Hold Message

Exceptional Hold Message Voice Overs and Audio

Forget Greensleeves! Hold messages are a fantastic opportunity to engage with your callers while they’re waiting on the phone. You can lose or even annoy listeners with silence or background muzak, but they’ll stay on the line up to 25% longer when listening to on hold messaging. Keep callers informed and entertained with clear communication and helpful information. Abes Audio provides professional voice artists and audio production to represent your brand while your phone operators are busy. With the right voice over you can assure them that you’ll be with them soon and use the opportunity to tell them about new or useful products and services that you offer.

Find Your Ideal on Hold Voice Talent

A great on hold voice over is one that sounds sincere, approachable and trustworthy – someone you will actually believe when they tell you they value your time. 34% of callers who hang up will not call back, so it’s easy to see that finding the right voice talent is crucial. Whether you’re seeking a male or female voice, one that’s young or old, or even in a different language, you’ll find it with our diverse talent pool. Because we record our voice overs online we can provide access to a vast range of talent of different nationalities and identify the ones that will be best for your on hold messaging. Our online system also allows more efficient organisation and delivery of your audio, so it’s easy to update and refresh your scripts when you need to.

On Hold Advertising Can Be Highly Effective

On hold messaging isn’t just useful for informing callers about their progress in the queue. It’s a brilliant way to direct listeners to new products, services and offers, which can even lead to direct sales when the operator takes the call. It’s a very cost-effective and logical channel to help build loyalty and awareness.

This form of advertising, however, can take some expert knowledge to get right as aggravating your waiting customers is the last thing you want to do. Our writers and producers know how to bring the script, voice over, and music together in a way that will assist and motivate your listeners rather than irking them.

On hold messaging is an often-overlooked medium for communicating with customers. To make the most of the opportunities of on hold messaging for your business or clients, contact the team at Abes Audio.
