Free webinar
Pin me guys.
Don't purchase it if you don't wanna buy, list of free webinar tools give them a try. 

Want Some Help To Host A Free Webinar?

So finally, you are here hosting your first webinar. Yeah, I know that feeling. It is kind of euphoria.

Before hosting a webinar you have to go through a lot of work. Choosing the right platform for your webinar is one of them. Before investing your money in any webinar hosting software, it is better to research about it so that you can save your money from being wasted.
Or,
You can start with hosting a free webinar.

Yes, you heard it right. There are a lot of webinar services which allow you to host a free webinar. You just need to go and find them or you can just sit back and read this post because in this post we have enlisted best webinar services which will offer you the benefits of hosting a free webinar.

Note:- Hosting a free webinar is great but some services in this list only offers a free trial for few days in which you can use their services for limited time period and then you have to upgrade your plan. But few services, in this list, are completely free.

With that note let's move to the list.

Free Webinar Services List.

There are a few services which are completely free and cost you nothing. So let's just start with fully free webinar services and later we will discuss other platforms which provide free trial to their customers.

YouTube live

YouTube live is the best example of free webinar services. You don't have to pay a single penny to go live on YouTube. Although it have its own limitations but still it is a good platform for you if you are new or want to start with hosting a free webinar.

Hosting a live session in YouTube live is much easier than other webinar tools. You can host a free webinar on YouTube with this amazing guide.

If we talk about features of YouTube live then the biggest feature and benefit of YouTube live is that it is free of cost. You need not to spend money on expensive webinar tools to go live with your audience.

The second notable feature is its huge audience potential. YouTube is a hub for billions of users and audience. If you are hosting a webinar publicly then, it will attract more and more audiences which might have interest in your niche.

You can also enlist and private stream too with YouTube. If you want to invite only specific audience to your webinar then you can use private streaming. Plus you can add another presenter on YouTube live. There are no limits of participants. You can invite as many people as you want.

You don't have to use screen recording because once you will stream a live video on YouTube then that video will automatically get saved there.

Cons of YouTube live:-

When you are using a free webinar service then you have to deal with some limitations too.
  • Although YouTube live have screen sharing feature but it doesn't have the feature of sync presentation. If you want to run a presentation during a webinar then you can only do it by screen sharing. It means when you will run a presentation on YouTube live then your audience will only able to hear you but they won't see you.
  • You have to compromise with quality of your stream. Quality of broadcast is very important if you are demonstrating some technical aspects or sharing data graphs or pictures.
  • Now imagine you are hosting a smooth webinar on YouTube live and bang, an advertisement came and distract the whole session. Trust me neither you nor your audience will like it. But you have to deal with it because as me say free services always come with limitations.

Facebook live

Similar to YouTube live, Facebook live also offers free streaming service for their users. Frankly, there is not much difference between these two services but still Facebook live have its own plus points which makes it somehow different live streaming channel.

For example, on Facebook, we already have list of followers and friends, so you don't have to start from zero but if you start a YouTube channel then you have zero subscribers or followers. So you have to start from zero. Also Facebook friends will not only join your stream but will also share your session with others.

Facebook has an awesome feature of live map. This feature helps you to see how many live streams are going on Facebook around the world. You can also see how many people are watching it. Reaction feature is an amazing part of Facebook live. So you can react to the stream instead of just giving it a like.

Cons of Facebook live:-
  • Once again since you are using a free webinar service then you have to face quality issues. The worst part is that you can host a webinar only up to a quality of 720p. Its video quality is not even equal to YouTube streams.
  • If you are using Facebook live as a free webinar tool then occasional glitches and video slowdown is a common thing. Sometimes stream stops automatically.
  • Facebook live streams are accessible to all audiences of Facebook which is in billions. That's why Facebook has tighten its censorship policies. So in case of any violation of their policy standards, your stream can be stop in middle.

Freeconferencecall

If you are really nervous before buying any paid webinar service and want to try your hand in a free webinar service then Freeconferencecall is the best option for you.
Why?

Because freeconferencecall allows you to stream or host webinar with 1,000 participants. But the biggest and the rarest feature is that it is free.
Yes, whether you host a webinar with 10 people or with 1,000 people you need not to pay a single dollar.

You heard it right. I am not talking about any trial or credit card info. It is completely free of cost. Freeconferencecall offers 1GB storage data too.
It also comes with all basic webinar features which you need for hosting a webinar.

