What You'll Hear:

Engaging an online audience isn’t easy because there are an endless list of other things vying for their attention

Goal: Be more interesting than your audience's distractions​


1. Choose your content wisely

  • Make sure it's interesting and relevant to your audience

2. Show interest

  • Be sure to appear highly engaged and passionate

3. Get to the point

  • Be brief and clear, reiterate important points​

4. Address the elephant in the room

  • Invite your audience away from distractions and back to you

5. Include your audience

  • Consider Q&A, polls, the chat box feature, etc.

6. Show rather than tell

  • Go for eye-catching visuals that illustrate your points

7. Infuse variety

  • Alternate between teaching, storytelling, video, Q&A, etc., especially for longer presentations
