- In the realm of webinars, sustaining audience engagement is a paramount concern, given the diminishing attention spans. Long webinars, even on intriguing topics, often result in waning interest.
- To counter this, a segmented approach proves effective. Breaking the webinar into three distinct 15-minute segments, each featuring discussions with different individuals on diverse topics. The webinar's format plays a crucial role in audience retention.
- The "Big Shot" webinar entails bringing a prominent figure on stage, leveraging their platform for promotion, and fostering collaboration for effective post-event efforts.
- The "Competitor Battle" webinar introduces a host to mediate discussions, pose questions, and seamlessly guide the session through various topics, enhancing engagement and interest.
