Webinar Description 

We've decided to take you behind the scenes of TechSoup Talks and demonstrate how our webinars are organized, what we do, and don't do to ensure a successful webinar.

This webinar is ideal for nonprofit and library staff who have decided that they would like to conduct webinars or web conference calls, but aren't sure how to get started. We walk you through the process from start to finish, spending time talking about ReadyTalk – the web conferencing tool we use to promote, register, conduct, record, and track each webinar. Shawn Cardinal from ReadyTalk will answer product-specific questions.

If you're just beginning to explore options, read these articles: 10 Steps for Planning a Successful Webinar and Tips for Conducting a Successful Webinar.
