Webinars For Dummies gives you the insider's perspective on techniques that have been proven effective time and again. Webinars are becoming increasingly common as a way for businesses to connect with customers and partners without distance being a factor.

Creating what is essentially an archival presentation means considering a host of factors surrounding both content and organization. Webinars For Dummies includes all the information your business needs to start creating custom webcasts, including: A webinar overview, and how to determine your need, budget, and available tools Topic selection, script creation, graphic production, and marketing Creation advice, including live troubleshooting and how to handle viewer questions Archiving tips, and how to integrate webinars into a marketing plan You'll also find special tips for effective production and marketing, tips for readying yourself for the webinar, and case studies that illustrate successful webinar techniques.
