How Conducting Webinars using R-HUB Web Conferencing Solutions Helps your B2B Business Grow

March 18th, 2015

build_trust

Webinars can be a highly effective tool for business-to-business marketing. Previously, the only way that a B2B business could deliver a message to large audience was to hold a conference or seminar, a method that required travel expenses as well as attendees to juggle their schedules. Today, technological advances have made it possible to replace such old school methods with web-based seminars or webinars.

With these modern tools, it is possible to deliver the exact same message without participants needing to spend money on expensive travel or take time from their busy schedules in order to travel to a central location. A highly versatile tool, webinars are now being used to achieve a variety of different business goals. As a result, webinars have become one of the best tools available for B2B marketing. Below are just a few of the ways in which webinars can be used for B2B marketing purposes:

Developing Business Contacts
If you are attempting to break into a new industry, webinars can be used to introduce your business while building your brand name and connecting in a more interactive manner with attendees. By providing the audience with the ability to interact with the speaker, business becomes more personal. The strong connection also helps to build credibility.

Product Promotions
Webinars provide the ideal platform for promoting and selling new products. Using webinars, speakers are able to show off what makes their product unique and stand out from the competition through live demos, video clips, and photographs. The ability to provide product demos can be particularly beneficial when your service or product is complex in nature and is best explained or demonstrated live. Decision makers will also be able to benefit from the ability to receive live resources and answers to any lingering questions. After the webinar is concluded, guests can be directed easily to a sales page to close the deal.

Training
In the past, when you needed to provide training to new customers, it often meant sending a sales rep out into the field. With webinars, you can deliver training in a cost-effective, interactive, and convenient manner to provide new customers with the training they need in order to be successful with your service or product.

Lower Expenses
Holding seminars and conferences can take a huge bite out of your business’s budget. By hosting a webinar, you can attain the same benefits at just a fraction of the cost. The money that you would have spent on travel arrangements as well as renting facilities and the myriad of other expenses associated with hosting a conference can instead be reinvested into other areas of your business.

Along with the benefits listed above, webinars can also assist your business in growing a global presence, capturing more sales leads, and maintaining better relationships with clients. As a result, you can leverage the opportunity to develop new sources of revenues.

Breadth and Depth of Deploying Real-Time Collaboration Tools

January 22nd, 2015

Over the past several years, real-time collaboration tools have matured to the point that the value of such tools has become clearly obvious. In fact, as real-time collaboration tools become easier to use and more oriented toward multimedia and mobile, practically everyone in business can benefit from these tools.

The Benefits of Real-Time Collaboration Tools

Perhaps the biggest benefit offered by real-time collaboration tools is increased productivity. It is now possible to communicate more succinctly and quickly with customers, coworkers, service providers, partners and anyone else with whom you need to communicate regularly using real-time collaboration tools.Along with helping to save time, collaboration tools also help to reduce expenses. Regardless of industry, in every business each employee has associated with him or her a cost of necessary tools that must be provided in order to allow that employee be as productive as possible. Such tools might include a computer, desk, telephone, etc. Companies are increasingly finding that real-time collaboration tools are now a necessity that must be added to the list. Even so, rather than increasing the cost burden of outfitting a new employee, real-time collaboration tools offer a cost-effective solution.

The benefits offered by such tools will naturally vary significantly within a department. Furthermore, the type of tool utilized might also vary among specific departments. In order to manage this environment, many companies will perform ROI estimates to justify both where and when such tools should be deployed. This type of broad-swipe approach, by its very nature, will deny tools to many employees who would be able to ultimately benefit from them. The constraints that such analyses are coping with include cost, multiple vendors for IT support and disparate vendors.

The best practice solution is an approach that allows for easy breadth and depth deployment, such as R-HUB TurboMeeting. With TurboMeetings 6-in-1 approach, every department in a typical business has a tool that can be leveraged for greater productivity. From Webinars to Meeting software to Remote Support and Remote Access, there is a capability for every need.

No Limitations on Usage

One of the most common cost-related problems that many organizations encounter when choosing a real-time collaboration tools is the limitations placed on the number of users. Consequently, the process of deploying such tools in an organization can become very expensive very fast. TurboMeeting’s floating licenses make it essentially free to deploy as deep as you would like in an organization. When the company receives a ROI with just the power users alone, additional return can be gained by providing access to more casual users. There is absolutely no cost for the floating license aspect.

Industry experts continue to point to 2015 as the year of integration. Real-time collaboration tools serve as the lynchpin for such integration. As such tools become increasingly integrated into business processes; employees in all departments are afforded a single place where they can accomplish their work.

How To Use Webinars To Promote Your Business And Increase Sales

January 15th, 2015

Webinar is a video conference in which participants can directly monitor the lectures or workshops. Just like participants who are in a room for a lecture, anyone can be an equal participant in any discussion by asking questions to the lecturer and receive an answer in real time. Almost everyone is aware of the meaning of a seminar or presentation. There is a lecturer on one side and other participants who listen and discuss with the lecturer on the other side. Now imagine a situation where you’re sitting in your home, office or even a coffee shop and participate in a seminar that actually takes place hundreds of miles away in which few hundred people from all over the world listen and can ask a question if they want. Webinars have become quite popular in the past few years and almost every educational organization has webinars in their offer.

Due to the large number of free webinars, each of us with the help of a personal computer has the opportunity to attend a particular webinar. Webinar is a shorter, simpler and more economical form of training than full-day group training at a particular physical location. Learning through webinars has many advantages especially in times of the global financial crisis which led to a severe reduction in the education budget. But, webinars can be useful for business too. Now let’s see how business owners can use webinars to promote their business and eventually increase sales.

One of the easiest ways to use webinars in order to improve your business is to organize a free webinar. The main advantage of free webinars for business owners is the fact that they can get information about the attendees. In this way you can build a list of potential clients, because leaving an email is a must for those who want to attend a webinar. You will also get the chance to increase the awareness of your brand.

By positioning yourself as an authority in the field where you work (where you are offering products or services) you will promote your brand and improve your position. If the topic is interesting you can expect hundreds and sometimes even thousands of participants. Don’t be disappointed if the first webinar didn’t end as you wanted and focus on the mistakes and the good points you’ve made. It is a good idea to record the webinar and watch it in order to improve your presentation skills. Finally, hosting a free webinar can increase your sales and that’s what matters the most. There are many people who have confirmed that they have significantly increased their sales after hosting few successful webinars. If you are able to host a webinar like that you can use this tool as a lead generator source.

So, the main point is that webinars work and they provide real business value. In case you didn’t host one then it is definitely the right time to do it.
