What do you use for Webinars?

8 replies
Been trying to do more interactive stuff recently, one of which is webinars - did a first one with a partner last week and they're insanely fun.

At the moment we're looking for just text based, kind of like a huge chatroom where we talk (type, really) about a topic and then viewers can ask questions, put in their own points etc. We used Ustream for the first but while it went well, a big problem is they don't keep conversation history so we couldn't copy and paste it to send to people that missed the webinar.

Any help? I know a few on here do webinars, I'm basically just looking for a way to setup a free to attend online chatroom of sorts, which doesn't require people to download anything and keeps history of the entire conversation. If I can't find anything will probably have to go with GoToWebinar $100/month option but I'm hoping someone on here has a way to save $1,200 a year for what we want, which is something very simple.

Thanks in advance for any help

    webex.com is $50/month for many (most?) needs

    vyew.com has a free option, but also has some paid options.

    dimdim is another option you may want to go with. They have free and paid options.

    Do you want to make successes or excuses? Success? Alright then... See what's in store for you....

      I did an extensive research and decided on gotowebinar.com which is what I use now.

      A close second for a free option is dimdim. It is good if you will have a small group.

          One quick point with using gotowebinar, if you can't afford it, then you can do some type of partnership arrangement with a friend and have them to pay half if not all the fee.

          Then the both of you can use it.

    I like Gotowebinar. It's a proven winner and it's used a lot. You should sign up for the 30 day free trial. Then you can cancel if you don't want it. In a couple weeks of cancellation, they will email you with a discounted offer. That's what happened to me and I love using them. Not to mention, you can record your webinars.
