Okay, I spoke about recording phone calls in an earlier post. Many people have said they were having a hard time finding the device needed.
So you can pick this up at www.RadioShack.com or phone a local store near you.
The part number is: #43-1237 (Mini Recorder)
The great part about this device is that it only costs about $15 bucks and it has a toggle switch for Recording / Play Back. This alone has some pretty nifty uses.
Let’s say I have teleconference training that I’m holding on Monday, now I want to do the exact same call every Monday for new leads / audiences but I want to give them the convenience of being able to just pick up the phone (meaning I’m not just using Audio Generator to post it online).
Well what I can do is Record Monday nights call on any device (MP3 / Tape / CD). Then next week I just switch the toggle to Play Back, jump on the call and have everyone say where they’re calling from with a little live interaction, then press PLAY on my mp3 player which is hooked up and VIOLA… I can now go have dinner while my recording is being played for the audience.
Because I know how long the recording lasts, I like to set a timer for 5 minutes before it’s over and then come back from what ever I was doing (usually just multi-tasking with other projects) and open up the call at the end for a live Q/A session.
So that’s yet another way to use technology and save you massive amounts of time.
Hope this has been helpful.
