If you want to have a successful teleseminar or webinar, it’s helpful to understand what mistakes are commonly made that cause them to be less successful than they should have been. By knowing the mistakes others have made, you can learn and avoid making the same mistakes.

If You Fail To Plan, You Plan To Fail

Know what you’re going to talk about, have some notes written down so that you can make sure you cover all of the points you want to cover. Refresh yourself about the topic you want to talk about, so that you know it inside and out, as work out how you want to deliver this information so that it resonates with your audience.

Not Putting your Audience First

Always remember that everything you do in business is really all about your audience and not you. Your audience aren’t really interested in some long winded background story as much as they are interested in hearing about something about learning what can make them do something better, know more, make more, or whatever the problem is that you’re solving.

Not Testing Out the Software

Nowadays most people are familiar with lots of different software platforms and this leads people to think that they can easily understand something new. I’ve done this myself, but it’s always easier to learn in advance of your live teleseminar, webinar, etc… as learning on the job so to speak will distract you and you will not engage your audience as you should.

Not Practicing

You’ll want to practice a couple of times so that you can get the timing right and not miss anything. Even though you don’t want to sound like you’re reading a script during the teleseminar, going through it as naturally as possible will help make you feel more comfortable.

Not Allowing Questions

Engagement is the most important part of a live event, and if you don’t allow questions you’re not giving the audience the engagement that they’ll want. This could prove to be a big mistake if people leave your event more confused and with unanswered questions.

Not Balancing Promotion with Valuable Content

You have no doubt attended a teleseminar or webinar that is solely focused on selling or promotion, did it work or did it turn you off? Don’t make your entire teleseminar a long infomercial. Offer real value to the attendees that make them trust you more and want to know more about you instead.

Not Providing a Call To Action

While you don’t want to overly promote, it is a mistake not to include a call to action. Buy, share, review… whatever it is that you want the audience to do, ask them to do it and a percentage of them will follow through and do it.

Not Following Up

When the actual event is over is when the real magic happens, if you follow up and continue the engagement started by your teleseminar. If you don’t follow up, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity.

If you avoid making these mistakes, you’re sure to have a more successful teleseminar. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel; instead let those who have gone before you show you the way. Avoid these mistakes by learning about them.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
