Yes, it’s a bit of a cliche but first impressions do count.
When someone calls your company, what do they hear?
Is it professionally recorded, or did you get someone from accounts to record your message on their phone, in a cupboard?
I know what I prefer when I have to listen to a message… I want a voice that is welcoming, high-quality and appropriate for the company. For example, a bank is likely to have a different tone of voice from a garage to pick two disparate examples.
Listening to someone reading out loud in a boring monotone, recorded in an echoey environment and totally mismatched for the situation gives me a bad first impression of your company.
I can help here.
I’ve recorded hundreds of phone greeting and IVR prompts for companies all over the world and I’m more than happy to do yours. I can change the tone of the greeting to match the environment it’s to be used in, and it’ll be recorded and edited on professional standard audio hardware – and I can get it back to you in minutes normally.
But, it’s not an expensive option.
My rates start at just £10 for a prompt of under 20 seconds, with no minimum phone greeting amount. One prompt? No problem.
To give your company the edge, it’s a small price to pay, no?
