Breaking out of the conference centre to expand your audience and create revenue potential.
Date and time
Thursday, 8 November 2018, 15:00 to 18:00
Webcasting is a great way of sharing up-to-date and expert content that is unique to your
association. Many associations are already finding this a practical way of reaching out to wider
national or global audiences. After all, why limit yourself to the audience in the room? Where
membership is widely disbursed, where travel time and costs are prohibitive or where a topic may
not warrant a full day, a webcast can bring your audience easily accessible, valuable education and information. And webcasting can be monetized through sponsorship or subscription, allowing your association to build a revenue stream. Our webcasting experts will guide you through the A-Z of how to launch a successful webcasting programme and there will also be an association case study illustrating the potential. If you are keen to find out more, or are already webcasting and want to monetise, this seminar will answer your questions.
Who should attend
All association employees who work in events or training who are just getting started with webcasting to their members. Those with more experience may also find the seminar a useful update particularly if they are considering taking steps to monetize an existing webcasting service.
