One aspect of video conferencing is webinar hosting. This is when a session is scheduled on a personal computer with participants over the web.
In this case, the host can be seen by the participants, but the host themselves cannot see the participants. To get a clear picture of what a webinar is, just breakdown the word and its meaning.
A webinar is a combination between the World Wide Web and a seminar, hence the word webinar.
It is basically having a seminar on the web.
If you were to host an effective webinar event, there are several things you have to take into consideration.
These things vary from an appropriate topic to follow up procedures.
The first step in order a successful webinar is to evaluate your audience.
Think of who you are trying to reach by demographics. There age, gender, culture, living conditions or work status may be an important aspect to consider.
You choose a topic that your target audience would be open to and willing to accept.
For example if your audience is women in mlm you wouldn't have a topic about prospect lists for male Regional Vice President's.
You may be better off talking about solutions to problems that face women in network marketing.
No matter how prepared and professional you may be your webinar hosting vendor needs to be reliable. It would hardly make sense to have an audience to present to and not be able to be connected through a trustworthy network.
You also need to have a vendor that is compatible with other operating systems. Every participant most likely will not have the same OS. They may even have an Apple computer running a completely different operating system than what Microsoft has.
As far as your wallet you may want to pick a hosting company that is financially convenient. Your webinar may run longer than you expected due to questions being asked and amount of content you have.
If this is the case, you might want to stay away from services that charges buy the minute. A flat rate may be better in that case. If you are disciplined with time, and are staying on for a limited time only (less than 20 minutes), a per minute charge could be best for you.
These above topics are just 3 of the issues facing people who host webinars. There are may more webinar hosting topics to consider.
Regardless of how many topics you address, the main concern overall is to make sure that your main goal is accomplished.
