Create an Event with ReadyTalk


First set up your event in the ReadyTalk conference center. If you need help, check out the ReadyTalk Resource Center. When choosing the registration type, select pre-register before the meeting. If you select register at time of meeting, Marketo will not capture a Registered status for your people and will only pull in a person status of Attended after the webinar concludes.

Leave notify me of new registrations via email unchecked.

If you’re using ReadyTalk to send confirmation emails, you’ll need to also add a description. Save your event in ReadyTalk when you’re finished.


To schedule an Operator Assisted Event, click the Request Event Services link located on the left side of your Conference Center home screen to schedule an event with our Events Team.

Now you’re ready to link your event to Marketo.

  1. Select your event, then click Event Actions, and finally Event Settings.


    The channel type of the event selected must be webinar.

  2. Under Event Partner, select ReadyTalk.

  3. Under Login, select your ReadyTalk login.

  4. Under Event, select the event you want to link then click Save.

    Nice! Your event is now synced.


    The fields Marketo sends over are: First Name, Last Name, Email Address.


    To populate your confirmation email with this unique URL, use the following token in your email: {{member.webinar url}}. When the confirmation URL is sent out, this token automatically resolves to the person’s unique confirmation URL.

    Set your confirmation email to Operational to ensure that people who register, who might be unsubscribed, receive their confirmation information.


    Avoid using nested email programs to send out your confirmation emails. Use the event program’s smart campaign instead, as shown above.


    It can take up to 48 hours for the data to appear in Marketo. If after waiting that long you still don’t see anything, select Refresh from Webinar Provider from the Event Actions menu in the Summary tab of your event.

Viewing the Schedule

In the program schedule view, click the calendar entry for your event. You can see the schedule on the right side of the screen!

People who sign up for your webinar will get pushed to your webinar provider via the Change Program Status flow step when the New Status is set to “Registered.” No other status will push the person over. Also, be sure to make Change Program Status flow step #1, and Send Email flow step #2.
