Free Webinars and YouTube Videos Using Google Hangouts!

Google is known for developing new programs and then getting rid of them when they don’t work out. Anyone remember Google Wave, Google Buzz and now Google Reader? Even though many have predicted much the same fate for Google , an addition to this might just save the day. Google Hangouts is Google’s latest addition, and one that truly has a lot of usefulness. (Especially for marketers!)

Google Hangouts – The Short Version

A drop dead easy tool for teleconferencing that could replace or augment your current webinar or online seminar solutions. Connected to your Google account, a hangout is a breeze to launch, and has a number of attractive features for marketers. You and up to ten other participants, together with any number of other viewers can watch your hangout live. It can be broadcast from your Google page, YouTube channel, or a page on your site. Google records the Hangout, and then a few minutes after you’re done, delivers a YouTube URL to you, which you can then use in numerous ways.
