    Wealthy Author Podcast ep 033: 3 Keys to Creating Better Webinars

    Wealthy Author Podcast ep 033: 3 Keys to Creating Better Webinars

    A lot of people hate sales. I used to be one of them. I was uncomfortable talking to people. In the mid-2000's I learned how to be a transaction engineer. My mentors taught me to be so confident in my ability to help people get solutions to their problems that all I had to do was listen to them talk. I used that skill to walk into people's homes with blank real estate contracts and walk out of them with signed contracts. Sales aren't so much about overcoming a bunch of objections. When you learn how to handle those objections upfront, closing a sale is about problem-solving.

    That means you must learn how to listen. Then, craft a presentation based on all of the feedback you've received. That's the simplified version. And, I sound kinda arrogant. Sadly... I was. But, I've learned my lesson. Actually, I've learned three major lessons from the two webinars I've created. Today, I'm gonna give you the goods.



    In 2018, I wrote my first webinar

    - used the Perfect Webinar Script

    - recorded it week after week

    - made more sales at in-person events

    Had to do something different the next time

    - still running the first webinar

    - never drove traffic

    - set it and forgot it



    3 thing I changed moving forward with this webinar

    1. More attendees

    - livestream on FaceBook (Dekesha Williams)

    - part of email series in a book funnel and sales funnel (Taki Moore)

    - offer on sales presentations



    2. More practice

    - 8-minute presentation on Brain Prompts (Jaime Cross)

    - whiteboard session for 45 minutes (Dan Henry)

    - create a better offer aka "deal" 75 minutes (Dave Dee)

    *made the right offer (Pia Silva)



    3. More engagement

    - set expectation from the beginning (Russell Brunson)

    - ask & wait (Trevor Otts)

    - acknowledge & respond (Ty Cohen)

    * increases your enthusiasm



    Announce everywhere, get better, and be engaged. These are about marketing and sales. The message is clear. It's not about presenting the message persuasively.
