Of course, being a top-notch marketing and knowledge commerce platform, you can host webinars on Kartra.

However, you’ll have to use a third-party product integrated with Kartra since the platform doesn’t have built-in webinar functionality.

Instead, Kartra users can integrate Kartra with WebinarJam, a first-rate webinar tool specially chosen for Kartra integration.

In this article, we’ll discuss how to integrate Kartra and WebinarJam.

Kartra Webinars

How to Host Webinars on Kartra

Although Kartra doesn’t offer webinar hosting, the platform has all the features you need to market webinars and convert leads to customers.

If you have used Kartra for a while and trust the platform to accelerate your business, you can trust WebinarJam.

This deserved trust is because both come from the same company, Genesis Digital. So, the two integrate seamlessly. WebinarJam integrates with Kartra tools to build your e-mail list, track, and create autoresponders.

Also, you can embed your live webinars on your website, so visitors to your website can get a glimpse of what you are doing.

Hosting Webinars on Kartra Using WebinarJam

Integrating WebinarJam and Kartra will help you increase your webinar registrations and enable you to reach thousands of existing and potential customers.

You can link your webinar registrants with your Kartra autoresponder, which will send “smart” e-mails based on their WebinarJam interactions.

WebinarJam Pricing

Although WebinarJam also comes from Genesis Digital, it is a separate software package with additional subscription costs.

If webinars are a key part of your business, you’ll find it well worthwhile.

Still, we considered it important to flesh out the plans and costs for WebinarJam as distinct from Kartra so that you have the clearest possible picture.

WebinarJam offers four plans:

  • Starter, which allows 100 Attendees for $39 / month
  • Basic, which allows 500 Attendees at $79 / month
  • Professional, with 2,000 Attendees at $229 / month
  • Enterprise with 5,000 Attendees at $379 / month. 

All of WebinarJam’s plans bill annually.

Using Kartra as a Webinar Registration Page

To customize your webinar registration page to look like all your other Kartra pages, follow these instructions:

  1. Create a new webinar inside WebinarJam, but don’t configure it completely; you can do that later.
  2. Select “API custom integrations,” Your Member ID and password will appear. Highlight them and copy and paste them somewhere else in a safe place.
  3. In Kartra, go to “My Pages” and create a new page. Next, select and click “Create new page.” Then, create your WebinarJam registration page with the Kartra Page Builder
  4. Activate the visitor’s button to register for your webinar:
  • Click on the pencil icon in the bottom right
  • Select “Link” from the left-hand menu
  • Click “Pop a webinar registration form.”

Put in “Member ID” and “Webicode” for your webinar (the one that you collected in Step 2) and click “Apply.” Once the WebinarJam registration page is published, visitors click the “Register” button to open the WebinarJam registration form.
