Vimeo Pro vs Vidyard
Round 1: Pricing
|$17/month ($200/year) for 1024 GB||from $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.
Round 2: Features
|In video Calls to Action||x|
|Website does not redirect to third party||x|
|Multiple player themes supported|
|Advanced Analytics, individual viewer metrics||x|
|Integrations with CRM and marketing automation||BEST|
|Codes to secure paid content||x|
|Allows users to pay directly for premium content||x|
|Direct Payment (Tip Jar)||BEST|
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.
Round 3: Integrations
|Content Management (Wordpress, Joopla)|
Especially strong for email marketing integration, Vidyard integrates with Mailchimp, Aweber, Exact Target, and Marketo – a great choice for marketing automation.
Round 4: Language support
|Only available in English||Only available in English|
Winner: It’s a tie!
