During a recent Life of E’s Email Extravaganza, I was asked the following question:
I am still mulling over Audio Acrobat vs. GoToWebinar. Due to limited resources I prefer not to buy both. It seems to me that GoToWebinar does everything Audio Acrobat does, plus it allows you to record the desktop. Why Audio Acrobat over GoToWebinar?
For me, the issue with Audio Acrobat is that it’s cheap and easy….GotoWebinar/GotoMeeting is more expensive – and yes, it has lots of extra things it does, like record the desktop, but for just pure teleseminars, it seems the extra expense wouldn’t be worth it…And another piece is that they don’t ‘house’ or ‘store’ your recordings whereas Audio Acrobat does. So when I do a webinar with GotoWebinar, I need to save it to my computer and then I have to either send it out via YouSendIt or I can put it up on my site (and then it’s housed on my host’s server).
Not sure if I’m making sense on this…But the main thing I would say is this, What do you really plan to do? If you think you’ll be doing a bunch of webinars, then go with GoToWebinar, but if you think you’ll be focusing mostly on teleseminars, then I’d start with Audio Acrobat . No need to buy more than you need.
