I don’t know about you, but I love my Google TV. I love it for a lot of reasons (YouTube on the big screen!) – but now I love it because I can use join.me on it, too.

As of today, you can now download our join.me viewer for your Google TV. Head on over to the Google Play store on your Google TV and get the join.me app. Watch presentations, demos, slideshows – anything you want – just like you would from your Android mobile device. Except with a bigger screen. And probably a comfier seat.

join.me – a free sales tool just for you

No matter what you’re selling, having a great free sales tool like join.me in your back pocket will not only impress, but possibly close the deal. Here are three ways join.me can improve the sales experience and make the best use of your time.

1) Prepare properly. First impressions matter, and a well-delivered message is your best ammunition. Second best? How you deliver. join.me requires no registration for your viewers, so they are only a click away from what you have to say. Time is money (if you didn’t already know).

2) Get to the point. You’ve been there – waiting, waiting and waiting to download complicated technology just to get on the same page with someone else. With no viewer downloads, you can get to the point easily with join.me. Need some show and tell? Have them launch their own  join.me session and show you their thoughts.

3) TTYL (Talk to you later). When the conversation ends, join.me is perfect for ad-hoc meetings and follow-up calls.  Need to quickly check in? join.me. Want to go over the contract together? join.me.  With an impressive ability to swoop in and save the day, join.me makes the sales cycle easier and more authentic. Sold!

Web collaboration: Using markup.io free drawing tool with join.me

About a week ago I was using join.me with a colleague checking out a website. Apparently we had different views of where “to the left” was (hey, it happens), so I pulled up markup.io to show them exactly where I meant. And then it hit me: I should share this tool with our join.me users. I already told you about Jing when I posted about favorite free tools, but markup.io is perfect for reviewing and collaborating on web pages. It’s fast, it’s simple and sits in your browser toolbar so you can easily pull it up. You can also “publish” your markups when you’re done and send them out. Check it out – it’s a perfect pair with join.me. Here’s an example:

         

join.me wins Best Professional Software award from Macworld UK

join.me was named the Best Professional Software this year at the Macworld UK awards. What does that mean? It means our free screen-sharing software was recognized for being awesome, and for making a significant contribution to the Mac community (iOS too!). This was such a beautiful thing for join.me we had to share with you – and, of course, show you what we actually won. In case you’re wondering, we’re currently in the process of devising a schedule of who’s desk it sits on and for how long.

Let’s discuss: Ice breakers for virtual meetings

Hey, we’ve all been there.  Whether it’s the start of a new job or the beginning of a new project, there comes a time for the icebreaker. You know, the “go around the room and tell everyone…” It could be your favorite book, the best place you’ve ever traveled to or, my personal favorite, “something unique about yourself.” (That one always drives me crazy – I never know what to say).

Now that more and more people are working remotely, sometimes these icebreakers need to happen in our virtual meetings, too. Because we use join.me free screen sharing to collaborate with the people we work with, we use icebreakers, too. So, let’s discuss: If you are starting a new project with a group of people you don’t know very well, what are your favorite virtual icebreakers to use? Which ones do you find work the best? Which ones don’t work?
