Why You Should Leverage Evergreen Webinars

Evergreen content is valuable content that is relevant over a long period of time. This content is used for ongoing campaigns and doesn’t need to be replaced or updated often.

We will discuss how this applies to your webinar marketing strategy. But first, let’s take a step back to understand evergreen webinars.

What are Evergreen Webinars?

Timeless content that does not need constant updating, while being a valuable resource to external stakeholders (potential leads, investors, etc.).

It can be a content tool that establishes you, and your business, as Thought Leaders. Evergreen webinars can also be an effective tool to help identify Market Qualified Leads (MQLs). They are also a great marketing resource for repurposing content.

Evergreen webinars are a great way to help build out your content marketing strategy.
