    Stealth Seminar lacks sufficient info and details on the site. There is so much setup work involved with this, I need to feel that I can rely on that backend script host and most don't leave me feeling warm and cozy.

    With CDN, I needed more info to decide, but on their site it said, "Now you can get Webinar Selling Machine (software and training system) for only $247.00 July SALE $227.00 (single webinar license). Multiple webinar license details are on the check out page." It's not clear if this is a monthly fee, annual fee, one-time fee. . . . And I needed to know more about "multiple" webinars and I don't want to go through the checkout process to find out. That makes no sense. They should provide a chart like so many other sites and show the differences. When I tried to call, I got voicemail - of course. Left 2 messages and never got a return call. So, they are out. No support on the front means no support on the back end.

    I have sat in on automated webinars for the Webinar a GoGo system and I know a guy who uses it. Seems like it could be a winner.

    Brunson's system may be okay, but again there is little detail and few specs - just a sales page. I guess I have to sign up for the trial at $4.95 just to find out the nitty gritty. To me, that means I am paying $4.95 for the specs.

    I'm not sure if hosting the webinars on their servers is a good idea. Probably better to use Amazon S3. Brunson mentions about possible bandwidth issues because webinars are hosted on their servers.

    Thing is, it's mostly a matter of a script and for anyone planning to do it in a big way, might as well get your own script and cut out that cost and possible server problems.

    I'm pretty sure Ryan Deiss has a script for this, but don't know if it's available to anyone.

    Anyhow, as I work on my piece, I will continue looking into the automation side.

    I just don't "get" the whole automated webinar thing.

    On the outset it looks and sounds pretty useful as a service - but then when you start thinking through it, really what's the point of having a separate service to do what you can essentially do as a video that requires registration to access in a protected members area?

    The timed delivery maybe to make it look like it's a real webinar? Seems expensive for just that ability - and you could probably figure out a way to even spoof that too.

    What am I missing here?

      I believe its the ease of use for people who know their subject matter but who are not technically adept and don't want to have to go through learning a new system

      I run webinars and I can see the benefits of being able to schedule webinars to run when you are otherwise unavailable...and I don't particularly like to get involved in tech stuff and would prefer not to have to pay someone to do it each time I need to get one setup either.

      So I guess it is relative convenience.

    Hi Michael,

    The theory behind doing the automated wbinar versus a video with registration is it is more event-based. It adds some percieved scarcity because it will be on this date and this time, and then afterwards you also have a replay only available at a scheduled time, then finally they fall into the last chance to download the video.

    It creates a more solid commitment with the user to show up at a specific time to get the content. They are more apt to take action then someone that simply opted-in to view a video.

    The other benefit is to prerecord a webinar and play it through the automated system, instead of trying to do it live where more problems could happen. Webinars are much more tricky than teleseminars. More things available to go wrong.

      As long as the content is good, there's nothing wrong in broadcasting a webinar that was recorded in the past. Fresh new attendees will still find it valuable won't they?

      If you are a War Room member you can get I think if the offer is still there 500 seat free membership, from all accounts it is a very good system and works well , you get to make the video on your computer of your webinar first so there are no ums and ars etc etc and then put the finished product up on there server then just pick the days you wish to run it.

      Hope this helps

    I just looked at Mike Filsaime AUtomated webinar generator.

    The concept and strategy is sound however these scripts are rubbish... I say rubbish if they rely on self host auto responders like Mike Filsaimes script.

    Your follow up emails will never make it through the filters... might as well call it a night.

    I dont know about the scripts mentioned above but Filsaimes script uses self hosted autoresponder (you host on your own server or his server). Delivery rates will be abysmal.

    It may be fine in the beggining but you'll see it drop drastically.

    You need to use a service like aweber but you cant because these scripts create custom URL's, they track who stays, and who leaves when, etc... this essentially is the whole value of the scripts but they are rendered useless because it relies on self hosted autoresponder.

    rubbish I say.

    Hi,

    Does anyone tried the Easy Webinar Plugin for WP ?
    • Profile picture of the author hustlinsmoke
      I have the plugin and it has alot of flaws and throws me alot of errors in Wordpress, After installing and testing it, I gave up. You just must have a media server to properly run your own script. If you run many webinars I do not know of a hosting provider that would let you stay with them on the bandwidth that they use up.

      This is what all the scripts and memberships are not cheap, takes alot of resources to run these. I am in the process though of finding me someone to build me a script then will put it on a media server and go from there.

    Hey,

    These are biggest benefits that clients tell me when comparing EBS and StealthSeminar:

    1. StealthSeminar actually streams. EBS does not stream so if someone goes away, changes computer, visits fb and comes back, ebs goes back in time and starts at a fixed point each time - revealing it is a video. We stream. So if someone is gone for 10 minutes, when they come back the presentation is 10 minutes in the future. We are an actual webinar service, EBS is more of a video player with the buttons removed.

    2.*** We work flawlessly on iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch. EBS does not. You can see the comparison here to EBS:
    *** NOTE: These devices are approx 20% of the traffic online now so to not get this right, is massively costly for most people. Those users also on average spend 20% more than computers online ( http://s3.amazonaws.com/stream777/bl...nfographic.jpg).

    3. We have quality support times, you can see the average ticket response time on the front of stealthseminar up in the top right.

    4. We set up your events for you, free.

    5. We guarantee your events will run.

    I'm not saying we are right for everyone, but we work hard and try to do the best job possible. In fact, we had another update today.

    Are we more money? Yep. If expense is more important then ROI, go EBS.

    Best regards,

      /sigh...

      There is a reason as of why EBS has outsold Stealth Seminar and has indeed become the world's best selling automated webinar platform BY FAR, serving thousands upon thousands of customers all over the globe... That wouldn't have happened if EBS was just a "video player with the buttons removed"... :rolleyes:

      But I won't get into a battle with Geoff in this thread on which platform is best. That's just not my style.

      Instead, I will simply let our paying customers share their experience with EBS: Evergreen Business System | Case Studies .

    If you'd like a no-frills automated webinar software, Strong Webinar (our own solution) might be a good fit. We've just made it a freemium product to help out small businesses who need it the most.
    • Profile picture of the author magentawave
      I see you are no longer offering Strong Webinar. Did you stop offering it because it required too much support?

    Has anyone purchased or looked into the newest creation by Filsaime? - EVER-WEBINAR?

    Was just recently offered for $197/yr ........ 50% off the alleged regular price of $397/yr. Looks like an updated version of his Evergreen Webinar System.

      I've been using the beta version for several months and it works really well.

      It has the same dashboard as the WebinarJam Studio and if you are used to running live webinars on that platform then it is an easy switch to just run live and then clone into an evergreen.

      Good things like injecting pre-recorded videos into your live and also screen cam sharing in the live content and your live chat is all brought across into Everwebinar plus you can add additional chat questions and answers to prompt viewers at the right time to correspond to specific offers.

      Can also do "just in time" webinars based on when the prospect arrives on your landing page and can also schedule in prospect's local time...so if you are promoting a 7pm webinar it is 7pm for everyone in their own time.

      Lots of cool features and integrates well with all auto responders and plays well with Infusionsoft.

      I don't know whether I would have used it as a stand-alone solution but because Webinarjam works so well on live it is a nice addition to have.

    So anyone know what the lifetime pricing will be and how long it will last? How many OTO's are there going to be?

    Dear Anonymous,

    My apologies for the confusion. We do not count each webinar replay attendee as a webinar. Please tell me what channel you attempted to get an answer from for 4 days (phone, live chat, ticket support)? I will get that straightened out so it does not happen again.

    Thanks,
