Today’s topic is online meetings.
Online meetings have changed dramatically in recent years. It used to be that you had to pay a huge monthly fee inorder to host online meetings…like go to meeting.com. Now I know the functionality is huge in go to meeting but you can get similar results using vyew.com. It’s free and is pretty awesome.
But you are apart of the social media revolition and you know there is more you can do. How about parties and hang-outs?
A twitter party consists of you going online at a specific time and having a meeting with those followers who chose to participate. In having a party you are using mentions and hashtags. This will help build your social media audience.
Hang-outs are good too. They are on google+. Use them and ask specific circles to participate. You can get in a chat room type setting or use the full webcam version. Talk about new ways you can use!
Also, we have a newer player in the game. A locations based application called meetup.com. This application allows you to schedule a meet-up at a specific location (could be virtual I guess). People say if they will attend or not.
Go ahead and try these techniques. See how they work for you. Good luck and happy coding.
