  5. 5. Scripting Your Webinar  Some presenters write out a script to follow during their webinars. Others prefer to just outline main topics with bullet points  Prepare as much as you feel you need to. If you script your webinar, don't simply read off your script or you'll bore the audience. http://dna56.com/share
  6. 6. Webinar Visuals  It's good to create some type of visuals for your webinar so that the audience has something to look at. http://dna56.com/share
  7. 7. Webinar Visuals A still image is dull and won't keep their attention  The webinar could be video of you talking if you'd like it to be personal  Another option is to create a slideshow that reinforces the main points  You can also do a screen share and show the audience things on your computer.  http://dna56.com/share

  12. 12. Making It Interactive Allowing questions or comments during the presentation makes it interactive and keeps people tuned in  The downside is that it makes it hard to stick to a schedule.  http://dna56.com/share
