We care a lot about showcasing our branding on advertisements, social media accounts, and even company swag, so why should it be any different when hosting webinars?
Sessions makes it easy to put your brand on the center stage, both when promoting it and during the live webinar. In this way, you can create a personalized and lasting impression that resonates with audiences around the world.
Branding for Impact
In the fast-paced world of live webinars, branding is your secret weapon. It's not just about having a snazzy logo or vibrant colors; it's about crafting a consistent identity that leaves a lasting impact on your audience. Let's dive deeper into why branding is essential in virtual events and how it contributes to their success.
Picture this: You're attending a webinar where every element, from the landing page to the presentation slides, aligns seamlessly with a cohesive and professional brand identity. This consistency exudes confidence and competence, setting the stage for a truly polished event.
Professionalism is the bedrock of a successful virtual event. When your audience perceives your event as well-organized, trustworthy, and credible, they're more likely to engage actively. This professionalism extends beyond aesthetics; it influences the overall experience, making attendees feel like they're in capable hands. Sessions helps you achieve this level of professionalism effortlessly.
In the digital landscape, where online interactions dominate, trust is the currency of engagement. Building trust begins with consistency in branding. When attendees encounter a webinar that aligns with what they've seen on social media, your website, or previous events, they feel a sense of familiarity and comfort. This familiarity breeds trust.
Trust is a cornerstone of audience engagement and conversion rates. Attendees are more likely to register for your event, actively participate, and return for future ones when they trust your brand. Trust also fuels word-of-mouth recommendations, a powerful driver of event attendance. People naturally share their positive experiences, and consistent branding ensures these experiences are memorable and reliable.
Fostering Top-of-Mind Awareness
In the world of virtual events, the name of the game is leaving an indelible mark on your audience's memory. This is where top-of-mind brand awareness comes into play. It means that when your target audience thinks about a specific topic or industry, your brand is not just remembered; it's the first thing that comes to mind. Achieving this level of recognition involves more than just a catchy slogan; it's about forging a deep connection between your brand and your content.
Branding that fosters top-of-mind awareness creates a mental association between your brand and the valuable insights and information you provide in your webinars. It's like a mental shortcut that leads your audience straight to your brand when they think about the subject matter.
Every time your audience encounters your logo, brand colors, or a personalized touch in your webinar, it reinforces the connection between your brand and the valuable information you provide. Over time, this association becomes stronger, making your brand the go-to source in your field.
Customizing Your Webinar Interface with Sessions
Sessions empowers you to create this level of branding effortlessly. It allows you to infuse every aspect of your webinar with your brand's identity, making it an unforgettable experience for your audience. From the moment they register until they receive their final post-webinar follow-up message, your brand will be front and center, ensuring that your audience remembers not just your content but also the trusted source behind it.
1. Branded Colors
Branding isn't just about logos and slogans; it's also about colors. Colors evoke emotions, convey messages, and establish visual recognition. With Sessions, you can choose an accent color, allowing you to infuse your brand's hue throughout the platform. Here's how Sessions facilitates this:
User-friendly color customization: Sessions offers an intuitive interface that allows you to easily incorporate an accent color, in addition to setting a custom wallpaper with an image or logo of your choice.
Visual consistency: When attendees navigate your virtual event and encounter your brand's colors consistently, it reinforces your brand's identity and professionalism. This visual consistency helps establish trust and familiarity, making attendees feel at home within your event.
Emotional impact: Colors have a profound impact on emotions. By strategically using your brand's colors, you can evoke the desired emotions in your audience. For instance, in Western cultures, warm colors like red and orange can create excitement and urgency, while cool colors like blue and green convey calmness and trust.
Your logo is the face of your brand, and it deserves a prominent place in your virtual event. Sessions makes it effortless to showcase your logo throughout the platform, strengthening brand recognition:
Logo placement:Sessions allows you to strategically place your logo on your event landing page, as well as make it visible in the top-left corner of the screen during live sessions. This ensures that your brand's visual identity is consistently reinforced.
Size and position control: Upload your logo in two different sizes (logo and logomark) to use in your presentation. Your logo will be displayed in emails and during the live webinar.
Branded wallpaper: Upload your own unique wallpaper to be visible during the event. You can also upload a custom background with your branding.

Brand consistency: Branded URLs strengthen the connection between your event and brand. They serve as a powerful reminder of your brand's presence and make your event more inviting and professional.
Improved accessibility: Branded URLs are not only visually appealing but also user-friendly. Attendees are more likely to access your event when the URL aligns with your brand identity, creating a seamless experience from start to finish.
