According to the State of Webinar’s 2019 report, 79% of the people admit that a brand’s video has influenced them to buy a product.

On a budget? Webinars are the way to go!
Many businesses are looking for cost-effective ways to up their marketing game in the economy today. Webinars are an inexpensive way of connecting with your desired audience. With tools like Youtube, Google Hangouts, Instagram live, Facebook live and so many more, you won’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to book a venue.

Marketing 101: Increases brand awareness

Having a webinar will allow audiences to get a visual feel of your brand, resulting in getting your brand in the buying consideration set. You can do it through aggressive marketing or engage your audience in some knowledgeable information about your brand.

Invite a social media influencer or your business partner across the globe
On-demand webinars are convenient because everyone just needs to have an internet connection to access it. Conducting webinars can allow you to connect with your desired audience at the comfort of their own home.
Webinar engagement converts to brand engagement!
The beauty of scarcity is one of the greatest assets of the marketing community. If you are conducting a live event and do not plan on leaving any digital footprint of it, and if your audience shows up late, they miss a part of it. If they don’t show up at all, they miss all of it. The power of scarcity forms the foundation of the webinar campaign, leaving a feeling of FOMO.
With webinars, your audience gets a voice, they can provide you with real-time insights, ask questions, and chat. When the conversation starts, it’s a snowball effect for brand engagement.

You’ve fine-tuned your presentation to your liking. After a few run-throughs, you’re ready to launch.
Ready, set… hold up.
Before you invite your attendees, there’s one more step to check off your list: foolproofing.
I know what you’re thinking, “What? Why bother? What could go wrong enough to need foolproofing?”
