These days, companies are finally starting to see the benefits of using webinars to grow their small business. Not only can webinars be used to generate revenue for themselves, but they can also increase awareness, minimize costs, and build trust with their audience. Below we’ve included four simple things you can do to get the most out of your webinars.
1. Build Brand Awareness & Trust
One of the best ways to build trust and show the real value of your company is to use live video in webinars. While content is great, it’s often one-sided. Webinars allow your customers to get engaged in the conversation live – giving them the opportunity to build rapoir and trust with your company.
2. Grow & Clean Your Mailing List
One of the most simple ways to grow your mailing list is to host a webinar. You can create new mailing lists from those who attended your webinars. If they attended a webinar of yours, they are more likely to engage in follow up content you send via email, making these mailing lists more responsive.
3. Increase Conversions On High Ticket Items
Using webinars to sell big ticket items has been proven to be extremely effective. During webinars, customers are given a chance to get to know you and your company. Building this relationship before asking them to spend a lot of money with your company will ultimately give you a better chance of selling them down the road.
4. Co-Host & Interview Authority Experts
A great way to become an expert in your field and draw in potential clients is to co-host and interview other authority experts in your field. You could do this at a sponsored event as noted in our 5 Simple Networking tips for Small Businesses, or turn it into a virtual webinar. You could even stream your live event, so those who are not in your area can join as well.
