Tips For Hosting an Online Company Party
By Lynette Chandler
The holidays are upon us already, can you believe it? This time of
year brings with it lots of company holiday parties. For some of us,
though, the holiday party is about as foreign as chatting by the
water cooler. We might have a team of people that we work with
but have never meet each other socially outside of work.
But it doesn't have to be that way this year. Not for your company.
With widespread high speed Internet access around the world,
you can get together and indulge a little in holiday festivities. While
a regular company party can be plagued with embarrassing
moments and too much alcohol, a virtual party isn't and it's a great
time to just come together to build the relationship with people
who help your business grow. There are many software and
services you can use to hold a virtual company holiday party. Some
are free while others are available at very affordable, small
company friendly rates.
A popular web conferencing system you can use for free is Skype.
You can do voice, text chat with up to 5 other people. It also works
on a variety of computer systems which means you aren't limited
when someone in the team is using a different system. The only
down side is, you can only hold a video chat with one other
person. Other popular and free systems include Yahoo!
If you don't have an aversion to spending a bit to host your online
company party, then a web conferencing service is a great way to
go. The possibilities range from surfing the internet as a group to
sharing photos and videos right from your desktop. There is no
need for uploading or sending files, videos can be played or photos
can be opened right from your computer for the group to see.
You can communicate with larger groups with web conferencing
using voice, video and text. Another nice thing, many services
allow you to record your online event. Depending on the service,
you can purchase these services on a per minute, per hour or per
You really should start researching now if you're planning on
hosting a virtual holiday party this season. You're going to need
time to check out the systems because each one is different. Why
not also consider holding a party for your customers to let them
know you appreciate their business. This will leave a good
impression and they'll be sure to remember you when they need
products later on in the year.
