Webinars 101: Get a Virtual Assistant to Run Tech Support

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 and not lose track like…

Your Webinar Slidedeck can Make or Break Your Webinar!

By Jennie Lyon / January 15, 2019

What draws our eyes to beauty? When we see a lovely painting, or a sunset, or a stunning view, why do we instinctively think, “Wow, that’s beautiful?” Here is the thing: aesthetics matter, even in places that you wouldn’t expect. For example, when you are reading a big block of text (like this blog), you probably don’t think of it as “visual,” but it is. There is the choice of font, the width of the spaces between words, the length of paragraphs. Attractive visual choices make the process of reading much more enjoyable, even when the reader doesn’t quite realize…

Got Stage Fright? How to Effectively Host a Webinar

By Jennie Lyon / January 8, 2019

There’s a great Jerry Seinfeld comedy bit that perfectly sums up how some people feel about public speaking. “According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” In my experience working with clients, I’m afraid that I have to agree. Speaking in front of people is a fear born right out of “show and tell,” back when they were a kid. Getting up in…

Be Seen as An Expert in Your Field with Webinars

By Jennie Lyon / January 3, 2019

Do you want to know one of the biggest problems for new small business owners? Being seen as an expert in their field. The longer that you’re in business, the more credibility you build.

And when you want to hire someone for…
