How to Set Up an Automated Webinar
If you’re running live webinars and not using high-converting events to create an automated webinar funnel, you’re probably missing out on a ton of leads and sales.
Evergreen webinars (otherwise known as automated) are pre-created webinar funnels that work to generate leads and customers daily while leveraging your time. Our customers use their evergreen webinars to onboard customers, create evergreen courses, run automated sales funnels and marketing webinars, and more.
Creating evergreen webinars with EasyWebinar is simple. We can take your past event and convert them immediately into an automated webinar with more than nine different scheduling options. This will make it easy for you to turn your recording in a 24/7 sales funnel.

How to Setup an Automated Webinar – 5 Easy Steps
1. Log Into Your EasyWebinar Portal
The first step is logging into your EasyWebinar account so you can access past recordings or upload a new video that you want to automate.

2. Choose Your Webinar
The second step is to find a live video that you have already recorded inside the EasyWebinar portal that you want to use for automation. Ideally, you want to find a webinar that has the highest conversion rate so you can put it on autopilot for your audience. We make this easy to see once you get logged into your account and can view your past live webinars.
If you’re using a past live recording, click “Live” at the top of the menu bar. Find your perfect webinar from the past, then hit “Edit webinar” and toggle the event type from “Live” to “Automated” and hit save at the top right-hand corner. This will then move your recording to the automated tab on the menu.
The other option is that you can upload a different webinar recording that wasn’t previously live as well. For example, you could convert Google hangouts on air video into our platform.
In general, it’s best to run live events, record them, study the metrics, and then convert into automated events. This will help make sure you’re not running paid traffic to a webinar that didn’t convert well (ex. Bad webinar script, tech issues, poor audience engagement, etc.).
3. Edit Your Webinar
One of the many benefits of automated webinars is the amount of flexibility that you have with the event. It gives attendees more options and it also gives you more freedom.
As you probably know if you’ve run a live event, it’s hard to get people to show up at the same time. With a pre-recorded webinar, you won’t ever have to worry about that again.
Time Zone and Webinar Schedule
Once you have the recording that you want to automate, step three is picking the correct time zone and event schedule for your audience. If you’re on PST and you have a worldwide audience, it’s tough to schedule with someone in Europe. Automated webinars fix this problem.
Not only will it stream out at a specific time, but it will stream in real-time. So if someone shows up late to your event, they are missing some of the presentations. This real-time streaming offered by EasyWebinar creates urgency and commitment to attend the webinar live (even though it’s automated).
Don’t worry, we never trick your audience into believing it’s live. Also, when hosting a webinar live, it’s important to upload an event that you don’t mention specific dates or position it as live training.
Choose the Schedule
The next step is to pick your evergreen schedule from our webinar template. With our software, we make it easy to run your webinars whenever you want. You can choose them once a day, a few times per week or even a few times per day.
The main things you need to schedule are:
- Event time zone
- Choose one-time or recurring event
- Choose event frequency (every day, specific dates or selected days of the week)
- Start date and end date (if needed)
Some of our advanced settings include:
- Split date and time
- Enable in-time registration
- In-time registration intervals
- Event language
- Date format
- Number of schedules available for registration
All of these features give you a ton of control over your automated schedule. Also, don’t worry, you can easily edit these fields in the future if needed.
Update Webinar Details
When you host webinars, live or automated, you can easily edit your webinar registration page, thank you page, event page, webinar replay page, and event integrations, and more. Hit save and you will create a webinar that is ready to run on autopilot.
Once all of these features are set, it’s time to get people to your registration page.
4. Drive Traffic to Your Evergreen Webinar
Once everything is set and ready to go, it’s time to get people to sign up for your webinar. You can do this by running paid ads on social media or using platforms like LinkedIn to promote organically.
5. Test and Analyze Your Webinar
The final step is to analyze and test what’s working. Once you have an automated funnel up and running, make sure to always measure your results. Inside the EasyWebinar dashboard, review the metrics so you can learn from your webinars and tweak as needed.

Why You Should Setup an Automated Webinar
Besides these three examples of our clients who are crushing it with automation, here are some of the reasons you should automate as well.
Look and Feel of Live Webinars
That stream in real-time to have the look and feel and experience of a live event. Not only will it stream out at a specific time, but it will actually stream in real-time, so if someone comes late they are missing some of the presentations.
This real-time streaming creates urgency in your marketing and commitment for them to show up to the event. This is something that video conferencing simply can’t create if you’re using a tool like Zoom.
Reach a Larger Audience
By streaming in your attendee’s local timezone. If you’ve heard about automated webinars, you haven’t seen them like this. EasyWebinar’s powerful system can stream an event to show in your attendee’s local timezone with the look and feel of a live event.
So if you have a worldwide audience, your events can show up to that audience at a time that is convenient for them.
