Meet iMeet – Sandbox Welcome’s Our Exciting New Partner via Virtual Meeting!

Meetings, meetings, meetings. They rule our corporate and professional experience. It doesn’t matter if you’re profit or non-profit, professional or corporation, freelancer or consultant, employee or owner, chances are you have sat through a variation of one; budget one, planning one, boring one, rebel-rousing one, development one, strategy one, review one, focus group one, termination one, conference call one…. there is at least one that you’ve sat through.

Now, think of your last conference call one. Ever sat through a really bad one? Phone line down, signal dead, can’t call out, scratchy voice, lost connection, sound keeps fading, call keeps dropping, echo in the background, wrong number, wrong time zone?

What was your gripe?

Whatever it was, there’s a good chance a new disruptive startup called iMeet can solve that.

We recently played nice and shook hands with iMeet with whom we are we are most excited to announce a fantastic new partnership that is sure to streamline with our support of Bay Area start-up innovators.

iMeet is a fantastic social networking tool that was created to provide a global community of event planners, freelancers, suppliers of professional services, businesses and anyone needing to connect virtually with clients. Think online meeting room meets video conferencing with a smattering of instant messaging. FacebookForum+GoogleChat+Skype.



For a flat monthly fee, schedule a meeting, send out your web address to your attendees, have them connect for free and proceed with your meeting: that easy! Individuals without a webcam video are free to connect via their mobile device or phone. The best? No software or downloads!

As the host of the meeting, no roll call is ever needed; attendees log onto virtual ‘meeting rooms’ and when they speak, their cubes glow. This is a fantastic idea that will instantly give your business some serious street cred and sheen of Web 2.0 savviness.

So, if you’ve ever had ‘one’ of those conference calls that went down the toilet due to tired software or outdated connectivity, try iMeet.

As partners with Sandbox Suites, this advantage could make the difference to that next call that happens to be the ‘big’ one. Just for our Sandbox members, iMeet is offering an exclusive 60 day extended free trial offer. All you need to do is go to Sandbox and iMeet’s co-branded landing page URL to sign up –

As one blogger called it, its a whole new video conferencing system bringing together phone, video and personality in a personal online meeting room.” We love the sound of that.
