You know, we are always looking for more effective means of communication. Effective communication results in better results for business, relationships, or teams of any kind, including non-profit organizations. Now, with invent of Internet and VOIP (Voice over IP), technology made teleconferencing via computers affordable. Web conferences have many advantages over face-to-face meetings, or teleconferences by phone.
Here are 7 ways you can save or earn money by using web conferences:
1) Save by reducing travel expenses, and time for business meetings, reducing high fees for long distance phone calls.
That's pretty obvious. If you have business with various branches, lets say, a manufacturing facility, a sales showroom, a design office, you'll spend a great amount of time and money to communicate between those branches. Coming together for a meeting includes travel expenses, both time and money. Or you might have close friends and relatives abroad. In all those instances, communicating with a web conference will save you time and money.
2) Send and share files and applications with people all over world.
Maybe you can use teleconferences by phone for some of above situations. But that includes only audio conference. What about being able to show them pictures, or, presentation slides? Let them see your face via webcam? You know, a picture is worth a thousand words. You can even collaborate on files, and applications through Internet.
3) Improve efficiency of your team by providing them on-job training.
You know, in any team, top %20 performers do %80 of work. It might be a sales team, an affiliate/mlm downline, or even a design/production facility. If you took 1-2 hours per week to have everyone in your team, learn from best of your team, how much more efficient and productive could your team be? Now, if you have a small team of 5-10 people, it might not be a big deal to hold a meeting, but think about having a team of more than 300 people on your team, scattered all around world. How would you possibly hold a meeting, or a training session?
