Which Webinar Tool is best?
Now, the question is ‘Which of the webinar tools is the best?’  It’s a tough choice considering all of them have almost every feature that one could require for a webinar. But there has to be a winner since this is business we’re talking about. Let’s compare them based on certain important aspects.

Simplicity and ease of access:The easiest to use and understand webinar tool is the GetResponse. The other sites give you many features to customize just about everything but GetResponse just lays it out for you in just two steps. I daresay you may be able to try it with your eyes closed (just kidding, with one eye closed). 

Invites and Reminders: Adobe, AnyMeeting, join.me and GetResponse offer custom branding to your URLs for a unique feel to it. But GetResponse goes the extra mile with custom templates for invitations and reminders that really catch your eye.

Interface: GetResponse allows you to completely customize the event to keep the audience engaged with chat, polls, screen sharing, whiteboards and youtube videos. Adobe also offers a fully customizable live environment and a landing page.

Webinar Analysis: GetResponse pulls out all stops on this one. You can view webinars instantly, analyze attendees list and track how many registrants actually attended. Every other company offers some features but not as much as GetResponse.

Cost: You may be wondering why I hadn’t mentioned the most important factor before this when I mentioned this is a business thing. Well obviously for dramatic effect.

GetResponse comes out on top in this category too. At $799/month you get the following benefits:
1.      E-mail marketing
2.      Autoresponders 2.0
3.      Landing page (pro)
4.      Dedicated account manager
5.      Dedicated infrastructure
6.      2+ dedicated IP addresses
7.      Max mailout performance
8.      Deliverability consulting
9.      10 users
10.  100,000+ list size
So here’s the verdict:
GetResponse wins the battle of webinar tools with ease considering the quality and quantity of the service being offered at their price. The other competitors do have unique tricks up their sleeves, but GetResponse just draws them all out.
