Godin calls out Calliflower.

I’m pretty stoked.  I’ve been sitting here for the last hour watching our web site numbers climb because of a link from none other than Seth Godin this afternoon.  Yes, Mr. Purple Cow

And I’ve also been racking my brains trying to think of a way to take advantage of this sudden attention, but more on that in a minute. 

Seth is out to reinvent the conference call.  Seth thinks, like his friend Sasha, that conference calls are a bad experience.  He says “I hate them.”  He likes Sasha’s suggestions to make them better, but adds his own idea.  Conference calls should have an accompanying chat room.  He even calls out Calliflower as an example.

And why does he think that?

When you put text chat in parallel with a voice conference call, magical things happen.

The first is that everyone participates. If you don’t, it’s noticeable and you won’t be invited back.

Second, the voice part of the call acts as a narrative for the chat part, allowing people to highlight or respond to what’s being said.

Most of all, it creates organized, trackable chaos, which was the reason for the meeting in the first place.

That has been our experience as well. As anyone who has used Calliflower will tell you, the combination of text chat and voice changes the conversation entirely

Now, back to taking advantage of the attention — here’s what we’ve come up with so that everyone can experience what Seth and I are talking about.  If you haven’t already signed up for Calliflower, then sign up using promotional code OFFER66.  That will get you a 14 day trial — unrestricted access to everything Calliflower has to offer – without having to enter a credit card.

No strings attached, no commitments.  Just try it.  We think you’ll love it.  Just do it before April 15, because that’s when the offer expires.

At the end of those 14 days you can decide to keep Calliflower Premium by choosing one of our 3 subscription plans, or you can do nothing and your account will become a Calliflower free conferencing account.

And thanks for the mention, Seth.
