Mumbai: Hotmail co-founder Sabeer Bhatia has launched SabseBolo.com, a free conferencing facility, a few months after launching Live Documents, an online office application.
“Through SabseBolo.com, we are targeting small and medium enterprises and entrepreneurs. But anyone can use this facility. It is absolutely free,” SabseBolo.com Co-Founder Sabeer Bhatia told reporters.
People would have to go to the website and register themselves. Once they have done the registration they would be given a conference ID and PIN, which could be circulated to begin conferencing, Bhatia said.
Revenue for this business would be generated through advertisements.
“Before the conference begins there would be a five-second advertisement. We have not decided the tariff as yet. It could be as low as Re1 per 5 second of advertisement,” he said.
“If there are 40,000 people using the conference facility a day, then I can make Rs40,000 in a day too,” he said.
The idea to set up a free conferencing facility came to Bhatia when he had to make a conference call between his offices in Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi.
“The existing facilities are too costly. With Sabsebolo.com, conferencing is free now,” he added.
