Why a webinar?
Webinars are a great way to create value for your clients and prospective clients. Take one hour out of your day to have a conversation with people interested in your firm. You may find new clients, or you may strengthen relationships of existing clients. Whereas emails can be easily missed in the inboxes of busy professionals, webinars allow for your firm to share insights and ideas about your work over an extended period of time.
What software should we use?
GoToWebinar is an easy to use and robust software. You can also use Join.me and Skype for online meetings, which may be all you need to host your first few webinars.
How do I get started?
Pick a topic, find a date and create marketing materials for your webinar. E-mail and social media can be useful marketing tactics, but also consider leveraging other organizations with similar interests. Maybe a local Chamber of Commerce would like to promote your webinar to business owners.
