Tweetable Takeaways from the 2016 BrightTALK Webinar Benchmarks Report

 In BrightTALK Academy, Uncategorized, Webinars

This week we released our annual BrightTALK Webinar Benchmarks Report, in which we analyzed 12,000+ webinars published on our platform in 2015 and traced what’s effective in rich media marketing.

While some of the data kept a similar trend line year over year, there were several new and notable takeaways from this year’s edition.

What did we see increase? Audience engagement saw a major boost, most notably with the number of questions asked during presentations, which went up by 96%. We also saw a large spike in the number of pre-registrants who sign up before the live day, underscoring the value of having your landing page up early to drive more registrants.

Check out a few of our top takeaways below, and download the report for other insights.
