What are the biggest differences?

GoToWebinar is one of the largest webinar providers worldwide. Created in 2004 as a web meeting tool, which was later extended to their webinar software.

Browser-based webinar software

Application vs Web-based

Today, GoToWebinar still uses a slightly outdated user interface. In comparison with other webinar software providers, this can be seen as less user-friendly.

GoToWebinar provides a webcast version. Still, the majority of their functionality and events run with the downloadable application of their software. WebinarGeek is completely web-based. Which increases the attendance on average by 60%.

Perhaps the most important thing for consumers is the price. GoToWebinar sits on the high-end spectrum of the webinar market, with starting prices of 89 euros.

Compared to WebinarGeek's starting prices, there's a difference of 80 euros that makes WebinarGeek more accessible for starters.

Downloads ensure a lower turnout

Unlike desktop software, web-based apps are accessible anytime, anywhere, as long as you have access to a device with an internet connection. Downloading an application and running it makes attending a webinar less accessible.

WebinarGeek is completely web-based to increase your conversion from the registrant to the viewer.
