Most of you have probably attended or listened to a teleseminar or webinar. Last evening while listening to another session of the online Book Marketing conference, I realized that this is something I could do. It sounds and feels intimidating but it is doable. It focused on using Instant Teleseminar. There are probably other website who offer the same type of services. This post isn’t necessarily a recommendation or testimonial on their behalf, I just found it very interesting and seems user friendly. They offer a 21-day trial period for $1.00 and then have several choices of packages depending on how many people would be calling in or listening in to your webinar. There is a monthly charge after the trial period ends.
You can use power point slides and then record commentary to go with it. They refer you to transcription services if you want a copy of the seminar in a document for clients later. You can set up a practice interview call with a colleague or fellow writer, and then embed the video or audio on your blog or website. The tool bar seems pretty user friendly. I’m seriously thinking about doing one with the free trial to see how it works and what the results are. Since webinars are becoming more popular and people are using them to teach classes on writing or hold book discussions, I think it is something to add to our tool box. You set it up and record it once and then can re-use it for as long as you want. Short term time investment for long term results. Win-win for everyone.
