How Do I Set Up and Organize a Conference Call?

Setting up a conference call is easy.  If you are a business or non-profit, chances are you won’t want to use your 3-way calling capabilities for important phone calls because there may be too many people “daisy-chaining” into the call which will degrade the quality of the conference.  To have a quality conference call, and to make it as easy as possible for all your participants, you’ll want to access a professional conference call bridge.  Using a professional conference call bridge is fast and convenient, and don’t worry, you won’t have to buy any expensive equipment to do it.

We can set up a conference call account for you in minutes and provide you with your unique passcodes to enter when you call the conference bridge.  Everyone just dials the conference call-in number and enters their passcodes and that’s it!  You are having a conference call.

You’ll get two passcodes — one for the leader or host and another for your guests.

Choices on the type of conference call you can have:

When you order your conference service, you’ll have plenty to choose from.  Click on the services to get more details on each:

1) You can choose a toll-free service that enables everyone to dial a toll free number to access the conference bridge.

2) You can opt to have a non-toll free service, either on a pay-as-you-go basis or unlimited flat rate.

3) You can get a local access number conference service that provides you a local number (84 cities) to call into.

4) For your top level and important calls, you can have an operator managed conference call.  Our operators will call each of your participants and place them into the conference.  Your guests don’t have to do anything, except answer the phone.

When using a conference call service like ours, your primary responsibility is to let each of your parties know when the conference call is scheduled.  Frankly, getting people to remember when to call in will be your greatest challenge since most people are forgetful.  It’s best to send your participants a few email reminders so they can have their phone or computer alarm go off just prior to your conference call.  That way, you will increase your chances of having folks remember to dial in.
