Not all marketing and PR professionals can afford the time or the money to go to conferences and seminars. If you are self-employed or work for a smaller company, there just may not be the budget available. Thankfully the business community has realized this and now there are numerous webinars available online.
What, exactly, is a webinar?
Well, it is a web-based learning tool for businesses and individual. Basically you have access to the same information you would if you were to attend a seminar in person. You watch the webinar from the comfort of your office or your home. Depending on the webinar it can simply be a lecture, where an industry specialist talks to the audience about a certain topic, or it could be more interactive, with participants asking questions over the phone, through Skype or other webinar software.