Now since it is free then there will definitely be some limitations of using their service.
Let's take a look...

Cons of freeconferencecall:-
  • The biggest drawback of their service is that their network sometimes goes down, and you have to start the call again. The low and slow network is the biggest drawback of their service.
  • Their service is not browser based or cloud based which means you have to download the software in you device before using it.
  • 1GB storage data is not often enough. It will be much better if they increase their storage limit.
Now we already have talked about some of the best webinar services which are completely free of cost and their use do not cost you a single penny. The thing is that these free webinar services have a lot of limitations which make them not so ideal tools for Webinar hosting. Although they are great if you are trying your hand in webinar hosting or hosting a less professional webinar but if your are thinking to use webinars as your primary marketing channel then you have to loose your a pocket a little bit. So the tools which are mentioned further in this post are paid tools or most of their services come with the paid version.

I have enlisted only those services which offers free trials for their users.

Skype

Skype is not a typical webinar tool. It is generally categorized as corporate meeting tool not as a webinar software. People consider it more suitable for business meeting rather than using it for webinars.

But still it is a good tool if you are hosting a small group Webinar. Most of the features and services are free in Skype.
Its free features include...
  1. Skype to Skype calls.
  2. One to one video call.
  3. Sending texts.
  4. Voice messages.
  5. Screen sharing.
  6. Contact sending.
All these services are completely free for its users but if you want some extra service benefits then you have to pay for it.
In simple words, Skype is a good video conference tool for very small groups. If I say it more specifically then it is a good tool for one to one video calling. But still if you have a small group to host then can give it a try.

Cons of Skype:-
  • Skype is very bad in sound filtration. It easily picks up noises of surrounding. This can distract the session.
  • Skype crashes more often. Sometimes it ends the video itself which is not good if you are hosting a webinar.
  • Skype does not have the feature of call recording.

Zoom

Zoom is also not a fully free webinar service but still it provide a free package with limited access of their services. The biggest plus point of zoom is that it does not require to download any software to use it. It is a cloud based service. Take a look on free services offered by zoom.
  1. With the free version of zoom you can host 100 participants at one time if you want to host more than that then you have to upgrade you plan.
  2. If you are doing one to one meeting with zoom free version then there is no time limit in that but if you want to host a group discussion then you can host it only up to 40 minutes.
  3. Free version also provide group collaboration feature.
Cons of zoom:-
  • Zoom has some serious security issues. "Zoom Bombing" is most common incident in which hackers break into the live conference and spread threats and abuse the participants. Zoom must have to fix this bug first of all.
  • Calls interception is another area in which zoom need to take serious steps. This is the most common complaint reported by its users.
Some tools in this list were either free of or very less expensive. But these tools also have some glitches and technical drawbacks. These tools are good if you are hosting a non-professional conference or hosting a very small level webinar but these tools are not good enough in hosting of large level webinars.

For that purpose you must have to choose those software or services which are specifically designed for this purpose (webinar hosting).

Down here I have enlisted top Software/services which are known for their speciality in webinars hosting.

* Note:- I have enlisted only those tools which offers free trails for their customers. Names mentioned down there offers 30 days or less free trial to their customers.

Demio is one of those paid software which provide premium services to their customers. Demio is a cloud based software which means you need not to download it. Just one click and you are ready to use it.

Another great tool which makes its place into our list. Just like Demio, this is also a great software which provides premium services to their customers. There is a very little difference among the both. Demio is suitable for all group sizes, but WebinarNinja is considered better for small groups.

Features of WebinarNinja:-
  • Just like Demio, WebinarNinja provides 14 days trial period for their customers. Within these 14 days you are allowed to use their services absolutely free.

  1. Live for $25/month.
  2. Automated for $40/month.
  3. Clickmeeting has an enterprise plan too. If you want details about this plan then check out their official site.
Now it's your time to roll:-

If you are just starting then choosing a free webinar service is not a bad idea.

But if you are planning to host more professional webinar then it is good to go with a better platform with lots of features. Free webinar services are good but they can't match the quality of paid tools.

I can just advice you to choose a free webinar if you are just starting then eventually you can move to paid webinar tools.
Happy Hosting,

Peace out!

Webinar Participant Guidelines: Important Webinar Etiquette.

Webinar participant guidelines, webinar etiquette.
Pin me guys.

Most important webinar participant guidelines. Webinar etiquette which must be followed by every participant.

"First impression is the last impression."

