5 Tips to Grow Your Business through Webinars

Webinars are useless if only you and a couple of your current clients see it. If you want to use webinars to grow your business, you need to reach a new audience and convert new clients and customers. Here are 5 tips to help you get it right.


5 Tips to Grow Your Business with Webinars

1. Have a strong topic (and title)

If your topic is not appealing enough, no one will want to watch your webinar. You have to approach a topic that your customers are interested in hearing about. Think about what issues they face and how your product helps to overcome them. Can you use this as an angle for your webinar? Let’s say that you produce Photoshop actions for photographers. Your webinar could be showing how to edit a photograph in a certain way that uses your actions. Create a compelling title which makes viewers just need to click on it and find out what you have to say.

2. Get big-name guests

Everyone wants to see a star, and even if you can’t bring in a real celebrity, you can at least bring in someone whose name is known in your industry. Experts are the best people to have hosting webinars for you or coming on as your guests. If you can, find an influencer, as they will bring their followers along to the webinar as well. This is really important for expanding your reach. You also gain credibility with the presence of an expert, which gives your brand more authority.

3. Make a killer landing page

When your potential viewers see marketing for your webinar, read an email, or click on a link, you need to bring them to a killer landing page. It should give them all of the information they need about when the webinar is, why it will help them, how to register and how to view, and why they shouldn’t just click away and watch something else. The landing page should be as finely designed as your main website landing page, because it is hugely important. Make it look good but be clear, and have signing up as your call to action.

4. Use email drip marketing

Don’t just send out one email and hope that it does the job. You can use drip marketing to ensure that everyone hears your message. Start out with an email promoting the webinar. For everyone that clicks through but doesn’t sign up, send them a reminder with a promise of great things to come. For everyone that never even opens the email, send it again with a different subject line. After the webinar has run, you have another opportunity to promote it. You can use the emails of anyone who read the email, clicked through but didn’t sign up, or signed up but didn’t watch live for the next step.

5. Have follow-ups with recordings

Finally, follow-up after the webinar with recordings of what they missed. If you are selling access to the recording, just include a brief clip. It should be informative, interesting, and include some key tips – something that shows viewers they won’t want to miss out on the whole thing. This can encourage further sales or views long after the webinar has finished airing. You can even keep these clips up on sites like YouTube for evergreen conversions.

Marketing a webinar is almost more important than the content, but not quite. The better your webinar is, the more likely it is that you will have more repeat viewers the next time you host one.
