Tech Tuesday - Six Tools To Help You Present Online
Posted: Tue 3rd Jun 2014
Whether you're selling a product or service - artisan bread or artful designs - your business can generate sales and make new connections through delivering presentations online.
Invite an audience to watch or hear you share your expertise - or interview experts in your industry and trade. Offer the opportunity as free to attend or make a charge so the presentation itself becomes a revenue generator.
Here are six tools enabling you to get your message out and about:
This is the tool we use at Enterprise Nation to deliver online events with experts and entrepreneurs. Invite your guest (if relevant) - schedule a webinar - invite up to 1,000 attendees and click broadcast! During the webinar, attendees can pose questions and you can take polls to find out who's online and their response to particular questions.
Try it free for 30 days and then packages are available from $99 per month.
2. Powwownow Video Conferencing
With the ability to host up to 25 people and 8 on screen at once, this is the video conferencing arm of conference calling venture, Powwownow.
Take a free trial for 14 days.
Record a Hangout on Air and have it broadcast across the globe with Google! Hangouts work across all devices and are free to record.
A company that does a great job of showing how to effectively use Google Hangouts for business is Simply Business. They recognise that Hangouts are a great opportunity to quiz experts on air and share this content with existing customers and potential new ones too.
Promoted as a tool for hosting team meetings when the team is not co-located, OmniJoin comes with HD quality video and can host up to 50 people online at any one time. There's a free trial for 30 days and then price packages starting at Â£15 per month for the ability to host up to 8 attendees and Â£59 per month for the top level of up to 50 attendees.
Have up to 10 people on a free video call with Skype, which has become a staple product in most home offices.
More of a presentation tool rather than the channel through which to communicate, Prezi is used by over 35 million people to bring their presentations to life. The company has just published a list of the Top 100 Presentation Resources which is well worth a look as it links to top tips on how to build better presentations and be a proficient presenter.
With these tools in hand, you can be presenting with poise every day of the week!
