What is a Webinar?

New to this whole webinar thing? Let’s start at the beginning!

Webinars are online video workshops. They’re the best way to build credibility, earn trust, and grow the audience that’ll become your customers. They can be live or automated, or both!

With the right platform and great content, you can parlay webinars into sales— and lot’s of ‘em!

For independent creators, webinars can be the key to standing out from the rest of the crowd. That’s because they allow you to have a real conversation with your audience, and show exactly what you’ve got to offer. They’re the closest thing to a face-to-face interaction. Webinars are personal, intimate, and direct.

In other words, they’re effective!

And now, webinars are easy. Webinar software has evolved over the last few years to become more advanced, none more so than WebinarNinja. What makes our software different is one thing above all: user-friendliness. Once you’ve got the basics down, you can set up a webinar in seconds.

Here’s how, in 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Create It

With WebinarNinja, you can create a new webinar in less time than it takes to update your Facebook status. From our Create New Webinar page, you simply enter a title, set a date and time, and it’s ready to roll! From there, you can edit details like the registration page and email notifications.

Of course, you’ll prepare the specifics of your presentation. But the webinar and its link are ready when you are.

Step 2: Share It

Next, it’s time to invite your audience. You have two options: private or public. A private webinar can only be attended by those you’ve invited yourself. You send them a link via email, they click it at the appointed time, and they’re off to your presentation.

For maximum attendance, we recommend going public. You still invite specific people the same way, but anyone else who’s interested can still attend. Your original invitees can invite others. You can share the webinar via social media. People can even find your webinar through our platform’s own index, the Webinar Finder.

Step 3: Host It

The webinar is created and shared. Now it’s time for the show!

Rest easy: WebinarNinja’s number one priority is taking the stress out of hosting. It’s simple. Our clean, intuitive controls and seamless tech make hosting a webinar easy as a phone call. Once you’re familiar, you’ll be able to focus completely on your message and its content, not on the software.

You can host on camera, speak over a slide presentation or shared screen, or all the above in combination.

It’s up to you, and it’s stress-free. You can upload slides, ads, images, and calls to action directly onto the platform. You can choose and modify the layout of your presentation. During the webinar, you can chat with attendees, take polls, and answer questions. You can even invite others to join in the presentation via their own webcams.

It’s as simple or elaborate as you choose to make it! However you decide to do it, WebinarNinja makes it a snap.

Your job is to have fun, enjoy it, and let the value of your content shine. WebinarNinja records and saves your webinars, so you can offer replays for anyone who’s interested. It’s worry-free creating, sharing, and hosting.

You’ve got the passion. You’ve got the expertise. We’ve got the platform. Get started!
