For many of us, a new year encourages improvement, change, and a resolution or two. In the current economic climate, I think it is safe to say that most resolutions for 2010 will revolve around saving money. Many businesses are cautiously waiting for the dust to settle, while others have unlocked the secret to surviving the tough market. Either way, throwing money around in 2010, does not seem realistic.
There is no denying that the companies who have embraced technology and social media, are thriving—and will continue to do so in the next year. There are simple ways of achieving this success and stability such as communicating through Webinars and Web Conferencing. Web-based meetings are tech-savvy, cut travel fees and scheduling conflicts, and with most providers they are easily recordable.
This method of communication has been a trending topic, and many companies are blogging, tweeting, and commenting about the power and necessity of online meeting presentations. This practice can be utilized in virtually any industry: sales, marketing, hospitality, human resources, finance, real estate, public relations, advertising, education, and so forth. Not to mention, every company, large or small, needs to meet with employees a few times a month to go over general business objectives. Why not do this from your desk?
A recent blog post by CyberMedia India Online highlights the advantages of online meeting and collaboration tools stating:
“With highly effective communication and interaction, it is easy for businesses to get started and even easier to scale throughout their various operations, with minimal impact on IT or internal operations. The web meeting helps businesses keep global workers connected and moving forward towards common goals. It helps companies make more money by spending less. Now that’s the dawning of a new business era all by itself,”
Sharon Lobo of CXOtoday.com writes about how various industries successfully implement webinars and web conferencing into their business—not only saving money, but increasing productivity. She explains that sales organizations use online meetings to make sales presentations and demonstrate products, and marketing professionals embrace real-time collaboration solutions improving quality and quantity of their outbound messages without increasing costs. She also touches on how other industries, like human resources, use this type of technology to train professionals from one location to groups in multiple cities, minimizing travel complications and expenses.
Not only does this type of collaboration and communication save everyone money in the long-run, but when choosing a webinar platform that is free (like Freebinar.com) there is absolutely no out-of-pocket cost! Whether it is a seminar, lecture, presentation, training session, or staff meeting, Freebinar.com is the place to go if you want to stay current, and save money.
