I want to set up regular webinars with my customers.  The information, such as that shown in the screenshot below is highly detailed and so plenty of annotating tools, good graphics, etc is important.

What are the best free ones to help get us started?Webinar software needed for marketcoding.com customers.

First you have to have reasonable expectations that there is no software (especially free software) that can guarantee the quality of the sessions. There are too many factors out of their control such as each participants computer power, and network connection.

With that in mind, most services offer free trials until you find the interface you like. If this is outward facing for your customers, something light like Join.me or GoToMeeting would be good starting points. For more features and capabilities you could try WebEx but it is a bit 'heavier' of an application.

Hard to say. Within a company it is easy because of more consistent configurations. GoToMeeting has come a long way with ease for the end user. There is an install on their machine but for most it is pretty quick and painless. I would start there.

I view webinars almost each week hosted by Charles Schwab,
The software that opens up is Cisco.

Give it a try for free with the free trial.

Maybe it would be worth the cost down the road.
