How to Embed a GoToWebinar Registration Form in WordPress

To speed things up, we’re going to use the webinar form template and then customize it with some additional questions. Here are the steps we’re going to work through:

  1. Install the WPForms Plugin
  2. Create Your Webinar in GoToWebinar
  3. Create Your Custom GoToWebinar Registration Form
  4. Connect WPForms to Zapier
  5. Connect GoToWebinar to Zapier
  6. Test Your Custom GoToWebinar Registration Form

First, let’s get the WPForms plugin set up so we can install the template pack.

Step 1: Install the WPForms Plugin

WPForms is the best form plugin for WordPress. It lets you create forms for any purpose using an easy drag and drop builder.

Start by installing the WPForms plugin on your website.

If you need help, take a look at this guide on how to install a plugin in WordPress.

Next, you can install the form templates pack addon for WPForms. This is optional, but using a form template will help to speed things up in the next step.

From the WordPress dashboard, click WPForms » Addons.

Activate the webinar template in WPForms addons

If you scroll down a little, you’ll see the Form Templates Pack. Click Install Addon to install and activate your form templates.

The switch on the Form Templates Pack item will turn green to show you it’s ready to use:

Great! Now we have WordPress set up, let’s go ahead and make our custom GoToWebinar registration form.

Step 2: Create Your Webinar in GoToWebinar

In GoToWebinar, you’ll need to create a webinar before you move on. Here’s a test webinar that we created:

Setting up a GoToWebinar event for a custom form

Within the webinar settings, you can create custom questions if you want to.

To show you how this works, we’ll ask 4 questions:

  • What product are you interested in?
  • What department do you work in?
  • What questions do you have for the speaker?
  • How did you hear about this webinar?

Remember: asking too many questions could be a barrier to conversions. If you don’t want to ask anything, it’s fine to skip the rest of this section.

To customize your registration questions in GoToWebinar, scroll down to the Registration section and click on it to expand it. Click on Edit in the panel that opens:

GoToWebinar registration form setup

Now you can add your custom questions by typing them in to the Create Custom Question box:

Custom question for GoToWebinar registration form

The other 3 questions are already set up for us, so that’s all we need to do.

Now we can create our custom GoToWebinar form. This will only take a few minutes because we won’t need to write any code.

Step 3: Create Your Custom GoToWebinar Registration Form

In this step, we’re going to make a custom GoToWebinar form in WordPress.

Start in the WordPress dashboard and click WPForms » Add New.

Add a new custom form in WPForms

Type a name for your form at the top of the form builder window:

Name your custom GoToWebinar form

Now scroll right down to the Additional Templates section. Search for ‘webinar’ and click the Webinar Registration Form template to open it.

Custom GoToWebinar form template

Now we’re ready to customize the form.

Remember the questions we set up in GoToWebinar? You’ll need to create one field to match each question.

To add a field for a question, just drag and drop it from the left-hand panel to the form preview on the right-hand side. Then change the label to match your custom question:

Add custom question to GoToWebinar form

We don’t want to force registrants to answer these questions because we don’t want to increase form abandonment rates. So we left the Required box unticked.

You could also add a country dropdown list if you don’t want to have a full address field on your form.

Now we have our finished form set up, let’s embed it in a web page. This is super easy and takes just a few clicks.

First, be sure to click Save at the top of the form builder.

Then click the Embed button just to the left.

Also, keep the WordPress dashboard open in a tab. We’ll need to switch back to WPForms in the next step.

Step 4: Connect WPForms to Zapier

Zapier is a service that connects different sites and services together. It lets you use one service to trigger an action in another.

If you use Zapier, you don’t need to use GoToWebinar connectors or APIs.

In a new tab, log in to your Zapier account, then go ahead and click Make a Zap.
