5 Ways to Start a Webinar for Maximum Engagement

  1. 1. Ways To Start A WEBINAR F o r MAXIMUM Engagement
  2. 2. Interactivity keeps people paying attention to your content during a webinar… (Remember: If your webinar is straight lecture-based, you may as well just tell your audience to go check their email or play Words with Friends while you’re talking)
  3. 3. …but what happens if your audience doesn’t know how to interact? (Not everyone knows how to use the text tool or the drawing tool or many of the other interactive features that come standard with most web conferencing platforms)
  4. 4. What in the world is the “Text tool”?! I don’t get it. Oh, look at that! I got a new email…
  5. 5. That’s why it might be helpful to have your audience practice using the interactive tools while waiting for others to log on
  6. 6. Here are five webinar “ice breaking” activities to engage people as soon as they long on (And at the same time, they’ll get practice using your tools!)
  7. 7. Using the Drawing Tool

Click on the “Marker” tool Draw a circle around every “c” on this slide Once you’ve drawn a circle or two, you may want to stop circling so that other folks have a chance, too. In the mean time, thank you for coming on time. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee or send one last email message. Once we commence, this webinar will be so interactive that you won’t have time to multi-task until we conclude. By the way, how many “c”s are on this incredibly cool slide? Feel free to count them and type the number into the “Chat” box.
