Availability of robust marketing capabilities is what I like most about BigMarker. Virtual events enhancement is another great aspect.

Cons
I have never been able to run a webinar with no inconvenients, today was the limit, I lost the work to put in a webinar 150 attendants. A lot fo money wasted because of lack of realiability.

Francisco O.

Also last time I was presenting at home, with another person presenting from the office. I realized when viewing the video that when my connection dropped, the webinar stalled.

If it weren't for the microphone problem I probably wouldn't be looking elsewhere.

Best in Class for Meetings, Webinars & Live Events

Reviewed 25 days ago

Big Marker is an excellent company who provides enterprise level services to small and large businesses. The company is located in Chicago, IL and their customer services is excellent. Our experience with Big Marker has been excellent and we plan to expand our use of the platform with some of the new programs we have under-way. I am always shocked at the difference between Big Marker's level of excellence and reliability compared to other platforms that grew rapidly during 2020. There really is no comparison and Big Marker is head and shoulders above all of the competition.

Pros

Big Marker is designed for companies who want a reliable, consistent, secure platform to host individual and group meetings, small and large webinars, ever-green events, and live events. I've used many systems and Big Marker outperforms all of them by far. I especially appreciate the way they host recordings to make access easy, yet secure for those with approved access. You can offer memberships and monitize your offers very easily. The system is easy to administer without a need for extensive training. Big Marker is more secure than most other meeting and webinar platforms, which is very important for those of us needing a high level of confidentiality and security. Overall, I would recommend Big Marker to anyone serious about offering professional meetings and events.

Cons

Everything is straight-forward and easy to use. I really have nothing negative to say about Big Marker. It's been a reliable system for us.

Vendor response

High-quality, powerful, marketing/growth-focused webinar platform! MAJOR FAN!

Reviewed 8 months ago
Pros

BigMarker is such an incredibly robust and powerful webinar platform without being complicated. Here are the ways I'm using it: - Weekly live webinar workshops - Edit the video and re-upload it as an automated webinar - Workshop series (16 weeks with a sequential curriculum)

Cons

Truthfully, the *only* con is that it can do so many things, so it takes a practice run or two to get used to what to click and do during the webinar to make sure it all goes smoothly (especially in terms of permissions in what you do and don't want the audience to see). The reason this was a little challenge for me was that I needed to run webinars where the participants could all participate in the Q&A, but not see each other or each other's questions. So, it took a couple practice runs to get used to all the settings allowing me to customize. Now that I am used to it, the feature set is absolutely fantastic! I LOVE BigMarker and it has been one of the most impactful tools in my business (and an amazing feature set for monetizing webinars and training series).

Unfortunately looking for another webinar platform

Reviewed a year ago

It's a mixed bag. I like that they are making improvements but my biggest issue is the user experience with microphones and sadly there has been no fix for that. I wish there was an option to click somewhere and see what attendees are seeing, which would be helpful when you're trying to coach them through the process of turning on their microphones. If it weren't for the microphone problem I probably wouldn't be looking elsewhere.

Pros

We've used BigMarker for more than a year. After trying out several options, I was directed to go with the cheapest. I believe the price has gone up since then. I know that they must be continually working on it because I keep seeing more features added, such as automatically muting my microphone when the video plays. They are pretty quick about getting back with me when I have questions (although it doesn't always resolve an issue). I do like the recording feature, especially since they have added the ability to trim the video right on the website. I also like that you can download the recorded video of the webinar.

Cons

We do webinars monthly, usually more often than that. Setting up a webinar is frustrating because several options are offered without explanation of what each option entails. Worst is the attendee experience. I put the mic icon + instructions on our presentation's first slide, but attendees always have problems finding it and we waste several minutes trying to do so, even with a dedicated web person...

Fully customisable and multipurpose webinar platfrom

Reviewed 23 days ago

As a design strategist, delivering my content using webinar software, customising the brand of the webinar is essential; it gives me credibility and professionalism.

Pros

I love BigMarker because it's browser-based; there is no need to install any software to use it. I appreciate the ability to use pre-designed registration forms and to customise their look and feel. I like the BigMarker overall interface, which I find intuitive and straightforward. The best thing of all, though, is the team behind the product and the support team, which helped me on many occasions.

Cons

The only issue that I'm experiencing is the resolution of my external webcam. I use the Logitech Brio, and I'd love the image to be a higher resolution than what I'm actually able to choose from. The rest meets my needs.

Vendor response

Hi Stefano, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with our platform, we appreciate your feedback. BigMarker is always looking to optimize an intuitive and straightforward interface and we are glad to see positive results. We are so glad that our support team has been helpful and efficient with assisting your event. Happy event hosting! Thanks, Team BigMarker

Webinar software that revolutionised our business

Reviewed 7 months ago

loved it, have recommended it on a regular basis. I have had one technical issue/bug in 10 months with sending an email and UK based support fixed that within 2 hours

Pros

There are lots of free software for virtual meetings, but when lockdown first hit, we wanted to run a webinar everyweek (for 50-100 people) and also use the same software for 1-day training courses and our annual conference. I did a lot of research on YouTube reviews about alternative solutions. At that time (March 2020) I had not heard about BigMarker, however it had great reviews. We started with...

Cons

The only annoying issue is that I have to upload lists from individual webinars back up to the top level, before sending a new invite. We get about 20- 40 registrations from new users each week, so it would be helpful that these were automatically added to a list. Similarly I would like to see a consolidated list of users and what they registered and attended. I had to manually combine data from 40 spreadsheets to get the overall picture.
