13SOURCES: We had also talked about including a slide or two that mention online events. One possible connection could be talking about online events as a tool for companies to talk to and collaborate with customers. Presenters gain insight from their audience through votes, survey responses, questions and feedback. This information can be used to help the presenter know what type of content interests his or her audience and which audience members are the most engaged (asked the most questions or provided the most feedback). By providing information and sharing expertise, presenters can also prompt audience members to become their advocates by giving them the tools to share their content with their networks. Another possible connection to online events could be around syncing the data you gain through online events (number of views, duration, participation in votes and surveys) with data from social networks to create a lead score that triggers an alert to sales if it is high enough.
