Send an invitation out to your e-newsletter subscribers with a link to the webstreaming page or a sign-up option if they wish to receive a call.
Use the Social Marketing Playbook (provided with Total Access Events) to publicize your event on Facebook and/or Twitter to gain more traction before the call.
Put the audio file from the call on your website, and post video follow-ups to the unanswered questions on a dedicated Access Live™ page on your website. Better yet, use the Social Media Dashboard to post relevant clips during your event.
Create a generic Live Answer, Answering Machine, and PostCall Voicemail file that you can use frequently so you don't have to record sound files each time you have an event.
Include email/mailing address information with your dial list; this makes for easy creation of "thank you" notes for participants and "sorry we missed you" notes for others, as well as making it easier to capture new e-newsletter subscribers.
