Add registrants from forms
Not only are they easy to set up, but forms are a great way to collect information about your customers while registering them for your events. Cut a step out of your event management workflow by automatically adding registrants to GoTo Webinar from your form submissions. That way, you can easily track of who's attending your events, no matter where they sign up.

Add webinar attendees to your email marketing
When people sign up to attend your events, it can be useful to stay in touch with them after. Maybe there's a follow-up event you're hosting, or you have a coupon to offer your attendees. No matter the reason, automation is the best way to keep in contact.
Individually emailing every person from an event or manually importing their email addresses into your email marketing tool limits how much follow-up you can do and makes it easy to make copy/paste errors. Instead, let Zapier automatically import the contact information of your webinar registrants or attendees into your favorite email marketing app to more easily scale your efforts and reduce errors.

Add registered webinar attendees to your CRM
Webinars are a great way to attract new customers or reengage existing ones, but keeping track of which stage of the funnel your attendees fall in can get tricky. Adding webinar registrants and attendees to your CRM is key to making sure everyone on your team knows what outreach customers have received—or still need to receive.
With Zapier, you can easily export these contacts to the CRM of your choice. You can also find and update current contacts in your CRM or add a tag to your contact to show they've attended a webinar. All of this data is useful for interacting with your customers in the future.

Analytics are the bread and butter of business, and GoTo Webinar is no exception. While GoTo Webinar does provide powerful in-app analytics, sometimes it's useful to export data into a spreadsheet for further use. For example, if some members of your team don't have access to GoTo Webinar or if you collect data from multiple sources in one spot, you might use a spreadsheet as a source of truth for your data.
