President Obama's Secret Weapon Revealed

Most Technologically Advanced Campaign in History Mounted, In Part, Thanks To Local Firm

Long Beach, CA (March 11, 2009) – Experts say that the Obama Presidential campaign was the most technologically advanced in history. The use of text messaging, social networking sites and mass emails by his staff are well documented, however, there is one little known tool in his arsenal that most of the public is not aware of - free conferencing services. When the candidate wanted to communicate directly to his “ground troops” (up to 1,000 at a time), he simply used the services of Free Conferencing Corp., a Long Beach, Calif. company. During the campaign, the Obama team logged 5 million minutes of free conference calls.

The no-cost nature of the service is fueling its success as one of the fastest growing businesses. In addition to the Obama campaign, those using the service include a fast growing number of Fortune 500 companies, international corporations, small and medium sized businesses, nonprofits, churches, community groups and even ordinary citizens who want to communicate with their relatives and friends en masse.

“We were delighted to learn that the Obama campaign relied on our service for many of their communications needs,” said David Erickson, Founder of Free Conferencing Corp., which industry analysts say handles 5 percent of the world's conference call traffic. “The fact that he and his team discovered the merits of our service and used it to the extent that they did says a lot about their tech savvy and desire to save money.”

Free Conferencing Corp offers a number of services, with the most basic allowing the host to make an unlimited number of calls, each with a total of 96 callers and a six-hour limit. A number of other features make the service ideal to nearly everyone. For instance, if you don't want your clients to pay the normal long-distance charges to participate in the call, you may request an 800 number for which you will be charged $.06 a minute. Also, calls can be recorded, played back and streamed to listeners over the Internet at no charge.
