Webinars have emerged as a key tool in content marketing

Engaging one-on-one with current and future customers in real-time can be highly beneficial to the business. Webinar marketing is a kind of lead magnet, which makes it possible to do this in an inexpensive and cost-saving manner. It lets the business connect with an interested audience, to interact with them personally in the virtual platform.

The webinar dashboard provides a summary of the webinars conducted over the selected time period. This dashboard captures overall details about the webinar, engagement data and the impact of the webinar on business. It helps the business in pursuing the below goals:

  • Lead Generation

  • Customer Engagement

  • Revenue Impact of the webinars

  • Assess the success of the webinar

Assess the success of the business Did the attendees enjoy the webinar? Feedback

  • Attendees of the webinar are the warmest leads for the sales team. Usually, the contact information of all those who registered for the webinar is recorded for retargeting. If the registration count is low, it would mean that the webinar promotions were not successful in attracting the audience. If the registrant to attendee ratio is low, it will indicate that the company needs to revisit the post-registration processes.

  • The engagement metrics tell the business more about the attendees who interacted with the webinar content. The preferences of the attendees, the features they liked or disliked about the products, the way they perceive the brand can all be understood based on the engagement metrics. Insights from this can be used by the sales and marketing teams for product development, launch and customer segmentation.

  • The summary table compares the impact of various webinars. Comparing the Total Spend with Cost per Lead and Sales gives the effect of webinars on revenue.

  • The most convenient metric to judge the success of a webinar is the attendee feedback. This can be used as input for planning the upcoming webinars.
