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!
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.
