You’ve probably heard of webinars. If not, they’re live online presentations that you can present to an audience. What if you want to host your own webinar but don’t have the time to setup and moderate a live lecture? No problem, you can do the same with a recorded webinar.
Here’s how you can launch an online webinar in just three steps:
Step one: Choose a date.
The first step is to choose a date. You need to make sure that you’ve taken care of all the necessary arrangements for this date (e.g., the location will be chosen, transportation will be arranged, etc.). When choosing the date, it’s important to consider the end date so you don’t end up selecting a date too close to the end of the month.
On the day of the event, you’ll need to check-in with the host a few hours before the event starts. This way, you can make sure that everything is alright and that there aren’t any last-minute changes to be made.
Step two: Choose a timezone.
The second step is to choose a timezone. You’ll need to decide whether you want the event to be held in the same timezone as you or another timezone. You may want to choose a different timezone so that when the event concludes, it’s already morning in your timezone.
Once you’ve made this decision, you can move on to the next step.
Step three: Choose a location.
This is the step where you’ll decide where the event will take place. You need to select a physical address (e.g., a hotel) so that attendees can easily find it. If you’re not sure where to start, choose a prominent location in your area (e.g., a conference center) and walk around it to get an idea of how the space looks. You can also ask any local business for help (e.g., restaurants, coffee shops, etc.) to get an idea of what the area is like.
Once you’ve determined the location, it’s time to move on to the next step which is to set the date and time for the event.
You’ll then need to decide what will be discussed during the event. You can write down some possible topics and then choose the ones that you’ll actually discuss during the event. It’s a good idea to choose a general topic (e.g., digital marketing) and then work your way down from there.
For instance, if you choose the topic of SEO (search engine optimization), you may want to discuss topics such as on-page SEO, off-page SEO, and digital marketing strategy.
Now that you have everything set, it’s time to launch your online webinar.
