Whether it is a seminar, a product release, or any other type of corporate event, it seems that the coronavirus is going to be forcing everything to become remote for the foreseeable future. What does this mean for your business? You rapidly need to learn how to produce great events online.

Here are a few tips to help you get started.

  • Find the right platform – From Teams to Zoom, there are tons of webinar platforms available. You need to determine what your event requires. This means looking at everything from product security features to how many people can be connected at the same time.
  • Test everything – If you are going to be hosting a live event, you need to check connection speeds and screen shares repeatedly to ensure things run smoothly when it is finally time for the event to occur. Of course, you also need to plan ahead for issues because no matter how many times you test, you never know what will happen during a live event.
  • Promote it – Just like an in-person event, you need to promote your online event so that people attend. Social media is one of the best places to spread the word rapidly.

The Right Entertainment for Your Event

Live entertainment can be tricky for an online event. One good option is to have your entertainers prerecord. You can either use this as your primary entertainment or as a backup in case something goes wrong with the live performance.
