If you are currently hosting teleseminars or if you are thinking about getting started with it, I have a recommendation for you.
I have been using IntstantTeleseminar for the last couple of months and I wanted to wait to make any recommendation until after I had some experience with it. Now I have and I can honestly say, I love it.
In one system, for one monthly fee, InstantTeleseminar provides bridge lines, instant online webcasting, automatic call recording, mp3 file download, online interaction so listeners can ask questions before and during the event, and templates for your web pages.
I’m always looking for tools to make my business easier, even if it costs a bit of money. In the end, the investment can be worth all the time saved.
In the last two weeks, we have put the system to a true test, hosting two teleseminars with 350 and 400+ participants. The system worked like a charm.
You can see the service and what it does at InstantTeleseminar.com.
Plus you can get a 21-day trial for only $1. That’s a great deal if you’re ready to host a teleseminar.
The navigation panel is pretty self-explanatory and there is a quick start guide with video tutorials if you are unsure what to do.
It’s easy to get started with a new event…click the big yellow button that says Add New Event.
You can use the templates provided (they’re OK, but not terribly inspiring) or design your own page. In the interest of time, I usually use one of their templates. You also have the option of adding links and buttons to the promo, event and replay pages that can direct people to your offers and product. Again, I used this with great success this past week.
I love the 200 line conferece bridge included with the service – you can use it anytime, 24/7, 365 days a year. Until now I’ve been using unreliable free conference lines which are usually limited to 99 callers. And you can add additional bridge lines to your account and choose the one you want to use for a specific event. I do that when I want to make sure that a paid class has a different number from a free class.
The instant online broadcasting feature (webcasting) with 2,000 person capacity is something you cannot find anywhere else at this price. So 200 people can call in on the phone, and 2,000 people can listen over the web! This is a great benefit if you have a lot of people from outside of U.S. participate in your events. No more long-distance phone calls or limits on your participants. During our recent classes, over 100 people were listening online. In the moderator’s panel, you can see how many are listening to the webcast at any moment.
If you get a lot of people on your calls, then you know that having a live Q&A session can be very noisy and chaotic with bad lines and people talking over each other. With Instant Teleseminar there is a chat feature which lets your participants submit their questions online. You get a clear line for your recording. And as the moderator, you can see what questions are coming in and choose to approve or decline them. Again, we got dozens of questions in this format and it worked beautifully.
