Create your webinar in GoToWebinar

Now give your webinar a title, write a description of the meeting (which will be used in your webinar invitation email and registration page), choose the type of session, and select the date, time, and time zone for your webinar. When you are done, select Schedule.

Manage the settings of your webinar

After you schedule your webinar, you can manage the settings for your webinar by adding an event staff, customizing the registration questions, creating a poll to use during the webinar, 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, HubSpot 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, users of the integration configure the reminder email to be sent out one hour before a webinar and then they send all other emails, such as a follow-up message, through HubSpot. 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.
