Why Use Webinars For Your Business?
Have you been considering using webinars for your
business, but still feel confused?
Not to worry, many marketers feel the same way. While
you may realize that using webinars can really boost
your business, the thought of presenting a webinar can
be totally frightening.
Before deciding one way or the other, you should look at
both sides of the webinar scenario. The benefits and the
disadvantages. Lets start with the disadvantages.
The main issue for any business owner not to hold
their own webinars boils down to three main things.
Being scared of running one
Costs associated with webinar software
Not knowing how to use the software
The main objections of not knowing how to run one and
being scared of doing one are common fears. Both of
these will disappear quite quickly. Once you have access
to the software you can easily learn how to use it.
After you have held your first webinar your confidence
level will increase and you will look forward to holding
your next one.
The money issue can be a deterrent for many people too.
Some of the popular webinar platforms such as Go to

small business owners. It is possible now to use Google

Now to the benefits of why you should hold webinars.
Great way to connect with people regardless of
More cost effective than travelling to different parts
of the country or world
Webinars can be recorded and the recording can be
given to attendees

Many platforms allow you to show attendees slide
Having the ability to show slides and hold presentations
means that a webinar can become a learning tool very
easily. It is often much easier to show people visually
than try to explain concepts to them. Great vessel for
teaching as well as training
One of the biggest advantages has to be that of reducing
travel time to events and seminars.
Some webinar platforms are capable of handling 500 or
more attendees at one time so your potential to reach
your audience is huge.
Another benefit of holding webinars is that you can
literally hold a quick webinar or meeting at any time.
If something comes up and you need to connect with other
employees, you simply schedule a webinar meeting.
Hopefully you can now see why running webinars can be
advantageous for you.
