What is a message on hold and how will it benefit my business?

‘On Hold Message’, ‘Message on Hold’ or ‘Marketing Messages’.  However you might refer to them, they’re an essential professional representation of your company brand and image. On hold messages are an effective way to communicate general information about your business as well as promoting any time sensitive products or events within your business while your caller/client is on hold.

Content for your message on hold can include ‘on point’ topics such as latest news within your organisation, any special offers you are promoting and any other information such as updated trading hours and holiday specials. Are you moving premises? Are you changing your trading hours over the festive season? Let your customers be the first to know these important changes within your business.

 

A message on hold might run in conjunction with your marketing campaigns like TV Commercials, radio ads, social media posts and more. You can simply leave the content up to us or you may have some legally approved content in mind that we can work with.

A message on hold usually contains around 8 to 10 messages with a rough estimated time of 30 seconds per message.  One question we do like to ask is how long are your callers usually on hold? Once we determine your call flows and other caller dynamics and trends, we’ll have a better idea of content and the right length of the message, which will work for your business.

Your message on hold is voiced by a professional voiceover(s). Once the voiceover has read the message on hold script in the studio, we will then fully mix and produce with one of our licenced music tracks especially made to complement your on hold message. If you need any special effects (SFX) inserted into your production, we’ll gladly be able to help. Check out some of our industry samples here.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Message on Hold and how will it benefit my business?

A Message On-Hold makes up around 8-10 audio marketing messages created for your business and voiced by a professional voiceover(s).  These messages are then fully produced and mixed with one of our licenced music tracks of your choice. This is an effective way to communicate general information about your business, or to promote time sensitive products or events within your business while your caller/client is on hold. Content can include many ‘on point’ topics such as latest news within your organisation, any special offers you are promoting and timely information such as updated trading hours and holiday specials. A message on hold can also run simultaneously with TV Commercials, radio ads, social media posts and more. You can simply leave the content up to us or you may have some approved content in mind that we can work with. Check out our message on hold voice samples here.
