GoToMyPc, GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting are all from the same service provider
and often mentioned as I happen to observe. I have used GoToMyPc some time
ago and found it easy to use. WebEx is the market leader in features and
functionality. Microsoft Office Communicator is a recent entry for those
using Microsoft Office noting overall Microsoft has the broadest most useful
solution provided by their Unified Commnications Platform.

What is the best? What is that supposed to mean?

I second ClintonG's input. I highly recommend and of the solutions. I find they are the most economical and robust for the price. NOTE: one reason they are economical is that when views call into one of their conference call numbers they will be paying for their own long distance charges. You can have them call to your own or a Toll Free number but if using their conference call number your view pays the long distance fees.

Other than that I think Webex would be one of the top. VERY robust functionality and they provide a toll free number for your views to call into but you (the presenter) will cover the long distance charges so this is a more expensive option than gotomeeting.

My recommendation is to try out the program first then if you feel it is not enough for your needs you can look at other options like Webex.

Try It costs only at $12.95/month, which is next to free and provides guaranteed attendance in meetings through its unique patented technology.

I've only had limited experience with webinars and I'm not certain these actually qualify as a webinar but Google+ offer what are called Hangouts. I have participated in a few of those and they seem to work quite well. Best of all *free* to all participants.


Oh, and if you sign up or have a Google+ account look me up and add me to your circles.
