Episode 18 – 5 Techniques to Keep Your Crowd

You’ve filled up your Webinar today. Are they going to stay?


Sometimes we get too caught up in the big stats. How many signed up? How many showed up?

But what really matters is… how many stayed?

Transitions are a major factor to who stays and who does not. You have to plan your transitions ahead of time to really give a killer presentation.

So here are 5 techniques that will keep your webinar attendees engaged and attentive during your next webinar…

Asking Questions: Ask questions that engage people’s brains.

Give a Recap: You know the old line, tell them, tell them you told them, etc…

Telling a Story: Stories are the basic way that humans communicate. And stories are supposed to have a point. People will stick around for the point! (for a while)

Fill in the Blanks: Begin with the end in mind. Then pave the road to it.

Use a Hook: Set the line and reel ’em in! What gets people excited? How can they do it?

Transitions between each segment of your presentation are crucial. And you need to think about them before you get on the webinar.

What’s your favorite transition method?
