We all know first impressions count. So why are many businesses still leaving their phone system's first impression - with every single potential customer that calls their business up - to chance?
Have you ever called a business and noticed that so many are still overlooking the first port of call with any potential customer by not using a professional voice over for their voice prompts? Us too, and it really hurts us when we find yet another example of this. Not to mention having the ability to leave the company a message out of hours when they're closed.
Lots of organisations still think that using the guy or lady from reception to be the voice of their brand …
So, why on earth should you use a professional voiceover?
Recording call menu options and/or on hold messages can be a lengthy, complex process. Leaving it to the professionals like us is often a better option; as we know exactly how to make your message sound great on your phone system - no matter what its age, make or model. This includes finessing the messages to include corporate tone, delivery and so much more.
Your receptionist probably does have a great speaking voice, it is probably one of their talents that made you hire them, being the first person most callers speak too. But if you put them in front of a microphone with a full script, they are usually lifeless, monotone and do not have the knowledge to pull out the character to suit your business and target market. So this often cheap, lengthy process, ends up not giving you the desired outcome your business deserves.

All of our voice overs flow and speak in the right pace – it’s a really great talent because it can reduce your customer’s potential frustration at having to wait, by reading the messages in a clear concise manner.
