In the webinar I talked about how to get started with email marketing (using Constant Contact as an example). Here are some things I would do differently next time!
Make sure that nothing on my desktop was open that I didn't want open!
Make sure all programs that I wanted to use (Hello, LinkedIn, Facebook) were already logged into and ready to go.
Make sure that all of the props I wanted to use (example of Text to Join) were handier - I ended up having to leave my chair to fetch something!
Perhaps consider hiring someone to field questions and be a bit more able to answer them on the fly. Though, I did respond to each question and that was probably a great way to connect with webinar attendees.
Send out a survey for feedback afterwards. I neglected to do this and I only heard from a few people that they loved it. It would have been good to really get a wider response back in some way so that I could learn more from this experience. So, if you watch the webinar, please feel free to provide feedback email@example.com
What was great about doing a webinar? I didn't have to leave my house. No parking for me, or anyone else - or commuting. What was missing, and perhaps something I could work on, is that I love it when people get to mingle and network after talks I give. There was no chance for anyone to do this. Though some people probably did meet and greet on the Facebook event page..
Will I do another webinar? For sure! And, I'm open to topic suggestions. I know Facebook very very well, so it's likely I'll do one of my beginning/intermediate talks about Facebook soon. Please join my email list if that's something you'd like to learn more about.
