Default Anyone Know Of A Good Webinar Platform?

Hi guys,

I'm starting to experiment with hosting webinars and I'm overwhelmed by so many options out there. I've tried a few but haven't been able to find one to suit my needs (maybe it doesn't exist, ha!)

Anyway, does anyone here have some recommendations for a platform I can use to get started. I'll need to be able to:

1. Gather sign up names (so I can ask them to join my mailing list)
2. Track who signs up
3. Host webinar and share my screen
4. Provide a recording for my webinar
5. Expand my plan as needed if lots of people sign up

Any recommendations? I'm especially interested in pay as you go plans (if they exist).

Thanks!

Hi ActionableBiz!

I have had personal experience with Go To Webinar. Worked like a charm!

Now, having said that, I don't like their pricing. They have a 'Meeting' platform that I think is up to 15 people. The Webinar is up to (I think) 1,000. Problem is that's a $99 a month investment the last time I used it.

However, I believe they let you SUSPEND your account. By that, I think they stop billing if you don't use it for a few months; YOU have to set up the suspension... but that's better than paying when you're not using.

They do make perfect recordings (avi files) that you can do a lot with. I have used them to sell as an encore of a Webinar.

With respect to getting those people on your list, there's other ways to do that. I wouldn't worry about any system to get people on my list. You can do that through a registration page.

Hope this helps! Good luck! By the way... keep us posted on the webinars; Always interested!

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for the recommendation. Its so hard to decide on a reliable platform when there are so many available! So I really appreciate your input.

I have two on my top list right now GoToWebinar and MeetingBurner.

MeetingBurner sounds cool but it has a limit of 50 attendees only. Maybe that's not a bad thing when I'm starting out.

I'll keep you all posted on what I find.

You know...funny thing happened to me on the way to work.... uh... I was snooping around because we need a webinar solution in the near future too. And you know that things are always changing.

I found GVO Conference for less then $10 a month to get started. The nice thing I like about this solution is it seems there is NO DOWNLOAD which makes it easier for people attending to log on. (Hate when things get complicated with downloads and then things go wrong.)

I have NOT used this service; I am NOT an affiliate of this service. I am also not sure if I should be posting a link...but for the good of helping, here we go.

Good luck and I hope this helps!
