Ready to host your own webinar? A webinar can be a great business tool to connect with your market, share ideas, show off your expertise, build your brand, grow your leads and make more sales.

Deciding to host a webinar is a smart move. The easy part is deciding to do the webinar, then comes the challenge of figuring out what to do next and how to get set up.

Before we get into how to set up a webinar, let’s touch on just what is a webinar:

A webinar is a live, interactive seminar or conference that is hosted online. A webinar can be hosting in a number of ways and there are various programs available both paid and free.

Now, let’s discuss some of the tools that you might need to host your own webinar:

– Telephone
– Three Way Calling
– Conference Call Line
– Audio Recording Software
– Audio Editing Software (if needed)
– Camtasia
– Webinar Software

How do you choose what setup is best for you?

When planning your webinar you’ll want to consider the following points:

– What tools are you comfortable with using right now – microphone? telephone? audio recording software?
– What webinar programs are you familiar with and like?
– What budget can you work with for hosting webinars?
– How often would you like to host your webinars?

Once you find the answers to these questions you’ll want to use them to research webinar programs for your online event.

Here’s how I do it when hosting a webinar:

1. I have what I want to say laid out in point form notes in front of me on the desk.
2. I use my laptop to log in to the webinar software so I can see what my students are seeing just in case there are any technical glitches.
3. I have my conference call in number ready as well as my audio acrobat call in number.
4. My Camtasia is set to record the screen.
5. My powerpoint (or open office) presentation is open and ready to go.

During Webinar:

1. Dial into conference line.
2. Dial into audio acrobat and start recording.
3. When I am ready to get started with the Camtastia recording I leave a silence and then say “OK, Let’s Get Started” so I can see where to match up the audio with the video when doing the editing.
4. Download the audio file and combine it with the video in the Camtasia editing software.
5. Notify list that download is ready to go.

The process above would need to be modified depending on which software you are using to host your webinar. Some programs host your event completely online which would eliminate the need for a telephone line, audio acrobat and camtasia recordings.

How to Do a Webinar – Tips For Your First Webinar

Posted by

Webinars are a great way to educate your target market, train your customers, generate revenue, presell products and services as well as create information products.  So if you decide to go down this road, it is important to know how to do a webinar so that you can get as much success from it as you can.  This article discusses the basics on how to do your first webinar, the products and services you would need in order to produce a successful webinar.  Read on for more!

Webinars are excellent tools for marketing and for building your credibility as an expert in your field. They even make great tools if all you are doing is training! But they can be frightening to the new information marketer or learning creator.

But they don’t need to be. There is no reason for being afraid of creating webinars.

Webinars come in many flavors, but they are all easy to create and relatively quick to design and develop. And as you become more capable and comfortable they only become easier!

Here are seven tips on how to do your first webinar:

1. Always know your target audience. Everything — and I do mean everything — will flow from this knowledge. Your target audience will define the problem, and much of the solution. It will define how you market your webinar. It will define what type of webinar you are going to produce. It will define how long your webinar can be or needs to be. You cannot overestimate the value of knowing your target audience.

2. Always know why you are doing your webinar. I know it sounds silly, but you’d be surprised how many people can’t get this straight. There are three major types of webinars. There is the sales webinar. There is the learning content or training webinar. And there is the hybrid. Each of these types is different and imposes its own style and limitations. Mix them up and your webinar will fail to achieve its goals.

3. Spend enough time on planning, designing and preparing your webinar. This cannot be emphasized enough. Many people want to rush through and just sit down to write a seminar. Some gurus try to minimize this in a foolish bid to make webinars seem easy. But the truth is for every hour you spend in planning, designing and preparing your webinar you’ll increase both response and the chances of success.

4. Practice, practice, practice. Then practice some more. This applies on many levels. Practice in general will help you to become comfortable speaking to an audience that isn’t able to give you feedback. Practicing your webinar will help you to identify any weaknesses. It will also help you to ensure your timing is reasonable and that you have the material down pat.

5. One of the biggest mistakes — other than mixing up learning and sales webinars — is to overdo your slides. Slides (such as those produced by Microsoft’s PowerPoint) are meant to be speaking hints and to anchor your audience’s understanding. They are not meant to be notes. Turning them into notes is a quick way to make your audience go to sleep. Remember that you are the star of the webinar — not your slides.

6. Webinars aren’t usually done with webcams turned on. But your audience can see you none-the-less. They see you through your voice, and through your passion. So let your passion come through. In fact, step it up fifty percent. Always stand when you are talking. Smile and walk around. Use your body to communicate — your voice will follow along.

7. If you’re going to walk around though you need to have the right microphone for the job. In fact, you always need the right microphone. There are two types of microphones you can use. The first is the headphone or headset. The second is the unidirectional clip microphone. If you are going to walk around consider a wireless version. Either will work. But a desktop or omnidirectional microphone won’t.
