People like watching videos on YouTube. When your Webinar is available on YouTube you can expect an increase in viewers, audience retention and chat participation. Now let’s take things a step further. A innovative new service call Joicaster will take a single live stream and distribute it to multiple CDN’s. Switchboard Live (the owners of Joicaster) claim this can increase live event audiences by up to five times the viewers of a single CDN. Our early test has confirmed that we can increase our webinar viewers by about 2X and the initial results are displayed on the chart below.
As you can see we have almost doubled our webinar attendance by streaming to multiple destinations which include: CBS Interactive, ConnectCast, Dailymotion, Yahoo Live and YouTube Live. If live streaming is a new technology for you, I would suggest starting with YouTube Live. Once you have hosted a couple webinars successfully with YouTube Live consider boosting your audience further with Joicaster.
If you offer your users the option to watch your webinar online you may be surprised how many users take advantage of the offer. YouTube will reward you with huge SEO benefits, instantly giving your recorded video views for all the webinar attendees. If your viewers arrive a 1/2 hour late they can simply turn back time using YouTube’s recorded video feature. Plus YouTube now supports video up to 1080p 60fps and is currently using the most advanced adaptive bit rate streaming possible to reach the largest audiences even at the lowest bandwidth availability.
