You’ll want to check out the latest ebook from Evernote Productivity Ambassador, Joshua Zerkel.

Today we’re really excited to announce two major milestones for ÜberConference. First, we’re launching our ÜberConference Pro product. For just $10 per month, users get a local dial-in number from nearly any area code in the US, up to 40 participants on an ÜberConference call, 500 minutes of outbound dialing to originate conference calls (no need to even dial in!), recurring conferences, unlimited call recording and more. We’re really excited about the Pro product and think you’ll love it. Its the best deal on the planet.

Of course, we’ll always offer a compelling free product as well, which brings me to our second major milestone, which is the public availability of ÜberConference Free. Yes, no longer will new users need to get on a waitlist or be invited to join ÜberConference. Every ÜberConference Free account has unlimited conference calls for up to five participants, and you can easily increase that to 17 max participants by doing various things to make ÜberConference work better for you (like importing your contacts, linking your social accounts, completing your profile, etc.). We launched ÜberConference Free in closed beta back in May and have had tens of thousands of beta users testing the service and providing feedback and product suggestions. We have made a lot of improvements during the beta and we feel the ÜberConference is ready for prime time. We promise to continue to diligently improve the service on an ongoing basis.

So that’s it…thanks for being part of the ÜberConference story and go sign up for an account if you haven’t already. We’d love to hear what you think about it.

How to Get Your Whole Company Hooked on Social with Michael Brito

SVP of Social Business for Edelman, Michael Brito, is a social media rockstar with over 30k Twitter followers and a book currently out on Amazon Smart Business Social Business. He’s one of the main forces behind social for companies like Hewlett Packard and Intel, and one of the foremost experts in the country when it comes to B2B social media marketing. Host of our Ubercast, Sarah Buhr, sat down to chat with Michael at the Edelman offices in downtown San Francisco about some key ways to get everyone you work with on board with the social program.

Tips:

  • Get engineers and others in the company involved. Ask them to write a blog post and actively talk about their expertise.
  • Create a social media employee guide to help those in the company understand messaging and social media etiquette
  • Encourage employees to actively tweet out and post company messaging on their own social channels.

It was awesome to sponsor the Founder Showcase, one of the top Silicon Valley startup events. That’s where UberConference was last night, on Microsoft’s Silicon Valley Campus down in Mountain View, CA.

The Founder Showcase began in 2009 as a small quarterly event but now has grown into a 500+ person extravaganza regularly attended by entrepreneurs, investors, and journalists. Startup founders can apply online to pitch at the next showcase in June.

This quarter’s Showcase taught startup attendees “The Future of Funding,” featuring smart, punchy talks by Chris Dixon of Andreessen Horowitz (one of the companies that funded UberConference), andKeith Rabois of Khosla Ventures, on where venture funding has been, since the late ‘80s, and where it’s going.

As a growing startup ourselves, we like to support events like the Founder Showcase. We understand the difficulty it takes to manage and grow a business. That’s why we created UberConference: to help make it easier for communicate with your team, customers, and partners to get things done. It’s a great fit for startups who want a communication tool that provides a high quality experience while saving them money.

If you’re a startup that missed the event, you can use the promo code “showcase” (no quotes) to upgrade your account to Uberconference Pro – limit one code per startup.

Sharing becomes a truly conversational experience as UberConference kicks off a new collaborative tool for Google Drive. Now, in your conference browser, users can edit any document while discussing changes over a call. Anyone who has access to the Google Doc can edit or access the document online. Now your team can all be on a call and edit, add, and review notes in real time. No refresh windows, no second browsers. Get ready for a new wave of collaboration.
