How Does it work? This is a telephone set up. It is not on the Internet. It is made for those that have telephones.
A presenter presents on the regular phone. Listeners can dial a phone number and receive the message or presentation on regular phone lines. When a person wants to dial in and receive the presentation, all one has to do it dial the given number, put in the activity code, and you are on the call. It works just like a large conference call.
So What makes it work? A presenter can use a cell phone to do the presentation. We call this "Virtual Networking". You all can call it whatever you want. There will be a host dial-in number and a host password number. There will be an audience dial-in number and a dial-in password number. (ei.2345#) The Host is in control of the call. The host can open the call up for audience participation or the host can mute the audience and deliver the presentation.
It can be used for a proprietary conference calls. It would be great for a board meeting for very little cost. this is normally limited to a group that can dial inexpensive USA numbers.
Now I'm going to give specifics that I can use:
We are using www.callsparks.com 1-800-799-8023
You just dial a regular long distance phone number. I use 1010636 before I dial the number in order to insure the 4.9 cents per minute. That is about 3.00 per hour to receive a one hour presentation. The person initiating the call costs a little more but no too much. For a very little bit more you can have a welcome message added that says something line: "Welcome to the Special message presented by Jarvis Windom. To connect to the live presentation dial 1234#." This will immediately connect you to a live seminar. The big benefit is at the end the host can open it up for comments, and/or questions. then the host can shut the entire seminar down.
This is not cyber-casting. Cyber-Casting means using the Internet. This is simple Telephone Conferencing.
