What To Be Aware Of When Choosing Free Webinar Software

By Ken Morrison

Webinar software will likely play an important role at one time or another if you have your own small business. Many people do not realize that this does not have to be a costly investment. There is in fact low cost or even free programs that are available depending on how many attendees there will be.

Often users will find that even the programs offered for free will allow them to use screen sharing software. They will also include analytic charts and easy, one click recording and sharing of the event. Some features may require that you upgrade to a paying account. This will depend on the program you choose.

Some programs will allow you to have as many as 200 attendees free of charge. Instead of payment, you and your attendees may be subjected to ads running along the bottom of the screen. If you are able to adjust to the advertisements, then you may find this software meets your needs.

Alternatively, with the launch of some sites where you are able to connect with peers and customers, a webinar may not always be necessary. You may instead choose to run a group chat session through one of these sites. If your group is small enough, this may be the best solution.

Depending on the web browser that you use, you may also find simple plug-ins that will work to allow web-conferencing. By doing something as simple as downloading and installing the plug-in you will be in a conference in just a matter of a few minutes. When you use these plug-ins you may find that you can use other web pages as part of your conference.

Do your research before choosing one program over another. This will help ensure you meet the needs of your company. The web conferencing software will also help you to ensure that you are receiving the features that are most important.
