Bailey Hahn

SEM Strategist - Summit Digital Marketing

✓ Zoom
As a completely remote team, at Summit Digital Marketing, we rely heavily on video conference software to facilitate us in meeting together as a team as well as with our clients. Our preferred video conferencing service is Zoom, which allows us to regularly host video meetings. Some of the features that we love about Zoom are: the capacity to host a large number of people in every call; the ability for every participant to share their computer screen with the other participants; the ability to record every meeting; the chat feature, and so much more! We are very happy with our experience using Zoom and would definitely recommend it to others.

As someone who works in a fully remote company, video conferencing tools are vital to our communications and operations. While we’ve tried several platforms over the years, Zoom is perfect for our needs due to its ease of use and short learning curve. It also offers an intuitive and feature-rich platform to handle video conferencing needs for teams of all sizes. If you have remote teams operating in different time zones (as we do), Zoom offers a simple and shareable recording option to get recorded meetings into the hands of those who may not have been able to attend meetings live.

It’s ideal for team meetings from home, allowing you to have more than 100 people connected at the same time. Additionally, meetings can be recorded to keep a record of what was discussed. I was able to teach my small Marketing class while I was in Orlando while my students were in Miami. I like how Zoom highlights the individuals who are speaking.

Director - Ancient Language Institute

We have found Zoom to be our favorite tool for video conferencing. For some, video conferencing is not really essential to their business. For us it is absolutely essential – getting the right platform was not optional.

We like Zoom for several reasons, but at the top of our list are these:
– Zoom rarely crashes.
– The video quality is consistently high.
– It is very easy to use, even for technophobes.

If you are going to teach a class online, time is of the essence, so you can’t afford to use a platform that is constantly crashing or buggy – or one that people spend 15 minutes of class time trying to figure out how to use. We have students of all ages and walks of life. Some of our students are very tech savvy and others not so much. Zoom, fortunately, is very easy to use, and even technophobes learn to navigate without much difficulty.

My top recommendation would be Zoom. It is able to handle the 50 or so people simultaneously on a video call without hiccups. It’s smooth, fast and is the one with the least issues based on my experience.

✓ Zoom
Zoom is very robust and easily accessible, but only recommend pro as free runs out after 40min. Other than that is a great app.

Markelle Harden

Digital Strategist - Knowmad Digital Marketing

✓ Zoom
At Knowmad, we’ve been using Zoom Meetings for a little over six-months. We switched to Zoom when previous video conferencing tool outgrew our team; Zoom can handle multiple users under one account and offers plenty of growth plans. We selected Zoom over competitors due to the ease-of-use for our clients and collaboration tools. During a meeting, we don’t have to fumble with controls for sharing our screen. As members of a shared account, anyone on the team can begin screen sharing with the click of a button. Other software options require clunky ‘Pass the Presenter’ features that require acceptance clicks from other users. With Zoom, the recording option is awesome for client onboarding; we can record the meeting for team members who are unable to attend and use the recording as a reference for future planning.

Owner - Choosing Therapy

I use multiple tools, both as a teleworker and as an independent consultant.

✓ Zoom
However, Zoom is the one I use the most. That’s because it’s free for one-on-one meetings and allows group calls with up to three people free for 40 minutes. Like GoToMeeting, Zoom allows me to screen share applications. I use it when conducting one-on-one meetings as seeing one another’s faces helps create connection and trust. I also use it when conducting live training sessions, as I can see the participant’s reactions as they view my presentation deck live on the screen.

Brian Lim

Founder & CEO - iHeartRaves

✓ Zoom
In light of COVID-19 and the need to work remotely, we are using Zoom so that people are able to share their fun experiences of working from home daily. We are sharing what our work stations look like, discussing workout routines we are doing, talking about the music we’re listening to, and so on. We’ve started doing virtual happy hours as well and they’ve been a big hit! In addition, there are plans for a Zoom morning workout routine hosted by team members. Zoom is super easy to use, and the cost is very low.

Deborah Sweeney

✓ Zoom
I use and would recommend Zoom for any individual in need of video conferencing software. This is an easy to use (and free!) video conferencing software platform. You can join in meetings and host them, inviting remote work individuals from across the country to be present and get in some much needed face time (or audio time) as we all work remote during COVID-19. Best of all, you can download it on your laptop, tablet, or phone so you have access everywhere you go.
