Jul 12, 2012, 09:15 ET from ReadyTalk

DENVER, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ReadyTalk, a provider of audio and web conferencing and webinar services, today announced a partnership with SurveyGizmo that enables customers to incorporate webinar recordings into survey questions to provide the audience with a more engaging playback experience.

SurveyGizmo for ReadyTalk combines ReadyTalk's easy-to-use webinar recording and playback tools with SurveyGizmo's enterprise-class survey software, which allows customers to streamline and tailor activities for marketing, sales and training purposes.

For marketers, SurveyGizmo for ReadyTalk improves webinar ROI by allowing customers to use recorded webinars as a part of the sales qualification process.  Important qualifying data is captured when a webinar recording is used as part of a survey.

"Marketers are very much concerned with providing sales with high quality leads; this integration allows marketers to capture relevant and highly valuable data provided directly by the prospect," said Beth Toeniskoetter, product marketing manager, ReadyTalk. "Additionally, it provides insight into how specific webinar recordings are received by a prospect, allowing marketers to refine messaging as needed."

By using recorded demos with embedded surveys, this integration offers a salesperson better understanding of a prospect's pain points, which accelerates the qualifying process.

"The ability to use an initial survey to uncover critical business needs and then deliver tailored messages early in the sales process gives a salesperson a significant advantage," said Robb Novak, survey architect at SurveyGizmo. "Additionally, there is an opportunity to save time by engaging prospects with a recorded demo rather than setting an appointment."

For companies with training and certification programs, SurveyGizmo for ReadyTalk allows human resources and training professionals to quickly and easily create and distribute on-demand training modules no matter where the audience is located. It is easy to measure retention with a survey-based quiz after each recording and ensure compliance by tracking how long a participant views a recording.

SurveyGizmo for ReadyTalk is available for free to ReadyTalk and SurveyGizmo customers. To see the integration in action, visit To learn more about ReadyTalk's audio and web conferencing offerings, including professional services and support for webinars , please visit, or on Twitter and Facebook.
