SAN FRANCISCO, July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ON24, the world's leading webinar marketing platform for demand generation, lead qualification and customer engagement, today announced "A Guide to More Effective Demand Generation Webinars," a live Webinar Academy event designed to provide tips and best practices for achieving lead generation and content marketing goals with business webinars.
Scheduled for Tuesday, July 28, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET, this free, half-day virtual conference is being offered through the Webinar Academy, the one-stop resource for content focused on creating and delivering successful webinars.
Designed for producers and presenters of marketing webinars, this best practices showcase will demonstrate how webinars can be effective tools to meet the wide-ranging objectives associated with demand generation in companies large and small. From content marketing to building awareness and lead generation that drives the sales funnel, webinars can really "move the needle" – but only if companies possess a clear set of objectives.
Keynote speaker Ken Molay, president of Webinar Success, will present best practices designed to help companies meet their objectives by creating effective webinars for various marketing purposes. Molay will also explain the varying tactics associated with different kinds of webinars, such as content marketing versus lead generation. This ON24 event will take a "deep dive" into actionable tactics, and audience members will learn:
Best practices for encouraging registration and attendance
How to engage prospects before and after a webinar
Ways to structure content for maximum impact
How to elicit desired responses from target audiences

He added that the featured content will provide best practices not only for planning world-class webinars for any demand generation scenario but will also provide actionable strategies that will show webinar producers how to go out and make it happen.
