Message On-Hold Tips from SayItOnHold – Effective Script Writing Tip #2

In our first tip we discussed the importance of RULE #1: writing your message on-hold script through eyes and ears of your callers.  Continuing in this mindset, be sure to include practical information such as your address, hours of operation, company history & vision, customer care messages, etc. to balance out your sales-related content; this helps to avoid leaving callers feeling inundated, offended or downright sleepy while on-hold.  To keep them interested what you’re saying apply RULE #1 and think about all the information your customers would find helpful and entertaining.

Depending on the type of products or services you offer, callers may also enjoy hearing practical tips, trivia, industry news, or perhaps even humor.  All of these things may help them grow in their particular field.  And that can mean bigger and more long-term sales for you!  Stay tuned for our next “EFFECTIVE MESSAGE ON-HOLD SCRIPT WRITING” tip!!

SayItOnHold Tip #2A.01 Choosing the Smartest Location For Your Message On Hold Player

Whether your company operates from a bedroom overlooking a neighborhood park, from the top floor of an upscale office park or anywhere in between, the placement of your message on-hold player can help determine how clearly and consistently it delivers your content to callers on hold.  Here is the first in a series of practical things to consider when choosing a location for your player.

Accessibility & Convenience: For checking the sound quality of your messages and setting the volume and/or tone, it’s really handy to have the player near a land line or cordless phone.  And of course, it’s important to keep the player within reach when loading new messages & music, troubleshooting connection problems, accommodating audio cable length, etc.

However, there are strong arguments for choosing a spot in close proximity to the phone system’s CPU/Cabinet (PBX, Hybrid or Key systems) or near the main telephone (KSU-less phones, such as single-line, two-line or four-line phones).  We’ll find out why in our next tip, when we cover the “safest” environment for your message on hold player.  Keep watching!
