Live Webinar

A Live webinar is the most common type of webinar, with real-time interactivity between the host and attendees. You can speak live on camera or do a live voice-over behind a slide presentation.

On a Live webinar, you can share your screen, present slideshows, play videos, or have a discussion with presenters while interacting in real-time with your audience with engagement tools.

Recording is automatic for Live webinars. As soon as it ends, a replay becomes available for you to download and for your registrants to watch, or even share the replay to those who have not registered for the live broadcast. You can also limit or disable access to the webinar replay.


Automated Webinar

An Automated webinar (also known as an evergreen webinar) uses a pre-recorded video file for recurring sessions at specified dates and times or for on-demand access.

You can use a YouTube video, a video uploaded from your own drive, or one of your previous live webinar recordings.

There's no live chat for this type of webinar. Instead, your attendees can post questions on the webinar page which you can answer directly via email. You can also set up polls, offers, and handouts in advance for your attendees.


Series Webinar

A series webinar is made up of two or more webinar sessions packaged into a single experience. It requires only a one-time registration from your attendees; once people sign up, they are automatically registered for all the webinar sessions in the series.

Each webinar session can be scheduled at different dates and times and they can either be live or recorded.

You can also run an online summit using a series webinar, by adding different sets of Presenters to each Live session.

Live Series Webinar

Enjoy real-time interaction in a live webinar session with engagement tools available in the Studio. You can also share your screen, present slideshows, play videos, or have a discussion with presenters. Live series webinars are automatically recorded for replay purposes.

Recorded Series Webinar

A recorded webinar session runs on its own automatically. There's no live chat for this type of webinar, but your attendees can post questions on the webinar page which you can answer directly via email. You can set up polls, offers, and handouts in advance for your attendees.


Hybrid Webinar

A Hybrid webinar allows you to broadcast a pre-recorded webinar as you interact with attendees in real-time.

As the host, you'll need to be in the Studio to start and run a Hybrid webinar and interact with your attendees.

While you cannot go live on camera with this type of webinar, you can chat with attendees live and answer their questions in the chat area as the pre-recorded video plays. You can set up polls, offers, and handouts in advance.
