When I first heard the word “Automated Webinar” and realized that this meant people were signing up for a webinar only to watch a prerecorded presentation. I thought, “Well that's just wrong.” It seemed dishonest. Then I thought about the webinars I have held for my membership sites. I get a few people signing up, but I always get requests for doing them in another time because a podcast reaches a global audience. I would start my webinars at 9 PM EST so the west coast (assuming they weren't stuck in traffic) could attend. This is the model where you trade your time for money, and in the end you were cutting out people who were not on your time frame. What about the people who signed up and couldn't make the webinar? What did they do? You guess it. They ended up watching the taped version of the presentation. With this in mind I don't think Automated Webinars are wrong. I can see where people may be tempted to mislead people, but I can see where this will free up someone while your potential customer watches and interacts with a recorded plugin.
Stealth Seminar had a $97 setup fee and was $69 a month.
Presentation Domination is $147 a month
Evergreen Business Machine is $497
Schedule your webinar whenever you want. This allows people on different time schedule to attend. You can set how many days in advance that they can schedule. You can also let people sign and watch immediately.
You can have items show up in the middle of your webinar (a pdf to download, etc). You can also give away something for anyoen who tells a friend about the webinar.
There is a scarcity feature which adds a “count down timer” to (for example) a special price. This is very “Home Shopping Network.”
You have a live chat, but the questions are sent to you via email.
You have a registration widget that can be placed on any website.
The bottom line is there are tons of videos to walk you through the software and you can have your first automated webinar in minutes.
My install had a minor glitch, and the best part is the Easy Webinar people stepped up to the plate and got me up and running.