We all have heard this at some point in our lives. And believe it or not, in some cases, it is true also. The same rule apply when you are hosting or attending any conference. Now it doesn't matter whether the conference is physical or virtual.

Our etiquette can either present us as a professional or as an amateur.

Now the same thing applies while hosting a webinar or while attending a webinar. Webinar etiquettes are important for smooth running of any type of webinar. Host and audience or listeners are two parties of webinars. It is important for both parties to follow these etiquettes so that the event can be run professionally and successfully.

These etiquettes are also known as general webinar participant guidelines. These webinar etiquettes or webinar participant guidelines are important for every type of video conferencing. 

If you are thinking to host or attend any webinar or any online conference then it is better to keep these etiquette or guidelines in your mind. 

Webinar Guidelines For Host Or Presenter.

To put a positive impact, a host must have command on its audience. To do so, a host must have to be look professional. It is important to look professional but don't confuse it with being serious.

You have to look professional not serious or tensed. If you will follow the general guidelines of hosting a webinar professionally then, it will be an easy task for you to host a professional event.

Follow these easy rules to look more professional.

Maintain eye contact:-

This is the first thing you can do to look more professional in front of your audience. Try to maintain eye contact with your audience throughout the webinar.

I know, I know you must be thinking that how it is possible to maintain eye contact in a webinar because there are lots of people available at one time.

It doesn't matter how many people you are hosting. Just maintain eye contact with them who ask you something or suggest you something.

In other words maintain eye contact while talking to a specific person. This will make you look more confident and professional.

Check your tools:-

Since you are hosting then, it is important to come online earlier and check the whole setup before other participants join you.

Check your mic and software.
Are they working properly? Because if there will be a glitch during the session then it will look very distracting and unprofessional.

Also, any kind of glitch can break your contact with your audience. Any kind of technical problem will distract your audience from the topic.
So it is important to make a quick check to all webinar tools which you are going to use.

Choose a silent hosting place:-

Suppose you are hosting a webinar and someone is shouting outside which, not only you but also your audience is hearing.
Or
Vehicles are honking, and the sound is distracting the whole webinar.

This sounds very unprofessional, right?

So to avoid these kinds of problems, you must choose a place with no noise. Choose a silent room where no outside noise can disturb your session.

Repeat the questions every time:-

If someone asks you a question and you start directly giving the answer without repeating the question then this might confuse the other people in the audience who haven't heard the question. That confusion will cut them separate from the whole discussion.

That's why repeating the question is a good webinar etiquette. So to avoid this kind of confusion, it is important to repeat the question before giving the answer. In that way the whole audience will understand the context of your talk.

Be prepared and confident:-

This is the power of webinars that both the parties can see and talk to each other. They can give suggestions and can ask questions.

So being a host, it is important for you to be prepared to answer the questions of your audience.
Answer them with confidence. Give them a satisfying answer and don't loose your confidence.

If you will answer them nervously then this will put a negative impact on audience. It will project you as a miserable host in front of your audience.

Now just like a presenter, audience must also follow some webinar guidelines to make a webinar successful. If you, as a viewer, will follow these guidelines then you will be able to contribute in successful run of a webinar.

Webinar guidelines for audiences.

Be there on time:-

For starters you can start by being on time at webinar. Participate in session from starting to end. If you will join the session in the middle, then everyone's attention will go astray. It will disturb the event.

Also if you will not join from start then it will not be easy to follow the discussion. So being a responsible participant, you must attend the webinar on time.

Mind your language:-

Its not a meeting with your friends or a friendly group chat. It is a webinar. So you have to be careful with your words. Don't use bad language during the session.

Apart from this, you should also avoid doing absurd talking. Just be relevant to the theme and try not to disturb others.

Let others talk:-

Have a question? Want to ask something from the host?

Then wait for your turn. Don't disturb others. If the presenter is still answering to someone's question then it is better to wait for you turn. Don't rush.

Also if you have a question then just raise your hand instead of screaming your questions on screen. If the presenter doesn't notice you then just text him your question. Since webinar software offer live chatting option so you can use that feature to ask your question.

Discuss, don't fight:-

Webinars are for healthy discussions, not for fighting and arguments. If you have different thoughts on any specific from other then just discuss about it. Webinars are for discussion and transmission of information and thoughts. By being calm and respectful for other's opinion you can contribute in the successful happening of a webinar.

