With employees and workforces continuing to spread further and further apart, conference calls are often the only way that necessary participants can all come together for a meeting.

Conference calls are usually quick, effective, and take less time to setup than physical meetings.

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 call etiquette

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 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.

We’ve increase caller capacity from 500 to 3500 callers!

In most situations, the more the merrier proves to be true in conferencing. Once you have more than 10 people on a all it’s most likely a “one person talks, the others listen” type of format (e.g lecture mode.) And, while this is often used by churches and non-profit organizations, we also have clients who host commercial teleseminars in the same format. In those cases, the hosts are getting a payment from the attendees, either per call or for a subscription to several calls. So indeed, increasing capacity 7X for these customers is a huge win! We’re proud to be able to push the limits with innovative technology!
