If you're a small business owner who could use some free advice now and then, try tuning in to the's Small Business Learning Center over the next few days and weeks.

It's a new section they're adding on their Web site. There'll be new articles geared towards VoIP, showing you how your small business can get the most out of it and dealing with common issues people have. Did we mention that it's free? These days, free is good.

Heck, most any days free is good. It's at

Example: You want to know how to run more effective business meetings with Web conferencing stuff. What a coincidence: There's an article titled 'Effective Business Meetings With Web Conferencing Solutions' on the site.

It tells you stuff like 'a Voice over IP Web conference takes the same basic principles of a conventional meeting and works to enhance them by offering distinctive and advanced tools and solutions designed to optimize the presentation process. Much like an in person board meeting, Web conferencing supplies the presenter with white boards and slide show applications that participants are able to effortlessly follow along with, in real-time, from the convenience of their own computer screens.'

It tells you there's also advanced file sharing capabilities to 'allow for seamless document transfer, to multiple recipients, lessening the need for paper and ink consumption.'

Entire companies can be connected, so long as each participant is stationed at a computer (or in a special board room setting) that is connected to the Internet and has speakers and a microphone. Video conferencing capabilities can be achieved through the use of a functioning Web camera.

And if you're looking to 'further mature' your Web conferencing, one way to do it is by upgrading your hosted Voice over IP system to support advanced high definition VoIP technology.

Why might you want to do this? HD VoIP 'significantly augments the overall conference experience by improving voice quality,' the article explains, 'making it easier to distinguish between multiple speakers. Through this practice it is possible to lessen the effects of mental fatigue, often experienced by partakers of long meetings, by drastically reducing background noise and making it easier to concentrate on the words the presenter is speaking.'

See? Just basic, common-sense advice. Which we can all use.
