I enjoyed the data perspective from the content that I was publishing. Wistia enables you to see where people were dropping off as well as how many times someone was viewing a piece of content. This quickly helped us find where we needed to make updates and adjustments.

From the first time, I logged in, to the most recent time I uploaded a video and then forwarded the URL to a co-worker so they can use it in their workflow. This software is incredible. The company is engaging and offers inspiring posts to their customer base and their User Community is fantastic. I appreciate the services this product provides and can't wait to see where things go for them in the future. Keep up the incredible work!

Lot of benefits - helps me decide create topics for new videos. Also helps me make decisions on what videos to promote and what not to. I also get to know if the video is lengthy or not, based on engagement rate.

Just great value for the cost. Nicely scoped service/product. You get just what you need to get the job done. There is little fluff.

Benefits

Focus on Context
Whether your video is large or small, inline or popover, autoplaying or gated, we make it easy to customize every detail so your video fits into place wherever you embed it.


Measuring what matters
The first step to improving your video strategy is to start measuring it. As you learn what engages your audience, you can use that data to inform and improve your next videos.


Video SEO
Creating video sitemaps is easy, and it helps search engines read the content of your videos. This means your videos rank higher in search results, and so do the pages they’re on! Most importantly, these links will bring traffic to your own website (not a third-party host) and your own content.

Email marketing
Add videos to your email marketing campaigns and know exactly who watched them.

Wistia Labs
Experimental integrations, plug-ins, and extensions.

Playlists
Embed a whole library of content in a single video player.
