Free Conference Doesn’t Work or Isn’t Working?

Are you using a free conference call service that isn't working?  There is a good chance your phone service, like MagicJack, Google or another carrier, is blocking the calls because they don't want to pay extra fees to the smaller phone company that is receiving the calls.  The federal government has allowed the smaller phone companies to charge the larger phone companies for incoming calls. The problem is that there are many phone carriers who offer free long distance service, and if they are offering you long distance for free (or next to nothing) then they are unable to pay…

Get Rid of Those Annoying Ads on Conference Calls

Annoying advertisements on conference calls can be intrusive.  That's why we don't do it.  In fact, we think the whole idea of placing advertisements on conference calls is very inappropriate -- especially if you are using a conference call service for prospecting and sales, or customer support. These ads are used to generate revenue for conference call companies that offer their services for free or next to nothing.  They probably think that it's a small price to pay for free conferencing, and just like television advertising, it goes with the territory.  For casual or personal use, most people can probably…

4 Way Calling, 5 Way Calling, 6 Way Calling

Most people have 3 way calling installed with their local phone or cell service, and it's pretty easy to figure out.  But what about a 4 way, or 5 way or 6 way call? Well, a group of people can all use their 3 way calling and create a "daisy chain" to get several people on the call at once.  However, the quality of the call deteriorates rapidly and the first person will hardly be able to hear the fifth person in the chain. So, if you are business or non-profit, your best bet is to use a pay-as-you-go conference call service.  You only…
