5 Novice Mistakes to Avoid During Webinars
Becky Pluth from the Bob Pike Group has an interesting blog post titled, “Webinars: 5 Novice Mistakes to Avoid.” I was surprised by the advice to provide a handout; most webinars I’ve attended did not include a handout (except for the webinars offered by the Bob Pike Group!) This may be something to consider for the future. Becky also recommends having an interaction every four minutes (a poll, giving a thumbs up, etc.); providing visuals (I believe this is critical during a webinar, where participants must have something to look at while you are talking); having back-up plans in the case of technical difficulties; and conducting a “dress rehearsal” to be sure of timing, etc.
