Cisco Webex is a web-conferencing tool that provides a suite of video-conferencing products from webinars to meetings. The company was created in 1995 and was acquired by Cisco in 2007.
Regarding webinars, Webex provides a solution called Webex Events (and Webcasting for bigger events) that functions with a native app and through phone dial-in.
Google Meet is a communication software that allows users to message contacts, start free video or video calls with one or more person. It also allows team chats for up to 250 people. The application works in sync with the other Google applications. It also comes as a Chrome extension and can be used across all devices.
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.
Don't send plain-text, generic emails to all of your contacts.
When using Livestorm’s automated emails to keep your registrants on the loop, add custom variables to personalize the message and avoid sending bland paragraphs of generic text.
Livestorm's custom variables work with the Liquid template language, meaning you can also add loops and logic to your emails in addition to custom variables.
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.
