Everyone loves getting something for free, and we love that USA Today reporter, Rhonda Abrams, chose FreeConferenceCall.com as the best free application for online conference calls and meetings in her recent story “8 Free Killer Small Business Apps.” In the recent story, Abrams highlights one top app for various business solutions - from building a solid business infrastructure to staying on top of customers’ birthdays. The article notes, “A few years ago, ‘free-mium’ was all the rage as the latest business model. During the economic downturn, online companies wanted to capture your business by enticing you with a certain level of service for free, in the hopes you’d upgrade to the ‘premium’ version.
