Your webinar is created, customized and previewed. Now you just need people to experience it with you! Share your webinar right from the preview by clicking the share button and adding emails. For this first webinar we recommend sharing with colleagues and friends.
5. 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 Enter Backstage to gain access to the stage once you have completed your media device set-up. When you're ready to start you webinar select "Go Live" in the upper righthand corner. When the countdown is completed you'll be live to your viewers. Once you've finished your webinar select End Session and publish your On Demand Replay!
6. 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, look at embedding your next webinar on your own website.
