Webinars have become increasingly popular in the last few years, especially since the pandemic. Linking to our previous blog, you’ll know that video content is a big trend for 2023, and webinars are an effective way to educate, inform and raise brand awareness for your company. If you are looking to engage with Gen Z, it is important to note that they prefer to watch or listen than to read, therefore hosting a webinar is a great way to get their attention and interact with them. Below are some useful statistics about webinars that you should keep in mind:
95% of businesses believe webinars are an important part of their marketing strategy
73% of B2B companies say webinars are the best way to generate high-quality leads
61% of companies use webinars as a content marketing tactic
First thing to consider is the date and time of your webinar. It’s crucial to get this right when planning, so it’s important to understand everything you can about your target audience before finalising. Further stats provide some insights that could help maximise engagement and audience attendance:
Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Thursdays are the best days to host webinars

We recently hosted a webinar in partnership with Amazon. It was very interactive, discussing apprenticeships in general and apprenticeships at Amazon. It was great to see lots of audience engagement and passion for the apprenticeship route, we could host something similar for you too!
Webinars can be a great recruitment marketing and brand awareness tool, but there are many factors you need to consider beforehand to ensure it is marketed and organised efficiently.
