Best Practices for Presenting a Webinar

Let’s face it. If you’re a speaker for a webinar, you probably don’t have time to learn the conferencing platform on which you’ll be presenting.  And often, all the features that you’ll learn on a technical tour just aren’t applicable.

What you need to know, and quickly, are the bare bones basics: how to push slides, how to manage chats, and how to share your desktop or applications. You probably will not need to know the more advanced features, as someone will either be doing those for you, or you just don’t need them.

With that said, here is your opportunity to shine…we’ve created a short deck just for you! Next time you’re speaking on a ReadyTalk powered webinar, reference this handy cheat “sheet” which provides those ReadyTalk basics.

Use this as a guide to push slides, manage chat, and share your desktop. Additionally, the deck includes a map of the ReadyTalk interface and a URL to test your computer compatibility. We’ve also included a handful of additional slides for added functionality, just in case you are feeling adventurous. And at the end, there is a line for ReadyTalk Customer Care…if you need help or have questions.

Click here to view the deck .

And feel free to reference the blog from Webinar Success, written by Ken Molay. He discusses some best practices helpful to guest speakers on webinars, and was the inspiration for our handy guide.

Good luck with your webinar, and let us know if you have any questions.
