Enough promotion: 

  • Have you ever attended any event randomly? Or Have you been present on any webinar blindly? Obviously not. Similarly, you have to invite people. If people should be aware of happening webinars, then you must have promoted your webinar in advance. You can start as early as about 3-4 weeks prior to your webinar date. But, take care that you do not take a longer promotion period. You have to spread across various social media, emails, SMS and banners or CTAs on web pages. Till the date of the webinar, you can send various reminders to interested audiences with different related information the webinar to generate excitement in attendees and increase the number of attendees. You can allow your focused audience to add directly into their Google Calendar to manage time and get reminders of the webinar.