Webinars are not a one person activity. It is a "one to many" type conversation method which can broadly categorized in two parts i.e. audience and host. Etiquettes of both the parties can make a webinar successful.

Do you like these webinar participant guidelines?
If you do then share it with others.

Peace out!

Webinar Unlocked: Ultimate Guide To What Is A Webinar.

What is a webinar
Pin me Guys.

Do you really know what is a webinar and how it works?

Read the word "webinar" again and again in your mind.
Sounds familiar?
Yes, it sounds like a seminar. But,

A seminar can be dangerous for you.

It might seem too much but gathering at one place during COVID-19 can seriously hazardous for health. So what about the launch of your product or service or what about internal staff meetings? How about training seminars?

Of course all these things are important and an integral part of any company but is it safe to go for a seminar for these purposes? Because no matter how important these things are, these are not important than anyone's health.

Now, we all know that this pandemic will not last forever but would you have to wait for end of covid-19?

We can't change the current situation of the world neither can wait for the ending of this pandemic bit you can change the way or channel reach to your audience and potential customers.

Rather than hustling for other sources of reaching your audience you can host a webinar. Webinar can be new protagonist and host for launch of your new product. 

But...
You can host a successful webinar only when you know what's a webinar and how a webinar works.
Now hosting a webinar, even if you are new, is not a rocket science. Don't worry if you have no or very little knowledge about webinars.

In this the post we will study the core of webinars and will take a step ahead to understand how webinar works.

So What Is A Webinar?

Just Split the word...
Web+seminar,

Simply, a seminar which is hosted and attended on the web is known as a webinar. Webinar is a video conference hosted on the web through various online platforms.

No venue, no arrangements required. In just few clicks you can go face to face with your people from anywhere to anywhere. A webinar is live broadcast of any presentation. Webinars save your time and energy as you need not to rush on any physical place. You can just simply decide the date and time of your event and webinars software will handle the rest.  

You must have encountered the term webcast too. People often confuse it with webinars which is not true. Webcasts and webinars are two completely different terms.

Two-way information transmission in webinar makes it different from Webcasts.

Webinar is a live two-way communication channel.
Your audience not only hear you but also will be able to ask questions and give their suggestions.

That's why most of the educational institutes are using this technique for teaching their students.

Plus, webinars are exclusively used for online audience, or you can say that only online participants attend webinars. The hosting place (the place from where the webinar is being broadcasted) has no physical audience.

So here's what we got...

Key points of the webinar:-

  • Webinar is a web-hosted conference which is used for multipurpose like education, product launch of new products, discussions on any specific topic, suggestions from the audience, solutions of customers problems, ideas discussion and many more.
  • Webinar is separate from Webcasts. Webcasts can be prerecorded presentation in which both physical and virtual audience is available but webinars are live presentation which is exclusively only for online participants.
  • Webinar is two-way communication channels in which both presenters and listeners can freely communicate with each other. Both parties can share their ideas, thoughts and suggestions.
Also, webinars help in maintaining social distancing in case any virus outbreak took place.
You know what I am saying😉

Now we know what is a webinar. But webinar itself is a very diverse term. Nowadays it's being used for so many purposes that it has evolve new forms and types. Unlike other marketing tools, webinars are multitasking. You can use it for multipurpose. Or I should say you can use it for nearly any kind of meeting and training.

Webinars are great for live broadcasting, which makes them a lucrative tool for nearly every industry around the globe.

And with its origin, it became most favourite marketing tool for marketers.
That's why...
More than 57% of marketers run near about 50 webinars per year. (99 firms.com)
And every webinar is helpful in generating 1000+ new leads.
Hosting a webinar is not a difficult thing but hosting a successful one require lots of work and research. You need to identify the purpose of your event. On the basis of your purpose, you have to choose type of webinar you want to host.

Let's take a look on its types and which type you should choose according to your purpose.

Types Of Webinars.

Webinar types
Pin me guys.

Product Launch Webinar:-

Introducing a new product under your brand and want people to know about it?
Then hosting a webinar for your current customers and potential customers will be a good idea.

Why should people care about launch of your new product?

They will only care if there is something for them. Show them how your product will help them. What will be the benefit of your product in their life and how it is better than others.

Just be specific and don't stretch the length by talking here and there. Your webinar must be focused on your new product. Use demos and animation to draw the attention of your audience and showcase the use of your product.

And always try to end this type of webinars with a reward for your customers and audience.
For example, if you are launching a new software then you can reward your audience with a free trial of your new software.

