In my last blog post, we discussed the necessary steps to properly plan out your webinar. Here are 5 more tips to help you create a successful webinar experience.
1. Sound Natural
You want to keep your viewer’s attention; get rid of the monotone voice! Try standing up, using inflection by practicing and practicing again. Highlight or bold words in your script (tip #1) to remind yourself to use inflection at key stages during the recording process. Try smiling; I know this sounds odd but it really works.
2. Start with the Right Apps
You must have quality applications in your toolbox to record, edit and product your webinar. I recommend using Camtasia for video recording and editing and Audacity for audio recording and editing. To share versions of your Webinar with clients and others take a look at screen sharing software such as Dropbox, Amazon S3 or Screencast.
3. Pause Early & Often During Recording
Pause, early and often when recording both the audio and video portion of your webinar. This will give you time to re-focus if you lose your concentration. Remember inflection and correct errors as you go. The pause key in your recording software will become your best friend!
4. Use Custom Settings
Use the custom setting features in your application. This will allow you to create parameters for your webinar that you can use over and over again for future projects.
5. Repurpose Your Webinar
Once you’ve created an awesome webinar, let it to work for you! You can create CD’s, DVD’s and MP3 podcasts. You can post these on your website as freeware or market them to visitors to your site.
I love getting feedback. Tell me about your webinar experiences! Here on my blog, you’ll get commentluv. That’s a plug in that allows you to leave a link back to your own site when you leave a comment.
Until next time,
