Whether you call them Web seminars, Webinars, or Webcasts, American Management Association has produced dozens of online events which have been attended by thousands of business executives.

While Webcasts are a cost-effective way of generating leads and building relationships, they’re actually difficult to do well. The truth is that they have their own quirks and require a lot of preparation.

In this FREE Webcast, the AMA New Media team will explain the specific steps we take to create, polish, and deliver our Web programs.

What You Will Learn

In this session, you’ll hear some of the rules of thumb AMA has developed over the years to create and deliver Web programs, including:
  • How to define outcomes that will guide the program development process
  • Steps involved in event creation, delivery, and follow-up
  • Critical components required to create an engaging Webcast experience
  • Ways to build your audience
  • A step-by-step pre-production checklist 
  • What it takes to “run the show” 
  • Key post-production practices

This Webcast is designed to help everyone involved in planning, managing, or presenting Web events. So if you are currently developing web programs for your business or are considering getting started with them as a new communications medium, this is one program you’ll want to attend!
