How Coaches Strategize Using Free Internet Calling

Between balancing the goals of the team, and focusing on the needs of individual players, coaching can be a difficult job—it can be made even more difficult when things happen and a team can’t be all together when it needs to be. No matter the circumstances, any good coach should always be in touch with their athletes to effectively strategize on and off of the field.

Establishing open, fluid communication between coaches, mentors, and teammates ensures that everybody is kept in the loop about injuries, strategies, and any other team issues. That’s why having a reliable and free internet calling service can make all the difference for making those moments of separation more manageable.

How Coaches Use Free Video Calling to Mentor Athletes

When it comes to mentoring, coaches and athletes should always be in close contact. For those moments when coaches and players are separated, FreeConference.com offers a handful of useful free video calling services for support, strategy, and seamlessly fluid communication.

Athletes rely on coaches to offer valuable advice about technique, conduct play strategies, and offer emotional and spiritual support (both on and off the field). Behind any great team is a great coach, and staying on the same page ties the whole team together.

Being able to see each other adds a more “human” dimension to communicating rather than the cold, impersonal feeling of speaking over the phone or via email. The subtleties of conversation get lost when you can’t put a face to the person you’re speaking to—for coaches and mentors, especially, these subtleties are crucial to getting messages across and for getting the most out of a player.

How Video Conferencing Can Benefit Scientific Research

No matter the discipline, scientific research is an inherently collaborative process. From drafting a hypothesis, to collecting data, to revising the final version of a publication, scientific research demands the work of a great number of people working towards a final, common goal—how can one prove a hypothesis through quantifiable, logical means? What steps does a team need to take to ensure that a project is seen through to the end?

“Crowdsourcing,” one of the Internet’s most omniscient buzzwords, offers a huge opportunity for researchers around the world to collaborate. Initiatives like The Polymath Project demonstrate the potential for a number of unrelated people to share data, ideas, and concepts.

While emailing and instant messaging is indeed effective, sometimes you need to speak in real-time to produce the most accurate and relevant research exchanges. That is why free video conference services are essential for keeping an open venue for communication and ideas.

Life Coach? Save Your Clients’ Money With Free Web Meetings

While one of the main goals of a life coach is to help a client with some aspect of their life—such as relationship issues, career goals, or overall well-being—it is also important for coaches to be reasonable, transparent, and empathetic in how they charge clients for their time.

Web meetings and free video calling services, like FreeConference.com, are an invaluable way to cut down on costs towards your client, allowing them to spend more time with you and get the most out of your services. Here are some of the features that FreeConference.com offers to help life coaches better plan their rapport with their clients, and to help clients get the most out of their coach’s guidance and mentorship.

Protecting organizational integrity with conference calls

In May 2015, 10 Swiss plainclothes law enforcement officers burst into the luxurious Baur au Lac Hotel in Zurich and slapped handcuffs on a number of high ranking FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) Board members as part of indictments of 14 officials who, in the words of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, have:

“Abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks.”

They assumed the next World Cup would be allocated to the highest bidder, not the most worthy.

The high-flying luxury lifestyles of FIFA officials are coming to an end. Conference calls could have helped FIFA find the road to integrity as an organization, but they chose a different path. Some of them will do jail time for that choice.

How Freelance Writers Cut Costs with Free Online Meetings

The Internet has completely changed the landscape for freelance writers, opening up new markets, and allowing us to live where we want, but still find the right employers, wherever they might be.

The Cloud has changed the economics of writing, too.

Freelance writers use free online meetings to cut overhead costs, so we can charge more for our writing time.

Low overhead wins

For self-employed writers, the Cloud-based free conference call technology, we set up our online meetings with is perfect because it literally carries no overhead.

There is no software to purchase. No monthly fees or charges, for an incredible array of services. No ads wasting our time. Signing up takes just a few minutes, and it syncs automatically with Google Calendar.

All that communication power just sits in the Cloud—and we can use it for free.

There are no apps required, although we can use the free Mobile Conference Call App to set up and make free group video calls on our cell phones from anywhere in the world. It seems like free web meetings were created for just for freelancers, but companies like them too.

They win two ways; both by saving money on regular staff by using freelance writers, and by keeping their corporate communication overhead to a minimum. For example, instead of paying for employees’ phone plans, they can offer far-flung freelancers an inexpensive Toll Free Number and keep their costs “pay as you go.”

5 Tips for Writer’s Groups to use Free Video Calling

Writers are famous for being a solitary, grouchy bunch, who warm their tired fingers by feeding critical reviews of their work into rusty wood stoves, in mossy-roofed cabins perched on lonely mountain slopes.

But actually, we need feedback, and to see a fresh face now and again. Say, once a month or so. That’s what writer’s groups are for.

As we have traded the Underwood for the MacBook, we have also started to include the Internet as a location to hold meetings for our writer’s groups. Sometimes the core of a group meets in person while others attend virtually, but sometimes the whole meeting is online.

This freedom to meet “wherever, whenever,” is enabled by a new conference call technology called free group video calling, which is allowing writer’s groups to collaborate more efficiently over distance and share our work. Here are five tips for using it.
