Online Event Management & Support
As a professional speaker who usually does their events in front of a live audience, have you ever thought about going online instead?
I have found that running an online workshop, webinar or event can be challenging.
How will you, as a speaker, coach, or consultant, deliver value to your attendees when they are not sitting in front of you?
Live video has evolved from nice-to-have to necessity when it comes to events.
The world is changing and so are our expectations. We no longer limit ourselves to one form or medium for communication–we want it all! This trend has made delivering content across different channels more important than ever before due not only because we can reach people anytime wherever they may be but also as an integral part by which brands communicate with customers on regular basis nowadays.
Livestreamed events deliver real return-on-investment, increase future ticket sales, and expand the reach of your message beyond your venue. The advance in mobile technology allows you to engage individually with anyone at your events.
Research has shown that in 2020 the most universal impact thrust onto speakers because of the pandemic was a financial one with events cancelled, empty diaries and many presenters were waiting until they could go back to in-person events which turned out to be few and far between.
And, the speakers market size is expected to reach a value of $28.37B during 2021-2025.
For those who rely on speaking events, the idea of taking them online is an idea that has been gaining momentum. However, it doesn’t come without some concerns like how to manage without
the energy or excitement or personal interaction a speaker is used to from face-to-face workshops & presentations.
Suddenly, they have found that their marketing strategy only has a single touchpoint and it is known that you need at least 12 touchpoints in this day and age, to get someone to buy from you. And when you are doing an online event, there are no faces staring back at you. You’re just staring at the camera, hoping that someone is watching.
To maintain an online presence on top of everything else that comes with running any business can be challenging.
With more speakers now doing their talks and coaches, consultant and entrepreneurs doing their webinars and presentations online, some are finding it challenging to keep up with all of the technical and audience issues that arise.
It’s finding the time to set everything up and then:
- answering the chat and
- keeping the audience entertained all at the same time.
I know that when I am doing my own workshops or training, it’s quite difficult to be able to concentrate on what I’m delivering and answer in the chat if someone has a question.
Not everyone is tech-savvy, nor are they able to multi-task. Each is challenging in its own way.
Perhaps you find yourself amongst that group of people.
In July 2020, I worked with a speaker’s agency from Adelaide that wanted to organise an online event to inform those in the event industry how venues and other organisations had been impacted by COVID and what the industry planned to do moving forward. We only had 5 weeks to get the event up and going and my part in the process was making short promotional videos that helped the event attract 456 leads and registrations in under 3 weeks.
Presentation success isn’t one size fits everybody thing, so whether it’s your first time or if it’s something you do every single day, today, I want to share with you three reasons why Livestreaming is the future of conferences and events and why you need an Online Event Manager.
Imagine running into the everyday problems of running an online event like having someone:
✅ Set up your event online
✅ Monitor your live stream and take care of any technical issues that may arise
✅ Host or MC your event by introducing your guests or get the online audience ready for you
✅ Monitor the back end and pass on any questions from the audience so that you aren’t continually looking in the chatbox and you can concentrate on doing your delivery.
And, something else that can be a little daunting for speakers and presenters who are used to giving their presentations in person, is having to talk to an inanimate object like the camera.
So, if you aren’t comfortable speaking to the camera, then your
online event manager can take that stress away for you by introducing your guests or generally keeping the conversation flowing.
It gives you the flexibility to do other things and more time to promote your event.
Having an online event manager can help you to focus on your market and get those conversions you are looking for from their events.
Your online presentations should NEVER be stressful and shouldn’t be overwhelming. So, getting someone to help you get the most out of the time you spend with your audience is to your advantage.
I love taking your ideas and turning them into a magnetic presentation that positions you as the thought leader in your industry.
Recently, I assisted Flavourista, a national company based in Queensland when at the last minute they were forced to hold their annual conference online. They had over 150 in attendance. As their online event manager, I supported them through the entire process of running their conference online to the delight of their founder, Kylie Burnett.
