How many times have you heard, “I could never host a webinar, it’s too complicated!” or “hosting a webinar will take too much of my time!” In this week’s production tips blog we’ll be debunking some of the myths about hosting webinars.

Webinars Require Expensive Equipment – FALSE

This is probably the most erroneous assumption about webinars. Webinars simply require a computer or mobile device (laptop, desktop, iOS, Android, PC, MAC, it doesn’t matter!) as well as, a telephone, or a microphone and speakers – and that’s it! Most of these items people already use on a daily basis.

To Host a Webinar, You Need to be Technically Savvy – FALSE

This brings us to the next webinar myth, only tech savvy individuals can take part in hosting a live webinar. This is completely false! Here at Xtalks, we handle all the technical details you’d need to consider when hosting a webinar – all you have to do is show up and click a few buttons. We make sure that the live webinar will be flawless by going through a web test and pre-webinar session outlining all the technical procedures. We also have procedures in place in case an unexpected issue arises.

Webinars Are Boring – FALSE

One of the most common misconceptions surrounding webinars are that they are boring, but, they don’t have to be! A webinar can employ many interactive elements, such as audience polling, interactive and real time Q&A sessions, webcams, downloadable handouts, and engaging slide decks and much more. Webinars have come a long way from just being boring online presentations.

A good webinar can capture an audience member’s attention for 60 minutes – that’s why it’s no surprise that 60 percent of marketers are using webinars.

Webinars Involve Too Much Preparation and Planning – FALSE

Another fallacy about webinars is they involve hours and days of preparation and planning. While this is definitely true for a self-hosted webinar, at Xtalks, all you need is a few minutes for a web test and a little over an hour for the live webinar. At Xtalks, we take care of all the preparation and planning, ensuring a smooth and seamless webinar, as well as, ensuring you are presenting to a large, qualified audience. myths

So now that we’ve debunked some of the most common webinar myths in the industry, let us know in the comments webinar myths you’ve heard before – and we’ll tell you why they’re not true!
