Powtoon

Powtoon is a very capable suite of tools that help a developer create training videos that look way better than they should. I've used it to create fun, attention-getting commercials for new topics, I've used it to enhance what would otherwise be boring step-by-step tutorials, and I've used it to create all manner of "Explainer videos" for all kinds of topics - this is where it EXCELS!In my opinion, its biggest limitations are limits on imported video (max of 90 seconds), which mean that you have to do a lot of extra work to break up and import anything of substantive length. And because it presents your personal library of imported images and audio ONLY sequentially, it's VERY LIMITED in the re-usability of those assets - it's way faster to just import a new instance of an image and audio than to try to find it in your library.

Vidyard

I would say that Vidyard is a great tool for Account Managers. They seem to love it when working with clients. We have had a harder time with sales adopting the product. I believe if it is a quick sale cycle, Vidyard may not be the first tool I would suggest.

Pros

Powtoon

  • Powtoon is very easy to use; no previous experience is needed.
  • It has a lot of features (images, backgrounds, videos, sounds, etc.)
  • It automatically saves your work
  • After you have created your video, you can download it to your computer in different resolutions
Jose de la Fuente | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • Data: being able to see who watched the video, for how long, where they live, and how these things change over time is incredibly useful.
  • Interactivity: being able to gate videos or add a call to action in one central place is great.
  • Easy hosting: once a video is uploaded to Vidyard you can post it in multiple channels but make changes in one central place, so it makes it very easy to keep track of assets.
Suzanna Doran | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Powtoon

  • Only one timeline to edit from which sometimes makes it difficult to select objects.
  • Animations can only be set to ½ seconds. Sometimes more precise amounts of time are needed.
  • Although there are a bunch of different actions you can place on a character, it's almost impossible to create a custom action within the program.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • The Vidyard UI can be difficult to navigate and the concept of a player requires extensive effort to understand.
  • Vidyard allows clipping the beginning and end of videos but does not provide an undo option if a mistake is made. This requires re-recording the video if part of a sentence was mistakenly cut off.
  • Vidyard's video clipping tool is difficult to use and it's hard to tell how much you'll be cutting from the beginning or end of a video which results in repeated adjustments to prevent losing an important part of the video.

It has been an integral part of both our employees and customers experience. I would highly recommend VidYard to anyone looking for new ways to make their support interactions more personable and efficient. Not only that, but is a huge value add for existing customers of the HubSpot product as well.

Vidyard does what it is supposed to do, but it takes regular use and adoption to really get any benefit. It is much more beneficial as a 1:1 personal sales video tool than in mass marketing email blast campaigns. The analytics are insightful and the tool has some cool ways to make videos more interactive and branded.

It performs very well. I have never had any bugs while recording, and none of the videos have been impaired or corrupted. I don't believe it integrates with any other software but you could contact the company to learn more. I am not sure if it is only available on Chrome.

I have never needed the support feature. As I mentioned, everything was intuitive to me however I have taught myself Adobe, Final Cut and iMovie so most of these programs became intuitive.

I first heard of Vidyard at a marketing conference (INBOUND 2019). I was impressed with the team working at the booth. They were friendly, helpful, and they were able to really show me how Vidyard could help our specific company. I took all that information to the owners when I got back from the conference and it was an easy sell. Since the very beginning, I felt like we were in good hands. We had great people working with us and helping us get everything set up. When there was a new account manager, she reached out (via video message of course) and made it clear that she was happy to help us with whatever we needed.

It's pretty straightforward. The bulk of the work goes on outside of Vidyard - it's the time required to add different videos to your website - that was probably the only difficult part and had nothing to do with Vidyard.

Alternatives Considered

Powtoon

Powtoon has the advantage over traditional video editing software in terms of the library of characters and elements that can be easily dragged and dropped onto the canvas. Powtoon is easier to use and has a more intuitive user interface than Vyond.

Vidyard

I've never evaluated another product like Vidyard. I just used screen recordings with RingCentral before, and I remember the file size being very large and having to add the video as an attachment. So this was a major improvement to be able to shoot videos and easily share with my clients.

Return on Investment

Powtoon

  • I am not saying it was a bad investment but I did not get the return I expected.
  • I considerably increased the number of clients after using this platform.
  • The price for which you pay to use its functions unlimitedly is acceptable and adapts to the use that you want to give it.
Penelope Brown | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • Sales outreach emails using Vidyard are far more effective than text based ones. We've split tested campaigns and proved that. Typical response rate on those emails that are opened, show text based emails is less than 10%. Video based ones are above 60%.
