4. Manage the settings of your webinar
After you schedule your webinar, you can manage settings such as adding an event staff, customizing the registration questions, and then inviting your attendees. To do so, click on Edit next to the setting.
– Configure your reminder emails
Configure your email settings to remind registrants of upcoming webinars. These reminder emails contain a registrant’s unique attendance URL, an important piece of information that identifies them.
At this time, your autoresponder (AWeber) cannot send these emails. We recommend you configure at least one of these emails to be sent directly from GoToWebinar.
To set up the reminder email, click on Edit next to the Reminder Email setting.
Generally, we like to configure the reminder emails to be sent out one week, one day and one hour before a webinar. Check off the boxes next to the times that you would like to send a reminder email.
You can also send yourself a copy of the reminder email, so you have a record in your inbox.
Note: With the AWeber integration through Zapier, you can benefit from GoToWebinar by capturing subscribers who register for your webinar.
It means you can do follow up emails with AWeber and create an email list to convert them into paying customers.
