Quick Guide to Live Streaming a Webinar on your Event Website

 

The Biggest Disadvantage of Webinar Platforms
For hosting virtual events, organizers generally use a webinar platform like Zoom and share a link to the webinar on their event website. This setup, however, means participants have to check-in to sessions on your event website. Then they’re redirected to the associated Zoom webinar that would open in a Zoom desktop client. Participants then flock back to the site and check-in to another session and are redirected again to the associated Zoom webinar. So, they have to switch between the website and the webinar platform continuously.

The Biggest Advantage of Live-Streaming
As a better alternative, if you want to improve the participants’ experience, so they do not have to move out of the website and go to Zoom to watch the webinar for each session, you can Livestream webinars on your website. This setup lets you offer a branded user experience, ability to monetize through multiple channels and provide audience engagement tools to participants and exhibitors right within the website.
