The WebinarNinja Academy
As the "Netflix of webinars", it gives you on-demand access to webinar training topics ranging from sales & marketing to content creation & engagement techniques.
Access to The WebinarNinja Academy is included with every WebinarNinja plan. Just click the 🎓 menu icon on the left when you sign into your account.
Live Video Multi-streaming
We have upgraded WebinarNinja to Live Video Multi-Streaming. This means when a you stream your live broadcast we will produce several live streams and give each of your attendees the stream that best matches their internet connection quality. Without multi-streaming, your broadcast quality can be dragged down by an attendee's poor connection.
Multi-streaming is built-in and there is nothing for you to switch on. If you would like to utilize multi-streaming, just use a Google Chrome browser when you host your webinars. Multi-streaming is the latest tech in live WebRTC videos and is optimized for Google Chrome. Your attendees can use any browser they like.
New auto-detect timezone magic 💫
We've now made it super simple for your registrants to know exactly when your webinar is in their local timezone.
When people visit a WebinarNinja registration page, no matter where they are in the world, they will see a handy link under the webinar date and time. Clicking the link will allow the person to immediately see the webinar/date time in their local time on the same registration page. Click here for more info.
We now integrate with Drip
We worked closely with the Drip team to make sure we fully integrate directly with Drip. Now, you can add all your webinar registrants directly to your Drip account right inside of WebinarNinja! Click here for a guide to integrating with Drip.
Sharing your webinar just got easier
We re-engineered how you find your webinar links and share them with others to make it super convenient. Grab your webinar link and share it with others in one easy location on a My Webinars card. Click here to learn more.
Subscriber Consent Options (GDPR compliance)
If you're in the EU, you're probably jumping for joy that we just added this feature. Yup! We just turned that GDPR headache into a cool breeze. Now you can ask for email and marketing consent (GDPR policy) to all your registrants when they register. Best of all, once they do consent, they never see the consent page again, making all their future registrations with you seamless. The letters GDPR never looked so good on a screen! Here's a guide for your reference.
Enhanced Video & Audio
We have increased video resolutions and audio bit rates to even higher levels! That's nerd speak for you and your attendees will have a smoother, more crystal clear experience every time you run a webinar.
