Webinars are a powerful way to showcase your expertise, build trust with your audience, and generate leads for your business. But how do you make sure your webinar is engaging, informative, and memorable?
One of the most important factors is how you anchor your webinar, or how you introduce the topic, the speakers, and the agenda, as well as how you moderate the Q&A session and close the webinar.
