If your business is at the size where you already have a decent sized email list and customer base, teleseminars can be a great way to bring in new customers and get more sales out of your existing customers.
==> Using Teleseminars to Bring in New Customers
A teleseminar can be a great “hook” to get new people into your marketing funnel.
Publish the free teleseminar on your Twitter feed, your Facebook page, your email list and any other way you can. Users who may not necessarily want to buy a product from you may like you enough to sign up for a teleseminar with you.
Once you get them on the teleseminar, you’ll have a much better chance of making an impression, building a connection and turning them into real prospects.
==> Use It to Create Reciprocity
The principle of reciprocity essentially says that “When someone does something good for you, you want to do something good for them.”
This is the reason why many donation-seeking canvassers will give you a rose or a free gift before asking you for money: giving something to someone causes them to want to give back.
In a teleseminar, you give people something extremely valuable for free: information.
Even if someone listening to you doesn’t buy on the spot, they’ll still reciprocate by giving you something else that’s valuable. Usually, that’s their attention – in giving you their email, opening your emails etc.
==> Use It to Generate Sales
Using teleseminars to generate sales can be quite challenging to master. However, once you have the skill down, it can be an incredibly powerful sales tool.
A teleseminar allows you to give a full length sales presentation to a captive audience. As long as you deliver hardcore value alongside your sales pitch, you stand a very good chance of both building connection with your market and making a lot of sales.
Selling on teleseminars involves taking all your listeners through the whole emotional sales process: interest, the feeling of the problem, desire for the solution, proving that you can deliver and then really painting the picture of them having the problem solved.
==> Use It to Sell High-Ticket Items
Finally, teleseminars can be one of the most effective ways of selling high-ticket items.
It’s very hard to convince someone to part with $10,000 over email, in a sales letter or even on video. However, if they get the chance to interact with you in a teleseminar, they’ll get much more of a sense of who you are and whether they can trust you.
Using teleseminars, you can build trust with high network individuals to sell high-ticket items that you just wouldn’t be able to sell any other way.
To sum it up, teleseminars are a great way to build your business for many reasons. It can be a great hook to get people in the door, it can be used to build trust with existing fans and it can be used to sell all kinds of products.
