9 Keys to Becoming a BrightTALK Power User
As a BrightTALK user you have access to millions of minutes of professional content to help you grow and accelerate your career. Are you making the most of your time on BrightTALK? Here’s a list of nine keys to a fruitful audience experience – it’s never too late to become a BrightTALK power user!
1. Find your community
Find the BrightTALK community that best aligns with your professional interests. This is your content hub where you’ll discover the topics, thought leaders and vendors that matter to you most. The more you engage with content you like, the better the platform will become at recommending you relevant content.
2. Check your knowledge feed
Your personalized feed of webinars and videos from your community will be there to greet you every time you log in. Take a peek to find live, recorded and upcoming events to join or save for later.
3. Manage your emails
When you register to attend webinars and videos on BrightTALK, we’ll send you timely email updates to help you make the most of the events. BrightTALK audiences find these to be useful reminders and we see very few unsubscribes. We encourage you to manage the number and types of emails you’d like to receive from your email preferences.
4. Read your “What you need to know” email
Once a week, we’ll send you an email update with upcoming and recent content relevant to you so you can plan the week ahead and make the most of the information that matters to you. One audience member recently described this email as a “one-stop update about content I am interested in,” and that’s exactly what it aims to be.
5. Save events to your calendar
Attending an event live where you can ask questions and interact with the presenter is highly valuable. Add events you’ve registered to attend to your calendar to keep track of the content you want to see and make the most of your time investment. Should another engagement arise, all events on BrightTALK are available on demand immediately and indefinitely.
6. Engage with presenters live
Live events enable professionals to engage with leading thought leaders. It can cost hundreds of dollars to hear a recognized speaker at a conference, but on BrightTALK you can listen to and interact with some of the top minds in your industry easily and for free. Have your say in audience votes, submit your questions live and use any webinar hashtags mentioned in the presentation to follow the conversation on social networks.
7. Download slides and other attachments
Take advantage of the resources speakers provide in support of their presentations. Check the ‘attachments’ tab in the BrightTALK player for slide deck copies, white papers, helpful links and other information to continue expanding your understanding of the topic after the webinar is over.
8. Revisit presentations you loved
Check your viewing history to find the presentations that made an impression, re-watch valuable content at your convenience and share it with your colleagues and peers.
9. Learn on the go
Professionals are using the free My BrightTALK App to watch webinars while commuting or working on mobile devices. You can download webinars for later viewings and stream them at your convenience.
