Answer questions during webinars

Tuesday, June 18 2013

Many business professionals use their video conferencing software to conduct webinars. The educational sessions are beneficial, particularly if a company has offices scattered around the world and requires an efficient way to train all new hires. Webinars are valuable for teaching remote participants how to handle certain procedures. 

There are a few best practices you should adhere to in order to ensure that your webinars will be successful. For instance, Social Media Today recommends allowing participants to ask questions during the web sessions. This allows viewers to seek clarity for confusing points and topics. 

According to the source, you should dedicate at least half of the webinar's runtime to ensure that there is sufficient time for questions and answers. If you don't carefully schedule the webinar, you'll run over schedule and some audience members will have to log out. 

Take the time to answer as many questions as possible, but also allow people to email other queries following the webinar. Respond to these messages quickly and link to helpful sources so participants can access all necessary information without performing research on their own.
