What is a webinar?

Webinars are virtual presentations where one or more speakers communicate information, usually in the form of a presentation or panel discussion, either via audio or video to an audience of registered attendees.

What is the difference between webinar and a webcast?

Surprise!  There isn’t one – they’re terms that are used interchangeably.

How is a webinar different from a virtual meeting?

Webinars are generally more structured and “owned” by the presenter whereas a virtual meeting is exactly what it sounds like – a meeting that takes place using software that allows participants to see and hear each other without physically being in the same location.

How is a webinar different from a virtual event?

This is a tricky one as the two terms are often used interchangeably. A webinar is usually a single presentation on a given topic with one or more speakers. A virtual event, in its truest sense, is a digital recreation of an in-person conference. Virtual events will usually encompass multiple “session” which may utilize webinars to share presentations. They’ll often have breakout sessions, keynotes and may even include sponsors with “booths”. Unlike a webinar which, with the right provider, is easy to set-up and execute, virtual events are usually more complex and take longer to pull off.

Do I have to run my webinar live?

This depends on your webinar software but when you use Webinar.net, the answer is “no”. You’re in control and can choose to run your webinar the way that works best for you and your presenters: live, simu-live (where you prerecord the content but broadcast it as if it were live on a specific day and time) or on-demand. And, if you want to have a live Q&A but don’t want to have to present your content on a live broadcast, we give you the option to choose a simu-live with a roll-over to live Q&A.

My speaker doesn’t want to be on camera, do they have to be?

No, you can run your webinar with webcam or just audio. It’s often a matter of personal preference and our tool allows you to go with whichever format works best for your webinar.

Is there a limit to how many people can attend my webinar?

Not when you use Webinar.net! We are completely cloud-based on AWS, so bandwidth isn’t an issue for us.  Invite as many people as you’d like – we can handle it.

What happens if I (or one of my presenters) mess up during our presentation?

If you’re on a live broadcast, first, take a deep breath and remember that no one is perfect. If you misstated something, correct yourself and then keep going. Now, with our game-changing editing software “The Lab” you can fix that gaffe before you post your event for on-demand viewing.

Help! I’ve got three speakers, and no one is available on the same date, at the same time. What can I do?

“The Lab” not only lets you edit to fix mistakes in your audio and slides; you can also now record speakers separately and edit the segments together so it appears seamless to your audience. Problem solved!
