GDPR Proof?

The GDPR law is extremely important and is being enforced more and more strictly. So you really need to ensure that you and all parties you work with adhere to the set rules. Especially now that in July 2020 the American answer to the GDPR, namely Privacy Shield, has been declared invalid. This means that you are in violation if you continue to work with American companies such as Demio to process data. Livestorm, just like WebinarGeek, is a European company that is fully GDPR proof.

With Livestorm, you only pay for 'active contacts'. This sounds great, but these are both registrations and viewers. So you also pay for no-shows. An example: if you have 200 registrations, this will cost you €150,- per month, even if 30% does not show up. With WebinarGeek you pay €59,- for 250 viewers and 10 times as many registrations. That's quite a difference!

Chat, public or private

What could be better and more important than actually having contact with your viewer during your webinar. The best way to do this is through chat. It helps increase engagement and you can directly answer live questions to help viewers get started. With Livestorm you only have the option to use a public chat. All messages are therefore readable for all viewers.

With Demio, however, just like with WebinarGeek, you have the option to use a private chat in addition to the public chat, so that viewers can ask questions directly to the presenter without the other participants being able to read along. Very useful, for example, if you discuss sensitive topics!

Making your work easier for yourself by linking your various tools together. Ideal! However, there are some significant differences between Livestorm and Demio here. For example, Livestorm has a direct link with, for example, Hubspot, Linkedin and the Facebook Pixel and Demio lacks these links. Demio, on the other hand, has direct links with Activecampaign and Mailchimp, which Livestorm does not have. Both do have an integration with Zapier that makes it possible to link many other tools. WebinarGeek offers all of the above integrations in 1 tool, with many more options!
