GigOS is the integration between eSpeakers EventCX and SpeakerFlow CRM.

We’ve been cooking up something BIG with the team over at SpeakerFlow. And after over a year of development, we’re excited to introduce GigOS.

It combines everything you need to run your speaking business in one place: custom CRM for speakers, EventCX specialized calendaring and automation platform, marketing exposure through the eSpeakers directory network, access to eSpeakers Lead Center, and 40+ other tools to run your business end-to-end. And they’re all integrated!

If you’re a professional who presents to or teaches remote audiences over a live video meeting tool like Zoom or GoToMeeting, this course is for you.

Nothing kills a presenter’s credibility, frustrates attendees, and buries the message faster than a presenter who is hard to see, hard to hear, or who is struggling with basic technology.

This course will help you avoid all of those issues. If you implement the practical guidance in this course, your content and presentation skills will be able to shine through the screen and impact everyone in your virtual meeting. This course includes about 2 hours of materials, and then you’ll be prepared to schedule your assessment to get the Certified Virtual Presenter — or CVP — badge.

Choosing the Best Virtual Event Software

Events have quickly taken themselves online as 2020 has brought on serious limitations when it comes to in-person gatherings. We all had to make these adjustments with little warning, which means that a lot of us went for the first virtual event software we could find.

Now that we’re a bit more settled in and better adjusted to this virtual world, we can take the time to evaluate software choices. Choosing the best virtual event software is a common problem many event planners have today.

5 Virtual Event Best Practices You Can’t Miss

We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of doing things this year. And for many of us, that includes how we run events! Today, more events are taking place virtually than ever before. That’s why we knew it was time to share our virtual event best practices with you today!

5 Virtual Event Best Practices You Can’t Miss

It’s going to take a long time (if ever!) for events to go back to how they used to be.

So it’s a good idea to get on board with these virtual event best practices now and make the most of them! Let’s get started.

How to Grow Your Email List with Webinars and Beyond

It’s no secret sending out emails is a great way to stay in touch, deliver announcements, and keep your business top of mind for customers. At the same time, it can be hard to grow your email list and get the subscribers you need.

Why you want to grow your email list

Email subscribers consist of a fantastic audience as they are a group of individuals who have interacted with your brand in some way shape or form. They are familiar with your brand and are more likely to engage with your email messaging over a cold audience.

Growing this list of email subscribers can be difficult as users need to be aware of your emails and then be enticed to subscribe to them. One of the best ways to grow your list, however, is with the use of webinars!

The trick to gaining email subscribers from webinars is to drive traffic to your registration landing page. We’re here to explore how you can get users to your landing page and ultimately grow your list of email subscribers.

Use Your Blog to Promote

If you’re doing it correctly, your website blog will be gaining valuable traffic for your website. You can leverage this traffic by mentioning your webinar in your blog posts.

This can help to build attendance for the webinar and increase the likelihood of registrants seeing the email sign up option on your webinar landing page.

You might also post specific blog posts just about your upcoming webinar and offer multiple opportunities for newsletter sign-up. Tell viewers that they can stay up to date on future webinars by subscribing to your newsletter.

Partner with Another Company

One of the best ways to grow your email list? Partner up with another company in order to get more webinar registrants.

Partnering with a company whose brand relates to your own can help you to double your reach. By cross-promoting, both companies benefit as they gain access to each other’s audiences, and get to promote each other’s expertise.

Reuse Webinars to Grow Your Email List

Once your webinar is finished, it doesn’t mean the opportunities for using them are done!

You can repost old webinars to social media, or use them to write out new content for your website blog. This content has proven to be valuable to viewers in the past, so why not keep that valuable content available for use?

PS. You might even mention that the content was derived from a webinar in order to get sign-ups for future webinars.

Use the Power of Social Media

Social media is your opportunity to talk about your upcoming webinars and promote them for participation. You should mention the date and time of the webinar, as well as the exciting topics you’ll be discussing.

Be sure to post about the webinar multiple times leading up to the event, and tag all relevant partners in order for them to repost.

Take a look at your perfect 7 step social media marketing event strategy here.

Ask for Shares

If you have powerful connections, then this is your chance to use them to your advantage! Ask anyone who might be relevant to your industry or webinar topic to share it.

If an important person can advocate for your webinar, people will be a lot more inclined to flock towards it. Your webinar will see an increase in registrants, and your long-term relationship with those registrants will grow as they subscribe to your email newsletters.
