What are the biggest differences?

Zoom and Livestorm are both comparable webinar software tools. However, there are a number of important differences with regard to usage and features.

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 adhering 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 US companies to process data.

Livestorm is, just like WebinarGeek, a European company that is fully GDPR proof. After the Privacy Shield declaration, Zoom has worked very hard to also comply with the GDPR requirements.

Application vs. browser-based

Zoom was actually built as an online meeting tool. To use their webinar functionality you need to download an app. Your viewers must also perform a download first to watch your webinar. This work raises the threshold enormously.

Livestorm works completely in the browser just like WebinarGeek. This means that anyone can follow your webinar from anywhere. All you need is a working internet connection! Because of this low threshold, your webinars will attract more visitors and therefore be more successful!

I didn't wanted to invest a lot of time in getting to know the program, and WebinarGeek was very intuitive. It worked easy and like a charm, right from the start.

100% GDPR Proof

Are you sure that all your data is securely stored according to European guidelines? Then choose WebinarGeek. All data that you store in WebinarGeek is safely stored on servers located in Europe. WebinarGeek is completely GDPR-proof and ensures that all data is processed according to European legislation.

Do you work with an American party? Then your data and customer data are not safe, as the Privacy Shield between Europe and the United States has been declared invalid.







Downloads result in a lower attendance

Unlike desktop software, web-based apps are accessible anytime, anywhere, as long as you have access to a device with an internet connection. You can follow a webinar on desktop, tablet or mobile. By downloading and running an application, participation in a webinar becomes less accessible.

WebinarGeek is, just like Livestorm, fully web-based, this ensures that your webinars are very accessible to viewers.







Pricing

Perhaps the most important point for you as a user, the price! Both Zoom and Livestorm are in the higher price segment, but the difference in price is still considerable. For example, the prices at Zoom start from € 42 per month, but at Livestorm prices only start from € 89 per month! A significant difference. Especially compared to the € 9 per month where the prices of WebinarGeek start.
