  1. Hi Ravi,

    Thanks for sharing these webinar platforms with us. I personally haven’t done any webinars, but I do have a YouTube channel. I’ve heard so many people say that they love doing webinars and it has helped them grow their business.

    While I don’t plan on doing a webinar anytime soon. It’s nice to know which platforms we can start with for free. It’s nice to test webinars out on a free platform before deciding if we want to invest in a paid platform.

    Thanks for taking the time to put this list together for us.

    Have a great day πŸ™‚


    1. Hey Susan,

      I have seen your videos. You should definitely have a webinar to make people understand what you and how you can help them.

      YouTube is a great source to attract more and more people. You can even redirect them to your blog.
      Glad you found it helpful.

  2. Hi Ravi,

    Excellent advice on free webinar platforms. I am so glad you mentioned Facebook Live because I’ve been doing that for a while. Creating a free webinar there is so much easier than using a paid webinar service, especially when it comes to questions. People can get lost commenting and asking questions on a webinar. But just about everyone (even my mother) knows how to comment on Facebok. It makes it easy for the person running the webinar as well as those who have joined it.


    1. Hey Donna,

      Yes, that’s the beauty of Facebook. People are comfortable with this platform. No one needs to ask the process to chat, watch videos or the live stream.
      I am glad that you have been using this.
      Keep going. Have a great weekend.

  3. Hey Ravi!

    This is quite a nice and helpful list. A lot of these I have not heard of before.

    I like using Google Hangouts for webinars. But, lately it has beeen having problems with network connectivity. We shouldn’t complain since is 100% free, right! haha πŸ™‚

    Webinars are great to connect with your audience live. It is also a great way to introduce a new product or service to your niche audience.

    Thank you for sharing this list. I’m bookmarking!

    Best regards! πŸ˜€

  4. Hello Ravi,

    Very informative post over here πŸ™‚

    Indeed webinar is came out as a trend in the recent years, people are not getting more attracted towards this platform
    apart from getting up and sitting into a long held seminars.

    I see a lot around these days, that how people are coming up with webinars on their space these days along with the
    social media platform too, and the boost they are getting is just too good.

    Good to know about lots of webinars platform which can deliver us the best experience if one wants to held a webinar.

    Google Hangouts and skype are no doubt the top players in this race.

    Thanks for the share.


  5. Hi Ravi,

    It’s great to read your post. I was busy with my projects, that’s the reason I was inactive a bit, specially reading & commenting was completely off.

    Anyways, all the platforms are good but there is no better than Skype and Facebook Live as I personally love both these platforms.

    ~ Donna
