The platform is equipped with a landing page builder to create beautiful registration pages, and an email notifications editor to customize your emails. You can also record your sessions and have them automatically transcribed so you can reuse them in on-demand webinars.

With Livestorm, you are also able to embed your registration pages into your website or blog posts, share them with social media, or even in your apps (with Zapier).

But how much does Livestorm cost, and which Livestorm plan best suits your webinar and event streaming needs? Let’s find out below.

  • Increase audience engagement through polls, and see real-time results
  • Market your products to your audience with well-timed calls-to-action
  • Use Livestorm plugins to customize the experience you give your audience in the event room. You can use room design plugins, file sharing plugins, etcetera.
  • Use different background designs to change the look and feel of your event
  • Live chat with your attendants in the event room
  • Use the question-and-answer tab to collect and organize questions coming from your audience. You can use the questions as an opportunity to identify and address key areas of concern among audience members, through medium such as a blog article, a video, a listicle, etcetera.
  • Screen sharing. Share your screen to ensure your attendees are on the same page with you.
  • Share additional content in the room. These could be articles, videos, audios or images. The idea is to increase engagement and discussion around your topic.

  • You can also display a live notification when answering a question, so that your audience know which question you are answering.
  • Use the people tab to keep track of registrant, team, and guest attendance.

  • Dial-in access in case of connection challenges.

Analyze

  • Access your data on Livestorm’s analytics dashboard. For instance, the participation report shows you the level of event attendance and participation.

  • Data export. You can export any kind of data, including chats and questions and answers.
  • CRM synchronization. Natively integrate Livestorm with your CRM to make your data accessible in one place.
  • Review data on who watched webinar recordings

An In-depth Lost at Livestorm Cost

Free Plan

Livestorm’s free plan allows you to host an unlimited number of webinars with unlimited moderators. It also allows you to have meetings instantly with a 4-person attendance capacity.

One of the surprising bits about this plan is that it allows you to access all its features, including the “all features included” discussed above. 

But there is a catch to all this generosity: you can only host 10 live attendees, plus it caps registrant capacity at 10 people locking out any potential leads that may want to attend your webinar in future. Event length is also quite limiting on the free plan as you can only hold an event that is 20 minutes long. 

Due to all these feature limitations, you’ll only find Livestorm’s free plan useful if you want to at the very least experience what a live webinar-hosting experience is like. You can for instance use it to conduct test runs among your team before moving on to the paid plans. Since it comes with the “all features included”, you’ll get the full software experience. 

I wouldn’t recommend using the free plan in events involving real customers as that will result in a bad experience if your event runs over the 20-minute limit. So limit it to in-company test runs only.

Livestorm Premium

Livestorm’s premium plan also has the “all features included”, as well as unlimited events and unlimited moderators. 

It has a 4-hour limit per event, which is pretty generous given that most events don’t typically run this long. 

It also permits unlimited event registrations, meaning that if you are experiencing a high volume of registrations beyond the limit of 100, you can schedule them for future events. Alternatively, as the premium plan comes with a “live attendees limit” add-on, you can purchase it to increase attendee limit to 250 or 1000. 

This plan also supports up to 16 simultaneous live speakers. Having live speakers at your event can turn it into an interactive platform for an active exchange of knowledge and ideas. The free plan does not support live speakers.  

As you can see, Livestorm’s premium plan is a lot less limiting than the free plan. But it also has some downsides that you need to consider before you sign up:

  • It does not support more than 1000 attendees
  • You have to pay an additional fee for every host. This, and the cost of the add-in, can make using Livestorm costly.

Livestorm Enterprise Plan

If Livestorm’s premium plan is not well equipped to handle your event needs, you can contact the support team to upgrade you to the enterprise plan. 

The first impressive thing about this plan is that it has triple the attendance capacity; you can hold events supporting up to 3000 attendees. 

This plan is billed monthly per every unique registrant who joins your events. It comes with these additional features:

  • Get onboarded by a dedicated expert 
  • Features can be customized to suit your organization 
  • There is no limit on the number of hosts in your events 
  • A dedicated customer service manager 
  • Have multiple workspaces but bill for them centrally
  • Business reviews
  • Priority support 
  • Advanced integrations 
  • Customized reports

How To Cancel Your Livestorm Subscription

You can cancel your Livestorm subscription if you don’t want to renew it. You can also delete your workspace if you are no longer interested in using Livestorm. 

You don’t have to delete your workspace if you intend to use it in future. Simply cancel or pause your subscription. This will retain data such as team members, workspace settings, integrations, and emails. Your account status will also revert to free. 

A lot of other data from your premium account, such as webinar recordings, guest speakers, registrations, and engagements with attendants will be however deleted. 

To cancel or pause your subscription by following these steps: 

  1. In the billing section under account settings, go to Livestorm premium.
  2. Click “manage my subscription”. 
  3. Click “cancel my subscription” in the panel that opens. 
  4. Read the text in the box that opens, and check the boxes if you understand. You’ll also be required to provide your reason for leaving, add some comments (optional), and click “yes, this is the end”. 

To delete your Livestorm workspace, follow these steps: 

  1. First, cancel your subscription using the steps outlined above. 
  2. Go to account settings. It’s in the account menu.
  3. Click on workspace profile then “delete my workspace”
  4. Confirm that you understand the implications of deleting your workspace and click on Yes, this is the end. 
  5. Finally, confirm deletion. 

That’s it! All your webinars and related data will be deleted. 

Note: Livestorm automatically deletes workspaces that have been inactive for a year. They will notify you before they delete.

Does Livestorm Have A Free Trial?

No. Livestorm does not have a free trial.

It has a free forever plan, which acts pretty-much like a lifetime free trial. 

This is because the free plan gives you access to all the features, but keeps your participant and recording limit so low that you cannot use the tool for active broadcasting. You can only experience it in test scenarios.

Conclusion

To finalize, here is a recap of Livestorm pricing: 

  • Starter: Free forever. It has all the features but it limits attendant capacity and webinar run time. This rules it out as a practical option for real-webinar scenarios. Use this plan to test Livestorm. 
  • Premium: $109/month or $76 billed annually. This plan also has a low attendance capacity (of 100), but you may extend attendant capacity using paid add-ons.  
  • Enterprise: Price is determined per each user’s needs.
