Webinar Software Overview

What is Webinar Software?

The three main use cases for webinar software are internal communications (one to many), lead generation, and training. In addition to the live presentation, a recorded video of the presentation is often distributed later on. This can be used as content for newsletters, email drip campaigns, etc. The key difference between webinar software and web conferencing software is that webinars are better suited for large online meetings that have a presentation format. Web conferencing software is better suited for smaller online meetings, where each participant is expected to participate.


In addition to point solutions like GoToWebinar and Webinato, webinar capabilities are also provided by some web conferencing platforms, along with screen sharing, video calls, etc., and by some content marketing tools that also cover video and enterprise TV streaming. These combination platforms are sometimes called online events software.

Webinar Software Features & Capabilities

Performance & Compatibility

Most of these capabilities are crucial for the best webinar software. They ensure that online events can happen on time, and can be run/accessed from a variety of devices and operating systems. In terms of performance and compatibility, webinar software should:

  • Deliver high-quality audio

  • Be compatible with multiple browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer)

  • Be compatible with multiple operating systems (Linux, OS X, Windows)

  • Support mobile access

Planning & Running the Event

These features allow hosts to schedule, run, and record the webinar and allow attendees to register and view the webinar. Event registration is the main differentiator here from web conferencing tools, which use individual invitations sent by an organizer rather than a registration form.

  • Event registration flow

  • Calendar integration (for both presenters and attendees)

  • Webinar recording

  • Slideshow

Collaboration (Audience Participation)

Webinars include a degree of audience participation, but usually "collaboration" is more structured than with web conferences and other kinds of online events, due to the one-to-many format of webinars. Features in this group allow presenters to distribute materials to the audience as a whole, or allow individual attendees to submit questions, comments, and opinions individually to presenters:

  • Audience polling

  • Q&A

  • Handouts

Webinar Software Comparisons

Buyers should prioritize the following attributes while evaluating webinar software:

1. Reliability: Webinars may be a lead generation mechanism. For this reason, it is very important that the platform be reliable and available at the time of the event.

2. Audio/video quality: If the webinar tool does not facilitate high-quality audio and video, attendees may not be able to understand the content of the webinar. Also, the recording will need significant editing in order to be usable.

3. Ease of use & adoption: How easy is it for administrators to set up and run a webinar? How easy is it for panelists or co-presenters to participate? Is it easy for attendees to sign in and view the webinar, and can they interact with presenters (by sending in questions, etc.)?

Pricing Information

Pricing is typically by both number of presenters and number of attendees. Software designed to serve fewer than 50 attendees, usually costs in the $25 to $50 range per month. Enterprise-level products that can support up to 1,000 attendees can cost upwards of $500 per month.
