Webinars are a time consuming endeavor. I was going to try to quantify the number of man hours required for a successful webinar, but I’ll save that for another post. By the time you come up with a topic, find and manage a speaker, invite attendees and put together an engaging slide deck, you’ve easily done a full day’s work and that’s just the start. It takes a lot of leads to reach a positive ROI on that kind of investment.

Using webinars for content marketing is another way to improve ROI. A single webinar can easily be re-purposed to fit other formats. In fact, we recently identified 19 pieces of content that can be created from every webinar.

webinars for content marketing: 19 pieces of content from one webinarEvery webinar has components that must be created but can than later be re-purposed. Those include:

  • Emails
  • Registration page
  • Slide Deck
  • Polls
  • Chat
  • Q&A
  • Twitter stream
  • Archive page
