Ask The Entrepreneurs is a regular series where members of the Young Entrepreneur Council are asked a single question that aims to help Lifehack readers level up their own lives, whether in a area of management, communication, business or life in general.

Here’s the question posed in this edition of Ask The Entrepreneurs:

What’s your favorite software or app for webinars/screen sharing? Why?

1. Google Hangouts

Wade FosterGoogle Hangouts are great because they work with up to 10 people, have screen sharing built in and offer native integration with Google Calendar, so anyone invited has a one-click link to join the hangout.

- Wade Foster, Zapier

 

 

2. GoToMeeting and Speek

Jesse PujjiFor conference calls, Speek is great and has some free user account options. However, for screen and deck sharing, GoToMeeting is the best option.

- Jesse Pujji, Ampush

 

 

3. Crunched.com

Robert-J.-MooreCrunched.com allows you to do traditional screen shares, but it also provides engagement analytics that show you if the person you are presenting to is actually paying attention. This gives you a better sense of what parts of your presentation are the most effective and how interested a prospect truly is in what you have to say.

- Robert J. Moore, RJMetrics

 

4. Join.me

Tim JahnJoin.me is my go-to tool for simple screen sharing. It’s super easy for you to set up the ability to share your screen, and the person you’re sharing with simply needs to visit a URL. There’s nothing to install! Many other tools/sites require all sorts of downloads and tons of steps to set up properly.

- Tim Jahn, matchist

 

 

5. GoToWebinar

Laura RoederI’ve hosted webinars for years using GoToWebinar, and they’ve never let me down! It’s the industry standard for a reason, with useful features like “hand raising” for audience members to let you know when they have a question. They also have full recording capabilities built right in the software.

- Laura Roeder, LKR Social Media

 

 

6. AnyMeeting

adam liebIt’s fast, free and easy. There is no reason you should be paying to share your screen.

- Adam Lieb, Duxter

 

 

 

7. Google Hangouts

Thursday-Bram 2I need to be able to share screens, often with multiple people, and it’s always a hassle to get people set up on a new standard. But just about everyone has a Google account these days. As long as I don’t need to get a huge number of people on the call, Google Hangouts is an easy option.

- Thursday Bram, Hyper Modern Consulting

 

 

8. Speek

Logan LenzI like using Speek for group meetings and webinars because of the way it displays the attendee information in the form of a virtual meeting room. With its interface, you can easily share documents with others in real time and discover deeper personal information through Speek’s integration with social profiles.

- Logan Lenz, Endagon
