On demand, 24-7 conference call service is offered by nearly all conference vendors in various formats to fit budget conscience users. With the advent of global communications, and with business contacts and associates scattered throughout the world, the availability for 24-7 access has become ubiquitous.
Regardless of the time of day, conference users can access conference bridges on-demand to conduct business with no need to make reservations. When you sign up for a conference service you will be provided a call-in number and passcodes to enable you to begin your conference call at any time with any number of participants. You will either dial a toll free number, or a regular local number to get into your conference. Regarding costs, you can choose to pay a per minute cost or a monthly flat rate that provides you unlimited usage.
24-7 phone conference calling is gaining in popularity because it is cost effective and convenient. No matter where your contacts are in the world and no matter what time zone they are in, everyone can easily pick of the phone to stay connected. Maybe it's a software development project you are advancing in India. Or a manufacturing deal in China. Your contacts can collaborate and share ideas easily over the phone.
Scheduling is easy and is usually done with email notices sent out to all the participants, usually a couple of days before the conference call. Reminder email notices are sent closer to the actually start time.
Of course, all of this contrasts with the "the olden days" when the only conferences were provided by AT&T and you need to reserve an operator's assistance ahead of time. Conferencing was expensive back then but was not available on demand. Not only that, but many places in the world were not even wired for telephones. Today, nearly every corner of the world has access to wired or wireless phone technology. That fact itself has accelerated the use of conferencing as an important and essential business toll in a world economy that never sleeps.
Even in the event of disaster, most conference bridge service providers have redundant systems and back up plans to transparently re-route conference traffic. As a customer, you would never know the difference if you were using another back up bridge.
So whether the sun is rising or setting wherever you are, rest assured that the conference bridges you use never take a break.

Audio teleconferencing services are proving to be extremely valuable for business organizations and non-profits that are looking to save time and money communicating with associates, customers, prospects and membership.
In fact, audio teleconferencing is probably the simplest, easiest and fastest way to see immediate savings in increased productivity, faster decision making, and reduced travel and meeting costs. There is no ramp up time or investment, because the savings begin the minute you pick up the phone to start a phone conference call. Best of all, you don't need any special equipment or hardware to get started.
Setting up an audio teleconference service can be done in a couple of minutes. There are several different kinds of audio teleconference services and you need to pick out the right one for you.
"Pay as you go" audio conference plans are popular because you only pay for what you get -- no more or less. They are based on a per minute rate per person. In other words, 10 people on an audio conference for 10 minutes would equal 100 minutes. If for example, your toll free conference number was charged at 9 cents per minute, your cost for 10 people on the conference for 10 minutes would be $9 (100 minutes times 9 cents.) There is usually a slight premium paid for the advantage of using a toll free service, versus a non-toll free service. But either way, pay as you go plans offer audio conference users many benefits.
Another alternative, if you are a heavy and consistent user of audio conferencing, is a flat rate conference service that provides unlimited usage for set amount every month. For example, you could pay $29 a month for all your conference needs, and you would pay that flat rate whether or not you actually used the service. It can be extremely cost effective, however, the only catch is that the service does not provide an 800 conference number. Everyone who has to call into the bridge uses a regular non-toll free number. (Of course, if you have free long distance bundled with your local service, or are calling from a cell phone, you would not incur any expenses.)
All in all, audio teleconferencing has become a valuable addition to a suite of outsourced business solutions that have revolutionized the way people do business and communicate. Add in web and video conferencing, and you have created a new virtual environment where you can not only talk to colleagues and customers, but see and interact with them as well. Technological breakthroughs continue to make the world flatter and more accessible and those businesses and organizations that use cutting edge communication tools to improve their productivity and work flow will reap the greatest rewards.
For more information about audio teleconferencing and pay as you go conference plans, give us a call. We look forward to serving you.

