The Glisser platform now offers monetization options to generate revenue from your events. Glisser can offer opportunities for sponsors to upload videos, images and hyperlinks to appear in the Waiting Room or Lobby Area within events and individual sessions. This raises valuable sponsor awareness to a captive and targeted audience alongside driving traffic to a specified URL.
You can set up the monetization options in either a session or an event on the Glisser platform.
Setting up within a session
If you are setting this up within a session then you need to click on Edit Session or Add Session and select the Monetization menu. Once this is selected you’ll have a Waiting Room Content option where you can turn the orange toggle on.
Here you can select a video, image or game (the game option is currently only available in beta). To upload a video, you can choose either YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia and a URL. Alternatively, to upload an image, you can upload an external image and a URL.
Once this is set up, the audience will then see either the video or the image in the Waiting Room which can be clicked on to be taken through to the specified URL.
Setting up within an event
Setting up the monetization options for an event is slightly different to a session, you’ll need to select the Event and click on Manage Event. The same Monetization menu will appear but once you open it you’ll see the Welcome Video option where a video can be uploaded. The audience will view this video as soon as they enter the event.
Below the Welcome Video toggle you will see an option for the Lobby Content, if you select this then you can upload either a video or image (the game option is not available for events, it is available for individual sessions only). If you choose to upload an image you will see there is an option to select External or Internal Clickable Links. External links are for any external URL but for internal links, you will be able to link to any of the existing sessions within your Event.
Once this is all set up, the audience can then view the Welcome Video when they log into the event and the Lobby Content on the bottom left hand side of the screen.
