At YoPo Music we now have a new section called Voiceovers and On Hold Messages. As well as providing voiceovers for corporate productions we are now offering custom made and off the shelf on hold messages and pre-recorded on hold messaging for business.
Here’s an example of some on hold messages for business recorded with a professional voiceover and music.
When customers call your business and are placed on hold, professionally produced ‘on hold messaging’ can politely remind them that they are on hold but that you haven’t forgotten about them, subtly inform about new products and services, and hopefully keep them on the line with professional sounding voiceover and appropriate music or soundscapes.
“Music On Hold” versus “Soundscapes On Hold” versus “Silence”
Silence is golden – well for some it is. Others would prefer to listen to something whilst being placed on the dreaded “On Hold”. The music we use at YoPo is specifically designed to be non-obstrusive but without being bland. The problem with using your own favourite style of music is that it’s probably not going to be your client’s favourite. If you think “jazz” might be great – all well and good except for the caller who happens to think that “there are two types of jazz…and they’re both dreadful!” So care has to be taken choosing music for on hold messages.
At YoPo we also produce on hold messages using soundscapes instead of music. The sound of birdsong, ocean waves and other natural sounds can be more calming than music, and very effective for on hold messages. It all depends on what you think your customers will appreciate and what reflects your business best.
Here’s an on hold messaging production using birdsong as a background.
