As a diverse AV company, MWEE is a well-known and reliable partner of the government. They realize a wide range of online events. In this success story you can read how they do that.
Who are you and what do you do at MWEE?
My name is Jolein Foks and I am the Event Stylist at MWEE, a company in image, light and sound. Because of Corona, we have been unable to do anything for 1.5 months. The calendar was empty. We started over and began hosting webinars. We produced a lot of live events for the government already. This was then moved to online events. Corona was basically the switch from live to online.
Why do you use webinars in your offer to the client?
The government is not allowed to come together with a lot of people. That's why webinars were a godsend. Webinars are great in reaching the largest possible audience! The government has over 10-20 events a day. We work closely with the RVO (National Service for Entrepreneurs).
How do you use webinars?
We use webinars very widely: completely online but also in productions in the studio. We host webinars live at any location. We build a studio and connect WebinarGeek for the software. In these studios we use remote cameras, so that only the speakers are visible in the studio. We already had the equipment from our live events, so we could use that again.
Why did you choose for WebinarGeek?
WebinarGeek provides a stable platform with good quality. We want to give that to our customers. No other platform does that like WebinarGeek. You can very well set up everything according to the wishes of the customer. The statistics are very nice because that gives the client the total package. The connection between our own equipment and WebinarGeek's software is great. This reinforces each other.
What has been your most successful webinar?
That's difficult to answer, because every webinar is a success when it is completed. In the past year we have done more than 300 webinars. We did one between Christmas and New Years where a company's management would hand out prizes to employees at home. That was fun!
What is your favorite WebinarGeek feature?
The statistics. Who has watched, for how long, what did they vote, what question did they ask? If 400 people watch your webinar of 1.5 hours, it is very nice that you can print these stats out immediately after the webinar. Then send it to the customer who can then turn it into a Q&A. Very valuable.
What is your most important tip for someone who wants to start with webinars?
Prepare yourself well. What is the message you want to convey? Keep your message short. Know what you have to say. Also pay attention to your background. If necessary, have someone interview you so that your story comes across more easily.
