Incorporating conference calls and webinars into your sales strategy allows you to create another stream of income while building your email list. Email lists can be one of the most valuable assets a business owner has. Webinar and Conference Call guests give their email address to you in exchange for the event log in details. You can then use your list over and over again to generate more and more income.
A conference call is simply a telephone call where the host and guests can speak to several call participants at the same time. A conference call is usually done with a telephone, although it can also be done with the help of IP telephone service providers like Skype or with similar call applications. Many conference call services offer their own VOIP and free numbers for different countries. Conference calls can be either audio or both audio and video.
