This Week is Webinar Week at MLSP, so I thought I would piggyback my posts this week starting with a post on Webinar Tools.
If you are interested in how to leverage Webinars to market and make money online, then you need to be at these webinars.
All of MLSP blog posts & training webinars will have one goal: to get you hosting your first webinar this week!
Here's the link to today's blog post by Steve Jaffe.
Webinar Bootcamp Week – Webinar Tools
Today I'm just going to be talking about the tools to doing a webinar, nothing else.
When we talk about what equipment you need to do a webinar, I'm talking about the physical equipment.
Things like camera, computer, lighting, and audio.
For my camera, I just use the one on my laptop, or I also have a Logitech C930e, which I Like.
For lighting, I just use the light in my office, nothing special.
I do have some professional lighting that I use once in awhile but most of the time I just use the overhead light in my office.
For my audio, I have two pieces that I use.
First I have a Label mic that I like but tend to use this more when I'm doing videos from my iPhone.
What I use most of the time for my webinars is my Blue Yeti USB. It's a little spending but well worth it. I think it runs around $125.
When we talk about software, two basic software packages for presentations are preferred.
The first one is Microsoft Powerpoint, which works on both the Mac and the PC.
The second is Keynote, which is a Mac only program.
Both are great and whichever preference you have is fine.
3. Webinar Platform
Here's where the debate comes in.
There are some great platforms out there for conducting your webinars.
I'm going to list a few here, and it will all depend on your budget and preference.
These aren't in any specific order.
1. Google Hangouts – This is a free platform, and a lot of people love using it.
2. Zoom – This is another free platform like Google hangouts that many leaders are starting to use.
3. GotoMeeting/GotoWebinar – This is the old tried and true platform that is a little spendy but works reliably – monthly.
4. WebinarsOnAir – This is a great platform based on the Google Hangout technology with added bells and whistles – monthly.
5. WebinarJam – This is also based on Google Hangout technology with the most bells and whistles – annual fee.
These are all good platforms, and each has different pros and cons.
My personal preference for the cost and all of the bells and whistles is WebinarJam.
I hope this has given you some help and insight on what you need to get started.
The cost to get a webinar going is very minimal and the return is huge.
Here are some other posts that may help you get your webinars started:
I look forward to seeing you on your next webinar.