This is the greatest method to generate solid leads through your webinar.

Case Study Webinar:-

When you already have some leads but don't know how to convert them into your customers?

Then you must go with a case study webinar. It is as same as its name suggests. Just reach to your current customers who are currently using your product, record their testimonials and share them with your leads into your live webinar.

This helps you to build up a relation of trust among your potential customers. By showing them the testimonials, you are clearing their mind doubts about your product and encouraging them to give your product a try.

This method works amazingly when you already have some leads for your products. Because leads are those potential customers who needs your product but they just need to be convinced that your product is good and they can trust you and testimonials of your customers will do that for you.

If you are using videos as testimonials then you can stretch the length of your webinar to one hour because people love to watch video testimonials. It will not only engage them with your webinar but will also lead to some good conversions.

Lead-generating webinar:-

Now you know how to tackle the situation when you already got some leads in your pocket.

But what if you don't have one?
Will webinar still be able to land you somewhere?

Well, definitely it will!

You can generate solid leads through a webinar. But while hosting such webinars, you have to loose your pocket a little bit. To get successful, you need to promote your webinar through various types of ad platforms. You have to gather more and more audiences.

Advertise your webinar to a huge audience and invite people to join your session. Here again, you can use the "Reward Method" to invite more audiences. Let's understand it more specifically.

Suppose you have a software which you want to sell and for which you want some customers and for customers, you need some leads, right?
Then advertise your webinar with some reward so that you can attract group of audiences. For example, you can announce a free one month trial for those who will attend the webinar in exchange of their email addresses.

Don't think it is a loss deal you are getting their email address which can be your first step to make new customers for your product or brand.

Sales/Workshop webinar:-

The most common and widely used type of webinar is sales webinar.

This is all about pitching the product to the audience. Although this method is not that good in engaging the audience still it is a good method to get some real and loyal customers.

There are two fundamental rules of hosting a sales webinar.

First, keep it short upto 30-35 minutes if you are new to webinar hosting because as a beginner it can be very difficult to keep your audience engaged for long time. 

But if you already had hosted a few webinars before then you can extend the length up to 90 minutes. It all depends on your experience and expertise.

In this context, Amy Porterfield is a great example. She offers digital marketing courses and her webinars usually run upto 90 minutes. But she is a pro that's why she knows how to keep her audience engaged in her sessions. You can choose the duration according to your level and experience.

Second, Offer them valuable information and then pitch. Educate your audience about your product. Why you should be the one in which they will invest their money. Give them that reason.

Don't introduce your product in starting. First, start a flawless discussion and slowly turn the discussion toward your product. Try to introduce your product after 20-25 minutes. Up to 25 minutes try to engage them in discussion.

The good thing of sales webinar is that your audience already aware about what kind of products/services you are offering.

In other words, they are already your leads. You just have to convert them into your customer. And it all depends how expertly you will host the webinar and will make it engaging.

Educational webinars:-

This type of webinars used for subjective objectives.

For example, an educational webinar can be used to educate your audience about your product, its uses and its benefit.

An educational webinar can be used to teach the audience about the use of your product. This kind of webinars is helpful in brand promotion.

On the other hand, an educational webinar can be used as an inter-company tool to educate and train the employees. It is generally used for non-sale purposes.

The sole purpose of educational webinars is to provide information either to customers or to employees.

Idea discussion:-

I like to call these webinars as non-profit webinars. These webinars don't provide you benefit in the form of money or leads but these webinars are a great discussion.

In fact the discussion is the core of a webinar and if you are able to establish a discussion between you and your audience then it's a win-win. Discussion is the ultimate key to engagement.

Different companies use webinars in different forms according to their requirements. Which type of webinar you should host, completely depends on your niche and audience.

Also, webinars are a subjective tool to its purpose. You should organize a webinar according to your purpose. If you know what is the purpose of your webinar then you can choose wisely.

For example, if you are introducing a new product or a new service to your current customers, potential customers and prospects then hosting a QnA session will not be that effective because a QnA webinar is helpful only when people already knew about your product or service and have questions related to its use or application.

Purpose of a webinar defines which type of webinar you should use. Identify the purpose and choose the type; this is the golden rule for hosting a relatable webinar. Due to diversity of businesses, there can be infinite purposes of hosting a webinar. But mainly these purposes can be categorized in 3 categories.

Let's discuss them.

