Likelihood to Recommend

BrightTALK

BrightTalk is almost like a visual theater or university classroom. It is for groups of people who share a common interest, profession, or requirement (i.e., continuing education or training). It is appropriate when you have to circle up professionals across different time zones and physical locations. It is also good for those who have a computer and the Internet.

Livestorm

Livestorm is well suited to use when you need to reach a group of more than ten people. It wouldn't be a good solution if you wanted interaction from the audience in more than the form of chat.

Cons

BrightTALK

  • Our sphere is healthcare and I would appreciate even more customization to this sector.
  • Sometimes a shorter webinar would be preferred, an hour is a long time in today's demanding marketplace.
  • More of the local live events, love these.

    Usability

    BrightTALK

    I think that people are getting the hang of how virtual meetings and events work. Of course, there are always some people who will have trouble logging in, etc., but that is now more the exception vs. the norm. The usability is fine - there will always be critics on how the navigation is etc., but the most important thing is were you able to connect with others on the platform. If the answer is yes, this is considered a success.

    Making sure the permission settings for your camera, microphone or browser can sometimes be tricky. If we have a guest, we always have to double-check these. It's also not super intuitive that you need to "Get on Stage" from the webinar page.

    The customer service representatives are extremely attentive. They do an excellent job of trying to understand the scope of the issue and follow it through until it has been resolved. When I have provided them with recommendations for improvement they have taken them to heart and many times implemented them. I trust that if I ever have a problem they will be there to help

    Alternatives Considered

    BrightTALK

    GoToMeeting is less expensive but does not provide access to a database of users or a good platform to showcase recorded webinars in a channel. BrightTalk is created more as a marketing and content hub so is better for marketing activities.
