Written by shannon on December 24th, 2010

Web conferencing can sound a little scary or difficult to get used to but it’s really not that difficult. Just a small little learning curve and you’ll be a pro in no time. It takes very little time at all to get started. You can pretty much use the steps below to use providers such as WebEx, GotoMeeting, FuzeBox, or the service of your choice. Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to the fabulous world of web conferencing.

Step 1:

Download the application you want to use. You will most likely need to sign up for a free trial or open an account. Once you have signed up, you just need to click on the automatic set-up. Wait while your computer automatically installs the application.

Step 2:

Click on the application menu and select ‘meet now’ or the specific language for the application you are using.

Step 3:

Invite other people to the meeting. You can do this by entering emails, phone numbers, or sending an instant message to them.

Your attendees can choose to phone in or use their computer’s microphone.

Step 4:

You can choose to share something from your computer screen. You can choose to show your entire screen, or just an application.

Step 5:

The people in the conference can view what you see on your screen. You can share control of your screen with a participant. You can even shift whose screen is being viewed by the group.

That’s about it. Follow these steps and give it a try. It’s pretty easy and you will save a ton of cash by not having to physically be in a place to have a meeting. If used in a work setting, employees can be home with families instead of on the road.¬†Happy employees make a happy business. If you are meeting clients rather than employees, this is still an advantage. They can now stay home or be in a comfortable place and no need to fly around the world.

It’s really easy so whatever your plans are with web conferencing, give it a try and practice with some friends.
