JLVAS New Blog Images-9 Stages of Webinar

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 New Blog Images-Webinars

Have you ever attended a live webinar? I’m guessing you have, they are everywhere! Personally, I’m a huge fan! While I never really enjoyed traveling to attend in-person seminars because of expensive travel, hotels, and food, webinars are a completely different story. All you need to pay for a webinar is the cost of “entry.” You can safely stay comfy at home and learn everything you’d get from an in-person seminar for a fraction of the cost and time investment.  If you’re a small business owner, I’m sure that the idea of putting on your own webinar has occurred to…

8 ways to attract your audience with a webinar + 2 Free Workbooks

Recently, I’ve been creating a lot of different types of content that allow me to get closer to my audience. I don’t just want you to read my words, but also hear my voice. I believe that this will create a stronger connection with you! (Is it working?) To get started, I’ve obviously picked podcasting. It’s a fantastic way to get your name and content out there, but it’s also entirely audio, with no visuals. Excellent if your audience is going out for a walk or running errands, but less so if you need to communicate complex ideas that require…

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.

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…
