Many companies that operate online run at least one webinar per month, potentially earning them potential customers and reputations as market leaders. But great webinars (and we have just a bit of experience with them here at Social Media Today) are no accident. They’re the product of choosing the most compelling topics, the most engaging speakers, the right sponsors, and a process that brings those elements together into a cohesive content plan that gives your audience something of value.

If done right, webinars can serve as a valuable lead generation tool, a way to increase brand awareness, and a reference for your audience. Let us show you how to create a webinar that serves your business’s needs and your audience’s. We’ll be inviting contributors from three of our most successful webinars to discuss their experiences and success measures. We’ll address:

  • Choosing topics that match your expertise and the ones your audience wants to learn about 
  • What to do before: How to market your webinar effectively and prepare for success 
  • The big day: choosing the right tools to make your webinar run smoothly 
  • Avoiding the most common mistakes webinars make
