All virtual event streaming platforms are not created equally.
We have all been invited to an online webinar or conference that mentions the dreaded word that will forever be associated with lockdowns and the year that was 2021, Zoom. And we have all let out an audible ‘sigh’ as we ready ourselves to log in.
While there are absolutely many reasons to head down the track of holding your virtual event on Zoom (that is why it is such a successful platform), there are many reasons to look further into other very well-suited online event streaming platforms to find that one that suits your budget, and will avoid having your attendees snore through the event!
Let’s take a closer look at why moving to a purpose-built webinar platform could improve the yawn factor within your events.
Budget-friendly Zoom (and similar) platforms can be easy to use for many event planners due to familiarity with and around the functionality of the platform. After a few years of lockdowns; it feels like home to us all, we get it. But how is it working for you in terms of engagement, interactivity and measurable results for your events? We guess it’s probably so, so.
Yes, you can connect with many people, you can use it to get your message out to many within the one event and hold meetings effectively, as long as there is not too much interaction required. However get your event production team using a purpose-built virtual event streaming service for your ongoing virtual event needs and we guarantee less snoring by attendees, more excitement surrounding your events, more engagement and measurable results!

How do you know when it’s time to move away from basic online conference platforms (like Zoom)?
If you are consistently communicating with large numbers of attendees remotely for conferencing, meetings or events, it may be time to step away from what seems like the easiest option, and move to a platform that allows you to present your events in a more professional manner that not only looks great for you but also attracts attendees while encouraging interaction.
If any of the below answers are a ‘no’ – it’s time to rethink your virtual event platform…
- Think about how you are measuring the results from your events currently – does your reporting tool (and results) satisfy your key stakeholders?
- Are your attendee numbers and registration numbers growing?
- Do your attendees interact and engage during your events currently?
- Are your sponsors getting great (measurable) value from their investments in your events?
- Are you able to concentrate on your key messaging rather than on how to work the tech for seamless #glitchfree connections?
