Create a "Watch Now" Webinar

An on-demand access to your webinar!

Updated over a week ago

Ready to generate leads and sales while you're napping or watching Breaking Bad again? Create an automated webinar that registrants can "attend" whenever!

You can use a YouTube video, upload a video from your computer, or select a recording from past live webinars.

Pro-tip though: we recommend recording videos specifically for automation, rather than repackaging old live stuff.

From My Webinars, click Create Webinar in the top right area of the page.

Select the type of webinar you prefer. In this case, Automated.

Enter a webinar title then set the webinar registration as free or paid. For a paid webinar, a Stripe account is required.

Choose how you want to deliver your webinar, whether Watch Now or Both. This cannot be changed later on.

Select Watch Now to make it immediately available. The end date you choose will not be displayed on the registration page.

Or do Both! You can set it up to run every day, week, hour, or month in addition to the option to watch immediately.

This allows your registrants to choose to register for the webinar to either watch immediately or watch on certain dates and times.

On the registration page, there will be a drop-down from which people can choose when to watch the webinar.

Back to editing the webinar, click Add Video Files and choose a video to use on the webinar. A window will pop up where you can choose videos from your Media Library.

You can also add or upload a new video instead by clicking Add New Video on the same popup window.

When adding a video from YouTube, you can set a start and end time to use only a part of the video. Note that the YouTube video must be public or unlisted, not private.

Lastly, choose if you want player controls available for your registrants during playback.

When you're all set, click Create Webinar.

Your registration page will look like this.
