Web conferencing is a practical method for saving on travel costs and beefing up meeting frequency. Because all a participant needs is a computer, Internet access and a telephone, remote-meetings have become an increasingly popular way to connect with clients. Without the face-to-face element of a presentation, however, how do you ensure that your Web conference is both memorable and interactive?
“The key to making any meeting memorable is to ensures that all participants actively take part in the meeting. The features of today’s best Web conferencing systems let users do almost everything you would want to do in a face-to-face meeting – just virtually,” says Tony Terranova, vice president of marketing and sales training for Genesys Conferencing (www.genesys.com), a provider of integrated Web, voice and video-conferencing services based in Highlands Ranch, CO. Terranova offers a few sensible guidelines to make your next Web conference engaging for your audience.
