QuickStart: Webinars & Teleseminars

Want to host the perfect webinar or teleseminar? Here are some best practices
for configuring your Eventbrite event so that your webinar goes off without a hitch.

1.

If your event is purely an online webinar or teleseminar, set the location to "online event" in the dropdown menu in Step 5: Add Where on the Edit page for your event.




Learn more about how to do this here.

Note: If this is the first event created in your account, there will not be a dropdown from which to select "online event." You'll need to first set a dummy physical location for your event, save that location, and then choose "online event," which will now appear in the dropdown menu.

2.

Disable PDF tickets for your event by un-checking the PDF ticket options on the Edit Order Confirmations page, which is accessed on the left side of the Manage page for your event.



No need to make your attendees print out tickets to a webinar or phone-in teleseminar!


More info about how to do this can be found here.


3.

Include all log-in information for your webinar or teleseminar in the order confirmation email and page, which can be done on the Edit Order Confirmations page. That way, your attendees will automatically find out how to access the webinar or teleseminar immediately after they register on your event page. Be sure to include any software or hardware requirements.

4.

Use the Email Attendees feature, accessed on the left side of the Manage page, to schedule email reminders and create anticipation for your event. Make sure to include all the log-in and technical information your attendees will need to access the webinar or teleseminar.

5.

After your event, use the Email Attendees feature to provide your attendees with links to any slides you used in your webinar or teleseminar, or to websites of interest. (You'll need to host your slides on an outside site, like TinyPic, and then include links to the files in the body of your email.)

6.

Consider offering a phone-in alternative for a webinar as both a solid backup plan and a welcome alternative for less tech-savvy users. Also, think about including a phone number on your event page or in the confirmation email and/or page so that your attendees can call you with any urgent questions they might have.
