Just like in any presentation that may have been done in high school or college, there always needs to be some sort of preparation that comes before a teleconference meeting. But first, consider high school presentations: a student would never give a presentation without doing some sort of research and preparation first and, in the same way, presenters of teleconference meetings should do their due diligence before having participants sign onto a teleconference phone call or web meeting.
Information about the Opportunity or Program
But in order to be prepared for the teleconference meeting the first thing that needs to be considered is the topic of the presentation. For example, let’s take the topic of a newly-formed internet business opportunity. If you are the presenter of the teleconference meeting then you need to consider every piece of information that is related to the internet business opportunity in order to answer any anticipated questions beforehand. For example, many people will probably want to know how the internet business got its start. At the teleconference meeting that you’ll be holding an important section of the presentation should be devoted toward the company’s history.
Likewise, the same goes for specific facets of the company’s policy and the company’s goals. If you are going to attract more members into your business then you’ll most likely want to make the presentation sound as enticing as it really is! Stating the company’s “Mission Statement” would not be a bad idea as that will let every teleconference participant know what direction the company is headed.
However, probably the most important bit of information about the internet business opportunity that you’ll want to include in your presentation is the nuts and bolts of how everything really works. Many people will have such questions as how you make the money, how to promote the business, as well as compensation questions. These are all very important issues that should be covered in the presentation at the teleconference meeting!
Other Preparation Tips
Once you have gotten everything squared away as it relates to the company then the very next thing that you want to do is perform a mental rundown of how the teleconference meeting will go once everyone is signed on. For example, some important key things to remember about conducting these types of presentations is that most people would like the conference meeting to start on time, many people would like to hear introductions of every participant on the call (unless the participants number in the hundreds, of course!), as well as would like to hear an introduction of the presenter and how they got started with the program that they are promoting.
Another issue to consider is to remember to block out a specific portion of the teleconference meeting that is devoted to a “Questions and Answers” session. If the teleconference meeting is a particularly long one then it may be appropriate to open up two spots for questions and answers. However, making a checklist of everything that needs to be gone over is a perfect idea so as to not get off track, and having that list in front of you will help walk you through the teleconference meeting.
All of these things are important to consider when preparing for a teleconference meeting. Remembering that this teleconference should be helping both you and the participants is most beneficial, and that reasoning should automatically lead you to a more successful presentation and meeting.
