The Standout Features of Crowdcast
Several features of Crowdcast have won the hearts of Okta:
- Dedicated Event Pages: This feature eliminates the need for Okta to use additional services or platforms to share event details. Crowdcast provides a dedicated space where all the essential information about an event can be organized and presented.
- Automated Event Recording: Crowdcast ensures that every event is automatically recorded. This is a significant advantage for Okta as it means that even if attendees are unable to join the live event, they can access the recording later. This feature enhances the accessibility and availability of the content.
- Follower Notifications: This feature notifies Okta's followers in real-time when an event is about to start. This timely alert system helps to increase attendance and engagement as it ensures that interested individuals are aware of and prepared for the live event.
- Engagement Follow-Up: After the event, Okta can send a thoughtful and relevant message to all attendees. This post-event message can be used to convey gratitude for attendance, provide additional resources or information, and foster continued engagement.
- People-Oriented Platform: Crowdcast offers a friendly and community-driven experience. This sets it apart from more conventional sales and marketing video platforms. This aspect is particularly valuable for Okta as it creates a more interactive and engaging environment for their audience, making it more likely for participants to actively participate and connect with the content.
