Message on Hold
It became the rule, NOT the exception.
An on hold message used to be a surprise, but now it’s the norm, the professional standard. On hold messaging has become such a part of the overall business interaction that callers who are greeted with silence instead of an on-hold message question if they were disconnected and don’t wait to find out.
Innovation led to results-driven on hold marketing.
Some clever marketers decided that music on hold was fine…but why not combine the two? While callers are on hold, entertain, educate, and market them while on hold. On hold messaging became a practical, recognized, and expected marketing technique, and a whole new facet of an already fast expanding industry are suddenly opened.
Businesses found the value of cross selling products by utilizing on hold messages as a marketing tool. They discovered a magical electronic employee that always remembered to mention the hot product, remind callers about new service options, and create a professional, informative image.

What The Other Guys Won’t Tell You.
The kind of phones and phone service you use makes a difference! Why? Hosted VoIP services like Weave, Nextiva, Comcast, and Ooma play the on hold production from the beginning each time a call is put on hold. Telephone systems like NEC, Panasonic, and Vodavi play messages in a loop so each time a call is placed on hold the caller hears something different.
This distinction makes a difference concerning the best way to present the information to the caller and how to mix with the music. INPHO knows the optimal way to craft your on hold program to achieve maximum effect depending on which type of system you have.
