Following up on my previous post about conference calling services, I asked a bunch of my LinkedIn contacts about what they use for their own conference calls. There’s a clear mindshare leader…
Try freeconferencecall.com—works fine for my opinion.
Are you familiar with Skype? It’s a great contact system. You make calls to hard line, cell phones or other computers. Computer to Computer (skype to skype) is a free call in the US. You can add people for conference calls on skype lines or to hard lines. they also feature a ‘chat’ or IM screen and history can be tracked on the screen. If you are calling from within the US you can call any US number all year for about $30.OOUS There is a fee for out of the country calls.
If you don’t need the long distance piece so much – and are just looking for Conference Calls — www.freeconferencecall.com as previously mentioned should do it.
I have also used freeconferencecall.com and TalkShoe, both make recordings available offline one on CD (FreeConferenceCall) or downloadable MP3 (TalkShow)—great for podcasts, plus they have an opt-in pay system that will host public talkshoe shows. Great for answering questions from multiple listneners and works live with a chat client. Both give you numbers and invites to manage callers.
The resounding answer seems to be FreeConferenceCall.com. They partner with GotoMeeting so that you can have a free conference call and show presentations remotely… this is particularly nice because it is also a fraction of the most popular alternative, WebEx.
I use www.jajah.com for all my calling. It’s Skype without the PC – SMOKING service, handles conferences and the rates are CHEAP. I use it for all my non-local calling from my cell phone.
Try VSee. It’s free and allows up to 11 video callers.
Try PowWowNow. They offer a free service.
We’ve had good experiences with AtConference.com, going on a couple of years now.
We have been using FreedomVoice for a few years now and they recently introduced a conference number. No reservations are needed and very eay to set it. We use it when needed and it gets billed to our toll-free number account.
Free Conference is an option.
