Winning With Webinars in 2023

November 15, 2022

Events are always evolving. Whether through the twists and turns of pandemics, or highs and lows of the latest event tech, events are a constant rollercoaster. No surprise that a huge goal of event marketers and planners is to make sure their event rollercoaster has the longest line of people waiting to ride their experience.

One event format, however, is constantly struggling to get up those hills to provide a thrill at the summit: webinars. They’re a necessity for just about every business, yet hosts and attendees alike find them to be a bit of a slog compared to other types of events they can participate in.

To help your business webinars into the new year, Hubilo gathered creative webinar ideas to get your efforts and your attendees to the top of that rollercoaster. Let’s dive into a few below. 

The brawn of brainstorming 

Everyone loves to share what they know when given the opportunity. You see it happen in chat sidebars and hands raised to come onto camera when attendees are itching to drop their knowledge to the entire audience.

One way to channel that energy is to host a brainstorming webinar. Now, instead of a one-way firehose of information you’re presenting to an audience, your attendees’ ideas become the content. Whether you use a mindmap tool like Miro (where everyone can collaboratively add and move around ideas to a collective theme) or breakout rooms to allow attendees to join smaller focus groups for a set time to hack a problem, the energy literally lifts the webinar into new heights and creates core memories for your audience. 

The unexpected is underused 

We’re all super familiar with the typical webinar agenda: introduction by a talking head, share presentation slides to the screen, talk/click through each slide, open it up for questions at the end. Your result is a very produced, yet very formulaic, business webinar.

Considering your audience likely ingests shows and social media, try to replicate that experience. Kick off the webinar with a person walking and talking from their phone. Add a little low, fun music in the background. Plot in some casual get-to-know-you questions and polls. Refer to something that’s trending or in pop culture (though avoid anything too polarizing). 

These are just a couple of ideas for your webinars, and there’s more where those came from in Hubilo’s blog
