Sproutvideo – Business Smarts meet Video Smarts
Summary: Our category favorite, Sproutvideo has 5 different pricing levels but makes all of its (impressive) features available from the first – the absolute lowest cost for analytics, tracking, and full customization features. As well as this, the security controls are excellent and you can keep your premium content completely safe. At higher volume levels, you might outstrip the bandwidth of the pricing plans, however.
Prefer Sproutvideo if:
- You require a very intuitive program
- You like a high level of Customer Support
- You want a Campaign Advisor to help your email marketing
You might prefer another if:
- They have a specific feature you prefer – Sproutvideo is really great!
- You need lots of bandwidth
