Webinar Platforms: Best Software and Equipment for Creators

Webinar Platforms

When I start defining a new business idea, one of the last things I think of is technology. This is horrific to admit, but it is true.

It's fun to stay in the creative phase of the project where you can dream about what it would look like. But over time I've come across the importance of knowing exactly how to create something rather than just knowing the 'what' or the 'why'.

In online entrepreneurship, this often includes some form of video technology. More specifically, hosting webinars.

Why webinars? According to the Content Marketing Institute, more than 60% of marketers use webinars in their business. it's huge!

With 60% of companies already using webinars, is the market too saturated for you to host one successfully? Not at all. While more small businesses and creators are seeing the power of hosting tutorials on the web, there is still enough room for you to make an impact with your content.

Since we've already covered the benefits of hosting webinars in previous Tradecraft articles, let's move on to the powerful next steps to actually get started with hosting your event.

Five powerful webinar platforms for testing

Before you start promoting your webinar, it is good to have an idea of ​​where you will be hosting it. You may not have the time to personally test every webinar hosting tool on the market, so we've done some heavy work for you. Below, you'll see some of the pros and cons of each webinar platform so you can choose the one that works best for you.
