Elevate Your Virtual Town Halls with the Right Technology

Tackling Investor Relations in a Hybrid or Remote World

How are you handling sensitive investor relations in a hybrid or remote world? Historically, these conversations were often held in person due to the nature of the confidential information, sometimes sticky situations, and important relationship-building that was best facilitated face-to-face.

By 2030, it’s projected that the global virtual events industry will hit $774 billion, an almost 10x increase from 2019, and the investor relations industry will absolutely be participating in that growth. Workforces are increasingly distributed, teams and investors are located globally, and businesses are beginning to realize virtual events are an effective way to reach shareholders, employees, partners, and even the media.

When it comes to investor relations, whether that’s earnings calls, investor days, or annual presentations, there are a few ways to host a successful investor event that increases transparency, offers visibility into the future, and even offers a channel to repurpose non-confidential content into information for the website, social media, and customer emails.

3 Tips for Hosting a Virtual Earnings Call

1. Utilize Different Visuals

One of the fastest ways to modernize earnings calls is to incorporate dynamic, engaging visuals and other supplemental materials. It can be challenging to stare at text-heavy, revenue-based slides for hours, so using elements like video content, switching seamlessly between speakers to break up the monotony, and engaging charts, videos, and funnels will help create a dynamic presentation. You can even swap presentation layouts, keeping on pace with the agenda while keeping attendees interested and engaged.

2. Supplement with Transcriptions

When thinking about reaching global audiences in different time zones, it’s important to know that not everyone can attend a live meeting. You can share a video recording with on-demand playback that allows attendees to view it on their own time. As some investors and partners might not have time to participate in an hour-plus presentation, transcripts can be incredibly helpful in disseminating lengthy, detail-oriented information.

3. Keep Security Top-of-Mind

GlobalMeet Webcast’s enterprise-grade security ensures that the only people who hear this information are those who absolutely need to know. Additional features like gated access, password protection, and login authentication keep your investor earnings call secure and confidential.
