What is a Virtual Event and How can I use one to get more leads?

Recommended Posts

A virtual event is an audio or video event held online such as a teleseminar, webinar, conference, weekly live stream event (such as UstreamTV) or a weekly live talk radio show (such as www.BlogTalkRadio).

You conduct one of these events to get information out about your company or product, give instructions on how to use a new program or products, or to bring in one or more experts in different fields relating to your business to help establish yourself as a industry expert.

Today we focus on using a Teleseminar to increase your client base, gain more leads or drive traffic to your website. We all know that you have to have a website to gain internet business and that you need that website ranked high in order to drive more traffic to your site. What you might not know in this “payperclick” era is that there is a way you can do this for little to no cost. You can use the latest technology of a tele-seminar. You can set one up at www.Freeconferencecalling.com. You will get a PIN number, a conference number and a host code. They have a lot of great features and can hold up to 100 people on the line at once. Your guests call in, enter their PIN number at the specified date and time that you pre-arrange and Voila! You have a teleseminar. You can do this yourself pretty easily or hire someone to help you out with it as things get a little busy during the conference, especially if you are the host and the technology person. You can even get a recording of your call here. Once you conducted your teleseminar there are now several ways you can repurpose that material.

The first thing is to convert that audio recording to a web link and get it up on your website. This does a couple of things:

1. It adds audio to your website and increases the people stopping at your site so they can check it out.

2. Establishes you as someone who is on the cutting edge of things and stays on top of the latest technology.

3. It gets your information out to people who are audio learners.

4. It educates people who are more audio learners than visual learners.

5. (Most Important!) It gives you materials to have transcribed so that you now have weekly blog or article submission information that you don’t have to keep repeating this information to others.

6. You can convert this recording to a CD or MP3 player for distribution about your product, company or ideas either for free or for a small fee at events such as live conferencing or to hand out as your business card.

7. You can use your audio recordings with a Power Point Presentation and convert it to video for further site submissions, driving traffic, generating leads, getting out information or setting yourself as an industry leader.

When you host your tele-seminar, you can have people sign up on your web page before the event in order to generate leads, or you can offer your recording to people who sign up for it. This drives traffic and generates leads. With the recordings you won’t have to keep repeating the same information to others, they can listen to the recordings at their pace and time.

You can have more than one guest on your teleconference at a time in order to answer questions about different parts of your industry to your client. This will save on costs if you can split the cost of the event with the other guest speakers.

You can do all this on your own, but make sure you establish your goals and objectives before you begin. If you need help with learning the technology or just want to save time and money, hire a Virtual Event Specialist. This is a growing field in this newest marketing trend. Good luck and Many Happy Returns!

As a matter of fact I teach that class and we had many VAs come out of it with their Virtual Event Specialist Certification and are now making a higher hourly rate helping clients set up Webinars and Teleseminars. I have been working in this field for the last couple of years and have gotten to watch so many training classes for free, just because I was recording them, that I feel like I have gotten a Masters degree in Internet Marketing vicariously.

 

We are re-opening the class, at VAClassroom, at the end of this month and I hope you will join us!
