To set up registration for a webinar event, start by finding a company that offer webinar and online conferencing tools, such as GoToMeeting, Eventbrite and WebEx. These sites offer built-in tools to allow users create a webinar from start to finish. Once an account is created, meeting hosts can either invite attendees from their email list or place a link on their site to give visitors the option of registering for the webinar.
When setting up an event, hosts must first create an account or a page for their webinar, then determine how attendees can sign up, such as by using their own unique login or by provide a single password for everyone to use. A dial-in number is also necessary for people who want to call in. Adding an email contact option is key for those who may need further information on the event or the registration process.
Online webinar services also feature tools to schedule reminders for the event, so it is important to ensure all the details about the event are included. They also give the ability to edit an already-created event and update the attendees on the changes.
When the event's scheduled time comes, attendees can visit the link to the webinar page. Hosts can also set a reminder an hour before the event, or another pre-determined interval. After the event, the email list can be used to send out links to the slides used in the webinar, or other follow up information. This also ensures that people who failed to attend are up-to-date on the discussed topics.
