Webinar Best Practices

Planning a virtual event is much like organizing a traditional event—there are many details to consider, all of which are important. When approaching event planning, it is best to break the processes into smaller, more manageable components.

As part of Onstream’s commitment to service and quality, we’ve developed this Quickstart guide to help you plan and execute your event as successfully as possible.

Start by reading the Strategy section, which helps you define your target audience, topic and registration expectations. Second, read the Registration Quickstart to learn the optimal way to set up online registration. Third, check out the Marketing section to learn how to attract participants.

Next, review our Prepping Speakers guide to understanding how to find and organize your speakers. Our Confirmations Quickstart emphasizes the importance of keeping your registrants informed of your event details, to maximize attendance.

Read our Logistics and Contingency Plans guide for a step-by-step tutorial in how to make sure your event runs as smoothly as possible. Our Event Day schedule gives you a minute-by-minute plan to run your event without a hitch.

Don’t underestimate the importance of followup after your event – with both attendees and speakers. Read the Followup guide to see how good communication goes a long way toward helping you achieve your strategic goals.
