Best practices and tips for creating free webinars with Certifier certificate

Practical tips for issuing certificates will vary depending on the specifics of your webinar, including its form, duration, or even your niche. However, some tips on how to create a webinar certificate that looks professional and is easy to distribute and redeem can include:

Make sure your certificate design is visually appealing and easy to read

Your webinar certificate should be clear and neat. Get rid of unnecessary information – it will clutter the document. Treat the certificate as your business card. As mentioned before, the certificate can be a means of promotion for your webinars and free courses. So take advantage of that aspect and make your certificate attractive.

Include all of the necessary information

Your name, the name of the webinar, the date the webinar took place, and the name and digital signature of the presenter – all this information is important. They highlight the credibility of completing the webinar. It is vital while attaching to an email or showing the certificate to the public, for example, on social media.

Make sure your certificate is in a printable format (PDF or JPEG)

Speaking of showing the certificate to someone. A format suitable for printing will be comfortable and enable the recipient to print the certificate easily and, for example, attach it to the resume. The right format seems to be a small thing but remember that the devil is in the details.

Make it easy for recipients to redeem their certificates

And again, a small thing, but it makes a difference. People love to share their achievements, so why not make it easy to distribute their certificates? Let them share their happiness of completing the webinar in an easy and simple way. In addition, this aspect would increase the media traffic and promote your webinar.

Get the general idea

Think about the topic of your upcoming live webinars. What are the typical images and associations coming to your mind at first? If you have some in your head, look in the ready made template gallery and search for the one that meets your needs – maybe the solution can be found there.


If nothing covers your idea, check the simplest webinar templates. You can google free images or pictures that reflect the topic of your online event or add some little touch to your certificate. Try to download the pictures to your computer. Then, upload them directly into your certificate. Place the picture wherever you want.

Use dynamic attributes

Once again, dynamic attributes are the tool to generate further certificates by adding the data automatically. Data such as issuer name, issuer email, issuer support email, issue date, certificate UUID, group name, recipient name, and recipient email are put on a certificate in the right place. Thanks to that, we are able to customize the email about receiving the certificate.

Of course, it depends on the issuer what information is relevant and which of these the certificate should include. The information will be automatically placed on the certificate after providing the data.


Issuing digital certificates would bring you and the webinar attendees fulfillment and motivation. The attendees put effort into participating. They gained knowledge and took the time, and at the end of the journey, they received proof and rewards due to their work and sacrifices after completing webinars.

So why not do that and create successful webinar courses with certificate?

Gain an advantage and add quality to your online seminars. You never know, maybe certification would be the decisive aspect of whether to participate in your webinar.

Do not hesitate, Certifier will equip you with amazing certificates in less than 15 minutes. Sign up for a free Certifier trial today!
