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.
Microsoft Teams is one of the most famous communication and collaboration platform, known for their workplace chat, video meetings, file storage and application integration. In 2018, Microsoft launch the Live events feature within Microsoft Teams. It allows Microsoft Teams users to host live events, especially for big internal webinar.
Even though Microsoft Teams allows to create one-to-many live event, it has some shortcomings in terms of marketing options for the organiser. Live events are limited when it comes to inviting the attendees outside of the organisation and leveraging it for lead generation. There is indeed no registration options when it comes to reaching a wider audience (only a public access link). Microsoft Teams Live Events doesn't provide advanced features such as webinar automations, smart forms, or customisable emails.
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.
