When I worked for a large corporate office, I would generate meeting invitations that included dial-in information for those joining by phone. At the scheduled time, those invited would call the number provided, enter an access code and presto... all 10 people would be able to speak to each other at once.
Why don’t small business owners and busy families use the same tools as the big guys? It is
simple, they think it will cost them a small fortune. But the fact is, there are now plenty of free options that will provide all of the basic services of the full-service providers.
The one that I like to use is www.FreeConferenceCall.com. You sign up for an account, distribute the dial-in information and start talking. The service is easy to use and they have never dropped any of my calls. They also have other services like Simple Event for groups up to 1,000 and Simple Blast that enables you to record a message that will be delivered to a list of phone numbers for just pennies per message.
How to leverage these nifty services?
