Webinars are a tried and tested way for getting valuable leads and promoting your business, product or services. They are also a useful medium for delivering training.
You may have heard it said that ideas are a dime a dozen, but people that make their ideas happen are worth their weight in gold.
So I took action and I am pleased to say that I launched my first webinar earlier this month. If you missed it, you can register for the second session this Friday 26th February 2016.
Some of you may have been doing webinars for a long time, and this is no big deal, but for the rest of you who have plans to do webinars and have not acted on that plan, I will share with you seven things that contributed to the successful launch of my first webinar.
7 Things that make a successful webinar
The process of creation starts with a thought – an idea, conception, visualisation. Everything you see was once someone’s idea. Nothing exists in your world that did not first start as pure thought ~ Neal Donald Walsch, American author of the series “Conversation with God”
I have always been fascinated by the phrase ‘creating something from nothing’. This may mean nothing to you but it does resonate with me.
I look at the world around me. All I see are the things that were not around a few years ago suddenly being the things that everyone is using or talking about. You know some of these things:
- The selfie stick
- The electric car
- The smart watch
- The hover-board
- The driverless car
Yet it’s easy to look at these gadgets and think of yourself as a non-creative person simply because you have not invented a world-changing device.

From me to you.
I sat down to catch up on the day’s news on television and there was some talk about the slight increase in the number of unemployed persons. My initial reaction was that this does not affect me as I run my own business. I rephrased the question so that it could apply to me.
What would happen to me if someone turned up next door or across the road and started selling the same type of products and services as I do?
Competition at my door
I turned up to work one morning only to find a sign hanging on the door of the shop across the road saying “New Pharmacy Opening Soon”. This was completely unexpected as I was very comfortable being the only dispensing chemist in the area. My customers began to pledge their loyalty to me and promised to continue to cross the road and bring their business to me.
Goals are the foundation of your dreams and the driving force behind your desired lifestyle. Whether your have an ambition to run a marathon or take up heathy eating , setting goals and having them written down will increase your chances of achieving success.
People with clear written goals accomplish far more in a shorter period than people without goals can ever imagine ~ Brian Tracey
If we all agree that goals are important to success, why do many people not have goals? Of the people that have goals, only a few have written goals and fewer still regularly review their goals and plans.
Whatever your reasons for not having a written goal, let me give you 10 reasons why you should have written goals for all areas of your life.
#1. Take Charge And Take Control Of Your Life
I had a chance encounter with a friend as she commuted home from work one Friday afternoon and during our conversation, I asked “how are you getting on with your job?”. “So so” she replied.
“So so” was a less than enthusiastic answer which made me wonder if she actually enjoyed her job.
According to a Forbes article quoting a gallop report, there are twice as many “actively disengaged” in the world as there are “engaged” workers who love their jobs. According to the quoted article, 13% of workers feel engaged with their jobs and a whopping 63% have some measure of dissatisfaction with their job.
So what are the possibilities for these 63% who are disengaged?
Have you ever listened to a speech or presentation and at the end you struggled to remember what was said or why you attended the event in the first place? I have. Maybe you have been the presenter that left your audience asking themselves why they bothered to turn up. I have.
In todays fast changing world, one of the demands of your audience as you speak and make presentations is that you give them something to remember and something to make their lives better.
Speaking is a means of communicating a message. Messages that are remembered always have something that resonates with the listener and something that brings a challenge to change.
Even when your speech is to inform or to entertain, it will make a difference to your audience if your message carries with it the seed of life change. How do you do this?
