Webinars are popular in all niches these days, but they are extremely popular in the online marketing niche. In the online marketing world, there are two to three free webinars every day and night of the week. Webinars are web-based seminars where the participants listen to the audio through a telephone, computer or Skype. They view the presentation via a web browser on their phone, computer or tablet. You may be thinking that doing anything free is a waste of time; however, that could not be further from the truth. There are many benefits for hosting free webinars. The top three benefits are turning your webinar into a paid course, selling products and selling affiliate products.
Free Webinar Benefit #1 – Turn Webinar into Paid Course
Many marketers use webinars to generate revenue. They record the webinar and copy it to DVDs. The audio is copied to CDs. The audio is also transcribed and turned into a PDF report. Not only can the DVDs and CDs be sold as physical products, but the audio and video can be turned into downloadable electronic products.
If you want to add more value to your free webinars, you can add two or three premium topics that were not included in the webinar. This will give your potential customers more incentive to purchase your product.
Free Webinar Benefit #2 – Sell Your Products
Hosting a free webinar that is related to your products is a great way to sell more of your products. This strategy increases the number of products that you sell. Many savvy marketers offer their webinars for free because they know they can promote and sell a variety of their products. You can use this tactic to sell your books, e-books, courses, software, seminars, services and much more. The additional product sales from the webinar will more than pay for the expenses incurred in hosting the webinar.
Free Webinar Benefit #3 – Sell Affiliate Products
Even if you do not have your own products, you can still earn money from your affiliate products on a webinar. During the webinar you give away useful content. You can mention one or two affiliate products that can be used as references or manuals. Make sure the products that you are promoting are related to the topic of your webinar. If your potential customers found your webinar useful, they will be more likely to buy. Also if your webinar shows them what to do but the product you are selling shows them how, then they are also more likely to buy.
So as you can see it can be very profitable to host your own free webinars. There are many ways to profit from these webinars if they offer great information. There are many services that you can use to host your webinar. Most of them have a monthly cost, but traditionally offer you 30 days free. If you get started right away, this should be more than enough time for you to earn money to pay for the service once your 30 days are up.
