Setting up Zoho Webinar Integration

Webinars help you generate quality leads and expand your reach globally. It is a live presentation where you can educate your participants about your product, answer questions or engage them with polls. You can also monitor the ROI for the webinar campaign, download webinar reports, and analyze the webinar's performance.

Integrating Zoho Webinar with CRM lets you:

  • Create webinars from the Campaigns module
  • Invite leads and contacts to the Webinar from CRM
  • Create polls from CRM.
  • View discussions with your participants.

You can add CRM users to Zoho Webinar that allows them to create webinars from Zoho CRM.

Set Reminder
You can set the time when the host and the participants should receive a reminder about the webinar.

Push registered participants in Webinar
The registrants who are not part of the CRM account can be added as leads or contacts into the CRM.

Update Member Status 
The member status of the participants can be synced with that of the webinar's service status. For example, if the service status is 'attended' then you can specify if the member status of the participants should automatically be changed to 'planned' or 'invited'. By syncing the statuses you will not have to update a participant's member status manually.

The service status can be selected as either invited, registered or attended. You can choose a corresponding member status as: planned, invited, sent, received, opened, responded, bounced or opted-out. You can also choose not to sync the member status with service status.
