Free Public Webinar

Webinars can be an effective way to capture new leads to grow your business. We now support a new type of event called Free Public Webinar. These are different from regular events because attendees can register for these events with only their email address -- they do not need to be an active member in your studio prior to registering. This article contains everything you need to know to set up your first free public webinar.

Watch the tutorial, or follow the step-by-step guide below.


To create a free public webinar head to your Calendar > Add Event.

Step 1: Select the Event type as "Collaborative Group Event"

(Note: For free public events, these are hosted on Zoom, if you have Zoom Webinar you can select Broadcast as an event type )

Enter the additional details such as Event Name, Date, Start Time, and Duration.

Step 2: Toggle "Is this a free webinar? (lead capture event)" to YES. You will have the option to require first and last names. This means that those who want to attend will need to enter these details to register for the event.

(Note: Free public events are run on Zoom and will limit the number of registrants to the limit of your Zoom plan. )
​(Note: Make Recording Available isn't available for webinars. However you can still create a recording and send it to participants after).


Step 3 (optional): If you have integrated with Mailchimp/Convertkit you can select the list you would like your registrants to be filtered into and apply tags.

Note: If you use Zoom's practice session, it will also start streaming to Marvelous.


On the student side, they will see the event inside the calendar. To register they would click the event in the calendar or follow a direct link from an ad to the event.

Next, they would enter the necessary details then click Register for Event.

(Note: students can register for this without creating an account first)

Once registered, attendees will receive a confirmation email with a link to the event for them to join at the appropriate time. They will also receive event reminders 60 minute and 30 minutes prior to the event.
