    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.

    If you're a small company with one or two employees, I'm sure that Vimeo is great. When it comes to larger organizations and teams, they clearly are treating such customers stepmotherly. You need a basic account in order to be an admin on a Pro-plan team, but you only get basic support (3 days wait). The teams function is riddled with bugs and affects the whole experience. In this case, I would not recommend Vimeo at all.

    Pros

    BrightTALK

    • Training
    • Product explanation.
    • Suggestive referrals.

    Vimeo

    • User-friendly interface for administrators of the account and external viewers. Being able to easily navigate a new platform or software is ideal for anyone.
    • Seamless sharing and embedding across many platforms. Vimeo is well-recognized so it makes it easy for other platforms to recognize Vimeo. The compatibility is outstanding.
    • As an administrator of the account, being able to select viewing privileges may seem like a basic function, but it's so necessary right now with how heavy our organization is utilizing the platform. We can mass upload content early and only release it for the public over time by simply changing it to a public video.

    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.

    Vimeo

    • Price - For the full featureset of Vimeo, you will be paying $900 a year as of 2020, and this is expected to only go up over time. Thankfully, Vimeo offers lower tiers with less functionality, and most people will not need the unlimited streaming viewers or whopping 7 TB of storage that you get for the highest level of membership. But it is still a premium price for a premium service.
    • "Suggested" Algorithm - The equivalent of YouTube's suggested videos feature is the Vimeo Staff Picks, which recommends curated content from their team of editors. While this content generally has a high level of production, it is not especially relevant to the video you are watching, or to your watch history as a user. I rarely watch suggested videos in Vimeo.
    • Search - The Vimeo search page is beautiful, having huge thumbnails of videos with a clean, visually-appealing layout. However, the results themselves leave much to be desired. When I search for "jung" to try to find videos on Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung, of the first 18 results, not a single result is actually about C. G. Jung. On Youtube, the first 14 results are all about Jung. When I search for "c. g. jung" on Vimeo I find a number of relevant results, so it's not that the videos are not available in Vimeo. Rather, the search algorithm is not returning relevant results.

      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.

      The customization options are vast and very easy to utilize. While there can be a slight learning curve for some advanced features, it is not so steep that it takes a long time to figure out. Support is great at guiding you through anything that might be confusing to you as well

      Terrible support. When I subscribed to Premium we were guaranteed support. However, after the first e-mail I received from them, I never heard from them again. I sent several emails over the course of a couple of weeks acknowledging that due to covid, I did not expect a miracle overnight and that I was keen to work on the issue with them. I have not heard from customer service at all. This is very disappointing. We lost customers due to the poor quality of the livestreams and were left to sort the issue out without their 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.

      Vimeo

      YouTube was the platform we primarily used previously, after having restrictions and having locked out of a couple of accounts we needed a better platform. We also lost some of our videos. We also have an internal app to track client videos and Vimeo supported it better. With the increased storage and the number of videos we create, we decided Vimeo would be better.

      Vimeo

      • It allows clients to serve a massive amount of video content within an LMS without eating up disk space or sacrificing bandwidth.
      • The overall cost is very low compared to other tools and there is no 'pay per view' style unstable pricing.
      • The tool has allowed students in other countries to access content faster.
      • NEGATIVE - the upload limits per week, especially on the basic/pro accounts are too restrictive.
