What do YOUR customers hear when they're on hold?

Your phone is your electronic “front door” that welcomes customers to your business. Once they ‘step’ inside by calling, they want to feel welcome. They need to know someone is going to take care of them, address their concerns and answer their questions.

On-hold advertising does for your phone what an interior designer does for your lobby! Sound Marketing Resources creates a phone experience that keeps your callers comfortable and happy while they wait. They hear a message that’s professionally crafted to inform and entertain and, ultimately, reinforce why your company deserves their business. Professionally written messages, voice narration and music combine to make being on hold a rather pleasurable experience.

Be bold. Be different. Be you.

Your business may offer the same products and services as your competitors, but it still has a unique personality that differentiates you from the others. Sound Marketing Resources peels back the obvious to uncover what appeals most to your callers. Simply put: we learn about you and your business and craft a message that you simply won’t hear anywhere else. Our on-hold messaging system promotes YOUR business.
