Webinars are an effective way for businesses to get the word out about their products and services. However, with so many webinars being offered every day, it can be difficult for your customers to know which ones are worth watching. In this article, we’ll discuss why personalization is important when it comes to webinar conversions and show you how you can use it in your own presentations to improve engagement and sales.

Personalization is the most important element of a webinar conversion strategy. It’s what separates you from your competitors, giving you an edge over them and helping you to convert more leads into customers.

Personalization refers to making content more relevant for each individual visitor, based on their interests and needs. In other words, personalization helps attract visitors by showing them information that they’ll actually want to see instead of having them filter through irrelevant content or advertisements (which can be frustrating).

Personalization is the use of information about your audience to make them feel more connected to you.

It’s a powerful tool that can be used in many different ways, but here are some examples

  • Pre-webinar surveys: While participants are registering for your webinar, include a question on the survey which asks participants what they are expecting from the webinar. This is the golden data that you can use to address all of your participants’ questions and concerns in the presentation. Additionally, use the demographics and age group to tailor the content of your webinar!
  • QnA: Asking questions and responding to audience members’ answers. You can also personalize based on what people share about themselves during the webinar. Use Lens to understand engagement in your webinar real-time, and customise your content to be more comprehensive accordingly. 
  • Send a post-webinar personalized email: Use Lens to get a list of the most active participants during the webinar, because these are the ones on whom personalization will be most effective. If you can, including small personalized messages in your post-webinar email can dramatically increase the conversion rates of your webinars. The more important people feel, the more likely they develop a liking for your service.

  • Personalized messaging is more likely to be read, which means that it’s more likely to get through to customers and encourage them to take action.
  • Showing customers they matter – Personalization shows customers that they matter to us as individuals rather than just another number (or dollar sign). It also shows them we care about solving their problems or achieving their goals–which improves trust between buyer and seller!
  • Personalizing your webinar content to suit your participants’ needs can help them gain more value from your webinar, and they are more likely to be appreciative of your company which can lead to them converting as well as spreading the word about you.



Personalization is a powerful tool for webinar marketers, and it can help boost your conversion rates. But remember that personalization isn’t just about using the right name or email address. It’s also about understanding what information your audience needs most at every stage of their journey with your company–from discovery through purchase and beyond. The next time you run a webinar, try adding some personalized touches to see how they impact your results!
