The presentation. The meat and potatoes.
Like many of you, I use PowerPoint on an almost daily basis.
My webinars are no difference. But you don’t have to use PowerPoint.
You can use several other tools like Keynote (for Mac users) or the free LibreOffice and Google Drive.
No matter what you use, the idea is the same. Keep it simple, keep it moving.
How can you create your top notch Webinar presentation?
More important, how can you do it without wasting a ton of time?
Your content is still the King. And Webinars are no exception.
Beautiful designs and elaborate images will not increase your sales (unless you’re selling graphic design…)
So keep it simple! Follow these tips to put together your next Webinar presentation in no time!

How much information are you going to give away for free? The answer will surprise you.
Webinars are about establishing yourself as an expert. Building relationships. Creating trust.
You can’t do that if you have something to hide.
Put your best stuff out there in your webinar. You don’t have to put everything out there, but put your best stuff out there.
If you’re hiding something, no one will know your true genius in your field.
And they’ll know you have something to hide! Not much trust there.
Follow these 5 steps to have a successful web event…
- Remember the 80/20 Rule
- Give Actionable Steps

What’s your biggest fear about hosting a webinar?
Mine hasn’t changed, even after doing nearly 100 webinars.
What if no one shows up? What if people don’t care what I have to say?
Here’s the good news. It really does not matter.
Especially on the first one. But even after you’ve done a few of them, you can always gain something from presenting your webinar to even the smallest audiences…
- Get experience presenting your webinars
- Record the presentation and repurpose it later
- You can still make a sale!
In most webinar platforms, the attendance is hidden. They don’t know they are alone.
Presenting to an empty room is tough. Presenting to an empty webinar is easy.
Now, you don’t want to be sitting in there alone. So what do you need to do?
Get folks to show up.
In this episode, we talk about how you can fill up your webinar event with highly targeted potential customers.

If you’re listening to this podcast, I can make one assumption…
You want to make some money.
Do you have something to sell?
More importantly, do you have something that people want to buy?
The second episode in the Webinational.com 30 Days to a Profitable Webinar series focuses on finding something to sell.
Even better, we’re going to talk about selling when you don’t actually HAVE anything!
Here are the four options discussed in the podcast…
- Creating an eBook to sell
- Selling a group training
- 1 on 1 Consulting
- Selling someone elses stuff – Affiliate Products from sites like ClickBank
There are lots of other products. These are some of my favorites.
