Webinar, webinar oh webinar
As it seems that webinars are here to stay and in some cases replacing the physical meeting we have made the decision to make some changes to our weekly webinars. Not that you should notice to much of a difference.
There are a number of webinar providers who are all interested in something other than providing a service and that is your cash. We started out using GVO who didn't charge that much, it was only about £10 a month however that was reflected in a poor service. I'm sure some of you can remember those early webinars with the 'Gremlins', thats if they worked at all.
Then we moved onto our current provider who I have been really happy with. WebinarJam has given us a carefree service but it costs £425 a year, which is about £8 a webinar at the moment.
So I have been looking around to see if there are any other alternatives and guess what there are loads, but one has proved to be just what we want. The same level of service as WebinarJam based on the same platform which is Google Hangouts. So we have the security that the webinar platform is solid and proven. While lowering the price to £70 a year making each webinar about £1.33. Result!!!
Now, I know what you are thinking. What if it goes belly up?
I have WebinarJam until November 2016 so we have a back up and if it does not perform like we want it to then we will revert back to WebinarJam later in the year. So we have a safety net.
On our support site (benumber1.co.uk) you will see a new menu on the left hand side with the current link to tomorrows webinar (18th march) which links externally to the webinar. The link for the 25th March webinar keeps you on our website.
Registration will go live after the previous webinar, but you can take a quick look if you want. I have no doubt it will take us a few weeks to get used to it and iron out any creases, but it is all set to go live from next week.
For those of you who help run the webinars the only change as far as you need to know is on the set up side and your invitation to host link will change. Instead of receiving an email you will be invited into the webinar as i set it up. I will be doing a video showing this and I will send it to you asap.
