What Is A Webinar?
A webinar is an event that is hosted and viewable online by a specific (select) group of people. Some webinars have an admission fee but most of them are free.
The combination of video and audio (much like a movie) makes them very persuasive. The host can present video, slides, and computer generated graphics. In the beginning most webinars were a two-way communication where viewers would chime in (live testimonials)
I happen to be on a LOT of lists. It's a hazard of being an online entrepreneur.
The main reason that I subscribe to so many lists is to stay on top of the newest trends. Many times the information I receive comes in the form of a webinar.
But you know what I truly hate?
It's when you click on the link in the email and they want you to come back at a later time to watch the webinar!
In my opinion, one of the most ineffective things you can do is to send a link to a webinar that starts later.
Here's the situation:
You managed to get someone's attention in a sea of crowded messages. This alone is a rare occurence today.
But then you take that 'gift of attention' for granted, and pratically insult us, by asking us to report back at a later date and time.
In a word I think that this is INSANE!
This is simply that online marketer's arrogance. They think; "my offer is so good that they will return to watch my webinar."
I say thee "Nay!"
There are just too many webinars and other offers competing for our attention. This is a dicely play in today's crowded email boxes.
Yes, some will make the argument that you close more sales and get a better response by having the attendees there in real time.
That may have been true in the past. And in 'online time' the past would be about 8 months ago.
But that's not true now and proof of this is the fact that live webinar attendence is down -- way down!
My other gripe is the 'razzle-dazzle' software that some companies try to get you to buy to 'host' your webinar. It's just way too expensive.
Some companies charge several hundred dollars a month. But, in my opinion, their days are numbered.
Let's face it, most of the live webinars ultimately send out a "replay" link anyway. (Guess why? It's because the attendence was so poor during the live webinar).
And when you get the replay link this means that you are really just watching a video. And no one needs fancy-smancy software for that. (Thanks YouTube).
The real secret to webinar success is to have an offer that captures attention and, of course, converts!
So let me save you the trouble of having to register and come back at a later date and time.

It will show you how to make a substanial monthly income online even if you are on the verge of throwing in the towel. (You can do it for very little money using the exact same high converting webinar).
