Webcasts

SHOW ALL / HIDE ALL

+ Standard

Webcasts are a preferred information source for IT professionals involved in the evaluation and acquisition of technology and solutions for their companies. With a webcast, you select the topic of your choice (per publication's approval) and provide the content for the presentation. Our team manages the production and promotion of the live, one-hour online event.

Take away qualified leads, instant feedback from the audience through polls, surveys and Q&As, plus a recording of the event for your own use.

Benefits:

  • Guaranteed leads
  • Sponsor-selected topic and presentation
  • Promotional campaign to drive registrations for the webcast
  • Webcast is recorded and can be used as collateral resource
  • Leads generation

Add-On Opportunity:
Industry Speaker
Our standard webcast production, promotion and lead generation package with the added bonus of an industry expert speaker to create the presentation, moderate and present 15-20 minutes of custom content.

+ Digital Dialogue

Extend the life and reach of your webcast with a Digital Dialogue, a 2-page branded content piece written and designed by the publication's editorial and design team. A Digital Dialogue captures highlights of your webcast as a post in our site's Tech Library for lead generation. Sponsor also receives the final Digital Dialogue PDF, which can be used as a valuable marketing asset.

Benefits:

  • 2-page Webcast content overview posted in the site's Tech Library
  • Guaranteed leads, contact sales rep for details
  • Predicted leads BANT filters available at an additional cost
+ Standard/Customized

Tech-Talk
Our Tech-Talk is a custom thought leadership program that engages the audience through an integrated marketing approach. The program features an industry expert conducting an interview with a vendor product or technology solutions expert in a 1-hour Webcast. This expert will work with the executive in advance of the webcast to script what topics, solutions and questions will be discussed in the 1-hour live event. Based on the webcast content, we will create a solutions brief PDF that will be placed in our Tech Library for 90 days for lead generation. The PDF also includes a full-page advertisement for additional branding.

**This integrated program has proven to provide stronger lead generation activity that performs significantly better than a straight product pitch.

Tech-Talk Benefits:

  • Guaranteed leads*
  • Industry speaker provided by our team
  • Dedicated promotions to drive registrations for webcast registrations and solutions brief downloads

*Tech-Talk is a 2-3 month lead guarantee program.

+ Editorial Webcast

Our editorial webcasts are live, interview-style events between our editors and an industry analyst or expert on a particular topic. The editorial team chooses the subject-matter expert, and as the event sponsor, you will receive all the leads garnered from this high-visibility event. During an editorial event, sponsors are mentioned but do not have an opportunity to deliver presentations. Editorial webcasts tend to have larger numbers of attendees.

Benefits:

  • Guaranteed leads
  • Sponsor-selected topic
  • Promotional campaign to drive registrations for the webcast
  • Webcast is recorded and can be used as collateral resource
  • Lead generation
  • Audience engagement
  • Thought leadership

+ Continuing Education Webcasts

We are proud to offer a series of topic based Editorial Webcasts that offer attendees the chance to earn Certified Professional Education credits. Attendees can use these credits to:

  • Improve or maintain professional competence
  • Meet continuing education requirements
  • Earn a certificate for use in professional evaluations
  • Earn a badge for display on social media

We believe this benefit to attendee will increase and drive webcast registration and attendance. Sponsor decides whether they want to offer a sales pitch at the end and whether they want it to run 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, etc.

1105 Media is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.

As a NASBA sponsor of CPE, 1105 Media can offer CPE credits as an additional benefit to webcast packages.
