Zoom Video Webinar has been incredibly useful to build trust with our current client base as we provide education to them on things important to their business. We have also been able to generate significant leads through our large webinars by offering free content. So far it seems easy to use in a group setting but hasn't been used extensively by our employees for one on one client communication. I'm not sure why that is. It might just be a perception issue.

  • Invitations and RSVP management prior to call
  • Attendees Visibility & other in-call functionality
  • Post-call documentation and follow up support
  • Webinar functionality is additional cost to general business Zoom account
  • Guidance with pre-call practice/run-through
  • Nothing else really, great platform overall!
Zoom Video Webinar is well suited if you intend to surpass more than a dozen or so attendees for a normal Zoom call. Depending on the scenario, Zoom's normal conference calling software would probably be sufficient. However, if you're planning on hosting a call with a larger amount of people, I would definitely recommend checking out their Webinar software. It's particularly suited to handle the pre-call invites/RSVP management that can be quite cumbersome, as well as managing the attendees during the call (ie, who can ask questions, raise hand, see responses, etc.) and following the conclusion of the call. In short, if you want the professional functionalities that come with handling a proper webinar (not just a large group on a call), than Zoom Video Webinar is needed.

  • Great communication quality. Great quality of response time.
  • Some clients have difficulty downloading and installing the EXE file.
For videoconferencing is really well suited. Of all the tools I have tested or used, it is certainly the best one.
I always use it for this purpose, so I have no highlight about an less appropriate scenario.

  • The quality of the screen share with video or Prezi is not great
It's pretty good for any and all general webinars. I wouldn't use it for 1:1 conversations, but a regular Zoom Room will work for that.

Zoom Video Webinar Review: "Simple for marketers AND for attendees"

We use Zoom both for our corporate, everyday communication, as well as for webinars. At our peak, we hosted 2 webinars a month, with anywhere from a 100 to 300 participants. We appreciated the many improvements that have been made to the platform over the last couple of years. The interface is clean and easily navigable for new attendees and we've never experienced a technical problem.
  • The interface is clean and attendees don't seem to have a problem downloading the software and accessing the webinar for the first time.
  • Creating a webinar is simple.
  • We love practice sessions and the ability to manage broadcasts, promoting panelists, etc.
  • Integrations with other platforms, like HubSpot, could be stronger.
  • Landing page registration and confirmation emails aren't as customizable as we'd like.
  • Upgrading between attendee tiers isn't very streamlined and has left us in a bind when we underestimate the number of attendees we expect and are unable to open the room up for more participants to join while the webinar is in progress.
We haven't tested Zoom against larger attendees pools, but for small to midsize groups (300), it's worked great. I don't see any reason why Zoom's capabilities wouldn't scale beyond that. It's relatively affordable and it has nearly all of the features I would expect from a webinar platform. The nicest part is that it doesn't require extensive training to start using.

Zoom Video Webinar Review: "Simple enough to actually get used"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Zoom is being used across the entire university as our sole video conferencing solution. It is used for remote meetings, interviews, and synchronous distributed class meetings. Staff use it for support in some cases, connecting remotely to support faculty and students. It is also used in limited circumstances by faculty to create webcam and screen capture videos for later distribution through various video platforms.
  • Easy setup for external users
  • Full featured for power users
  • Very reliable service - only extremely slow internet speeds impact communication
  • Some features are hard to find, and you need to know they are there to go looking
  • Mobile app SSO has been less than straightforward lately, and resulted in signing in each time you host a meeting
Zoom is a great tool for desktop and mobile video conferences. It is easy to get started as a host, and straightforward to join as a guest - from within or outside an organization. Recording works fairly well, but more as a record than an asset to use in the future. Local recordings can be rather low quality, and cloud recordings expire. Neither has editing features built into Zoom.
