that people love to become fans of.

In this article I’m going to give you seven possible reasons your audience might like teleseminars. In order to understand their reasons, you need to ask them. These example reasons will help you to formulate a survey to identify your own audience’s reasons.

1. Teleseminars are personal.

Video gives you a chance to see the person who is doing the teaching. It is the most personal. But audio (such as a teleseminar) is a close second. You can hear the individual’s passion. You can hear when they are angry or excited or feel deeply about a subject. And that insight into their emotions allows the audience to connect with them on a personal basis.

2. Teleseminars are an easy source of education.

Teleseminars are easy to use. Download them; put them on your desired media player and you’re on your way. And they provide the information in an easy to use format as well. All you are doing is listening to a conversation. You don’t have to read. You don’t have to concentrate.

3. Teleseminars are inexpensive.

While this won’t help you sell product, one of the reasons that people like teleseminars is that many teleseminars are free. Typically these are selling teleseminars however, they provide enough information to justify the time spent.

4. When done well, they are effective as an education media.

There is an old saying in training circles that a person retains 10% of what they see, 40% of what they hear, 70% of what they hear and see and 90% of what they do. While teleseminars don’t have the highest retention rate they do have a high retention rate.

5. Teleseminars are flexible. They can be listened to while doing other things.

One of the problems with books and DVDs is that they need to have dedicated time. An audio product however, can be listened to while doing other things. They do not require you to lug along a screen or a book.

6. Teleseminars are a reasonable length of time.

We’re all busy. Time is at a premium in today’s breakneck world. A one to one and a half hour teleseminar is long enough to teach details but short enough to not intrude into the audience’s day.

7. Teleseminars educate quickly.

Teleseminars tend to get into the meat of the education quickly. A well written teleseminar will provide a lot of information in a very short period of time.

Teleseminar Training Tip – Profit from Low Attendance

Posted by

There is a lot of information out there about using teleseminars to generate a profit from.  That is a good thing to do, however if you do not have a huge attendance to your teleseminars, or you don’t even have anyone attending your teleseminars, then how do you generate revenue from an unattended teleseminar.  This article discusses how you can still do some things that will allow you to generate more income in ways you may not directly see or know.  Read on for more.

Teleseminars can be a crucial marketing tool for service professionals. One advantage: If nobody shows up, all is not lost…if you have the right set-up. Teleseminars are part of your online marketing presence, which means you get to be in several places at once and if everything goes wrong, you still haven’t lost everything.

When you promote yourself at a live event, you absolutely positively need an audience. You’re publicly on display. When your audience doesn’t appear, it’s pretty obvious.

And you just get one shot at your audience. One year I was invited to speak at an event in Tucson, Arizona, while l was living in New Mexico. On the day of my talk, an internationally known speaker was scheduled at the same time I was due to speak. Members of the group that invited me were divided. Many of them wanted to hear the other speaker and who could blame them? I did too.

To make matters worse, Tucson experienced a rare day of rain on my scheduled speech day. In Seattle, my audience might say, “Rain? Big deal.” In Arizona, rain can be disastrous, because roads wash out and create hazardous driving conditions. Anyway, a lot of people just stay home and never learn to drive in the rain. Frankly, that’s what I wanted to do, too.

My day was almost completely lost. I did make friends among the few who showed up. The host took me out to dinner at a nice place. But once the day was over in many ways…and I couldn’t be rescheduled for a long, long time.

Flash forward to teleseminars.

Rain? Snow? Who cares? If you want to be there, you don’t have to leave your home office.

Best of all, if nobody shows up, it’s not a big deal. You can still come away with a profitable experience. Here’s how.

(1) You control your audience’s perceptions.

These days most hosts do not open the lines. It’s dangerous: even if lots of people are listening, often they won’t want to talk. And if they do talk, you never know what they will. Therefore, nobody will know if you’ve got one person or a hundred.

(2) Your audience gets to be in two (or three or four) places at once.

So your closest competitor offers a big talk the same night you want to make your big pitch? No problem. Offer the call as a replay to your list. These days, most people listen via replay.

While some experts claim you get most sales from live events, my experience is different. I get most sales after the event and from the replay.

(3) You get to leverage your creativity. Write up what you said as an ebook. Often the energy of the call pulls out ideas you didn’t know you had.

Teleseminars increasingly are becoming an essential component of your professional, profitable online presence. After all, these days online marketing is more about creating a fabulous online presence than about just building a website.

Teleseminar Services – Automated Teleseminars For More Money

Posted by

Teleseminars are a great way to create more revenue for your business.  When they really fit with a targeted niche, they can truly create additional revenue for your business.  There is one thing however that can cause a business owner to be hesitant about putting on a teleseminar, and that is the ability to create the support system required to make a teleseminar work without a lot of extra effort.  This article discusses how to use some services out there that will automate some of the processes for you so it is easier to put on additional teleseminars and make more income.

Inside this article you’re going to learn about 3 simple ways to automate your teleseminars to make you more money, give you more free time, and build you a bigger list for your business.

The problem with most teleseminar services is that you can’t do a replay or choose when you want your call to be available to your listeners. If you want such a service, you’re going to pay through the nose to have the ability to automate your teleseminars.

Here’s 3 ways to use automated teleseminars in your business.

A Marketing Tool Inside Your Autoresponder

As new people come into your newsletter email autoresponder on the first Wednesday you can drive them directly to an automated teleseminar which you recorded one time and now it can help sell the course to your listeners.

The old way is that you would have to SHOW UP and do the call again… starting all over. You can setup this call for each Wednesday and another teleseminar to play live at 8pm EST every Thursday night to further drive more sales.

All on autopilot.

Delivering Your Content

Imagine having a teleseminar series to deliver your content for your info product or course. The people feel as if it’s actually live and can attend the calls as they move along with the course.

As a new buyer comes in you can setup Module 1 to deliver on the first Tuesday when they become a customer, Module 2 the next week, Module 3 the following, and so on.

Automate a Teleseminar Series

If you’ve ever done a teleseminar series with 8, 10, 15, or 20 speakers you know the pain of scheduling the speakers to appear live on the call, the problems that go along with live calls, and the many more challenges that appear when doing a huge series like that.

Ideally, with a teleseminar series you should “pre-record” the interview or call and have it automatically replay live at the appropriate time that you schedule in your series. So you can have it replay at 8pm EST and people can attend without you or your speaker having to be there.

You can learn more about automating your teleseminars right here.

AutoTeleseminar is a service that allows you to automatically replay your recorded mp3’s and play them whenever you like and gives you up to 1,000 attendee’s. Sign up for a free account at http://www.AutoTeleseminar.com
