  • It is priced very reasonably for all that it offers.
  • It lets me look more professional by having a place to host that looks very clean and pro.

  • In my experience, the delivery date was delayed by 3 months.
  • I believe they had poor communication.
  • It is my personal belief that they hide sensitive information from us and lead us to go in the opposite direction with their services.

  • Our video pitches shared via Vimeo have led to 14 competition progressions out of 20; compared to 6 from the prior 22.
  • Our commercial department relies on Vimeo's collaboration tools to ensure client satisfaction during content development and this has driven up our video clients portfolio by double the size since we switched and clients no longer had to struggle to provide feedback.

  • Simple sharing of videos (time-saving)
  • Increased administration and frustration (Pro support is only supplied to the owner of the team, not the team members)
  • The analytics are sub-par, and have left us in the dark when it comes to learning from statistics.

  • General membership engagement has increased significantly. We are accustomed to 20-35% of users viewing content and that has increased to about 40-60% within the past 5 months.
  • We have found that linking a Vimeo video where the video can be viewed in-app or on the website is when we see most views, rather than redirecting users to the Vimeo account.

  • Positive - Our use of Vimeo to deliver video content to clients has garnered compliments, theoretically improving brand image in the eyes of clients.
  • Positive - Vimeo's excellent user interface has allowed stellar organization of videos without much fuss.

  • Our clients are happy with the quality of the videos we upload – which makes us look good and keeps them coming back for repeat business.
  • Vimeo Pro is very affordable – $20+/month. We don't really even have to account for it in our budget.
  • It helps us with video storage – if we lose something on our internal drive, we can rely on the cloud service with Vimeo.

  • Vimeo allows us to not self-host thousands of videos. The storage costs alone have been worth the subscription costs.
  • Vimeo provides the bandwidth to stream to thousands of viewers at no additional cost.

  • 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.
