I've tried three tools for webinars and chosen to use Zoom on a regular basis . It mostly "just works" plain and simple and I don't have to waste valuable time showing attendees how to get on a webinar (as is the case for Office 365's Skype for Business).
I primarily use it for virtual meetings but every now and then I'll do a webinar. It is easy for me to upgrade when I need the webinar feature and then downgrade shortly after to avoid paying for something I am not using.
GoToWebinar also works well but is a little more expensive and overkill if you mostly do virtual meetings, as It is designed primarily for webinars. It is a little more feature rich than Zoom.
Lastly I've tried using Skype for Business which is really clunky. I always have to explain to people that we are using Skype for Business and NOT regular Skype and so there is no need for me to provide "my handle"!
And then they have to download a client that works about half the time! Skype for Business is a real, royal pain in the rear!!! The hottest parts of hell should be reserved for the product managers and maybe purgatory for the developers.
I have not personally used Facebook Live but I have a friend who has and he loves it. The good thing about it is that it is free. If you are serving a business audience, though, it might come across as less professional.
