I just came across the freeconference.com website. They offer free conference call bridges as well as premium services such as on-demand recording or desktop sharing. It’s extremely easy to get started. I’ve now got a free dedicated number that I can hand out for on-demand or scheduled conferences.
What do you mean “You’re too small to need conference calling”? How about a quick three-way call with your associates discussing latest trends in your industry. Pay for the on-demand recording feature. Now you have a file that can be posted on your corporate blog (You have one, don’t you?) to help drive traffic to your site.
You are working on a last minute presentation and need input from a customer, a vendor, and someone in your secondary location. Viola! A conference call with on-demand desktop sharing to the rescue! You don’t have to worry about what remote desktop software is loaded on their machines. Your conference system handles the details.
These are two quick thoughts. What are yours?
