ClickMeeting is a web-based audio and video webinar platform that is suitable for organizations of various sizes. Among its primary offerings are interface customization, waiting room, on-demand webinars, webinar monetization, whiteboard, and presentation.
Teachers and consultants will find ClickMeeting valuable because it allows them to monetize their webinars. This is because the platform is integrated with PayPal, which processes secure transactions. This ensures that the financial details of users are kept confidential too.
The interface can be easily customized so that your audience gets a consistent experience. Just a few clicks here and there and you will be able to change the logo and colors, as well as other appearance settings. Your webinar room can easily be custom branded and you can change it to your heart’s content.
Scheduling and event options
ClickMeeting makes it less of a problem to create events, from ad hoc meetings to automated events. They even have a handy timeline builder where users can string together surveys, videos, calls to action, as well as webinars.
Another nice feature is it supports open, gated, and paid webinar events. Suffice it to say that it is one of the best when it comes to scheduling options. Out of the many platforms, I have tried, ClickMeeting is the one I like the most.
One of the things which users, unfortunately, call a complete disaster is the screen sharing feature of ClickMeeting. When hosting webinars, it is normal to switch screens between presentation and slides. Some people even demonstrate a few things in their browsers. To make things convenient, screen sharing is utilized, however, the ClickMeeting interface doesn’t work sometimes. Users sometimes saw a mix of nothing at all, a distorter presentation, and a highly pixelated or delayed screen.
A survey is a great tool to find out what exactly are your attendees thinking and what do they want to see. Compared to other platforms, ClickMeeting’s survey goes a step further by not limiting itself to one poll-style question. It gives you the option to create rich surveys.
You can add open-ended, single choice, or multiple-choice questions, as well as images. You can even make your surveys appear in live, as well as automated webinars. The results of your survey show up in recordings and you can easily re-use surveys created in the past. I must say that when it comes to surveys, ClickMeeting is head and shoulders above the rest.
Events are browser-based so users and attendees do not have to download any software. The webinar room is simple yet well-designed. You have easy access to all the tools you need to conduct a webinar, so you are not left wanting.
Another thing that other platforms lack is the Q&A mode. Attendees watching the webinar, either live or as a replay can see questions users are responding to. The Q&A feature is also implemented quite well. The only thing lacking that would make this feature perfect is for attendees to be able to upvote questions.
Funnel pages in ClickMeeting have some room for improvement. Users are only provided simple pages for their webinars. The branding options, as well as customization, are quite basic. Users cannot choose from several templates and the features provided are not enough to make a conversion-optimized webinar funnel. Users would have to use their very own landing pages for this purpose.
ClickMeeting offers three different pricing plans to users.
The “MyWebinars Pro” is the most popular as it has an array of features and has different prices, according to room size.
