Can you provide us with some dos and don’ts for preparing a webcast?
Be prepared and focused and avoid long breaks. Also, I recommend that duration should not be longer than 90 minutes, as people find it hard to concentrate for a longer period of time. During the event, try to keep the attention of your audience with some markers: Divide the webcast in easy to digest chapters, slip in some jokes and be aware that you raise your voice and don’t talk in a monotonous, soporific way.
What and when should I follow-up on my audience after the webcast?
