There is no doubt that hosting webinars can make your life easier for you by greatly reducing your expenses and systematizing your marketing or training information. Both of which have powerful implications on the profitability of your business.
But what if there is a way to make things easier and more convenient for you? There is. It’s called webinar automation replay systems.
Webinar replays make it a piece of cake to host scheduled webinars that you can replay over and over — while you’re busy working other aspects of your business. For example, if you’re a business coach, e-course instructor, or network marketing leader who frequently has new members or students, a webinar replay system saves you time teaching the same thing when someone new comes on board.
The beauty of setting up a system for webinar replays is that the live workshop or lecture you originally recorded is programmed to automatically play for future audiences or prospects. This is both time and cost-efficient, set-it-and-forget-it interaction at its finest.
But how exactly can you achieve these goals? Here are 9 playback tips you can try now.
1. Control your start time – at all times
The great thing about automating your webinars is you’re always in control! You can set them to run for whatever time you want. For example, if you decide to pre-set them to start every Monday at 9 p.m., you can! Even while you’re doing other things, your webinar replay will still work for you.
2. Control the start point for late-comers
There will inevitably be people who don’t make it to the party on time. You can set your webinar to start at a certain time after the webinar begins (say up to 30 minutes after the start time).
Or, you can also break up your webinar replay into different URLs. This way, late-comers don’t have to start the presentation over. However, they can join others who are already viewing the webinar.
3. Provide a Q & A box
One of the most important points of a presentation is interaction. You want to offer Teleseminars and Webinars that provide a Q & A box. You can choose to answer them immediately or at a later time after your event has passed.
4. Don’t reload
When you’ve put an automated webinar into place, you want to maximize your event’s success. For instance, if it’s a 40-minute presentation, you don’t want people to log in 35 minutes into it. By applying an auto-lockout feature, it’s almost like the doors were locked in the conference room.
5. Allow 3rd party vendor site to handle the details
Your Webinar or Teleseminar that has been scheduled should not run on your website. It should appear on a 3rd party domain.
6. Don’t give video controls
Because this is a live presentation, participants can’t pause the tape or try to speed ahead to the end. Once they’re in, they’re in, which allows you to fully deliver your presentation. That means you control what they hear and how they hear it.
7. Add a shopping cart button
You can set your shopping cart button with materials to pop up during specific times during the presentation. Once again, because it is “live”, there is a sense of urgency attached. No lines, no waiting.
8.Keep attendees glued to your presentation with built-in focus control
Here is another really powerful tool. It is best if your attendees watch your complete presentation. I would suggest you choose a replay service or tool that provides you with tools to keep them focused. There is nowhere on the planet that has more distractions than the internet, you must keep them in your presentation.
9. Use tools with built-in human traits
In this day and age, when we can put a man on the moon, it’s important to remember that people are used to just about anything. They can spot technology from a mile away. For that reason, it is best if the tool you choose has built-in human traits – so it does not act like a computer.
By using a tool that literally acts like a human, it will make the connection between the presenter and the attendee that much more meaningful.
