Webinars have become an excellent medium for providing education and information delivery. Webinars can reduce meeting costs in regards to facilities, travel, lodging, meals and extend time away from necessary tasks and projects. They are also an excellent means of reducing your carbon footprint if you support current sustainability efforts. You should choose carefully the format that best serves your objectives because not all formats give the same results.
Standard webinar formats provide the listener with the program slides via the web and audio via the telephone or the web, depending on the service you use. Current surveys report that as high as 85% of attendees on this format become disengaged with the webinar over the course of a typical one hour presentation. Surveyed participants report texting, sending email, taking phone calls, having conversations with colleagues, and some even left the room and returned to catch the end of the program or missed the balance all together. Obviously the desired outcome would not be reached with these participants and your ROI decreases.
Business Speakers Bureau Webinars provide "Live Video Webinars" that keep your participants connected by using high quality streaming video. All of the components are presented together so you hear the presentation, see the slides and and connect with the presenter all on your computer terminal. Survey results for Live Streaming Webinars is almost exactly reversed. Surveyed participants report very little disengagement which means more learning and a much higher ROI for you.
