Web Conferencing has become a critical component of a vast majority of business' communication strategy. If you are not using web conferencing as a solution now, I would ask – why not?
I have come up with a list of uses for web conferencing. This is by no means a comprehensive list. I am hoping to give non-users some reasons to adopt web conferencing as well as giving current users some creative ideas on how web conferencing can be used within their companies.
Web conferencing uses:
- Training: You can conduct remote training sessions using application sharing as a visual guide.
- Sales: Use web conferencing to reach out to hundreds of people at once
- Lead Generation: The conference itself can be used as a lead generation tool. The recording can also be used.
- Internal Meetings: Ad hoc internal meetings are a breeze especially with remote employees.
- Thought leadership: Conduct a web seminar to discuss your topic of expertise to thousands.
- Investor Relations: Conduct IR calls with your shareholders and record the call for your records.
- Public Relations: PR firms can use the tool to disseminate knowledge about their clients to the media.
- Technical Support: Take control of someone's desktop to repair their software or computer.
- Podcasting:With the ReadyTalk service, you can turn your recordings into podcasts with the click of a button.
Above our nine uses of web conferencing, I just came up with off the top of my head. I am sure there are many more. What are some of the creative ways you use web conferencing? I would love to hear from you.
