Webinar Help: What is a webinar?

A webinar is a seminar, but it is offered over the Internet so that you can offer the webinar to anyone who has access to the Internet, and reduce costs. But a Webinar offers so many additional benefits.

Here are just a few of the benefits of Webinars:

  • You save the cost of travel, for you and those who attend your webinar
  • You can record your webinar and place it on a CD or your Web Site for distribution
  • You instantly increase your sales territory and the ability to sell around the world

A webinar is a powerful presentation and selling tool because it allows you to enter a virtual conference room and:

  • Talk (in your voice)
  • Share pictures
  • Share Web Sites
  • Share Power Point Presentations
  • You can even share any application on your computer, such as Excel, Word, etc.

How it works

Once you have your topic set, you  set a time and a date for the Webinar. Then invite your clients to visit the web site where they can enter the Webinar, which is a virtual conference (meeting) room on the Internet. Once visitors enter the virtual conference room, you make a presentation complete with your voice, slides, software and visits to web sites of interest. Follow up with a question and answer session, and you’ve just completed your seminar. But this seminar was via the Internet, so nobody had to drive to the seminar.

Another benefit of a Webinar is that it can be easily recorded and shared over and over in the future. Yes, you heard that right. You can even record the entire event for future training or sales, or turn the recording into an short info-commercial, what I call a “Talking-Ad.

Once you have the talking ad (or recorded seminar) completed, you can then distribute it to your prospects in a variety of new ways. Honestly, it is as simple as providing a link to the recording on a web site. Or sending it attached to an e-mail. Or you can place it on a CD or DVD and hand it to someone or send it in the mail. You can give it a way for free or charge for it. It can be an educational tool that sells for you or a seminar that is sold to generate income. That’s up to you.

As you can see, whether you are in business or starting a new business, this is a good time to be in business because the computer and the Internet are the most powerful tools ever invented for business. In fact, with Webinar technology, the Internet can be your new office!
