Webinars allow you to reach hundreds of colleagues at once, including people who live in different countries or who couldn’t make it to a live event. Through webinars, you can invite guest speakers and share knowledge with the rest of your company. Webinars can be challenging to organize, but with a structured Work OS, you can host your first webinar or build on the experiences of the previous one.
In this article, you’ll learn what to include in your webinar plan and how monday.com’s Work OS simplifies the process. We’ll share a webinar plan template, plus a few related templates that you can use for various projects. We’ll also discuss making post-webinar plans so you get the most out of your event.
What is a webinar plan template?
A webinar plan template provides a workspace for you to plan and schedule events, communicate with colleagues, and track your budget. These templates collect information and convert it into charts, graphs, and numerical data. You can quickly view your progress on the event dashboard, then go in-depth with your event planning and marketing campaign. The calendar view allows you to track deadlines and view each project’s timeline. Webinar plan templates also provide customizable forms so you can send email invitations and plan for attendees. You can even share the form with social media posts to reach your audience.
Use a webinar plan template to keep your project on track.
Why use a webinar plan template
A webinar plan template provides an instant workspace for your upcoming event. No need to figure out a layout yourself, try to combine your plan with other apps, or switch between pages. The template provides everything you need, including charts, graphs, forms, calendars, and tools to help you when you’re promoting your webinar. The template also provides a table where you can add various metrics such as progress bars, project steps, completion status, and employees assigned to each step. You can also view tables with names and contact information from people who signed up for the event.

Webinar plan templates help you lay out all the details of your planned event, from the beginning to the end and beyond.
Your webinar plan may include:

- A timeline for the project that could include setting goals, assigning tasks to colleagues, completing each step, and rehearsing for the webinar
- Your budget and how much you spend through each project phase
- A marketing strategy that may include email invitations and social media posts
- A timeline for the webinar itself, which could involve preparation, time allotted for each presentation, breaks, and a networking period at the end
- The post-webinar plan for assessing your performance and following up with potential clients

Frequently asked questions
How do you create a webinar plan?
Plan your webinar by listing the topics that you want to cover, then break them into smaller topics so you can go into more detail or provide specific examples. Consider your target audience and what you need to cover. Set aside a designated time for each webinar topic and leave time for questions at the end.
How do you organize a webinar checklist?
Organize your webinar checklist with sections to keep everything organized. For example, you could start with a section called “Pre-planning,” then include setting the date, choosing a platform, and other tasks. Other sections could include setting up open registration, creating the presentation, or letting colleagues know about the webinar.
Start planning your next webinar
