2 nights I had 4 hours of Virtual Meetings. I do these meetings with people from all over the world. Last night included, East Coast, Central, and west coast USA, India, Canada, Sweden and Thailand.
I also do mostly 1 on 1 or maybe with 2 or three people. Occasionally I have done meetings of 25 or more.
Today I did some research and put together a quick 5 point guide to running an Effective Virtual Meeting.
The Five points are:
1. Have a clear meeting agenda or purpose
2. Only include necessary attendees
3. Start/End on time
4. Maximize participation
5. Effective follow-up
I ran about 6 meetings a week for 6 weeks (one week I had a high of 15 meetings) through the months of July and August. These meetings resulted in increase revenues of $9128 in one time purchases and $875 in subscription purchases.
A very profitable venture. I add that the attendees came from 2 sources. One was my list and the second was referrals from my list. I got the referrals in two ways. One was asking the attendee from my list and the second was ask my attendee in Facebook messenger and providing him a template message to share with 5 of his friends. The Facebook option worked better.
Questions for you:
Do you use Virtual Meetings?
Have you been in Virtual Meetings?
What platform do you use? (I use mostly zoom)
What works, what makes the meeting good?
What does not work, what makes the meeting awkward or unsuccessful?
Thanks for your input.
