What is a webinar, webcast or web meeting?
Simply put, a webinar is a seminar that is offered via the internet. Individuals from around the world, log into a special online meeting room at a pre-set time and hear a live, real time presentation by an expert on a particular subject. Webinars are also interactive. Participants may chat and ask questions of the presenter.
Webcasts are similar. The big difference is that webcasts are a one-way broadcast to the audience. These are typically used for larger audiences and without the interactive elements found in webinars.
Web Meetings are generally business meetings, with small groups of participants. Companies use these to collaborate with their employees & clients.
How We Can Help
Dot2Dot offers a variety of webinar services. Below, you will find a list of what we can do for you. Most of our clients elect to create their own PowerPoint presentation and then rely on us to handle the production and marketing of their webinars. We like to say that all they have to do is show up, presentation in hand. We take care of the rest. If you would like to see a listing of our upcoming webinars, along with those select advertisers, we encourage you to visit our industry website: TravelWebinars.com
We recommend that each client have their own webinar meeting room, but if you are only holding occasional events, it might be more sensible to use our meeting room. We'll educate you on your options so that you can make an informed decision.
We'll collaborate with you on topic selection, course descriptions, registration information and post-event information. We'll also provide guidance on optimum days and times to host your webinars.
Webinar Event Facilitation
We'll provide a moderator for each presentation, to assist your presenter and to handle all technical concerns.
This is one of the most important steps that will contribute to the success of your event. We know what it takes to get noticed and will make recommendations for your webinar event marketing and messaging. If you have an existing e-marketing program, we'll provide the information that you need to build your email invitation and to post the information on your website. And, if you don't have those resources, our in house team can build your email and send it out to your list.
Webinar Presentation Production
As with many marketing programs, content is king! If you have your own presentation, we'll happily evaluate it and make suggestions on how you might enhance it for delivery to your web-based audience. Or, if you are starting from scratch, our experts will work with you to create a PowerPoint presentation that is compelling and impressive for your audience.
Webinar Administration, Reports & Training
Once your event is over, the real work begins. Cultivating your leads and closing sales will be your post-event focus. We'll provide you with detailed reports that will help you follow-up with your clients. If you envision a program that you'll eventually manage in-house, we'll train your staff and coach on them on the use of the webinar platform of your choice, so that they are competent and confident enough to use independently.
