Useful free platform for anyone who wants to share or sell their expertise through live webinars.

Expertise.tv is one option to consider. A practice account is free forever and provides unlimited webinars and unlimited attendees, webinar recording and storage, simple video content creation, private rehearsal options, and screen sharing for hosts. This free option would be ideal for Elsa, Amel, and Robert to practice with but would demand a time commitment. Enhanced service levels from Expertise.tv are available at $25, $95, and $195 a month, adding what appears to be very useful business development and marketing functionality including automated lead generation, PowerPoint and PDF presentation tools, email and text reminders, calendar booking including individual one-hour coaching engagements, live audience analytics, payments management, and 24/7 support options. Expertise.tv is optimized for leveraging Facebook as a lead generator and amplifier of offered content.
