How to cancel your GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar free trial

Cancelling your GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar free trial account is easy and quick to do as GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar are to use. Just watch the video below to see how it’s done.

Now that you’ve seen how easy and hassle-free it is to cancel your GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar account, I hope that you will sign up for the free 30 day trial and give these incredible productivity tools a test drive.

If you aren’t yet making screen sharing presentations, you will be, so you might as well jump in now.

GoToMeeting enables you to share your screen to up to 15 other attendees while talking to them either on the phone or through the computer’s speakers and microphone. A chat feature is included as well so that people can ask clarifying questions in the background without interrupting the flow of the meeting.

I have been using GoToMeeting to give technical training and assistance for a couple years,  but more recently I have started use it as a marketing tool.

So I highly recommend that you sign up for a trial today, log in right away and get familiar with the interface. I find it quite intuitive, but as with any powerful and feature rich tool, there is always a learning curve. The quicker you become comfortable with GoToMeeting, the sooner you can spend more time on delivering your content in a meaningful and persuasive way.


Join GoToWebinar from Your Android Phone

UPDATE!: You can now join GOTOWEBINAR via your Android phone. Just click on the registration link from your phone and it will prompt to install the GoToMeeting application and join you to the Webinar if it is in progress. Enjoy!

GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting belong on Android phones. Here is why you should care.

It’s clear that with Android phone sales outstripping the iPhone, GoToWebinar will soon appear on the Android platform.

I thought my G2 was cool two years ago, but when I got my MyTouch 4G in November, my iPhone envy died for good. The MyTouch 4G is fast and keeps multiple programs running. The number of Android apps is around 140,000, which gives me lots of choice in functionality.

So about the only thing that is missing is GoToWebinar. With the arrival of the Gigahertz Snapdragon processors from Qualcomm, screen capture video with audio flows smoothly over the Android screen.

At least the swf replays are fine on the MyTouch 4G, so how about the live sessions?

Depending on whether you give more webinars than you attend, you will want GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting on your Android phone for one of the following reasons.

I’m often on the go when a webinar I want to attend is live, so I would like the ability to follow the live action from wherever I am. I can listen now, but on a good webinar, you need to see the screen to fully appreciate what is going on.

As an Internet marketer, you don’t want to limit your audience to those people who are able to sitting in front of a computer screen for the duration of your presentation.

A lot of people have full time jobs and kids. And those are some of your best prospects. They have enough income and the drive to get into Internet marketing and continue to buy increasingly higher-end products.

But a lot of these people don’t have much time to sit in front of a computer screen. They probably do have a mobile phone. That phone is increasingly likely to be and Android phone.

So if you can get them to click on that GoToWebinar link and enter into your live pitch webinar and  to  interact with you, then you’re most likely to make a sale.

Sign up for a free trial of GoToWebinar today and get yourself in front of the sales wave. GoToWebinar for Android can’t be far away.

How to Get Your Message Across with Web Conferencing

If you can get and keep your participants’ attention, web conferencing can save you a lot of money on travel and related expenses.  But that’s easier said than done.  Many people still prefer to meet in person whenever possible – even if it costs them a lot more to do it.

So how do you keep the online meeting lively and your participants engaged?

Momentum and flow are the most important aspects of holding an online meeting.  To create momentum, you need to start with a short description of the purpose of the meeting and then ask a question that captures the imagination of your participants and makes them want to respond.

“Why is WordPress the best platform for a membership site?”

Asking how many people read the material might be necessary at times, but you’ll be a lot better off if you can stimulate their curiosity and challenge them instead of putting them on the spot. This is true when dealing with peers and even when you’re the boss.

Engage Your Audience

Try to find something unusual about the topic and turn it into a question that your audience would be interested in knowing. Even seemingly boring topics have an interesting side. You just need to do a little research.

If the topic is fairly straightforward and doesn’t lend itself to excitement, you can throw out a topic of interest to the group. The more relevant to the topic the better, but in a jam, even a question like, “What was the name of Brad Pitts first movie?” or “What was the first song by U2 to hit the top ten?” will keep your audience attentive.

Create Suspense

Once you’ve gotten the online meeting started, you need to maintain momentum.  Since you’ve started by asking an interesting question and inviting the audience to answer, you can keep the flow of the meeting going by creating suspense.

Ask a question and tell your audience that you’ll give the answer at the end of the meeting. Sound cheesy? Maybe, but news shows use it all the time – and even if it annoys you, you stay till the end if you’re interested in the topic. The trick is to find something that most people will be curious to know.

Even an otherwise boring training on a new version of software for time recording can be made interesting by finding out 3-5 things about the developer or CEO of the company that wrote it.

A small prize, like a hat with the company logo, could be given out as a reward to the person that answers the most questions correctly. You could also offer a gift to a randomly selected participant. It doesn’t have to be expensive. People love to win something for free. Don’t you?

Of course you need good web conferencing software to serve as a foundation so that you don’t have to worry about your participants having trouble attending your meeting. In my experience, the best web conferencing service available is GoToMeeting by Citrix. You can read my full review of GoToMeeting vs Webex here.
