One common mistake made by many onlinepreuners in regards to the managing of webinar is that they assume participants all resides in the same time zone![pinit]
Even though it is difficult to schedule a time that is convenient for all participants, the least the organizer should do is find out the demographic of the majority of the invitees and avoid one that is at 3.00am in the morning !
One factor that is often overlook, one that might inconvenience many is the lack of local time indication for the scheduled event. For instance, a webinar notice might indicates 22 October 2012 at two pm EST or EDT at US, what is the time for someone who is in asia for instance Singapore?
Another mistake that you should avoid is to use the meeting to pitch your sales from the start of the session. Remember that it is not just your time that is valuable.
People set aside time to accept and attend your webinar because they expect some values out from it, not just to hear snake oil pitch about how great your product is.
