3 Things To Know Before You Host Your First Virtual Event
Virtual events have exploded in popularity in the past year. Their sheer flexibility makes them highly useful tools for organizations of all sizes.
First -- a little background: A virtual event can be anything from a small online meeting in your living room to a multinational webinar attended by hundreds of people. What these two ends of the spectrum have in common is the ability to create an interactive and engaging experience no matter where your audience is seated.
Here’s what to know:
1. Take a moment before you begin planning to decide what it is you really want to convey to your audience. In other words, what is the primary purpose of the meeting? What outcome do you seek?
2. Then begin planning with the intent to guide your audience, directing them where you want to take them, using powerful presentations, interaction, real-time chats, and/or follow ups to their actual questions.
3. Research the platforms available to you. There are dozens -- from Zoom to WebEx, Microsoft Team, to a number of others with very specific features and benefits. Now that you have mapped out the purpose of your meeting and your approach, you’ll be ideally poised to choose the right platform for your needs.
