Wistia

Wistia is a video marketing software that helps you build your audience and grow your brand. While the platform has some impressive features, they are let down by insane price points, and lack of one-stop solution for everything video.

Your business deserves a full-stack Wistia alternative that’s cost-effective

Wistia offers some great features but it’s not a one-stop shop for all of your video requirements. If you are looking for an end-to-end solution, you can’t rely on a platform designed exclusively for marketing purposes, and that too only limited ways to do it. Like you can’t use all platform features on recorded videos.

Wistia offers a free plan, but you don’t get all the essentials. The paid plans start at $99 per month and, if you intend to choose the Advanced plan, you don’t really know how the costs are being calculated since it isn’t transparent and you know it only when you contact them.

StoryXpress is a feature-packed and cost-effective option — you get everything you need at one place right from video recording and editing to hosting and managing, at a cost that you can afford, plans starting at $8 per month.

Looking for Wistia Alternatives?

Here are three reasons to consider StoryXpress:

Full-stack Video Platform

StoryXpress is a full-stack video platform. You get all the tools required for video recording, editing, and hosting in one place unlike Wistia that requires you to buy two subscriptions.

Cost Effectiveness

Are insane pricing points holding back your video strategy? With StoryXpress, you’ll have unlimited access to all the basic tools you need without paying as high as you would with Wistia.

Transparent Pricing

If you choose Wistia’s Advanced plan, you don’t really know how the costs are being calculated since it isn’t transparent and you know it only when you contact them. However, the pricing for the StoryXpress Plus plan is mentioned upfront.

One-stop Solution

StoryXpress is a one stop-solution for all of your video needs. Be it recording, hosting or editing, you get all the tools with one subscription. On the other hand, Wistia requires you to buy separate subscriptions for video recording and hosting, thus making it not a very cost-effective deal.

Limited Set of Integrations

StoryXpress seamlessly fits in your software stack and offers hassle-free integrations with leading SaaS products such as Pipedrive, Calendly, Freshworks and Sendinblue. If you use any of these, you can’t integrate with Wistia.

Unlimited Video Uploads

If you are particularly looking for a solution to host and embed videos, Wistia is not the right pick for you. Even after paying equivalent of or more than approximately $99 per month, you still pay 25¢ per month per video file that you add. That’s not the case with StoryXpress that allows you to host and embed unlimited number of videos for a fixed monthly cost.

CName

StoryXpress lets you host your videos under your domain name. Adding a CNAME record lets you use your own domain on your video pages, thus ensuring domain and brand consistency. Viewers can transit between your website and StoryXpress video pages without recognizing that the content exists on two separate domains. Furthermore, using CNAME, your marketing automation platform identifies the activity from your domain AND the video view from your sharing page as having occurred on your domain and therefore belonging to the same visitor.
