I read a case study a few months back on how Reveille Software leveraged the use of webinars for lead generation. Reveille had a clear objective, which is to increase new leads interested in the company's performance management solutions.

If you are familiar with planning online meetings and events, you know presenting online in an engaging and interactive format can sometimes be a challenge.
When putting an ear to the conferencing industry, one question we hear time and time again from presenters is, "How do you capture the authenticity and interactive dynamics of a face-to-face meeting, and then project those same qualities into an online meeting."
I was on LinkedIn the other day, perusing the "Answers" section when I stumbled upon a question posed from a longstanding marketer.

Great question, a lot of people interchange the three and they shouldn't, they are very separate entities.
