Webcasting and Webcast Advertising

What is webcasting?

A webcast is a multimedia event or e-presentation that can play video, sound, slides, or any combination of any of these sensory techniques. Further, a webcast can utilize a database back end to collect and store participant information (opinion surveys, voting, chat, email addresses, etc.) to make it an interactive e-presentation.

Types of Webcasts

There are different types of webcasts, tailored to the different needs of an audience.

Live Webcast: a fashion show, a news event, a concert, an analyst meeting, a sales meeting - any realtime webcast as the event is actually happening.

Archived Webcast: after the live webcast, the webcast can be indexed and archived for people who couldn't view it live.

Stand-alone Webcast: this webcast is placed as an ad or an archive piece - training materials, entertainment or an ad at a popular website.

Interactive Webcast: a webcast that collects information from its viewers - surveys, emails, etc. It can be either live or stand-alone.

Webcast Advertising Objectives

To determine your webcast ad objectives, consider:

Your target market. Gather as much demographic information on your customer as possible (age, sex, job function, income. etc.) Also, consider your psychographic profile. What are your targets' interests, regardless of their demographic profile?

Your advertising communication objective. (Branding, traffic-building, direct sales, corporate communication, public relations, investor relations, etc.)

Measures of successful implementation (high amount of visitation, emails, click-throughs, answering survey questions correctly, etc.) Your budget. Return on investment is another significant measure of success.

Webcasting Media Types

Webcasts can utilize many different types of multimedia. Which forms are best suited to your objectives?

Nine Steps to Acing a Job Interview

Nine Steps to Acing a Job Interview

by Penelope Trunk

A good way to think about the process of getting a job is that a resume gets you in the door, and an interview is where you close the deal.

Here are nine ways to ace an interview and get the job:

1. Tell good stories.

2. Understand the behavioral interview.

3. Ask questions at the beginning, not the end.

4. Stop stressing about your MySpace page.

6. Present a plan.

7. Manage your parents.

8. Play to stereotypes.

9. Practice. A lot.

A story I used to tell in interviews Heath says there are three different kinds of plots we can create about ourselves.

1. The challenge plot.

2. The creativity plot.

3. The connection plot.

Once you’ve practiced a bit, you can relish the moment someone says, “So, what do you do?” If you understand how to talk about yourself, this is an opening to connect in a meaningful way and make a lasting impression.

Dear Ms. Grant:

How are you?

I am writing in response to your ad for a Graphic Presentation Assistant, posted on the website July 1, 2007.

As you can see from my resume and portfolio, I have acquired quite a bit of experience with product graphics and presentation coordination,
Marketing and Advertising.

I know that you also require someone with a BFA in Graphics in addition to the Photoshop, Illustrator and Microsoft application skills. Although my degree is in Industrial, rather than Graphic, Design, marketing and publish most of my roles in projects at school have finely tuned my graphic capabilities. I hope that you'll agree after viewing my portfolio images.

I would love to work with QUALITY; I have long been a fan of your forward thinking product development work. I feel that with your company I will be able to continue my professional growth, both as a graphic designer and a production specialist.

I look forward to hearing from you. I can be reached at this email address ( ), or by telephone at 212-555-3825. I will try to follow up with you to make sure you've received everything you need.
