I’ve been using FreeConferenceCall.com and FreeConferencing.com to connect remotely with clients. I have been happy with my service from FreeConferencing and had switched from Webex after testing it.
But, I was wondering how FreeConferencing was planning to monetize with all calls and conferences being free and zero advertising… but today I found out how – with a sister company called StartMeeting. A premium service for audio and web conferencing. I haven’t checked it out yet but I am confident that, based on their track record with me, it will deliver. I’ll let them tell you about it below. If anyone has experience with StartMeeting, can you share your experience?
