How to Hold the Fastest Online Meetings Ever with MeetingBurner

Welcome to the 10th episode of Toolkit Time. Man this should be on a major network by now – it’s past the pilot stage of 6-8 episodes! Any takers? Seriously?

Ok moving on. The point of this series is to introduce you to one new cool tool each and every Tuesday that’s going to help you streamline your business and make you more productive, effective, sexy and cool.

Perhaps not the last two things but you never know.

This week is all about those pesky meetings that can be some of the biggest time wasters ever. Are you sick and tired of using clunky, inefficient and expensive meeting software like GoToMeeting? Me too.

Here’s a new player in the field that’s extraordinarily fast, simple, sexy and free.

MeetingBurner Makes Online Meetings Absurdly Fast And Easy

It was thanks to one of my Social Media Club members that I even learned about this tool. Although they have thousands of clients now they’re still in beta so you need to sign on up for an account and trust me you want to.

Once you’re in you get  especially good customer service but it’s unlikely you’ll need it because this is one of the easiest to use meeting tools I’ve ever witnessed. They also have a worthy mission which I like:

The world wastes billions of dollars per year in inefficient and ineffective meetings and we are going to change that.

With MeetingBurner we want to build a community of online meeting fanatics who want to change the world by making meeting easier, faster, and more efficient.

MeetingBurner.com allows you to start meetings right now and share your screen with team members, clients, customers and even your dog (should your dog be proficient online).

Or you can schedule meetings and give people a free conference line and pin number or allow them to use Skype instead – like that don’t ya!

Meeting burner makes you more efficient

There’s no software to download or install, it all launches within your browser. The interface is clean and stylish and did I mention it’s currently free?

It’s about a thousand times faster |(ok a little exaggerated) than GoToMeeting, Adobe Connect and Webex and you have to watch their hilarious home page video on how they kick these big meeting players’ asses with their speed and ease of use.

My alltime favourite feature is that recording your meetings is no fuss and really simple and you get the final file as an MP4. Trust me if you’ve used other systems with their stupidly complex files that need to go through several conversions before you can even show them, you’ll be overjoyed at this too.

Here’s my tour around MeetingBurner and the cool features.

    Thanks for sharing this tool, Natalie. I am looking forward to give this tool a whirl. Many of my clients are corporate executives, so hopefully there will not be any firewall issues.

    @ExecutiveX There should be no issues but I’d be really interested to find out what you think so can you report back here with the results?? Thanks!

    @NatalieSisson Hi, Natalie! I did 3 test runs just now, and the system kept asking me to download Java to enable screen sharing. Is it supposed to do that each time? Had you used Skype to dial in, or did you use a landline? Skype kept going in and out, but the landline was steady.

    Well, I tested Meeting Burner with one of my clients today. Was very easy as you’ve demonstrated. However, when it came time for my client to share her screen with me, things got a bit messy. She too had to download the Sharing App, which was not quick. We had to end our session because the app never started on her computer. And then she got somewhat lost and wasn’t sure where to go. We had to finish our session using Mikogo. I was hoping to switch to Meeting Burner, but not convinced at this time. Not having to download the Share my Screen app every time would be a plus as well. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • Reds

    I think it must have just been her computer or an isolated occurrence. Downloading the sharing app shouldn’t take more than a few seconds. A click or two and you’re in. It’s worked really well for me!

    In short, start a remote control session with Ammyy Admin is really a breeze. After initiating the communication will be possible to transfer files between PCs connected, and send basic commands via shortcuts.

    Thanks for providing information about this tool, looks great! Another option is using on premise RHUB web conferencing appliances.
