AnyMeeting

I'm often working on different projects with a variety of clients and having used most communication platforms out there, I must say AnyMeeting is the quickest-loading and as far as quality goes, it works out great. To me, it's only less appropriate when our clients prefer to use another platform, but personally I prefer it over the competition.

WebinarJam

It's an excellent tool for agencies and companies that regularly host webinars and use it as a lead generation tool. It integrates well with other tools and has a great and reliable notification system. You can always edit their existing email notifications, but even general ones work well. If you're looking to only host a few webinars per year, you might be better off with a smaller, cheaper tool

Pros

  • Stability - It's an amazingly dependable software, I don't believe I have experienced any issues with the tool, other than related to internet connection.
  • User Experience - One screen for everything you need to schedule, check recordings, or start a call right away, with lovely UI and you don't need to spend a lot of time figuring it out. It's quite easy to use and communicate with it.
  • History & recordings - Records are important in business and being able to record and consult a history of calls is of great help when doing analysis or transcribing a client's requirements discussed during a call.

  • It's easy to set up. Even if you don't have too much skill when it comes to technical set-up, the tool has a very user-friendly interface that allows you to create and set up your webinar in just a few minutes.
  • Easy and reliable integrations. The tool integrates easily with multiple tools, and it's also on Zapier in case you need some additional functionalities.
  • Testing links. This one is my favorite! The tool generates test links for you to practice delivering your best presentation, without harming your initial webinar setup.

Cons

  • Viewers in China cannot access our webinars, and this is a large market for us. Not sure if there is anything to be done about this from AnyMeeting's side of if this is strictly due to Chinese regulation. However, China can access GoToWebinar.
  • Allowing multiple tracking URLs for one webinar would be useful to see which marketing campaigns our registrants are coming from.
  • AnyMeeting used to have a feature where you could input a YouTube URL and easily play the video during a webinar within a pane without screen-sharing. This feature has been removed, and it was useful for us.
  • AnyMeeting seems to use a lot of computer memory and can crash on older or slower computers. This has happened to us in the middle of a webinar before. We have since started using specific, newer, faster computers when giving webinars. We also close other high-memory programs when presenting, like Skype.

  • SUPPORT: It's there if you need it, but you do need to be proactive. Sometimes you need help immediately and that's just not going to work with WebinarJam. You must learn to practice, test and be prepared for a webinar (a few days before you plan to go live to iron out any technical issues) without relying on their support team 2 minutes before your webinar. Join their FB page, read common questions that come up, get involved helping others, and you will be successful. If you are not the pro-active type, I would recommend a different software.
  • CHANGES: There are times software changes, and the team communicates the changes, and what you must do, but again, like the other point, you must learn to be proactive to learn and understand them. Example: the transition from Google Hangouts to Youtube a few years ago (had to learn how to do this) and now we must keep up to date on how WebinarJam works or does not work (it says it is not currently integrating with FB Live). Logging into the system and reading the messages is all you need to do, but if you are not proactive at doing this, it's not the software for you.
  • MORE ONGOING COMMUNICATION AND SUPPORT TO USERS: This could be improved with more training videos and communication to users. That said, there is training there, it just depends on how much you need.

It works well, and does what it needs to, but there are a few flaws like the sound isn't great. There are fancier, prettier more expensive products that one could use, but this one does the job almost as well. Good value for the money.

Alternatives Considered

Pricing and usability is a big reason I chose AnyMeeting for my current needs.
Hallie Bulkin profile photo
WebinarJam beats all the other services I have used (Webex, GoToWebinar, Join.me) because I get a better looking system, for a better price. Join.me had some connectivity issues when presenting from the USA to Canada, and Webex/GotoMeeting always looked outdated to me. WebinarJam gives me a modern, professional and polished webinar for a fraction of the cost.

Return on Investment

  • It has made it very easy to hold strategy calls with clients who want a recorded call to reference in the future.

  • PRODUCT SALES: We have been using WebinarJam since 2014 (were early adopters before they launched) and have found the value in our cost to use it was earned back after our first year. We have not had sales through the product offer at the end, but have used the tool to build trust and awareness with our customers who went on to purchase our programs after other interactions and follow up sequences. WebinarJam was the first step in our sales cycle to build trust.
  • BRAND AWARENESS: When we launch a new program, we hold webinars that have helped with brand awareness, education, and support for our users/customers.
  • AFFORDABLE COMPLETION FOR OUR PRODUCT STACK: We invested in WebinarJam as this tool was an important part of our product stack. We have over the years switched our automated marketing tool/autoresponder, but we have never left WebinarJam. The investment was something I have never regretted (unlike other software programs that have cost me an arm and a leg).