Toll free "pay as you go" conference calling is the most popular way businesses and organizations collaborate with colleagues and customers. It's easy, simple, convenient, and the fastest way to get everyone on the same page.
There are other conferencing systems and techniques that come with more bells and whistles -- things like web and video conferencing -- but the staple of today's American office is the simple phone conferencing. Everyone just picks up the phone wherever they are, dial in, punch in the PIN code, and that's it.
Pay-as-you-go conferencing is also a straightforward and standard billing model that has proven to be popular with businesses and non-profits. The reasons: there are no long term commitments, no monthly minimums, no set up fees, and best of all, you just pay for what you use -- no more or less. Moreover, you don't have to pay anything until after you use the conference service.
While there are conferencing plans that enable you to pre-pay by purchasing a certain number of minutes, similar to monthly cell phone plans, pay-as-you-go is preferred by those who only want to pay for what they use -- no more, or less. It is an ideal way to automatically reduce expenses during slow months or period of time when conference is seldom or just occasionally used. If conference calls spike, then it would indicate that business is on an upswing and conferencing costs are in line with company revenues.
Also available is non-toll free conferencing, mostly used for internal company calls when having a toll free number is not necessary for the convenience of customers or prospects. You can also pay-as-you-go for non-toll free on a per minute basis, or get a "flat" or "fixed" rate account that provides you unlimited usage.
So why is toll free, pay-as-you-go, phone conference calling winning over so many customers? First and foremost, it presents your customers or prospects a professional image of your company and shows that you are serious enough to provide them a toll free number, at your expense, to speak with them about your products and services. Second, competitive rates have made it very affordable and you can get toll free for less than the price of a long distance call several years ago. And third, you only pay for what you use, after you use it. You are never in any risk for buying minutes that are unused or can't roll over.
All indications point to the continued popularity of per-minute toll free phone conferencing throughout the United States and Canada.

There are many ways to make and have a conference call. How you do it depends on the purpose of the conference. For instance, is the conference for a casual family or social purpose? Or would it be for a professional or business reason?
For a friends and family conference, there are a number of free services that are available where you can connect over the Internet. For example, Skype, Yahoo or MeBeam.com are known for providing free desktop video conferencing capabilities. Using those services is fast, easy and very inexpensive.
However, if the purpose of your call is for business or non-profit work, then you may want to consider more professional services that provide privacy, functionality and reliability. There are dozens of phone and web conference service providers who would be happy to accommodate you -- each with their specialties and rates.
Set up is easy and there is usually no cost to set up an account. You can get a flat rate teleconference service which gives you unlimited usage, or pay as you go on a per minute basis. Pay as you go plans are great for occasional users since you only get billed for what you use, when you use it. The most important decision you need to make involves the choice between having a toll free conference number to access the conference bridge, or just a regular long distance number you can call. Obviously, toll free service is more expensive.
Once you sign up for your conference call account, usually online or over the phone, you will be emailed your call-in number and passcodes. You'll get one passcode for the host or moderator of the conference call, and another for the guests or participants. Everyone calls the same number, and puts in their respective codes. More than one person can call in on the moderator code. The moderator(s) will have a set of controls they can use to perform several functions, including muting all the participants so only the moderators can be heard and the background noise is eliminating.
The next step is to invite everyone by calling or emailing them the coordinates of the meeting -- the time, the call in number to use, and the passcodes to use. If you are having a web conference or video conference, your participants will also need the web address to log into. Please remember, conferences are like dentist appointments -- people have a tendency to forget about showing up. So, it is important to send a stream of reminders.
On the high end of conferencing is an operator assisted call. Participants don't do anything except answer their own phone when a professional operator calls them and places them into a conference. Very convenient, very professional, and gives a good impression, especially for business calls.
Also, it's a good idea to remind participants to call from a quiet place without distracting background noise, and to use the mute button when coughing or sneezing. One person's sneeze can be heard by dozens of people. Also, make sure that everyone is reminded to NOT press their Hold button if their phone automatically plays music on hold. Tell them to press Mute instead because you don't want their music to be interrupting or ruining your whole conference. Calling from a regular land line phone is also helpful, since many of today's conference bridges are challenged to merge the analog and Internet phone technologies. A bad cell phone connection can make a conference call more difficult as well.
Many conference services have a web control feature included for free with their service. In a situation like that, where someone has distracting noises or has accidentally starting playing music, moderators can mute them from their web controls. Otherwise, stay focused on your topic, speak slowly and clearly, and try to keep your call brief. That will insure a successful call.

