The webinar was a first for Tony too, and the response was great. About 800 people paid $100 to attend. The night before, Amy and Tony practiced for the webinar on the GoToWebinar platform. When they were done, Amy hit a button to end the practice session but accidentally deleted the webinar instead. In an instant, Tony and all 800 customers received an email saying, "This webinar has been canceled." A panicked Amy and team stayed up all night working with GoToWebinar to piece Tony's webinar back together. In that moment, Amy hated webinars and never wanted to do one again. However, by morning the problem was resolved. Everyone received a follow-up email saying the webinar was still happening. Although Amy was a nervous wreck, the webinar was a huge success. She then realized webinars allow you to connect in a very personal way. The connection aspect of the webinar was awesome and Amy was hooked. About a year later, in 2010, when Amy started her own business, webinars became the number-one way she promoted her online courses. Hey friends!

Indeed, Amy has done webinars for all of her live launches except one, for which she did a three-part video series. However, she still added webinars afterward. Amy likes webinars because she loves to give before asking for anything in return. Webinars are a great way to teach and sell. Over the years, Amy has improved her ability to align the free content with the pitch, but giving is still her motivation for offering webinars. Before she starts a live webinar, she puts herself in this giving mindset by saying to herself, "No matter if they buy or not, they walk away today feeling excited, inspired, and driven to take action." Because Amy does a lot of business promotion, she appreciates the way webinars allow her to slow down. They allow her to make an impact before asking for anything in return. She's built a multimillion-dollar business primarily based on webinar promotions. Listen to the show to hear Amy's thoughts on improving something that works versus trying new things. What to Sell on a Webinar While some experts say you could sell anything on a webinar, Amy disagrees. Webinars are ideal when you're selling knowledge and the product allows someone to continue learning in a medium that's similar to the webinar itself. For example, pre-recorded online courses sell well. In the webinar, you can break down what's included in a $1,000 course, explain how your audience can get the course right away, and share the link. Then attendees simply sign up and receive the course immediately. The process is seamless. Similarly,
