Minute Meetings

Face time in no time

At work - and at play - emails and text messages aren’t always enough to get your point across. And sometimes, a phone call doesn’t quite cut it either. But what are you supposed to do when your team is scattered all across the U.S. and you need to meet with them? Skype?

If you can bypass your company’s firewall - and everyone actually remembers their password - then sure, Skype away. But if you want to make sure that no one misses your next meeting – and this includes inpromtpu brainstorms about whether the red dress or silk shorts are best for the hot date you have in 20 - you should really consider using Meetings.io.

It’s the best place to host meetings without ever logging in. The free service lets you schedule video conferences anytime and anywhere you have a wifi connection. Don’t worry about creating another screen name or alias, because all you need to do is sign up with Facebook or your email address and you’ll be ready to meet. Go to the site, click “Get A Meeting Room” and send the provided URL to anyone around the world. Re-use your meeting room whenever you want for as long as you need.

Just because video conferencing gets a bad rap doesn’t mean you have to.
