Free Conference Calling

When I started hosting an online-attendance option for my monthly Express Training, I paid for a commonly known web-meeting service. It was expensive and didn't include all the features I needed. So, I went shopping a bit more and found www.FreeConferenceCall.com

I have been using this service for over a year now, for my Express Training, for virtual training with groups, for team collaboration meetings, and for client meetings when we just can't meet in person. Here's what I like about it:

    It's free

    It's easy to set up and easy to use

    It doesn't require my attendees to download anything. They just need phone/internet access (unless they need to share their screen with me - then they need to download the app)

    It's free

    It doesn't cost extra for additional features such as recording calls or switching who's screen is being shared

    There's no limit (or at least one that I'll exceed) in regards to number of people who can join the call

    It's free

    I've had almost no technical issues. It's been fuss-free.

    They don't clutter my email's inbox with promos or announcements

    They don't clutter my attendee's email inbox with promos or announcements (that I'm aware of)

    There aren't any annoying ads. I'm honestly a bit confused how they can continue to offer so much for free.

    And one last time - It's free

What I have not liked about it: Their customer support was lacking (and even annoying) when I reached out due to the one issue I have had. Perhaps I just happened to get "that guy". Regardless, I've since figured it out and unless you're demonstrating PowerPoint slideshow tools while also connected to a projector; I don't think you'll have any issues with it.

I'm a longtime proponent of virtual meetings in an effort to increase workplace productivity. I don't think they replace all in-person meetings but I do think they can reduce the amount of time we spend in meetings. And certainly as I write this today, there are reasons beyond productivity to consider virtual meeting solutions. I hope this helps!

May you have blessings and balance and health!
