How to Choose the Best Conference Call Provider

Even in 2019 with the increased use of the internet, texting, emailing, and video chats, conference calling remains the best way to conduct meetings in many scenarios. Whether you’re holding an informal meeting with members of a small team, or you need to host a huge investor update meeting, conference calls are the perfect format to easily and effectively bring everyone together. 

Phone calls are simple and familiar. Plus, you can get a lot more accomplished on a conference call than you can on a long chain of emails. With everyone together at the same time, you can get answer to questions, review progress, and even assign out tasks and action items. 

So, with conference calling as a necessary business tool, how do you pick the best conference call provider? There are tons of different phone conferencing service providers out there and while each one offers the same core conferencing features, there are some key differences that will come into play as you choose which one is right for you.

So, how do you host an effective and productive conference call? In this post we’ll cover some of the most fundamental conference call tips for leading productive calls.

Conference calls can be intimidating. Especially if there are a lot of people on the call, you’re trying impress a potential client, or there are language barriers between international participants of the call.

The best way to ensure that you and your company come across in a positive light during a conference call is by following simple conference call etiquette.

If you’ve ever been on a phone conference before, you’re likely aware that there’s an unspoken code of behavior that is very different from regular calls. The introduction of additional callers plus the potential complications from adding phone conferencing technology into the mix can make things complicated.

If you haven’t done a conference call, however, then you might not know about the commonly agreed upon set of rules that accompany them. And it’s not your fault! These guidelines aren’t formally taught in any school, even though everyone seems to know them. Here are a few tips to make sure your conference calls go off without a hitch.

Earnings Calls and Large Webinars

When our founders started Branded Bridge Line in 2012, they didn’t imagine that hundreds of people would be on a conference– much less thousands of conference participants. But we discovered that big companies and big brands also want that same polished, professional, customizable solution that we created for routine conference calls. Since then,  we’ve had so much interest,  we have launched the first totally branded solution for earnings casts, etc.    We can support as many callers as you invite, and provide an economical, crystal clear audio solution that you can trust day in and day out. The workflow of these large calls is naturally a bit different,  and we’d be happy to give you a demonstration of how easy it is to set up.   Just reach out in chat and we’ll get any questions cleared up.
