What's Your Choice to Get the Word Out?
Do you like to tell your stories, connect and spread the word online? Great! What's your platform? WebEx, GoToMeeting, On24, Proclaim Enterprise, TalkPoint, Skype, Google+Hangouts … there are many great choices out there. So many choices, so little time, right?! Okay, I'll confess. I'm an Internet junkie who has used a number of webcast and online meeting tools. It's wonderful that we have so many amazing ways to connect online.
Find the Best Fit for You
As a web communication professional, I understand that one size doesn't necessarily fit all when it comes to webcast/online meeting platforms. In a world where many of us communicate and collaborate online, it's important to choose the tool that's right for you. For example, Google+Hangouts may be a good tool for a small marketing department to use for catching up on the latest episode of Scandal and to discuss what worked best at the last tradeshow. (My team has used Zoom Meeting to collaborate online.)
On a larger event scale, let's say your national or global sales team wants to discuss the company's 1st quarter earnings or you're having a conference to talk about your company's vision for the year. (These kinds of meetings happen quite often, right?) For these types of events, you may be looking for a robust webcast tool in which quality, connection reliability, technical support and an attractive price point matter most. As I mentioned earlier, there are a lot of great choices out there. And, deciding which one is right for you can be mind boggling.
The Power of Connecting Online
Webcasts and online meetings are effective ways to bring people together on the Internet to inform, educate, train and even to entertain! They are very powerful, cost effective tools that cut across time zones and save on travel costs. These key reasons are why webcasts and online meetings have become important and popular communication components for companies, organizations and groups. Nowadays, a popular motto seems to be, "If we have an important meeting and we all can't meet face-to-face, let's meet online."
At Netbriefings, we believe managed service webcasting is a vital element of a company's overall communication plan. It's our goal to provide a powerful, quality, stress-free and cost effective webcast experience. In fact, we believe in this mantra so much we have made it our promise.
As a web communication professional I am curious. What criteria do you use to choose a webcast and/or online meeting platform? What tools have worked best for you and why? I'd love to hear your stories. And, keep on connecting online!
