Creating Your Webinar

Creating a webinar in Sequel.io is fast, easy and powerful. Follow these steps:

  1. Open your Sequel Admin Dashboard

  2. Select Events in the sidebar

  3. Select New Event

  4. Add your Event Name, the Start Time/Date, Event Duration, and specify whether it is a single event or a recurring event

  5. Double-check the info and select Complete and Save

Single Events can always be edited later by selecting them in the Events tab, but for now, let's focus on getting your first webinar LIVE!

Recurring events allow you to host events in the same embed. This is great for highly repetitive content, like a Weekly Demo or a Monthly Product update.

Customize Your Webinar

The Customization tab allows you to create themes so your events feel like your brand. Choose from the Sequel.io presets or create you're own! You can customize colors, and core features and even add gradients to certain elements.

Preview Your Webinar

Now that you've created your webinar and customized it's time to see what it looks like! Launch your event preview by clicking the preview button in the event details or selecting the preview icon on the Event tab. You can set up your audio and video settings, test registration, enter backstage, chat, and even Go Live! If you want to preview the banner image, select the Profile icon and log out from the stage as the Host!

Share Your Webinar

Your webinar is created, customized, and previewed. Now you need people to experience it with you! Share your webinar from the preview by clicking the share button. This will bring you back to the Participants tab, where you can add other Hosts & Presenters. For this first webinar, we recommend sharing with colleagues and friends.

Go Live

The moment you've been working towards, going live! Enter your webinar just as you did when you were previewing it earlier. Select Join to access the stage once you have completed your media device set-up. When you're ready to start your webinar select "Go Live" in the upper right-hand corner.

Once you've finished your webinar select End Session and publish your On Demand Replay!

Prepare for the Sequel

Now that you've run your first webinar on Sequel.io you're ready to build your own webinar series. Start asking yourself questions like how should I organize my event? If you haven't already, you can just look at embedding your next webinar on your website.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us via Chat or at support@sequel.io with any other questions you may have throughout this process.
