  6. 6. 6 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Webinars  are  a  Vehicle     People  don’t  want  boxes,  they   want  what’s  inside.  Think  of   webinars  as  a  delivery  vehicle  for   your  compelling  content.  
  7. 7. 7 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG §  What  are  your  biggest  webinar  challenges?   –  Planning  and  project  management   –  Effec2ve  promo2on  for  driving  registra2ons   –  Developing  compelling  content   –  Keeping  my  audience  engaged   –  Capturing  webinar  data  in  Pardot   –  Timely  and  effec2ve  follow-­‐up   –  Connec2ng  webinars  to  sales  success   –  Other   Poll  Ques2on:  Mul2ple  Select  
  8. 8. 8 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Tip  #1:  Invest  in  Planning   Task   Timing   Develop  project  plan   6  to  8  weeks  prior   Finalize  topic,  2tle,  abstract  and  speakers   6  weeks  prior   Setup  registra2on  page   4  to  6  weeks  prior   Begin  ongoing  promo2on   4  to  6  weeks  prior   Send  email  invites   2  weeks  &  1  day  prior   Draa  slides   2  weeks  prior   Full  rehearsal  and  event  dry-­‐run   1  week  prior   Final  slides   2  to  3  days  prior   Send  reminders   24  hours  &  1  hour  prior   Pre-­‐conference  with  speakers   30  minutes  prior   Edit  recording   Within  24  hours  aaer   Send  follow-­‐up  emails  and  begin  sales  outreach   Within  24  hours  aaer   Promote  on-­‐demand  recording   Ongoing     Don’t  leave  the  success  of  your   webinar  to  chance  –  take  2me  up   front  to  plan  for  content,   promo2on,  follow-­‐up  &  reuse.  
  9. 9. 9 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Tip  #2:  Target  Your  Content   Role?   Geography?   Industry?   Problems?   As  with  any  content,  tailor  your   webinar  by  persona  &  buying   stage!  Knowing  who  you  are   targe2ng  =  priceless.   Buying   Stage?  
  10. 10. 10 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG • Deliver  Value   • Build  Credibility   • Gather  Qualifying   Data   Prospect   • Stay  Top  of  Mind   • Develop  the  Opportunity   • Demo  Your  Product   • Share  Success  Stories   Nurture   • Train  New  Users   • Cross-­‐Sell/Up-­‐Sell   • Expand  Usage   Onboard   Tip  #3:  Tailor  to  Buying  Stage     Webinars  play  a  role  throughout   the  funnel.  Top?  Thought   leadership.  Mid?  Demos  &  case   studies.  Bojom?  Onboarding.  
  11. 11. 11 Tip  #4:  Think  Beyond  Email  Invites  
  12. 12. 12 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Easier  to  Repurpose   Harder  to  Repurpose   Individual  capsules  w/  discrete  ideas   Complex  ideas  that  build  on  each  other   Mul2ple  speakers   Single  speaker   Tips  &  best  prac2ces  that  can  stand  alone   One  long  PowerPoint  presenta2on   Content  with  natural  breakpoints   A  45-­‐minute  diatribe   Tweetable  statements   No  clear  takeaways   Different  formats  like  panel  discussions   An  hour-­‐long  chunk  of  content   Tip  #5:  Design  with  Reuse  in  Mind     Think  about  reuse  from  the     get-­‐go.  Discrete  ideas  that  can   stand  alone  make  it  easier  to   repurpose  webinar  content.  
  13. 13. 13 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Tip  #6:  Go  Beyond  Boring  Bullets     Don’t  bore  webinar  viewers  with   endless  bullets.  Use  images,  video   clips,  mul2ple  speakers  to   communicate  your  message.  
  14. 14. 14 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Tip  #7:  Leverage  Engagement  Tools   Polls,  chat,  surveys  =  more   than  engagement.  Learn   more  about  prospects  &  use   data  to  score,  nurture  &   follow-­‐up.     Polls,  chat,  surveys  =  more   than  engagement.  Learn   more  about  prospects  &  use   data  to  score,  nurture  &   follow-­‐up.    
  15. 15. 15 Tip  #8:  Follow  Up  Fast   “Firms  that  tried  to  contact  poten2al   customers  within  an  hour  of  receiving  a   query  were  nearly  7x  as  likely  to  qualify  the   lead  …  as  those  that  tried  to  contact  the   customer  even  an  hour  later—and  more   than  60x  as  likely  as  companies  that  waited   24  hours  or  longer.”   -  Harvard Business Review, 3/2011
  16. 16. 16 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Tip  #9:  Repurpose  Webinar  Content     Treat  webinars  as  a  rich  source  of   content  to  mine  for  ongoing   programs.  Think  SlideShare,  blog   posts,  e-­‐books,  transcripts,  etc.  
  17. 17. 17 @anitawehnert #ADDHASHTAG Tip  #10:  Do  More  with  the  Recording     Drive  more  ROI  from  your   webinar  recordings  by  sharing  on   YouTube,  embedding  on  blogs  &   including  in  nurturing  emails.
