When was the last time you attended an in-person seminar or event? I’m going to take a wild guess and say it was sometime before March 2020! Personally, I don’t much miss them because a much more powerful, targeted, and accessible tool has taken their place. A successful webinar! For years, remote seminars and events were a staple in the business world. The problem was that they were expensive and somewhat inconvenient affairs. Though potentially informative to certain people, they usually only attracted limited audiences.  Using real-time video software like Zoom or my favorite Demio, small business owners and entrepreneurs can…

JLVAS 5 Ways a Virtual Assistant Can Fill Your Webinar

Performers, speakers, politicians, and others who do public speaking always worry that, after weeks of preparation, that there will be no one in their audience.

How To use a Virtual Assistant to Launch Your Webinar

Everyone needs a helping hand, now and then. A webinar launch is no different. No matter what business you work in, you can’t do everything yourself. Sometimes, you need to bring in specialists who have experience, skills, and knowledge you don’t currently possess.  Many small business owners might want to hire an accountant/bookkeeper to take care of their finances and taxes, so they don’t need to deal with all of those numbers. If you can’t answer the phone all day, perhaps hiring a receptionist could be a good idea. And if you don’t have time to write content for your…

By Jennie Lyon / July 21, 2019

Oh, the joy of tech support… Just about everyone has had the experience of their computer dying in the middle of an important project, only to have to spend the rest of the day wrestling with tech support. Listening to hours of “Your call is important to us” hold music and low-level clueless employees whose advice basically boils down to “Turn it off and then on again.” Then, if you don’t mysteriously get disconnected, you MAYBE might get to someone who can actually help you with your problem, if you’re lucky. So imagine trying to deal with tech support while…

3 Steps to a Winning Webinar Slide Deck!

By Jennie Lyon / July 16, 2019

Do you remember sitting in school as a kid, vaguely staring at the walls as your teacher droned on and on about geography, history, or math… You were kind of paying attention. Maybe taking a note every now and then, but the sad reality was that your attention was elsewhere. The material just wasn’t engaging you. But why? What your teacher was saying might have been interesting, but without a visually engaging element, your attention was lost. We like to think that, as adults, we have more focus. That we can keep our attention on-task. Not lose track like we…
