Building Content and Audience – The Multi-purpose Webinar Rules!

As marketers, we often have a full plate. If we are going to keep our brand relative to our audience, we want to deliver engaging content that keeps them listening intently. All of us know that the underlying platform to our everyday marketing tactics is content, content, and more content. There’s not enough time in the day to create the amount of content we need to keep our audience listening! I wish I could ‘blink’ my eyes and the content I’m thinking of would magically appear.genie lamp

Since I’m no marketing genie, I’m always looking for ways to create more content.

New Feature: Playback Duration Reporting

Webinars can be a major investment for any company, from both a time and dollar perspective. In order to maximize the return on your investment, we always recommend using ReadyTalk’s easy-to-use recording and playback tools to extend the conversation with your audience after the live event is over.

We have added an additional metric to the playback recording report in Conference Center that displays the amount of time a participant views a recording playback.

Whether you’re using webinars for lead generation and qualification, online training and certification, or sales demonstrations, tracking how long a participant views your content can help with the following:

  • Measure the level of audience engagement during your recordings and customize your follow-up based on how long they viewed it
  • Better prioritize lead scoring and lead follow-up with your marketing automation platform
