The Big Book of Webinar Stats: LogMeIn, the makers of GoToWebinar Analysed 250,000 Webinars to Help You Make Yours Better
InsideSales conducted a survey on the effective methods for lead generation in which 73% of sales leaders and B2B marketers agreed that webinars are a great way to generate successful leads.
GoToWebinar also found the B2B professionals rank webinars among the top three content types that they find most engaging and most frequently consumed.
Webinars have become a strong marketing must-have thanks to their proven ability year after year to boost businesses’ marketing, sales, training, and customer engagement efforts.
The challenge, though, is that webinars take a bit more time and effort to pull off than publishing a blog post or sending an email.
GoToWebinar analysed more than 250,000 webinars to uncover insights and best practices that can help you get the most bang for your webinar buck.
All of these takeaways have been packed into GoToWebinar’s new Big Book of Webinar Stats, to give businesses an insight to what works and what doesn’t in a webinar.
Here are some insights that can be found in the report:
57% of webinar registrations come from email
GoToWebinar has discovered that the most effective channel to promote your webinar is through email. In fact, webinar signups from emails beat the next most effective promotional channel, which is social media by an almost four-to-one margin.
Webinar attendees will give nearly an hour of their time
GoToWebinar found that the average audience viewing time for a webinar is 57 minutes! This finding is particularly impressive given that the average professional will not spend as much time engaging with other types of marketing content.
The report adds that webinars are far more effective in keeping prospects and customers engaged, even when compared to captivating blog or social media posts that hold can only hold an audiences’ attention for several minutes.
More than half of signups happen during the week of the event
The report found that 59% of attendees register in the week leading up to the event, and 17% of those register on the day of the webinar.
This valuable finding indicates that it is important to schedule reminders and blast “last chance” promotional messages to prospects right up until game day.
