You can see our pricing plans at Talk-Deck Pricing Plans. (Click on ‘Register Now’ to go to the online order form.) Currently the packages available are: Free, $10, $30 and $100 per month, with pricing levels determined by how long a presentation the user wishes to create (5, 15, 30 or 120 minutes), along with a defined number of times the presentation can be played (bandwidth). A big plus though is that you can create as many presentations as you want. You’re limited only by the presentation length of your package, and the number of times your presentation is played, which determines the bandwidth used. Each package comes with a defined bandwidth amount that should more than adequate for most corporate communication requirements but you can purchase additional bandwidth packages if required

Q: Can I use my Personal Account for business?
+-

You can use any Personal account for business presentations, but you cannot officially have a Personal account in the name of the business, only in your own name. All Corporate will be verified to ensure that the person opening the account has the right to post presentations on behalf of the business. If you change a Personal Account into a Corporate account, the same verification process will be followed.

While you can change a Personal account into a Corporate account, you can’t go the other way. ?Once an account is a Corporate account it stays that way, for legal reasons.

Q: Can You Tell Me More About Bandwidth?
+-

When we use the term ‘Bandwidth’ we mean the amount of presentation data that is downloaded by your audience in the course of watching your Talk-Deck presentation in the course of a month. Typically we compress our presentations to stream at a rate of about 6MB/per minute. Therefore, a typical 15 minute presentation for example will be about 90MB in size. If someone watches that entire presentation, you will use up bandwidth of 90MB. At the 150GB data transfer cap on the $30 per month ‘Presenter’ plan, this will mean a presentation can be viewed in its entirety_ about 1700 times. However, most presentations are not watched in their entirety. One of the big attractions for Talk-Deck viewers is that its very easy for the them to pick and choose what they want to watch, so your bandwidth useage is used up only for what they feel is important to them and what they want to watch.

Q: What If I Need More Bandwidth?
+-

If more viewings are required, more bandwidth can be added in bandwidth packages. A great presentation can generate a lot of interest. When yours does, we can automatically add bandwidth according to the pricing in your package, or we can ‘gate’ your bandwidth at a certain level and stop your viewers from seeing any more of your presentations that month.

Keep in mind if you’ve got a presentation that’s in such high demand that you’re constantly blowing by your bandwidth limit, you should be absolutely delighted! Why? Because that means viewers WANT to see your presentation. With the $30 ‘Presenter’ package, and assuming your viewers watch on average about 50% of each presentation, it will cost you 1.7 cents ($0.017) per presentation to reach each interested Talk-Deck viewer. Can you make a sales call or even a telemarketing call for 1.7 cents?

BTW, we’ll also send you an email once you have used the first block of additional bandwidth so you know your Talk-Deck is being viewed.
