1. Creating Your Webinar

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

  1. Open your Admin Dashboard.

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!

2. Customize (Optional)

Customers on Growth and above have access to the Customization suite. Select "Customization" in the side bar. Here you can customize the fonts, colors, buttons and more. For your first event, we recommend adding your brand colors and font.

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.
