View Full Version : Lawn Care Tele-Conference

03-01-2010, 05:22 AM
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a Lawn Care Business tele-conference. I have this program I use on the farm that we could use. I'd be willing to take meeting mins. I gusee if we do it it should be set up something like this:


Business Name
Username (GopherHaul Forum)

-Discussion 1
Topic: Going into the Spring Season (Peak Season)

Business to-do
Equip to-do
Client/Customer to-do
Other to-do

-Discussion 2
Topic: Current state of the industry

Current benefits
current problems

-Free Discussion
Remaining time is general talking

If we wanted this to work I'm sure we would have to set up a common time. I was thinking 6:00pm EST this Friday. Does this work for everyone before I set up up.

If you are interested.....

Steve, Please PM me so I can talk about making you an administrator for this call (if you would like to be one...)

I really like this idea. We can compare, share and help each other. I am all for it my only question is what will this do to my phone bill?

03-01-2010, 10:21 AM
That is great!

I had tried in the past to do this on some of the podcasts.

Why not experiment with it and see how it goes?

I have set it up.....

Just to make it eaisier I have limited the phone line to a max of 25 users. I don't think we will get that high of a call volume but in the event that we do we will work something out...

Date: Friday, March 05, 2010
Start Time: 6:00 PM Eastern Std Time
Participants: MAX OF 25
Dial-in Number: 1-218-936-4700
Participant Access Code: 6727458

I hope to hear from all of you this Friday. Sorry for the short notice....

If you have to pay for long-distance calling I would reccomend either using a cell-phone, or try this: http://www.phonehog.com/registration_b.asp

Since everyone is all over the map and we all have internet access, why not use Skype as it's free to everyone

I do have unlimited long distance thru North America....however, Skype gets my vote.

I'll try and call in to see how it works out, thanks for setting this up lklandscaping

Skype would be much better....FREE

03-01-2010, 09:37 PM
I think this is good, im in.

03-01-2010, 10:30 PM
There's also BlogTV maybe we can name it GopherHaulTV and even though you don't have a webcam, everybody can participate to the chat and maybe Steve can be our host

I have mentioned this before but nobody is listening to me :rolleyes:

03-01-2010, 10:49 PM
Now you can all hear the voice behind the text. LMAO

Justin helped me find Skype, I just suck at figuring it out how to use it.

We need a webcam conference. Skype have that?

Just imagine someone goes on in the buff & just scratches their arse. "Oh hey guys"

03-03-2010, 12:50 PM
As far as I know yea but I think there is a cost associated with it. I think it is free to use skype to skype though.

How did all this go? Were you able to record it?

03-07-2010, 06:56 AM
Only two people called in. I think I'm going to have to set up an online or some type of free conference. Everyone give me dates and times that work best for you. I was figuring Friday at 7:00pm EST but if we can get a majority of people to agree on a different time We can do that......
