Phase 1 of a successful webinar is in the Preparation.  In the preparation phase you make decisions about the best medium to use to present your content, and the webinar software you'll implement to do so in the best way possible (and of course, we recommend our software,WebinarJam).

Phase 2 is Promotion, and we discussed how the right registration process can mean more participation in the webinar by the people most interested in the topic.

Phase 3 was Presentation, where you learned that viewer engagement increases with activities such as polls and Q & A chats.

In this email training, we're covering Phase 4 of a successful webinar- Profit.

There are three opportunities during a webinar to profit from all of the hard work you're doing promoting and presenting the content.   Simply put- you can profit before, during, or after.

The most obvious way to turn a profit before your seminar even begins is to charge for registration.  If you're delivering a content-rich presentation or interview, it makes sense to be compensated for it.  Because charging for a webinar will definitely impact the number of people you have at the event, this strategy is best reserved for seminars where there won't be a product or services pitch during the event.

The other way to profit before the webinar is through "pre-event training".    After registration on the confirmation page it's a great time to sell a low-cost and related product with a headline along the lines of "want a head-start on the training? Get the quick start guide…"

Profiting during the webinar is the most commonly thought of place to profit.  You can do a sales presentation and give a link to your product purchase right in the chat area of the webinar service.  Some services even will allow you to embed a product picture and opportunity to buy right in the webinar window (ours does!).

After your webinar, be sure to use the powers of the autoreponder system and replays to continue to monetize the event.  The replay should be sent to everyone who registered for the seminar, whether they attended it live or not, because there's always the possibility that a viewer will need to hear the sales message a second time before buying.

This is also the time to add promotions for different, but related products to your autoresponder series.  If you've given a webinar on paper training your dog, for example, you can follow up with products on leash training, agility, or tricks.  You can promote branded dog items, or your own dog food.  And in this manner, your post-webinar profit points are so numerous, they are limited only by your imagination.

This ends our brief 4-part email training on how to run a successful webinar.  We've told you briefly about our new webinar softwareWebinarJam, which we created because we were frustrated with the other solutions in the marketplace, which are both incredibly expensive, and not nearly as marketer-friendly.

In addition to the ability to do everything we recommended in this training series, WebinarJam also:

·                Allows you to schedule your webinar for now or in the future, notifies your registrants that the webinar is starting, opens the webinar room and takes care of the recording
·                Gives access to an unlimited number of attendees, and you can create an unlimited number of webinars
·                Lets you have as many presenters or administrators as you need to manage your event.  So you can easily have several people on camera for interviews, while members of your staff monitor the chat room, or change the graphics, or set up a new poll.
·                Integrates easily with your site using a simple embed code- so no need for complicated design or coding- and no need to bring your customers away from your website for the experience.  You can brand yourself- not someone else!
·                Gives you social plugins, attendee metrics, revenue figures and much much more!
