Conduct Author Teleseminars with Confidence

I'm seeing more authors and speakers take advantage of technology to teach and interact with their audience remotely. For instance, one of my clients is conducting a free teleseminar this week, and she already has over 70 participants signed-up. Not only will she get good exposure for her new book, she also plans to launch a paid tele-coaching group out of this free event. This is a great idea, and one that any non-fiction author should consider.

However, teleseminars and webinars can quickly fall apart if you don't know how to do them right. Recently, I ran across a great article by Vicki Sullivan, called "Speaking at Remote Events: How to be Present when Your Body Isn't." The article helps identify key distinctions to consider as you plan a teleseminar. Vicki has years of experience and her material is quite insightful.
