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 wonderful 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.
