Dive deep into the world of webinars and learn what makes them tick. Discover the key features that ensure successful and engaging webinars, right from live chats to screen sharing and audience polls.
A webinar - a blend of the words 'web' and 'seminar' - is an interactive online event conducted via the internet, where a presenter or a group of presenters share insights on a specific topic to an online audience. They can range from educational presentations, discussions, demonstrations, or workshops.
Webinars typically have various interactive elements that make them more engaging for attendees. Some valuable webinar features include the ability to run live polls and surveys, Q&A sessions, screen sharing capabilities, and real-time chat features. These are complemented by back-end features like analytics and reporting, integration with marketing tools, and automatic email reminders.
Webinars offer several benefits like the ability to reach a global audience, time and cost efficiency, increased interactivity and engagement, and effective education and marketing platform.
Common problems faced during webinars include technical difficulties, low attendee engagement, and poor quality audio or video. Solutions include thorough testing, engaging the audience with Q&As and polls, and investing in good quality microphone and camera.
