  • Running webinars also helps establish your brand. Great webinar content will place you as a reliable industry expert, and partnering with other experts in your niche will help cement trust while also widening your audience.
  • Webinars convert more highly than other marketing methods, so they are a great way to grow your contact list.
  • You can use webinars to partner or work with other industry experts and influencers, which will help you expand your network and make it easier to become a “known” face in your niche.
  • Lastly, a webinar recording can be used to create more content. For example, you can use snippets of the recording across your social channels or offer the full webinar recording as bonus content to new students.
