Conference Calls You’ll Want to Join
Why do a conference call?
Online conference calls offer more than just an audio connection and keypad controls. GoToMeeting conference call services provide video and screen sharing features that significantly improve the collaboration experience. They also enable VoIP and telephone callers to join the same conference line, so participants can choose whichever device they want to take part.
The advantages of conference calls for businesses
Conference calls have long been a business favorite for good reason.
Communicate quickly and effectively
Email and chat tools are essential to any workplace, but sometimes you just have to pick up the phone and talk things through. A quick conference call with everyone on the project can bring people up to speed, clear up confusion and, best of all, prevent those days-long, back-and-forth email chains.
Say goodbye to travel costs
It’s not always feasible to meet with remote prospects or clients in person. The costs of booking transportation and lodging quickly add up – and so does the time it can take. Enter audio conferencing. Schedule the call, share the number and have the conversation without setting foot outside your office.
Empower mobile workers
Even when the whole team isn’t in the same office, the meeting can still go on. Employees working from home or on the road can easily join the conference call from their own smartphone. Modern conference call services make the process even simpler with dedicated mobile apps that let you connect with one tap.
Step up your collaboration
Conference calls are no longer just audio only. With a cloud-based conference calling service, you can take advantage of screen sharing and video conferencing too. Showing your screen in real time simplifies remote presentations, demos and walkthroughs, while video conferencing can help you make real face-to-face connections.

Video Conferencing Frequently Asked Questions
The free conference calling services advertised online, meanwhile, depend on the infrastructure of remote phone carriers, which means there’s no guarantee of quality. Instead, the free conference calling providers have struck deals with these carriers to get a share of the long-distance fee for callers who dial into the “free” conference call. It’s a tactic called traffic pumping.
That may not seem like a problem if you have an unlimited voice plan on your phone, but some wireless carriers will block access to free conference numbers or restrict usage as part of your terms of service agreement. This means some callers may not be able to connect or might have to pay a hefty fee on their phone bill, especially if they’re calling from overseas.
Free conference calling services may help out in a pinch, but they’re not something you should consider building your business on. If you want to provide a professional conference call experience for your team and customers, start your free GoToMeeting trial.
