On Hold Messaging
What is On Hold Messaging?
Rather than just play ‘elevator music’ why not have custom designed on hold messaging and music keep your customers informed and minimise their frustration?
What is best practice for on hold messaging?
If you are going to subject your customers to periods of time waiting in a queue, there are a number of options:
- Just play calming music
- Use the time to promote your online channels (e.g. did you know you can now order products directly from our website?)
- Educate customers on your products or services with interesting facts
- Some companies are also using on hold messaging to provide completely unrelated facts like the latest news, interesting science facts etc.
- Let people know their progress in the queue or offer a callback option
