					How to Choose the Ideal Teleseminar Technology Provider

Teleseminar technology is costly to purchase but affordable to rent. If
the infrequency of your teleseminars makes purchase impractical, leasing
the equipment needed would obviously be the next step to take. Here are a
few tips to help you find the ideal teleseminar technology provider.

What You Need
Before approaching any company, make a list of the exact tools and
technology you’ll need for your teleseminar. If you approach a company
without having any idea of what you require, it’s easier for the latter
to convince you to spend far more than you should by exaggerating your
needs.

Besides offering a wide range of teleseminar tools, most providers also
offer various services to make your teleseminar more effective and
smooth-sailing. Their services may include but aren’t limited to tools
training for your employees or personnel to operate them, payment
processing, and registration as well as additional tools for reporting
and recording.

If necessary, these companies can also hook you up with venues that can
meet your requirements for physical meeting place. Remember to include
phone services in your list!

What You May Want
There will be times when teleseminar technology providers will ask for
additional tools or services you may wish to add to your list as a bonus.
It’s better to prepare for this eventuality by having a list of the add-
on services that, albeit unnecessary, can enhance your teleseminar.

Who to Talk to

Now that you know what you need and want, it’s time to find out which
companies are best able to meet your needs. The first thing to do is ask
around. Is there anyone you know with previous experience in holding
teleseminars successfully? Can they give you any references? Use the
Internet if there’s no one in your network able to give you the
information you need.

Compare

Start with your list of requirements. Which of   them meets your needs?
Proceed with the costs. Now that you’ve a list   of teleseminar technology
providers able to meet your requirements for a   price you can afford,
contact them for a more detailed discussion of   their services.

It is during this time you’ll be able to make a more in-depth comparison
of what they’re offering. This is when the topic of free add-on services
will come up so keep your ears open for them. Take their customer service
into consideration as well. Are they easy to talk to and negotiate with?

Since these companies are liable to put their best foot forward in these
instances, remember to take their words with a grain of salt. Use the
Internet to read on customer testimonials and find out more about the
things the company might be inclined to tell you.

Choose

You’ve said everything you had to say and you’ve heard everything they
have to say. It’s time to make a decision. Besides the various concerns
mentioned above, don’t forget to ask the most important thing: will their
services be available on the time and date of your teleseminar?

Upon finding the ideal teleseminar technology provider, proceed with
having your agreement in writing. Double-check the contract and be sure
to read the fine print. Make sure that the penalties are clearly spelled
out if either of you fails to comply with any of the terms.

Have a Backup

It never hurts to have one and if you wish to completely guarantee the
success of your teleseminar, you better have a Plan B waiting in the
wings just in case your teleseminar technology provider doesn’t come to
scratch.
