The Who, What, Why and How of Web Conferencing
May 26, 2011 @ 03:04 PM | By Sara Steele

Web conferencing isn't new, but it's only in the past few years that companies like InterCall have made it affordable and user friendly enough for anyone to use. From entrepreneurs holding a press conference to Fortune 500s holding investor relations meetings, web conferencing is useful whenever geographically distant individuals or groups want to interact with one another—whether that means across town or across the world. That covers the “who.”

What Can Web Conferencing Do For You?
“A picture is worth a thousand words.” “Actions speak louder than words.” We've all heard the axioms. Let's face it: Listening to someone drone on for 30 to 45 minutes about their great product or service or staying focused during a brainstorming meeting over the phone gets tedious. Web conferencing brings people closer together to share pictures, ideas and even words in a more dynamic way. Whether you're selling a service to prospects or selling an idea to an existing client, web conferencing helps you get your point across more quickly and easily.

Why Use Web Conferencing?
This is an easy one: to save money. Travel costs a lot in terms of cash and lost productivity. With the right web conferencing software, holding a web meeting is quick and easy. Want to get closer to someone across the world? Use the web.

How Do I Sign Up for Web Conferencing?

Web conferencing is available with three models: hosting service, software and appliance.

An appliance, unlike the online hosted solution, it is offered as hardware. It is also known as "in-house" or "on-premise" web conferencing. It is used to conduct live meetings, remote training, or presentations via the Internet.
