Planning A Meeting? Check Out Webinar Platform Solutions For Your Business Needs

First, let’s start with the question, what is a webinar?

Simply put, a webinar is a conference/ meeting/seminar carried out over the internet. A webinar is the very key when building a brand or business. It enables you engage with your audience and get feedbacks anywhere and anytime. Isn’t that cool?

ClickMeeting is an onsite platform to bridge the gap between you and your clients or prospects. You don’t have to worry about hosting a traditional meeting. It saves you a lot of time and money if you are running a small business or a large company, and you have everything you need. With ClickMeeting, your webinar can be done at the comfort of your home and it is not expensive as against the belief of most people.

There are various ways to run a webinar. For example, other webinar providers install a software on your system and this comes with a lot of problems and issues. But since Clickmeeting is an Onsite platform, this makes it very convenient for you to use and with its highly functional website which enables you to navigate, manage your audience and also access amazing features and flexibility.

The website is also integrated with quite a number of web apps ranging from Flickr, Slack, YouTube, SalesForce, Google Calendar, Office 365, and lots more which makes what you can do it with it endless whether you want to use it for sales, training, marketing, or education.

Getting Started

For a starter, using a webinar might be a little bit confusing. ClickMeeting is very easy to use and you get a tour, instructions and steps all the way.

From the main dashboard, you can access the navigation menu at the top where the schedule link is located and also get to access the green arrows that point areas of interests. You can schedule your events which make it a very good tool for organizing the meeting. You can also customize your interface whereby you can change the theme color of your webinar, skin and also add your company’s logo.

Inviting Your Audience

You can invite your audience by sending a branded and customized email, then ask them to fill a form to join the meeting or just send them a direct link. The former is preferable when you need the details of your audience while the latter is most preferred if you are engaging a large number of audience and you do not necessarily need their information.

        8 Replacements for Google Notebook

        8 Replacements for Google Notebook

        Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

        1. Zoho Notebook
          If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
        2. Evernote
          The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
        3. Net Notes
          If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
        4. i-Lighter
          You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
        5. Clipmarks
          For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
        6. UberNote
          If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
        7. iLeonardo
          iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
        8. Zotero
          Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

        I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

        Advertising

        In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
