If you need to initiate a global conference call in Chile, for example, you may have participants in other countries who are unwilling to dial an international access number to join your conference.
The workaround — which is also an excellent solution for hosting global conference calls around the world — is to use a service provider that provides toll free or local access numbers for the countries in which your participants are located.
How to Initiate Global Conference Calls in Chile
Once you’ve signed up for your Chile conference calling plan, you’re ready to host your first conference call. You can chair the conference on the fly.
Once you’ve scheduled the call with your attendees, you’ll need to let your participants know how to join it. Assuming you’re located in Chile, you and your participants in Chile will dial either a toll free Chile access number or a local access number for Santiago (this depends on the choices you’ve made in setting up your conference call).
For participants located in other countries, decide whether to provide toll free or local access numbers. In most cases, you’ll pay less per minute for local numbers. In others, the difference between toll free and local access numbers is minimal. Make sure to look up the rates for the countries involved to determine which option makes the most sense for you and your participants.
Invite your participants. Send an email to all participants notifying them of the conference call’s details including time (preferably in local time or Greenwich Mean Time to minimize confusion about the call’s time and date) and access numbers for their countries.
