There are some fundamental factors that can help your operator-assisted
PremiereCall be more successful. Keep these basics in mind
as you prepare for your conference or event.
Encourage Participants to RSVP.
Use ReplyLine to find out the names of the participants planning
to attend your event. Knowing who plans to attend helps you
better organize your presentation.
Use Notifications and Reminders.
Broadcast Messaging helps boost attendance
with telephone reminders, e-mails and faxes.
Begin on Time.
Starting on time sends a message to the
entire group that tardiness is unacceptable and that your
meeting time will not be wasted waiting for late participants.
Use an Agenda.
An agenda will help keep your meeting on
schedule. Be sure to identify the objectives for the meeting
then refer to them throughout your presentation.
Identify Who is Speaking.
Participants should identify themselves
by stating their name and company name. For example, “This
is John Doe from ABC Corporation, and I have a question for
the moderator.” The meeting cannot begin without the
moderator, so it is important for moderators to identify themselves
when they join the conference.
Use your Mute Button. (Moderator only)
To reduce background noise, use the mute
button on your telephone or speakerphone. Loud voices, noisy
office equipment and ringing telephones can distract other
Do Not Place Your Line on Hold.
Putting your conference line on hold often
sends on-hold music and recordings into the conference for
all participants to hear. If you must step away from the conference,
simply hang up and dial in again when you’re able to
End on Time.
It is just as important to end on time
as it is to start on time. Your participants will know they
can count on you to conduct an efficient meeting.
Offer a Conference Replay.

who missed your call to hear your valuable information by
