COVID-19 has impacted the marketing environment in several ways, but it has also paved the way for new opportunities, such as the rise in webinars as a marketing tool.
With conferences, events, and other face-to-face interactions getting canceled, companies are increasingly leveraging webinars to generate leads and meet their business objectives. Webinars are an interactive medium that lets you deliver valuable content to your audience while establishing credibility.
While many are waking up to webinars now, it’s interesting to note that 61% of marketers have already been using webinars as a content marketing tactic.
From educating people about your new product and offering solutions to establishing yourself as an expert and building relationships, there’s a lot you can achieve through successful webinars.

Prepare valuable content
Once you narrow down on the topic, the next step is to choose the webinar format that will do justice to the topic and your business. These are some popular webinar formats:Continue reading
