Why Telephone Marketing?

Retain Your Holders

An informative custom on-hold message will encourage your callers to hold for a longer period of time than they normally might, giving you the extra time needed to retain more of your callers.

Spread Your Word

If you must place a caller on-hold, you can take advantage of that time to introduce that caller to information about your products and/or services.

First Impressions

First-time callers will get a positive first-impression and an immediate sense of value when they hear your professional image as they wait to speak with you or one of your representatives.

Keep them Entertained

If your callers hear silence when they are placed on hold, stepping-up to hold music helps to retain and entertain them. But for a drastic improvement over mere hold music, move up to one of our customized messages. You just won’t believe how good your business or practice sounds when your professionally written and voiced studio production is playing each time you place a caller on hold.

Our friendly and open approach to explaining the details of our service will assure you that you’ve made the right call.

About Us

Message On Hold has been creating and producing rich, beautiful custom on-hold message since 1994.

If you're nearby we would be glad to schedule an in person appointment (telephone appointment, if not) during which we will explain our service and provide you with an audio sample that you can listen to from the comfort of your PC or even your car! Once you hear a full-length sample of a professionally voiced and produced custom on-hold message, you will be inspired to generate ideas for your own custom message, unique to your business.

Your on-hold message is the finishing touch to your business that gives your callers a sense that they've made the right choice in calling you.

When callers are placed on hold and hear silence, they are inclined to hang-up sooner because they are not sure if they have been disconnected. An on-hold message assures them that someone will be along to take care of them. A custom production like the ones we offer, entertains them while also acting as an endorsement for your organization and its products or services.
