Free Web Conferencing With Dimdim

Laurie McCabe’s Blog: Free Web Conferencing With Dimdim

Dimdim uses a freemium model, offering web conferences for up to 20 participants free and charging very little for unlimited conferences and participants.

“With the recession stubbornly lingering, many small and medium businesses (SMBs) are still pinching pennies and looking to trim expenses. Dimdim, which provides free Web conferencing for up to 20 users, and charges just $25 per month for Dimdim Pro (which supports unlimited meetings for up to 50 users) gives SMBs a way to eliminate or cut Web conferencing costs painlessly.

Dimdim’s radical contention is that Web conferencing should be free for small meetings, and less costly for larger ones with more bells and whistles is certainly grabbing the attention of Web conferencing users–as evidenced by Dimdim’s assertion that 5 million people in 195 countries are now using Dimdim for about 3 million minutes every day. It also must be rattling the likes of Webex, Citrix GoToMeeting and other web conferencing vendors, whose services look pretty pricey when stacked up against Dimdim. How does Dimdim do it, and can the vendor make this model work?”
