What service do you use for conference calls?
I get asked this question a lot.
Whether you're a startup or an established company, it's important to keep overhead costs to an absolute minimum. Unfortunately, this can often be difficult with the increase of globalization. So, how can we host conference calls with clients all over the world without spending a dime? Here's a great little tool I've discovered that will save you thousands of dollars on your long distance bill.
These guys are absolutely fantastic, especially if you’re speaking with clients in other countries and don’t want to be charged long distance rates.
Sign-up for free and they will issue you a unique call-in number, access code, and host code. Simply use these numbers whenever setting up a conference call with clients and you're ready to go!
They also offer dial-in numbers for 62 different countries around the world, saving your clients from having to pay long distance charges as well. Simply call in with your local number, but send your client the local call in number for their country and voilà, you're hosting an international conference call without spending a penny on long distance.
With Free Conference Call you can host calls with up to 1,000 participants, each using their own in-country dial-in number without any time limits. It also syncs with your Outlook and Google calendars for easy invites. At the end of the call, it will email you a detailed report as well as the option to include an audio recording.
They have a wealth of other great features including screen sharing, video conferencing and a live chat, but if you're looking for a simple, easy to use and free service to communicate with your clients or customers, I've been using these guys for years and they're definitely the way to go!