What Is The Purpose Of Your Webinar?

Like I said before, the purpose of a webinar defines which type of webinar you should host. Whether you should host a QnA or a case study session, it all depends on purpose.
Webinar purpose
Info. source= clickmeeting.com

Determining the purpose of the webinar is first step. If you will take this step carefully only then, you will be able to host a successful webinar.

Educating:-

If main purpose of your webinar is to educate your current and future customers then you must focus on QnA sessions.

One of the best things about QnA webinars is that these webinars are best in terms of engagement. The reason for their being highly engaging is their problem solving nature.

People will ask you questions related to your product and you will answer them or in other words, you will solve their problem related to any specific thing which they are facing with your product.

QnA sessions are also helpful in creating a good relationship between customers and company.
This also encourages potential customers to trust your brand.

Generating leads:-

Who doesn't want to generate leads and convert them into loyal customers? But the process is not as simple and easy as it sounds. It is not easy to convince someone to buy anything. But a good webinar can do the job for you. How?

Suppose you host a case study webinar. Use testimonials and prove good quality of your product to your audience. It will also be good if you point out minor problems which they might face and their solutions to counter the problem.

Try to establish yourself as an expert. Be there for their questions. If you will be able to counter their questions on live session then their trust on you and your product will increase.

Building A Brand:-

Building a brand name in the market is a difficult journey. New businesses always struggle in market. Although there are lots of tasks to perform for small businesses to establish itself but it can start with interaction with their current customers and potential clients.

Interaction with your audience on a regular basis will increase you brand awareness in their mind. Discuss your products and show their value to your audience. Provide them sample products and ask for their reviews. This method always produces positive results.

Building a brand into the market requires certain skill set. You have to show your communication skills into your webinar. Provoke your audience to ask questions about your product and engage them in the discussion by asking their suggestions.
If you want they choose you then make sure they don't forget you.

If we sum up the whole discussion we have above then we can say that webinar is a online live interaction between to parties (host and audience) which starts with a purpose of marketing, training/education or discussion and ends when both parties are have achieved their target. 

Webinar is a method which provides certain sets of features which are helpful for those who use it. These features help the host of a webinar to perform his task more efficiently and effectively with less effort.

Features Of Webinar.

Features of webinar
Pin me, guys.

Live Chatting:-

Live chatting is a valuable feature of webinars. Live chatting includes audio, video and text chatting during an ongoing webinar. It not only helps the host to understand his audience, it also helps the audience to ask their questions and offer their suggestions to host. Live chatting makes the webinar one of the most engaging marketing and educational tool.

Another good thing about it that webinars software run live text chats along with the session. So if it is a huge audience session and the presenter didn't hear you then you can ask your questions through texts.

Text chatting also great when you want to discuss something with a member in the audience.Through texts chatting audience can interact with the host as well as with each other.

Screen Capturing/Recording:-

Want to record the whole webinar session?
Yes, you can.

This is one of the best features of the webinar. Most of the software like Webinarjam has an inbuilt feature of screen recording. Just like chatting, screen recording is also beneficial for both host and audience. The host can record the session and can later share it on other social media accounts and, viewers can record the session and can watch that later whenever they want.

Most of the software these days have screen recording features. But if you are using any free webinar service which offers limited features then you have to use a separate screen recording software.

Some software like Snagit and Screenflow offers great screen recording services. These software allow you to record the whole webinar, edit and save them so that you can go through those points again which you missed during the live session.

Screen sharing:-

A presenter can share his computer screen with others during an ongoing session. This feature is helpful when the presenter wants to demonstrate about his product through documents, presentation and pictures.

Screen sharing is a good feature to lead your audience exactly there where you want them to lead.

Most of the webinar software already come with this great feature but if you are using a tool with limited functionality then you can use screen sharing software to share your desktop data to your audience.

These software allow you to share only those things which you want to share with your audience. To avoid having personal data shared, you can activate privacy settings.

Two-ways communication channel:-

As I already had mentioned that it is a great two-way communication channel. Both parties participate equally in the webinar.

Both sides can interact with each other. This particular feature makes it a great tool of real-time problem-solving. The audience can ask, and you can answer them on the live webinar at real-time.

Live feature of webinars makes it fastest problem solving tool.

Synchronised presentation:-

Webinars allow you to run a presentation alongside a live webinar.You can demonstrate your view while you are hosting a webinar.

You can also share your product benefits, its uses and other information through webinar presentation.
