I have stopped using other tools and now use Zoom exclusively. It is a video conferencing and web conferencing service that is simple to use, starts free and offers a very reasonable price point should you upgrade.
Sign up for a month, use it for your special event and cancel your account. Great software, great service.
How do you use it? Check out this video:
Which to choose?
While I like Zoom.us, I also have appreciated the power and simplicity of Join.me. Your best choice depends on your audience, size and whether they are more familiar or complete strangers. The more popular options may not have as many features but may be more comfortable for people to sign up. Test, test, test. There is more to a successful webinar than the software. Be sure to check the the speed of your Internet.
