GoToWebinar is one of the most famous webinar solutions on the market. They have been there for a very long time. GoToWebinar is created and marketed by LogMeIn, which merged with Citrix in 2016.
While the GoToWebinar software requires a download and install for host and attendees, the company provides a no-download, browser-based alternative called GoToWebcast.
Adobe Connect was originally launched in 2012. As an Adobe proprietary software, logically it relied on Flash, which is not supported anymore by many browsers today. Soon the technology will be discarded and Adobe themselves has already announced it.
Using Flash today can cause connection issues for certain participants.
Having something to download adds friction for registrants and will reduce your webinar's attendance overall. Downloading a third party software every time to attend a webinar is usually not recommended in a B2B configuration (network, firewalls, etc.).
With Livestorm's entirely web-based experience, no download is required. You will bring more people to your webinars and miss less opportunities only for technical reasons.
Providing a frictionless experience to participants directly increases the average attendance in every webinar session. Hence the need for a no-download webinar solution.
Not supporting the new standards in live video streaming (HTML5) can result in delays between the presenter and what the participants actually view (and can create confusion), poor user experience or worst: connectivity issues.
Livestorm works in WebRTC. Real-time, with no install required from the participants nor the hosts.
Livestorm comes with analytics that give you a better understanding of your webinars’ audience, and lets you segment it: registrants to attendees ratio, expanded data on all participants (company, company size, industry etc.).
If you're hosting a sales webinar, all this data is available for you to properly target warmer leads afterwards.
If you're hosting a training webinar, it will be easier then to identify customers that need more care from your Customer Success team.
Zapier lets you connect Livestorm to hundreds of other web services. Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.
Livestorm can fit easily with your existing marketing stack. Integrate your webinars with any software. Send contacts to Hubspot, create leads in Pipedrive or Salesforce, trigger events in Marketo or send your own emails via Mailchimp without any line of code, thanks to Zapier.
