The Benefits of using the platform
Zoom was originally started as an application for creating, managing and participating in online video conferences. Now it’s set its sights on events with the release of its new platform, On Zoom. With this new software platform and marketplace for online events, customers are now able to reserve rooms and invite participants ahead of time as well as participate from any device or location with access to internet.
User Experience – What does it look like?
To create an event, simply enter your email and fill out the form. You’ll be taken through a few simple steps where you can select what type of event you want to hold (whether it’s live webinar, corporate training, or in-person workshop) and then select one of our themes like Modern Management Techniques or Sustainability-themed Tools. Then all you have to do is invite participants who can watch in person or over video chat, and promote it with posts on social media, articles on blogs or anything else that helps you reach people interested in the topic.
Event participants get access by registering with their name and email.
Creating an Event

- Next up is choosing the type of program that best fits with what you want to accomplish and we have lots of options below including Webinars, Google Hangouts, Twitter Chats and more!
Promoting Your Event
On Zoom is an excellent tool for organizing and hosting events, as it makes all the necessary resources available in one place. This will take a lot of the pressure off of you to find, organize, and purchase equipment that might not be immediately needed. There are many ways that you can use the services available through On Zoom: adding new features, reserving equipment, and scheduling presentations.
Working with Speakers
Speakers are an important part of any event, but it can be difficult to find the right person for the job. That’s where On Zoom comes in. Not only does this new platform let you search and apply for speakers who match your criteria, but it also lets you see their past talks, reviews and recommendations all in one place. You can then have a conference call with the potential speaker right from the site.
Keeping Control Over the Event Space
It’s always smart to keep control over the space where your event is going on, because once you give up that control, it’s not easy to get it back. So let’s talk about how On Zoom lets you keep everything in house so you can have more control and have a successful event.
