Embarking on a new journey as a webinar host? With a myriad of platforms available, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. However, once you find the perfect platform, such as Sequel, the process of hosting becomes both smooth and enjoyable. In this host training webinar, Ani, customer success manager at Sequel, shares valuable insights to help acclimate new users to the platform. Here's what you need to know:

1. The Importance of Pre-Live Green Room
The pre-live green room is an invaluable space for hosts and presenters to address any concerns, iron out last-minute details, and resolve potential technical issues. This safe space allows hosts to feel well-prepared and composed before going live.
2. Flexibility in Host Controls

With Sequel, hosts possess the power to move themselves and presenters on and off stage. They can also mute or disable cameras, giving them complete autonomy over the presentation's flow.

3. Support for Presenters

Presenters can move themselves backstage, but they will need the assistance of a host to return to the stage. This feature ensures a seamless and professional presentation without any unexpected hiccups.

4. Customizing the Virtual Stage

When going live, hosts can personalize the layout of the stage by changing views, adjusting film strip positions, and choosing whether to hide or show film strips. This flexibility allows for tailor-made presentations that cater to various screen sizes and preferences.

5. Sharing Media Files

Sequel offers options for sharing media files during presentations. Speakers can either utilize content from external sources like YouTube or Vimeo or upload their own files from their devices. For a better user experience, it is advisable to use Vimeo over YouTube to avoid ad interruptions.

In summary, mastering the art of hosting webinars on the Sequel platform requires patience, practice, and the willingness to learn. By understanding and utilizing the platform's features, you can create engaging and professional webinars that keep your audience captivated. Happy hosting!
