Start Your Live Webinar

Ready? Here’s how to get your live webinar started.

Updated over a week ago

Once your webinar is set up and published, and your registrants have arrived, getting started is a snap.

We recommend entering the webinar Studio about 15 - 30 minutes before the scheduled time, to familiarize and prepare.

Prior to the start of your webinar, be sure to configure your mic and camera. Then, take the following steps:

Step 1: Navigate to the webinar studio.

On the My Webinars page, find the webinar you wish to start and click Enter Studio to the right of the webinar.

For live webinars in a series, click Show All, then click the play icon to the right of the individual webinar to enter the studio.

Step 2: Test your devices.

A window will pop up, in which you can test your devices. Here you'll find the microphone meter and camera preview, as well as the Test button for your audio output.

When you’re all set and ready to meet your audience, click Enter Studio.

Step 3: Starting the webinar.

Once you're ready, click Start Broadcast, found in the upper right corner of the video screen. This will automatically start recording your webinar.

Please note that you can only start the broadcast once the webinar is published, from up to 30 minutes before the start time. Beyond 30 minutes, the Start Broadcast is grayed out.

Clicking Start Broadcast before the scheduled time will require confirmation, as shown below. Once you start broadcasting, you will not be able to restart.

Note: If you want to see how everything works before your live webinar, we suggest creating a test webinar first.

We recommend taking a look at how to use the questions area, polls area, and the offers area. More guidance on running webinars is available here.

Step 4: Ending the webinar.

When you’re all done, simply click Stop Broadcast.
