How to host FREE Webinars with Skype and Facebook or YouTube Live

Posted by Paul Richards on Sep 26, 2016 12:16:56 PM

Howdy friends and followers! I’ve been meaning to sit down and write a “how to” article about setting up free webinars for a while now. We stopped using services GoToMeeting, WebEX and Zoom Webinar for a long time now, because they charge way too much money and reduce our overall ability to reach new audiences. In this blog post, I will review our tried and true method for hosting free webinars on the YouTube Live or Facebook Live platforms with the video conference software of your choice.

Our favorite Skype for Business tips and tricks from Microsoft & others

Posted by Paul Richards on Sep 20, 2015 12:01:00 PM

Hello Skype4B users!

Microsoft & Skype for Business have posted several useful shortcuts and tips to make everyday users lives easier. We compiled a list of these tips and added our own that we think you will find useful. Skype for Business is already a simple, easy to use, video conferencing software. The familiar Skype "look and feel" integrated with the Office 365 and/or Lync unified communications platform is one of industries best. 

Enjoy :)

1. Auto Accept

When you see an incoming invitation this is the easiest way to confirm you are able to attend. Simply press windows key and the "A" key at the same time and you will accept the calendar invitation. 

2. Meet Now

Meet Now is the easiest way to launch an "ad-hoc" Skype for Business Meeting. Simply pressing "Alt" + "M" at the same time will launch a video call where you instantly start inviting contacts from your organization. This will pull up the Skype for Business client and a video meeting will be automatically set up and ready to start.
