    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.

    It's a great platform for a virtual event as well as an easy way to create a phone app for an in-person or hybrid event. It's especially good if your event is not simply open to the public and you want to restrict access to the content to those who have paid/registered etc.

    Pros

    BrightTALK

    • Training
    • Product explanation.
    • Suggestive referrals.

    • Customer service and attention is the best that I have seen. We have use 4-5 different event app systems over the past decade and no one came close to socio in terms of both meeting our needs and responding to questions and issues
    • The product itself is flexible but fairly easy to use. We have a fairly complex event (120+ sessions over three days with hundreds of speakers) and not only did it handle it - but it looked good.
    • Socio continually adds improvements to the product that really do make it better. They provide ample information on how to use each new feature as well.
    • Many of the changes to the product I know came from direct requests made by our organization.

    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.

    • The standard template to build out the community is pretty rigid. We had to adjust some of our styling and graphics to account for what Socio's template allowed.
    • Inability for event admins to make account changes for users. Several times we had users change jobs, therefore, changing their emails. Each time, we had to go through Socio support to get them access to their account.
    • Documentation and knowledgebase could be more substantive.

        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.

        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.

        We have used multiple virtual event platforms in the past, as well as trialed several. We ultimately decided on Webex due to the aesthetics of the website, the incredibly easy build-out process, the 24/5 support, the user-friendly front-end interface, the multiple ways to monetize sponsorships, and ultimately... the price. The value for what you get is incredible compared to other platforms.
