What kinds of event widgets can I create on BigMarker?
On BigMarker, you can create and embed an event registration widget in your website.
Once your event has begun, and sessions have gone live, this widget automatically converts to a "Live Now" widget that links to your live event sessions.
And once the event has concluded, the widget converts to a recording widget that contains a video of the session recording. This way, your registration widget continues to collect attendees and viewers even after registration has ended.
Examples of all three widget types are below:
How can I create an event widget on BigMarker?
To add a registration widget to your website, log into your BigMarker event channel and select your series dashboard, which is listed under Series.
In the left-hand menu, select Registration Widget.
This leads to an editor in which you can customize your widget's design, text and call to action links. All changes are immediately reflected in a preview box just right of the editor.
- Sub Titles: The text on the top of the widget, above the image, is the sub title. In the first three text boxes, you can change the sub titles for each of the three widget types.
- Button Text: This refers to the text of the call-to-action (CTA) button on each widget, which links to a destination within your virtual event. In the next three text boxes, you can change the CTA button text for each of the three widget types.
- Widget Width and Height: Select your widget's width and height in pixels.
- Embed type: Next, decide whether to embed your widget via iFrame or direct embed. iFrame widgets are more compatible with the dimensions of your event website, but direct embeds are required to track your widget's traffic and referral activity on Google Analytics or similar platforms.
Finish by uploading an image and choosing the widget's background, button, link and text colors. Note that the widget image must be 288 x 250 pixels.
Copy the embed code to your clipboard, then click Save to complete. Once you paste this code to your website, the widget will display with the design and specifications you set here.
