Working in any industry, you need to be able to collaborate with coworkers and business partners. Because it is becoming harder to keep people in the same country, let alone in the same room, many businesses are finding that having a way to keep everyone communicating is crucial.
Enter the Webinar. People can collaborate from across the world as long as they have an Internet connection and a microphone (though not absolutely necessary). With a webinar, a person in one city can show a presentation to someone in another time zone without having to do any traveling.
It is not surprising that many people are using webinars to build stronger communication in their organizations, be they a Fortune 500 company or a church. They can schedule meetings based on time availability instead of personal availability.
Webinars used to be expensive, you had to spend a lot of money for the software platform. But with the release of GVO Conference, a 50 seat web conference room is now only $8.97 per month. Imagine being able to bridge the communication gap with all parts of your organization. With Webinars For Profit, you can affordably get groups together to communicate, and have the ability to record the whole thing for later playback.
Online Businesses Love Webinars!
Webinars have rapidly replaced the teleconference as the selling platform of choice! Marketers are finding that having their Powerpoint slides visible to all of the audience as they hammer home their selling points drastically increases their ability to close the sale!
Many marketers are also setting up training webinars instead of live events, simply because it is so much easier to bring people to their computer for a few hours than it is for them to fly to a resort area and spend the weekend in a hotel. Customers like it better, because they do not have to spend nearly as much money as they would if they had traveled.
When customers save money, it means that they have more to spend on your products and services! What better way to increase your sales than to make each aspect of your customers’ experience as personable as possible. Repeat business is a result of over delivering on the value and making an offer that is irresistible to the prospect. Having your training or coaching delivered by webinar makes it seem more personal than a room full of people or a DVD in the living room.
Taking The Next Step
Once you have developed a series of training materials that you have put together in a series of webinars, you are ready to create a delivery system that will allow your webinars to run automatically as often as your customers need them. If you make 10 sales this week of your new coaching program, you can have them placed into a membership site where the webinars will be scheduled for the members. The dates and times will be posted, and the software will run your recorded webinars automatically at the selected times, whenever someone attends. So you are training someone while spending time with your spouse or your children.
The software is part of a system called Evergreen Business System which was designed by marketers to make it as easy as possible to set up income streams in any market they choose to. By evergreen, we mean having green leaves year round, and your webinars can be created in a way that they are useful to your prospects year round, too. Simply record your webinars and when you find one that does especially well at selling your product, set it up in the EBS system to automatically register, remind and educate your prospects without you having to interfere. If is almost like outsourcing, except you only have to pay for it one time!
