Seeking Opinions On The Value Of Webinars

I'm with a smaller security technology business, and looking at different ways to engage with the market. One option is around running and hosting technical / product webinars, which seem to be increasingly common.

I'd appreciate any feedback from the community here on:

- do you see value in webinars, and do you participate in them?

- if you do, then what works and doesn't work with webinars (length, type of format, content, how it is pitched, technical vs sales focus etc)?

Any feedback and suggestions welcome!
