OSV author webcast how-to


Connecting with your readers is important, and interviews, radio and TV shows, and podcasts are good ways to do so.

At OSV, we also use our popular webcast (also called webinar) format to allow authors to present their books and areas of expertise, and answer readers’ questions.

What’s a webcast? Simply put, it’s a live, online meeting using web-hosted software like Webex, GoTo Meeting, or ON24 (which OSV uses). Webcasts combine audio (computer or conference call), video,  Powerpoint presentations and chat rooms (for questions and comments).

Tracy Stewart, webinar coordinator

If you’re asked to participate in an OSV author webcast, no worries! Our webcast coordinator and moderator Tracy Stewart will walk you though the process in advance of the event and answer any questions you have.

Tracy has put together a webcast video (what else!) on how our webcasts work. Visit here to login, and watch the nine-minute presentation. (It’s archived, so ignore the message that says the webcast has ended.)
