Family Conference Calls? Great for the Holidays & Family Reunions

Get the family together by starting a family conference call with a prepaid conference calling card.

Now more than ever we’re dispersed across the globe, busy with our careers, pursuing educational endeavors, and raising children. As much as we would like to stay in communication with our families, it is often difficult to get together at a time and place that everyone can accommodate. We do our best to call family members one at a time to touch-base, but it never quite feels the same as sharing with the entire family.

Luckily, over the past few years telecommunication products and services have advanced to the point where we can communicate with one another across vast distances at a very low cost with exceptional clarity. One such alternative, which can help your family get together, is conferencing.

Starting or joining a family conference call is easy and very inexpensive. There is no need to change long distance carriers. There is no complicated User’s Guide to read. And again…it’s incredibly cheap to start or join a family conference call.

How easy? It really is as easy as 1) Buy a conference call PIN, 2) Give family members your Access Code and a toll-free access number or toll access number, and 3) Start talking.

How cheap? Some conference call service providers offer free trials and very cheap per minute rates (compared to the Big Bells). Depending on which conference calls service provider you choose, starting or joining a conference call in the USA can cost under 5¢/min. If a family member is outside of the USA, he/she can still join at a relatively cheap rate per minute using an international toll-free access number or a local toll access number if necessary. Even the most conservative long distance budget can now include room for a family conference call.

Take charge this holiday season and get the family together by hosting a family conference call, or virtual family reunion.
