BombBomb

BombBomb works best (I believe) as a sales engagement tool. We use it in marketing for some of our campaigns, but I think it's probably best suited to engage prospects that have already entered the funnel.

Wistia

Wistia is well suited if your company hosts videos in a variety of places currently and need one master place to host the content so that it can be accessed internally and also embedded on the web and shared externally. Wistia is less appropriate as a place to house training content as there is no tracking per external user and the holistic view of all the videos is only available to internal users.

Pros

BombBomb

  • Upload your databases to BombBomb to send single email blasts or campaigns.
  • Upload your videos to BombBomb or use their software to record videos. Either way, the BombBomb system makes sending video emails easy!
  • The "Individual Plus" or any higher priced subscriptions to BombBomb software include forms and automation for lead generation and automation of campaigns.
  • The mobile app for iOS and Android is very useful for sending and responding to BombBomb emails!

Wistia

  • First, their platform is super easy and intuitive to use. There are lots of customization options, which are not difficult to learn and use.
  • Their player is mobile responsive, so all I need to do is use the embed code on my site or landing page. Their player adapts to the viewport size.
  • They have very good statistical information that helps you to see where people drop off. This insight helps evaluate content or length of video.
  • Their turnstile feature allows you to put registration directly in your video, and can be used for gated content. (Register to see the rest of this video.) Also the turnstile registration date can be integrated with your marketing automation platform.

Cons

BombBomb

  • We've found it's better with existing relationships than as an outbound campaign.
  • Deliverability - We serve markets that might be a little more strict with regards to deliverability.
  • Chrome extension - it was awful and took up so much of the inbox that we've uninstalled it completely.

Wistia

  • Obtaining embed codes for a significantly large number of videos can be very time consuming as there is no way to automatically pull a report.
  • Within a project, there is no way to set the list to show a specific number of videos and you may only have a certain number of videos shown unless you click to expand the list and continue to do so.
  • Once the list is expanded and you click in to a video, when clicking back, the list reloads and you must expand the entire list again which can become very time consuming.

There are other options out there that would work for my company. However the platform is superior to the others that we have used. I will most likely renew when the time comes. The idea that the product is still evolving and adding new options is intriguing to stay with Wistia.

Usability

As said before, the usability is very straightforward and the customization options are good enough to get the job done. There is a mobile app to help with real-time engagement so that is useful too. They offer plenty of training and best practices to make sure you are getting the most out of BombBomb.

Great, simple, usable product. Would have given it higher marks, but sometimes the folders and permissions aren't the most intuitive. Interface for uploading, tagging, describing videos is simple. Sharing is also relatively intuitive. Overall, a clean and simple interface and most of our marketing team had no issues using it. I think it was easier than using Vimeo.

Overall it's very easy to use and the video emails stand out. Everything loads quickly and they make it easy to set up. It features CRM-like functionality to view opens, clicks, time watched, etc., but it doesn't port that info over to your existing CRM which is where some of the friction occurs. Still, it's amazing for what it does. I recommend giving it a try for our outreach.

We've rarely had any trouble with Wistia, and if we have, their team is quick to respond and offer a fix. The software functions like it's supposed to, which is a breath of fresh air in a lot of ways. The HubSpot integration, especially, is really useful and has never caused any problems.

Good training and they are available to help when needed! Their initial onboarding was helpful in providing many best practices that probably saved us a few mistakes along the journey.

Their response time is unbelievable! I would send an email and have a response in less than 15 minutes. It may not have always been the complete answer, but it was a response that let me know they were working on my request.

We were in the process of changing our website so that took some time to get Wistia implemented in to our website.

Alternatives Considered

BombBomb

I have not used any other products like BombBomb. I have used video recording and tried to add it to email and send it out. It is much easier to just use BombBomb. They have done all the hard work. All I have to do is record, talk, and send.
Drew Blackston, RFC® CRC® | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wistia

I didn't actually select Wistia from a list of alternatives - I first became aware of Wistia through their library of support materials for video making, then realized that they had a pretty nice hosting capability. I started by trying it out with a couple videos that I linked to, then grew from there. Been very pleased all the way.

Return on Investment

BombBomb

  • It's well worth the money and investment.
  • It's a quick turn time from starting out to actively using the end product.
Mark Coffman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wistia

  • There is not a day that goes by that we don't generate leads and subscribers through a Wistia form on a video - often from deep in the archives.
  • Wistia lead generation has really allowed us to maximize and monetize our video collection. This morning we got a new customer who began as a lead from a video that, quite frankly, I had forgotten about.
