Learning how to control your body language and what to do with your hands can make a huge difference and help you influence others during any conversation. According to the International Society for Gesture Studies (ISGS), speakers who gesture more develop more rapport and trust with their audiences. They’re seen as warm and trusting rather than stuffy and dishonest. Take some time to look at YouTube videos of speakers who are considered good.

Should You Charge for Your Webinar?

One of the things you have to consider when you want to get into hosting webinars is whether or not to charge for your events. It’s not as simple as saying yes, or no, for everyone. Before you can decide whether to charge or not to charge, you have to study the entire situation fully. Define the Goal of the Webinar When choosing whether or not to charge for webinar, it matters a great deal whether or not you are trying to collect business leads versus whether or not you want to make money from the webinar itself as your business. If you want to get more followers, friends, likes, and email subscribers so that you can market other products and or services, then you should do the event free. If you want teaching at webinars to be your main source of income, then you should charge. Determine Your Budget The technology needed to charge for a webinar sometimes is more expensive than hosting a free webinar on Google Hangouts On Air, so you’ll need to figure out if the investment in a paid webinar is worth it to meet your goals or not. There are programs that you can use that make it simple to charge – for example GoToMeeting and also a system that works with Google Hangouts On Air called Webinars OnAir.
