ClickMeeting Pricing 

ClickMeeting offers three paid service plans. Unlike video conferencing services that charge per host, ClickMeeting's cost structure is based on how many attendees you want in each webinar.  

Starting at $30 per month, ClickMeeting's Live plan includes two presenters and 25 attendees. At $39 per month, you can increase attendees to 50, and $79 per month supports 100 attendees. You can host webinars for up to 1,000 attendees for $309 per month. The plan includes four video streams, and you can save six hours of recordings. Other features include 1GB of file storage, screen control, presentation mode, a whiteboard, Q&A, polling, private chat, call to action and event landing pages. There is also a rebranding tool and the ability to host paid webinars.  

The next pricing tier, Automated, supports three presenters and 25 attendees for $45 per month. You can increase the number of attendees to 50 for $55 per month, or to 100 for $95 per month. This plan includes everything in the Live plan, 10 hours of recordings and 2GB of file storage. You also can host on-demand webinars, autostream on Facebook or YouTube, and autopublish recorded meetings to Dropbox. With ClickMeeting, you can automatically send invitations, follow-up emails and thank-you emails. 

Pricing for ClickMeeting's Enterprise plan is customized based on your specific needs and expected webinar volume.  

The costs of all plans drop by up to 20% if you pay annually instead of monthly.  

The company offers a seven-day free trial that doesn't require a credit card or cancellation on your part, so you can safely test the software without being stuck in a subscription when the trial expires. 

Features

ClickMeeting is a cloud-based platform that offers high-quality video and audio streaming. In addition to its crystal-clear video and audio, the software has a wide range of useful features and tools.  

Some of our favorites are in-meeting polls and surveys for the audience, built-in chat for groups or private messaging, screen sharing for better presentation delivery, a waiting room with an agenda displayed that participants can read while they wait for the meeting to begin, and a whiteboard function for brainstorming and drawing.  

ClickMeeting supports webinar recording and storage, as well as branded webinar rooms and custom invitations. In addition, the service offers live streaming on social media sites like Facebook and YouTube.  

This video conferencing service maintains more than a dozen integrations, including those with Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Google Slack, Hubspot, Zapier and PayPal. ClickMeeting has an open API that gives developers the access they need to build integrations to other applications or software developed in-house.

ClickMeeting Pros

ClickMeeting doesn't have much of a learning curve. Its straightforward dashboard and user interface make it simple to launch or schedule meetings, create conference rooms, and share webinar links with meeting participants.  

With such a long list of features, ClickMeeting has a lot to explore, but the no-obligation free trial allows you to become well acquainted with everything it offers. ClickMeeting runs smoothly and reliably, and the features are simple to access.  

Another positive is that there is no need for an additional conference calling service because ClickMeeting gives participants the option to call in to every meeting by phone, opening your meeting to those who won't be in front of their computer or tablet when the conference starts. When participants receive an invite to a meeting, they get a link to connect online as well as a phone number. While participants who call in won't see the video feeds, they can still listen to the audio and comment, participating just as someone connected with their computer.

ClickMeeting Cons

ClickMeeting doesn't maintain a customer support hotline, but support is available by email. The company also maintains a live chat channel that is available Monday through Friday, from 3 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. In addition, there are video tutorials on the website that are very helpful in guiding users to troubleshoot their own problems.  

A second negative with ClickMeeting is that it isn't designed for hosting regular, daily types of video meetings. ClickMeeting is really best served for those looking to host recurring webinars.
