New internet marketers are always on the lookout for free services. And the tradition of the internet is that those services are available. Sometimes, the services aren’t as good as the paid services. But frequently they are every bit as good as the charge services.
One of the high cost services that internet marketers need to absorb is the cost of conference calling. These services are important if you intend to host teleseminars.
But the cost of paid for services can be out of sight. For a 100 participant one hour call, one company quoted over $500. Which can quickly add up!
So what is a small internet marketer to do?
Well the good news is there are a number of free conference call providers who are able to provide top-notch services for free — or almost free.
Of course, there’s no free lunch. The key here is that the cost of setting up a telephone switch over VOIP is extremely reasonable now. And one teleseminar will involve many different people calling into the service. Most of whom are paying for long distance. The conference call provider simply receives a portion of the long distance rate in the form of a rebate from the originating telephone company. Effectively your customers are subsidizing your teleseminar without paying any extra!
So how do you find these wonderful free services?
The easiest way is simply to use Google to search. For example if you search for the phrase “free conference call providers” you’ll get roughly four hundred and twenty three thousand responses back. Of course, not all these services are in fact free. Many of them are inexpensive and many of them prefer to pretend (the $500 service above actually was retrieved using this search. And another advertised that they charged $15 per conference call or $60 per month for unlimited calls).
Despite this need for care when identifying which services really are free (and which are low cost and which are very expensive), a Google search is a great way to find free teleconferencing services.
