This is not MBA type information. To sell more of everything we offer we have to get in front of the right people. We must connect with those people who are searching for the solutions we offer, that are ready to buy those solutions, have the money – and are willing to buy them from us.
For anyone who is already doing that and want to be more successful the next step is a no brainer. Just see a lot more people. The most effective way to do that (the only way in fact) is through group functions of one kind or another.
When you get in front of lots more people, if most of them are the right people and you do so often, you will make more money. And the best way to do group events was over the telephone by means of traditional conference calls, Teleseminars, teleclasses, etc.
Now that most of us have high-speed Internet access, Internet conference calls have taken hold and are truly altering the way people do business and communicate with each other around the world. One can use them for sales and marketing of course. And as every successful businessperson understands, keeping the business you’ve already got is always a lot more profitable compared with making new sales – so Internet conference calls are employed for customer service, warranty details etc.
They’ve made communications of all kinds, internal, external, and with the media, easier and less expensive than ever. The truth is, today most profitable business owners can not imagine running their organization at the peak of effectiveness without using Internet conference calls. Let’s take a look at the advantages of teleconference services.
The Internet has shrunk the globe and has made it a global community. Folks from different corners of the world are able to get in touch with one another and do business successfully.
Currently it’s common for companies of all sizes to have affiliate business partners and freelancing setups in numerous countries around the world. In case of a meeting or a conference, previously one of the most wasteful expenses a business had, you can’t be flying from one country to another to meet everyone. It is expensive in both time and money, not to mention that going to meetings keeps you from doing what need to be done on a daily basis.
Instead, you can use Internet conference calls to communicate effectively with a number of individuals simultaneously. You can have a presence in a number of cities, or countries for that matter, and still get to your son’s ball game.
Internet conference calls can be easily done with the help of your computer. What you need is very simple – a relatively fast and reliable Internet connection and conference call software or service. Once you install the software in your system, it is very easy to use it, since everything is self explanatory.
There are a number of companies that offer Internet teleconference services. The costs tend not to vary to a large extent – they are more or less the same with all companies, as the competition is really intense.
By and large, the more people involved in a conference, the more they charge. It can cost you anywhere from $25 to thousands of dollars, depending on the rental service you choose. A onetime conference call will cost you very little while a long term rental could cost you a lot.
Even then, it is incredibly cheap when compared to the costs of flying to different countries around the world and meeting each other in person for conferences.
Some services offer a more user friendly interface than others, one that is push-button friendly. Some Internet conference call services provide step-by-step tutorials making the set up easy and simple so you will have more of them – it’s in their interest as well as yours.
There are two types of web conferencing – audio and video.
Audio web conferencing, as the name suggests, allows you to talk to each other without seeing each other. If the number of people is less, you can do it directly. If there are a large number of people involved in the conference, you can seek the help of an operator.
With video web conferencing, you get to see each other while talking. Using this service, you can network with any number of people you want. In large companies, it is very common to see video conferences with hundreds of people interacting with each other.
And recently services have come along that offer the best of both by adding Power Point to the more traditional looking conference call, will all the Internet related bells and whistles
Internet conference calls are the best way to interact with people for your business needs.
They are simple, inexpensive, and very effective. What more can you ask for?
Most of us rely on occasional, often coincidental connections with our peers for the insights that could make all the difference. Conversely business owners who regularly integrate the experiences of their successful industry peers into their decision making process will certainly outpace those who simply set goals and hope for the best.
When we make better decisions we get better results. Business success is the result of continuously making better, more informed decisions. The best leadership decisions are those made in collaboration with people whose success we respect and whose opinions we trust.
When we harness to power of people we respect we make better decisions virtually 100% of the time. If you want to be even more successful in the future than you are today, a business to business leadership development mastermind group will show you how to stay focused on what’s important to you, your family, and your business.
