Vimeo Pro vs Sproutvideo
Round 1: Pricing
|$17/month ($200/year) for 1024 GB||From $25/ month for 100 GB Storage|
Winner: Vimeo Pro!
Vimeo Pro offers a stripped back free version (though it cannot be used for commercial and business purposes) and while the paid Sproutvideo packages start at $25 a month, you have to get the $50 a month package to unlock all the features. For $25 a month, you get 100GB of storage (though only 50GB of bandwith) so for low video volumes Vimeo Pro could suit your business better.
Round 2: Features
|In video Calls to Action||x|
|Website does not redirect to third party||x|
|Multiple player themes supported||BEST|
|Advanced Analytics, individual viewer metrics||x|
|Integrations with CRM and marketing automation||x|
|Codes to secure paid content||BEST|
|Allows users to pay directly for premium content||x|
|Direct Payment (Tip Jar)||BEST|
Sproutvideo is the clear winner – all features are unlocked from $50/month, the lowest price for getting advanced analytics capabilities, full customization and strong privacy controls.
Round 3: Integrations
|Content Management (Wordpress, Joopla)|
Winner: Sproutvideo wins again, although neither have very strong integration stats.
Sproutvideo only integrates with Infusionsoft rather than Salesforce but its MailChimp support makes it a good bet for email marketing. Vimeo Pro, while it supports HTML5 does not have great integration support officially. The API is open for developers to make their own additions.
Round 4: Language support
|Only available in English||Only available in English|
Winner: It’s a tie!
