Types of Webinars

When talking about webinars, most people immediately think about sales pitches, however, there are other ways to leverage online events:

 

  • Internal training
  • Onboard employees
  • Customer training
  • Sales demos
  • Online learning
  • Live streaming

In addition to different types of events, you can also choose different formats, including a presentation, panel, tutorial, interview, and more.

Webinar Technology REQUIREMENTS

Regardless of the webinar format you are planning, it’s likely that the technical requirements for your webinar will be the same. It’s important to establish these requirements ahead of time so you can select the technology stack that will fulfill the needs for your entire event portfolio. Here are some things you should consider:

 

  • Do I want people to register, and track who registered for the event?
  • How important is it to have a well designed landing page to attract people to register?
  • Is this a private event for company employees or do I want to make my online event public?
  • Do I need to feature speakers for the online events?
  • What webinar platform will I use to run the event?
  • Do I need to send email reminders and follow up emails to those who registered?
  • Do I need the ability to invite contacts to register by email?
  • Will I provide the webinar content on-demand?
  • Do I want to share the slides or other documents with attendees?
  • Will I ask questions through a poll during the webinar?

 

There are many more questions you may need to ask, however, the answers to these questions will lead to how you leverage and execute your event using event technology.
