Join Me: The Best Screen Sharing Tool for Small Businesses

We work hard to keep our clients informed of the most effective, easy-to-use, and in many cases free technology solutions available. (After all, when you’re running a medical clinic, law firm, or studio, you don’t have a lot of spare time to focus on techno trends.) That’s why you’ve been seeing — and will continue to see — more Tech Guru blog posts about our favorite apps and web sites that can be a real boost to how you operate your business. 

This week we want to tell you about Join Me. You’ve heard of “screen sharing,” where people at different locations can all view the same screen for meetings and presentations, and perhaps you’ve tried other services. Too often, the process can be clunky and frustrating. Not with Join Me. More than any other service we’ve tried, Join Me has made instant screen sharing for small businesses ridiculously simple. The free service (there’s also a “pro” service that offers even more goodies) includes:

  • up to 10 meeting participants
  • screen sharing
  • internet calling
  • share control
  • chat (with everyone or privately)
  • file sending
Need to brainstorm with offsite employees? Want to walk through a sales presentation with an overseas prospect? Want to fine-tune a contract with a vendor while you’re both literally on the same page? Join Me will be the perfect solution for you!
Starting a Join Me session is a snap. Just visit and then:
  1. Click on “basic” under “Share Your Screen”
  2. A small box with a unique nine-digit code will appear at the top of your screen
  3. Share your screen by clicking on the person icon, which allows you to invite up to nine people
Our Tech Guru tester was able to start a new session and invite a participant in 90 seconds. (Seriously, it took 90 seconds).
Let us know how you put Join Me to work for you!
