Overall Satisfaction with GoToWebinar

It is straightforward, but you still have to take some time to learn the ropes. I'm looking forward to using some of the more advanced features soon, like polls.
I use GoToWebinar to host free and paid webinars to introduce potential customers to concepts, ideas and training programmes. I specialise in marketing, including digital and content marketing, and also teach so love the chance to share and educate as part of the sales process.

I am the lead consultant in my business but I also host guest webinars, free and paid.

I chose GoToWebinar because I wanted a solution that would not break! Other software was unreliable and I have found this one to be really reliable, once you've learned how to use it. The email feature is a real bonus too, both for sign up and post-webinar.
  • Audience interaction via comments and questions
  • Recordings are really easy to find and share
  • You can brand your webinars and the image quality is really clear
  • I'd like it to be easier to import mailing lists into GoToWebinar, so people can sign up elsewhere too
  • If you have another device nearby on wi-fi it can interfere with the sound recording
  • It's not always easy to get the webinar started: on, share screen and record
Not as pretty, a bit more expensive but it works.
I can only talk about my limited experience but I think it's a great way to create a live interactive event, but also record it and share it for ever more.
