It is been a common practice for speakers on webinars to read the script to the audience. They do not know that this practice often leads the audience to lose their interest with the webinar. and sometimes it is the main cause of the webinar’s downfall. It is therefore important for speakers to do their webinar script with less reading. This enhances the webinars to the audience and will help keep them interested. Here are some tips in which you can lessen your reading of your webinar script.
Look at your monitor
When you read your script, there is always a tendency that you might read the script fast which might result to a flat cadence that most of the audience would catch. Even though they cannot see the presenter, this will still give them an impression that the presenter is plainly reading the material to them. To avoid this, you can try to face the monitor as you say your point. Imagine that you are facing real people. In this way, you could interact with them and you would avoid speaking fast. Just glance at your script once in a while especially if you are checking your notes.
Practice your presentation
Its plainly difficult to speak on a live audience since most people, even the expert speakers, experience nervousness when it comes to this kind of activity. Due to this reason, many speakers just make notes and do not practice how they will present their material which is not good especially if audiences would ask something regarding the subject matter. Its better that you practice your presentation online with a live audience before the actual webinar. In this way, you can better prepare your speech and your way of reasoning since you will know your material better.
Write it down in bullet form
Write down what you want to say but not word for word. Only write down points of what you are going to say in bullet form. In this way, you let your natural manner of presenting lead you as you present the material to the audience. You can place your notes in the Notes pages of your power point so that you will be guided as you move along the slides.
The audience of any webinar often cares for the quality of the information presented not with the simple errors that are often committed by presenters. Always remember that the audience are forgiving in any simple errors as long as you sound confident and comfortable.
These are simple tips that will help you lessen your reading of your webinar script. Try to apply them in order to make a good and worthwhile webinar for you and the audience.
