Breaking down the barriers to entry for small businesses, AnyMeeting is able to offer a solid, full-featured web conferencing and webinar service that is completely free to a market segment that is steadily growing.
"Spending on web conferencing solutions by small businesses is on the rise and is expected to grow 26 percent annually through 2016," said Monik Seth, research analyst for AMI-Partners, an industry leading global research firm, specializing in IT, Telecom and Internet related sectors, with a focus on SMBs. "Solutions that are friendly to the small business community, like AnyMeeting, are wise to focus on within this market."
AnyMeeting is full-featured to address the complete range of small business needs, from one-to-one video conferencing to 200 person webinars, and includes advanced features such as 6-way video conferencing, screen sharing, application sharing, recording, registration and survey forms, and more. Other AnyMeeting features that are uniquely important to small businesses include persistent personalized meeting URLs, social media integration, profile pages and webinar ticketing.
Always looking to innovate and add value, AnyMeeting has also introduced a new feature that will greatly enhance the in-meeting experience. Users can now share any YouTube video in their meeting by simply copying and pasting the URL of any YouTube video.

"By focusing on the needs of our existing small business customers, we're building a service that meets the online meeting needs of the 30 million small businesses in the US, a hugely underserved market in our industry," said Costin Tuculescu, president and CEO of AnyMeeting.
