One of the more discouraging problems you can run into as a presenter is to lead a webinar that’s packed with information, only to encounter a silent room. It’s hard to gauge how well you’re doing, or how interesting your presentation is, if you never get any feedback from the participants. Are they interested? Does what you’re saying make sense? Audience participation doesn’t just make presenting easier though—if people are engaged, asking questions and sharing their experiences, they get more out of the webinar.
