Making the Most of Web Meetings

Published Monday, August 09, 2010 2:06 PM

We've posted in the past about how global teams and nomadic workers can successfully use tools such as web conferencing to work across wide geographies and multiple teams. In our recent post Dial in, Log on: Your Conference has Begun  we shared tips for web conferencing best practices.

Now we'll look at other aspects of web conferencing including how to make the most of your money and how to best leverage successful conferences.

Cost Conscious Options

When a team of executives needs to meet, you can book 20 first-class flights or hook up a web conference. The math is pretty simple; web conferencing saves money. Top-flight web conferencing options such as WebEx , GoToMeeting and IBM Sametime make virtual meetings virtually seamless. However, these premium products may be out of reach for small companies or independent knowledge workers.

Here are a few resources on free or low-cost web conferencing options that will have your Beirut-to-Bombay-to-Boston meeting underway in no time:

Leveraging Success

 In our Web 2.0 world, gone are the days when meetings were solely a small group of workers sitting around the conference table. Web meetings can now promote your brand to an external audience; use webinars and web conferencing for online product launches and analyst and press briefings. Be YouTube savvy and let your successful webinars or web meetings live on; record and post the presentation so a wider audience can receive your message.
