I watched the sky turning rusty red from my window. The wind gusts were upwards of 50 MPH with zero visibility. Next day, when I tried opening my front door,I couldn't because --there was a 6 foot snow drift in front of my door! Half of my little abode was buried under the snow.

Yes,I do mean conference call etiquette. Like table manners, there are some manners required while conducting a conference call.

I've got to be honest; it all started when I came across this article "Improve Your Voice, Improve Your Sales". I frequently get some interesting comments when someone hears me over the phone without first meeting me.

As a follower of Ken Molay's Webinar Success blog, I was drawn to his recent posting, What Happens When Your Webinar Service Dies?. It concerns a recent web provider's outage, it's impacts on a customer and valid concerns Ken raises when outages such as this occur.
I was on LinkedIn the other day, perusing the "Answers" section when I stumbled upon a question posed from a longstanding marketer.
