BrightTALK Channels Feature Reviews

6 reviewers had the following to say about BrightTALK Channels's features:

Francesca B.

BrightTalk is just Ok

2019-12-05

We wanted to do webinars at scale. What's happening is that our webinar registrants are now "subscribers" to their channels and get solicited to join irrelevant webinars.

Pros

By utilizing their platform, you gain access to their communities of subscribers -- so a lead gen benefit.

Cons

And the brand customization is limited.

Response from BrightTALK


Hi Francesca

Thank you for sharing your response. It's our #1 priority that our platform is delivering value for our audiences and clients alike.

I will reach out directly to discuss your concerns, but to address your feedback:
- Brand customization is one of the areas we shine compared to alternatives, so let's discuss if you're aware of all the functionality in the platform.
- We just launched talks, which clients are calling the most modern and intuitive interface for live webinar and video talks they have seen. Again, let's make sure you're using this and getting value from this.
- Building a community of subscribers is what drives record-breaking views and repeat engagement for our clients.
- Recommendations are AI-powered and based on historical views of a user. The accuracy of the recommendations have generated 2-3x lifts in re-engagement. Our users LOVE the accuracy of our recommendations. So I want to better understand which examples you're referencing.

Thank you again!

Great webinar tool that gave us access to a built-in audience

2017-11-07

We like having access to a built-in audience of HR people.

Pros

We use BrightTALK to access their large built-in HR audience.

Cons

It does not have all of the flexibility and power of GoToWebinar. There is a 30-second delay. You have to load the slides before the webinar. You have to use Join.me if you want to share your screen as opposed to the loaded slide deck.

Great Marketing Tool to Expand Your Webinar’s Audience

2020-06-23

The platform is user-friendly and a great marketing tool for holding a webinar session. However, some features could be updated to suit different types of webinar.

Pros

BrightTALK is not only a platform to organise a webinar but it also helps us to expand the audience for our webinar. It’s easy to use and navigate.

Cons

There is no comment box provided during an active webinar session so the webinar can only be a one-way communication, not interactive.

Way too many follow on emails

2020-03-10

I recommended that we not use this software for events because of the amount of email suggestions that were sent out after signing up for an event. We would not want our customers to think that we were pushing any of that to them or have them not register for an event to avoid the emails.

Pros

The ease of sharing events with partners and clients was great and very simple. Graphics are sharp and clear as you create the events.

Cons

I had a hard time turning this off and ultimately unsubscribed.

Easy to use and very interactive

2020-06-17

Pros

It’s very easy to use as it took me only few minutes to understand how it works.

Cons

The price is expensive so for a small project is not really affordable. Although with the quality and result we experienced, it’s still quite accaptable
