Video Conference Tools for You

Here is a list of video conference tools for you with my two cents included in it!

GOOGLE HANGOUT

Supports: Up to 10 participants for an unlimited duration.

My FAVORITE!!!

I live, breathe, and love google products. I have been using google hangout since they started in 2013 and have never looked back; it’s free, it’s functional, and it’s fun!!

If you have a Google account, you have access to Google Hangouts. For free Gmail and G Suite Basic customers, Google Hangouts allows for up to 10 people to chat in a video call. The service also supports simultaneous voice chat and will enable participants to join a conference via email or a shareable link.

WEBEX
Supports: Up to 100 participants for an unlimited duration.

Webex allows users in up to 52 countries to use a standard telephone to join any conference. Participants who want to use their webcams have a choice of website, dedicated desktop apps, or mobile apps.

 

ZOOM

They offer a free one on one account meetings for up to 40 minutes. What I love about zoom is that they have a drawing feature you can use while you are doing the session, and you can also give control of your screen to someone else.

Cons, I do talk a lot, and it has happened in the past that I need more than 40 minutes. Unfortunately, the system shuts off without warning at 40 minutes and can’t be extended.

Join.me
Join.me offers a 14-day free trial and is just $9.99 per month after that, with up to 5 users.

If you are not too techy, this is a very user-friendly product.

Skype
What I like about Skype is that you can “pay as you go” or go with a very inexpensive subscription, starting at $2.99 per month.

Skype is a great tool when you’re dealing with an international buyer. It’s a great global product that everyone is familiar with and already has the app on their computer.

I have used many of these platforms for years! And each one of them is slightly different. Review what features work best for your business and pick the right one for you!

Have a great week everyone!