Pay as you go phone conference calling is an ideal program for occasional conference call users. The reason: You only pay for what you use. Rather than purchasing bundled plans that provide services you may not need or want, pay as you go conferencing rates are based on the exact number of minutes you use -- no more, no less.
Ironically, the large corporations who are heavy conference users, still operate with pay as you go per minute conference plans, even though they would be much better off switching to unlimited flat rate conference plans. Again, pay as you go conferencing plans are best suited for business and organizations who use conferencing on a limited or occasional basis.
There are two primary pay as you go conference services:
1) Toll free conference service: Participants of your conference call dial a toll free number, type in a passcode, and they are instantly placed into your conference call session.
2) Non-toll free conference service: Your participants dial a long distance number. This is ideal for internal company calls or situations where having a toll free number is not important.
Needless to say, toll free costs slightly more than non-toll free. So, one of the things you need to decide before getting a conference service is to determine if you want toll free, or non-toll free.
Unlike operator assisted conference calls, most pay as you go plans require no operator or help to set up. No operators are necessary, and you don't have to make reservations -- your conference lines are open 24/7 and you can conduct a conference anytime you want. You can keep the same passcodes and use them continuously, or if you want, change them on a regular basis. Whatever works.
Most plans come without any long term contracts or commitments and you can discontinue the service at any time without obligation.
Better yet, there are no set up fees and you can set up an account to use immediately, or at a later date, at no cost.
So, how do you find the best conference call company that offers the best rates? Search for a company that is straight forward with their rates and avoid those with hidden fees. With pay as you go conference call service, you can save as much as 60% on your usual cost of conferencing.
This service is user-friendly and you're only charged for the amount of minutes you use.

Per minute conference calling, also known as pay-as-you-go, is a service that you can obtain without the need to purchase any hardware or software.
Charges are based on the number of minutes you use -- no more or less. The number of minutes you use is based on the number of people on the call and the length of the call. For instance, 10 people on a conference call that lasts 10 minutes would consume a total of 100 conference minutes. In another example, 5 people on the call for 60 minutes would total 300 minutes.
Per minute conference calling services usually have two different per minute rates. One rate for toll free service, and another rate for toll service.
Toll free conferencing service is a little more expensive than non-toll free service because it provides more convenience, and adds a level of professionalism, especially if you are using your conferences for sales purposes to prospects or customers. You wouldn't want your sales prospects to go to the added expensive of dialing a long distance number. Dialing an 800 number for a conference call gives everyone a strong impression that you consider the call is important and that you are not taking it casually. (Since all the actual 800 numbers have been taken, you will probably be assigned an 866, 877 or 888 toll free number to place your calls.)
On the other hand, toll service is very popular because it is priced less than toll free and because a high number of users have free long distance anyway, bundled with their local phone service or cell phone plan. For non-toll free service, you call a regular long distance number with an area code. If there is a charge, you would be billed a long distance fee from your carrier, such as AT&T, or Sprint or Qwest. Non-toll free service, otherwise known as toll service, is very convenient for internal business or internal organizational calls. The vast majority of conference call users in the United States use non-toll free conferencing.
Among the users of toll conference calling are independent network marketers who use it for audio business presentations and opportunity plans for recruitment purposes. Network marketers also use it for product announcements and sales promotion activities.
Overall, this method is the ideal solution for the occasional user because you are only charged for what you use. If a couple of months go by and you don't use the service at all, there is no charge. In contrast, heavy or regular conference users are probably more suited for flat rate conference calls which provide unlimited calling for a fixed monthly rate. Nonetheless, per minute conference calling services will continue to provide hundreds of thousands of businesses and individuals a convenient way to communicate and collaborate for years to come.

With the new emphasis on business cost cutting, large and small businesses are embracing conference calling as the best way to streamline communications, limit travel costs and avoid meetings that can sap precious time.
Business conference calling is by far the most convenient way to collaborate and the fastest way to move projects and proposals forward. And yet, there are still companies that have yet to adopt phone conferencing as part of their culture.
Conferencing is simple and inexpensive. Telecommunication costs have been plummeting for the past 30 years and calls that used to cost 25 to 50 cents per minute can now be made for next to nothing. On the other hand. travel costs and gas prices have gone up dramatically during that same time period. So, when it comes to saving time and money you can either travel across town, or across the country, or just pick up the phone.
Conference services come in all shapes and sizes and can be tailored to fit any size budget or needs. There is no need these days to purchase or maintain expensive hardware since there are many services available that can provide access to reliable conference bridges for much less. In the vast majority of cases, your cost per minute of usage is much less when you buy the service versus when you buy the equipment, particularly if you have to pay staff to maintain it.
When you open a conferencing account, you get a call-in number and two passcodes. Everyone will call the same call-in number, which can be a toll free or non-toll free number. Then, you will be prompted to put in your assigned passcode. Conference leaders, called hosts or moderators, will punch in their passcode and conference participants, also known as guests or conferees, will punch in their passcodes. The reason there are separate passcodes is because conference leaders have access to several commands that control various aspects of the conference. But that's not to say that only one person can be the conference leader. In fact, any number of people can call in using the leader's passcode. One example where this would be needed is when two or three people will be talking or presenting. When one of the leaders punches a number to begin "conference or lecture mode" -- all the participants will be muted and only those who called in with the leader's code will be heard.
Conference services vary from unlimited flat rate conference services to pay as you go conferencing where you are charged per minute of usage. All in all, you'll find conference calling for business an economical way to avoid meeting and travel costs and to expedite projects that need attention. Best of all, colleagues can call from anywhere -- from behind their desks, from the golf course club house, or from their home swimming pool! No more "I can't make the meeting" excuses!

