Great tool to creatively get in touch with elusive prospects

2018-03-27

Pros

What I like the most about this tool is that it helps me focus on visual attractions for my prospects and instead of just typing what I want to get across I can just show them

Cons

Well no major issues with the tool if I had to pick something I would have to say I would like for them to have better integration with the actual email template or access within the email engine you use in my case Gmail

Users don't really use it as they should

2018-03-07

Pros

It was easy to implement and has great functionality. The integration with Salesforce was especially simple.

Cons

Not really a fault with the service, but users don't enjoy sending videos of themselves and it doesn't seem to garner much attention from leads.

solid product

2019-09-20

Overall it's a good product, however, I wouldn't recommend spending too much time on it.

Pros

It's easy to use and integrates well with our Salesloft environment

Cons

The time that it takes to create each video can get frustrating, especially if you mess up. Good to use for high priority prospects, but probably not something I'd spend a lot of time on.

I use Vidyard everyday and love it!

2018-09-05

We have loved Vidyard!

Pros

We can easily create personalized videos for our prospects, layer on case studies and other marketing resources and send them through a SalesLoft template or via gmail.

Cons

I wish that Vidyard allowed for scripts to be running alongside the screenshot while you are making your videos

Solid enterprise platform video product but isn't the best

2018-07-02

Pros

Very good videos platform that can do a lot of neat stuff for external customer videos and also comes with a great library feature if you want to add it to an intranet

Cons

Reporting is not very robust and it is a very expensive product.

Vidyard is what sets me apart

2019-02-05

Vidyard is great and definitely a tool that all salespeople should be using daily.

Pros

Vidyard is seriously the best things ever when you're prospecting. It works so well to have video in any cold outreach and makes the whole process of prospecting less weird.

Cons

I don't have any complaints besides that fact that it doesn't integrate with Outreach.

Great Tool for Recording Videos

2019-03-19

I've really enjoyed using this tool and would highly recommend it to anyone who records videos.

Pros

This has been great for creating video recordings to walk clients through websites we've created, analytics reports, or anything else that's easier to share visually than through an email.

Cons

This tool is so simple that there really isn't anything about it that stands out to me as a negative.

Love the Analytics and Livestream Feature

2016-12-12

Great platform for videos, the analytics are so on point, we've found it extremely useful to see where users replay, drop off, skip in our videos.

Pros

I love the analytics and data provided by Vidyard.

Cons

The user experience could be a lot better because I sometimes have trouble finding out where certain features are and how to activate them such as changing the color of a player, etc.

Vidyard, a niche solution. Not exactly for everyone.

2019-02-06

Pros

Innovative. Great way to increase traction and get noticed.

Cons

Integration is bad.

Not sure why it's priced so high

2018-10-03

Pros

It's a fairly easy tool to learn and it's now the go-to video tool for bigger brands like HubSpot.

Cons

What can you do in Vidyard that you can't do with some design skills and YouTube or Wistia?

Video Sales Made Easy!

2018-12-12

Pros

The plug in allows you to make videos from anywhere online, which is great when you are on the company website for the prospect and are able to show personalization while creating your outreach video.

Cons

The videos are able to be edited but you can of course try again until you get it perfect!

Great integration with HubSpot

2019-07-31

Pros

We use HubSpot here at the university and the integration with Vidyard was great as today we can send, via email, videos with numerous explanations for questions our students have.

Cons

At first it was a little difficult to learn how to produce videos correctly, but now we're getting better.

Vidyard provides insights into video that builder better businesses

2012-07-25

Vidyard's interface is very user friendly and while the tool is simple and easy to use, the analytics and insights are far from trivial and pack a big punch.

Take some time to get familiar

2019-11-15

Needed some professional help to get it setup at first, due to unfamiliar with the terminology used in the software.

Pros

Upload of video seems pretty fast and the service rarely becomes unavailable. The uploaded video very 'portable' for use on different online platform like SharePoint and Lithium.

Cons

Buttons and labeling in the user interface not always make sense.
