There aren't many companies that I would write a love letter to or about
Here is just one that I thought I would share with you, because you'd probably love them, too. And even if you aren't in the market for their service, you might as well try it out, because it's free and trust me, you'll find cool ways to use it.
Here's my experience.
As the owner of a "cutting edge" coaching school, I went on a mission last year to find the perfect way to share coach training. Something that would combine the intense experience of live training with the convenience and cost-savings of teleclasses. I knew there had to be something better than teleclasses. I was right, but it took a long time to find it.
I explored every software out there from WebEx, to GoToMeeting, to InstantTeleseminar and a whole bunch you've never even heard of. You know what I found out? They are all expensive, clunky, sometimes hard to use and they almost always require participants to wait while the system downloads something to their computers, before they can even join the class.
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty leery about downloading anything that I don't already understand and I hate to wait.
My clients and students are the same way. I bet you are too. And I bet your friends, family, clients, customers and/or students are, too.
Somebody finally answered my prayers (Thank you, Seth Godin, for pointing the way). Less than a year ago, I discovered a brand new company that had set their sights on turning the business of webinars upside down.
You're not interested in doing webinars? Well, do you...
- Wish you could visit with family and friends, like they were in the room with you (smiling faces and all)?
- Do you wish you could watch your favorite videos with your faraway friends and chat and laugh like you were together?
- Do you ever have long-distance phone meetings where you're all trying to follow they same notes, contracts, reports, etc.?
- Do you ever wish you could stop driving/flying/training and spending time, money, fuel and what's left of the environment, just so you could do your work with others?
In other words, if you could use this service for nothing, then why on Earth wouldn't you? The only reason I can think of is that you just don't know about it, yet.
So I'm telling you: Get Dimdim.
It's as close to perfect as it comes. You can meet freely. And easily. And do lots of cool stuff with the people you love, no matter where they are.
Yes, you can do more if you pay something (An annual subscription is a fraction of what WebEx costs for one month), but for most people, the free account is all you'll ever need and it's not a free trial. It's free forever!
And yes, Dimdim has offered to expand my service if I tell my friends about it, so that's my selfish reason for writing, but I already brag about Dimdim to everyone I know. So.
