One of the easiest methods of building rapport with your prospects and clients is to conduct Teleseminars and Webinars. The technology is finally out there and the cost has become reasonable.

The challenge is finding a resource that truly services your purpose and your audience. You might have local U.S. based followers and the resources are more plentiful.

But this last month I have been working on a project that involves people from all over the world. I didn’t know some countries ban Skype and the cost of calling in to a U.S. based number can be $30-$100 US for a 30 minute call. That will eliminate the majority of your potential participants.

$9.95/month – I have been using this service about three years and have always had good quality and great service from the site. The only challenge is they do not have phone or chat access if you are having challenges. Their help FAQ is not as easy to follow as some websites but once you figure it out, it is a well done program.

Basic $47 a month for Unlimited Events with 20 phone lines and 100 Web Attendees up to $197 a month with Unlimited Events, 500 phone lines, 3000 Web Attendees and Local dial-in US, Canada, UK and Australia. They offer a $1 21 day Trial offer as well Web Conferencing

Free – I used this for the first time last week and it was fairly successful. The challenge was no one could access the call in line and one of the attendees tried calling me on Skype after I started and it interrupted the recording of the call. I had to shut down and re-launch the Webinar.

Editing Teleseminars

Once you’ve completed your teleseminar or webinar, you’ll want to edit your project to create a professional project. This used to intimidate me because I had no experience with audio projects, but now after a few times of editing my own projects, it is a very simple process.

You can use Audacity which is free and does a great job or Camtasia which is about $450 but also allows you to video your computer monitor while you’re using your computer. It is an excellent training tool.

I record a lot of my speaking engagements. When I add a new program I’ll record the first few so I am able to evaluate what is effective, what works, what the audience responds to and what I like about the presentation. Then I’m be ready to record the program and create the CD.

I like to use a music introduction and a few seconds at the end. Also, it is important to add tracks every 10 minutes or so when someone is listening to the audio, they won’t have to start from the beginning if they stop before it has ended.

Almost every audio program uses nearly the same editing tools so I believe whichever program you use is fine.

Here’s a short video to let you see the basics of how I edit my audio programs.
