Tips for Success
Prior to Webinar Start
- If you plan to share your entire desktop, turn off any instant-messaging applications, notification software or other programs that may interrupt or distract from the Webinar.
- Turn off any streaming media applications that may take up bandwidth and resource-intensive applications that may be taxing processor ability.
- Set the desktop display to a neutral background and adjust display settings to a mid-range resolution (e.g., 1024 x 768) to improve the display for attendees with lesser settings. This is also the optimal setting for recording a Webinar.
- Clean up your desktop before a Webinar or use the Clean Screen feature when showing your desktop to avoid distracting your attendees.
- Have the documents you wish to share ready to be accessed in one or two clicks.
- Run a Practice Session with your panelists and any other organizers to familiarize yourself with the format and flow of your online presentation.
Managing the Webinar
- Arrive a few minutes early to greet the attendees as they arrive, and start the Webinar on time. It also helps to have a welcome presentation running during this time. Your presence in these opening minutes can help establish the tone and direction of the Webinar.
- Provide an agenda at the start of the Webinar, including estimated duration, and stick to it.
- Inform attendees what the purpose/goal of the Webinar is, what to expect and when and how to ask questions and participate in the Webinar.
- Provide information on how to use equipment or services and how to get assistance if needed.
- Consider having another organizer help manage and monitor questions and answers.
- Encourage participation by using the Polling feature.
- End the Webinar clearly. Make sure all the attendees know that the Webinar is formally over and stay on the line to address any last questions.
- If dialing in to the Webinar using a telephone, avoid using cellular and cordless phones due to static. Use the phone handset or a headset instead of speakerphones to avoid background noise, tunnel effect and sentence clipping.
- If using a telephone, turn off your call waiting. The beep of a new call on another line can be heard by everyone.
- If using a telephone, avoid putting your phone on hold during the presentation. Your hold music will play into the conference call and make it impossible for other attendees to continue the Webinar.
- If you find you are having a sound quality issue, hang up and dial back in (telephone) or check your mic and speaker devices (VoIP). Sometimes these problems clear themselves when the bad connection is terminated.
- If presenting, join the Webinar from a location where there is little background noise.
- Introduce yourself when you begin speaking and ask your panelists to also identify themselves before speaking. Not everyone in the Webinar may know everyone else's voice.
