Live Webinar

A live webinar is an online presentation that’s hosted real-time. Use your mic and camera to personally deliver your content to your audience. It is automatically recorded and stored in Media Manager, ready to be downloaded and/or shared. By default, a replay will be available to your registrants after each webinar.

While your video and audio are being broadcasted live for your audience to watch, you can interact with them through the Chat area, as well as the Questions and Polls area. Have conversations, ask questions, and answer theirs real-time. You can also set up an offer to be displayed during the webinar in the Offers area.

Recurring Live Webinar

A recurring live webinar is basically a live webinar that is hosted on several different dates and/or times specified by you, the host. You can set several dates and/or times at once when creating or editing a recurring live webinar. The registration page of a recurring live webinar shows a drop-down menu of the available dates/times so that people can choose when they want to attend and then register for it. If they want to attend to two or more of the webinar schedules, they can register for them individually.

Pre-Recorded Webinars

WebinarNinja also allows you to run a webinar using a pre-recorded video for your audience to watch rather than a live video feed. You can use recordings from your previous live webinars stored in Media Manager or videos that you’ve already uploaded to a 3rd-party video hosting site (Wistia, Youtube, Vimeo, etc). Note that videos cannot be uploaded to the platform.

If you don’t have one already, you can pre-record a webinar instead.

In the studio, you will find a place to enter your video’s URL or embed code instead of seeing your live video feed as in a live webinar.

Evergreen Webinar

An evergreen webinar is a type of webinar wherein a pre-recorded video is embedded on the webinar page for your audience to watch. The Chat, Questions, and Polls areas are unavailable for this type of webinar, but you can still set up an offer to be displayed during the webinar in the Offers area. You do not have to be online for an evergreen webinar to run.

Anytime Access Webinar

An anytime access webinar is similar to an evergreen webinar.
