Round 1: Pricing

Vimeo ProVidyard
$17/month ($200/year) for 1024 GBfrom $79/month for 20 videos


Winner: Vimeo Pro!

However, Vimeo Pro and Vidyard are not really in the same pricing ballpark. Vimeo Pro is a low volume, high quality solution while Vidyard is an enterprise level solution  integrated with marketing automation with high level pricing and features. Vimeo Pro has a stripped back un-customizable free version (Vimeo) which cannot be used for business or commercial videos.

Winner: Vidyard!

Vidyard isn’t only in a different price ballpark – it’s in a different feature ballpark. For the most powerful marketing automation and analytics features and seamless integration with Salesforce platforms, the enterprise level pricing is worth it, but for a small operation it really will be overkill. Vimeo Pro is better equipped for SEO features, but Vidyard is better for email marketing.