Toll free conference bridge services are readily available and can save businesses and organizations a substantial amount of money because there is no need to buy expensive conference hardware or software. In fact, most conference vendors do not charge a start up fee, and you can use the service on a pay-as-you-go basis. You can get set up in a manner of minutes to begin using toll free conferencing.
As a business consumer, you have a couple of options when it comes to choosing what toll free service is right for you.
Your first option, is a pay-as-you-go plan, which is based on per minute pricing, and includes all incoming conference calls from the United States and Canada. As an example, 10 people on a conference call for 10 minutes would be a total of 100 conference minutes. You would multiply the per minute rate times the total number of minutes (in this instance, 100 minutes) to calculate your cost of the call. Depending on the set-up, you would be charged on a credit card, and sent a receipt.
The advantages of this option include only paying for what you use -- no more or less. And if there are some months you are not conferencing at all, there is no cost. That's why this option is ideal for the occasional or casual user.
Your second option is to purchase a set number of discounted toll free minutes per month. This is very similar to how cell phone plans operate, when you buy a certain amount of minutes each month and pay for them whether you use them or not. Some refer to this as a "bucket plan" since you get a bucket of minutes. We call it our "Supersaver Toll Free" conferencing program.
This option is ideal if you are regular user and have a general idea of how many conference minutes per month you will use. When you break down the per minute pricing, this option is much less expensive than the pay-as-you-go per minute plans. Even if you overestimate the number of minutes you will use, you can still save money. But then again, you will be billed for the bucket of minutes you buy, whether you use them or not.
Overall, you should remember that there is no such thing as "free toll free conferencing." Every vendor in the conference business charges for toll free service. Businesses and organizations enjoy toll free conferencing services because it provides customers, prospects and associates a convenient way to collaborate without the cost of dialing a long distance number. It may be more expensive than regular toll conferencing, but offering conference participants a toll free number provides a level of professionalism and shows everyone that you take your conference meetings seriously and that the discussions are important to you.
Toll free conference bridge services will continue to increase in popularity in the future because of how much time and money they save the participants. What would normally take an afternoon in getting everyone together can be accomplished in just a few minutes by meeting on the phone, rather than in person.

24Conference.com offers several different conference call plans, all designed to fit your budget and conference needs.
So if you are looking for an inexpensive conference call service that offers high-quality, reliability, and affordability, we can help you. Better yet, you can start your account at no cost and be up and running within minutes.
Here are few brief tips to consider before you sign up for your service:
1) If you are going to be doing a lot of conferencing, and you and your guests don't mind dialing a long distance number, then our unlimited flat rate plan can save you a fortune. Check it out at the top of this page. Many of our customers who have switched from other providers to our flat rate service have reported they have been able to cut their costs up to 80%. Very impressive! This is the perfect set-up if you are looking to have predictable costs every month that you can budget for in advance.
2) Getting a toll free number for your guests to call can be both convenient and necessary, particularly if you are hosting an important business or sales call. If providing a toll free number (good in the U.S. and Canada) is something you prefer, then you can have a choice of two inexpensive plans. First, if you are an occasional user and don't plan on conferencing that much, you can save by getting the Pay-as-You-Go plan -- you only pay for what you use when you use it, and there are no monthly minimums or hidden costs. Second, our Supersaver plan, offers you substantial discounts for pre-paying for toll free service. It works exactly like the cell phone plan you are using now -- you pay for a certain number of monthly minutes. If you have a good idea of how many conference minutes you use every month, this is an excellent option that can cut your costs almost in half. See the "Toll Free" conference plan at the top of this page.
3) If you have a high-profile, legal or investor call, you'll save with our Operator service. Just have our professionally trained operators call everyone on your list and place them into your conference call. The only thing your guests have to do is answer the phone. This is the top-of-the-line conference service that can be obtained surprisingly inexpensively.
Still have questions? Give us a call at 877-254-2424 and let us lay out your conference call options. This will give you a great opportunity to choose the plan that best meets your requirements and budget.
