Does your On-Hold program look like this?

"When your caller
                                is On-Hold
                                                    your business
                                                                               is On-The-Line."

94% of all advertising budgets are spent to induce phone calls, while only...

 4% is spent to handle the new calls.

88% of all callers surveyed preferred message recordings to radio or silence.

70% of all business callers are put ON HOLD.

60% of all callers left unattended hang up.

BENEFITS of Tele•Hold

Extended Caller hold times
Decreased caller "hang-ups"
Increased Sales and inquiries
Promotes products and services
Provides support for ad campaigns
Answers frequently asked questions
Provides customer service messages
Keeps callers interested and occupied

Playing the radio over the telephone without paying expensive ASCAP/BMI fees is copyright infringement and it's illegal.

Tele•Hold™ is one of the most cost effective advertising techniques available.

Most businesses place 70% of their callers "On-Hold."

"On-Hold" time averages 45 seconds per call and 80% of all callers will hang up before they listen to a whole minute of silence.

Tele•Hold™... The Right Choice

Our years in the audio productions industry, coupled with studio expertise and creative copy writing make Tele•Hold™
the right choice to provide your firm with a customized Message-On-Hold service.

Why Tele•Hold™?

Seven out of ten callers are put on hold for 30 seconds or even longer.  If your business receives 100 phone calls per day,
for 260 business days a year, your customers are on hold an amazing 218 hours a year.

How do YOU feel being left on hold?
What would you rather listen to?

Lets look at the choices.

SILENCE...   Callers wonder if they're still connected or if they've been forgotten about.  Six out of ten callers left in silence will hang up...      That's 60% of your customers! They may then call your competitor!      Silence is not an option!

Playing the Radio.  It's Free, Right?..........WRONG!

Many businesses play the radio through their on-hold lines and they're breaking the law... Just as it is illegal for Napster to market in copywrited music without paying the necessary royalties and fees, playing the radio through your  on-hold also requires the payment of royalties to ASCAP & BMI.  Besides, how many of your competitors use local radio advertising to promote their business?  Is that what you want your callers to hear, ads from your local competitors?

Elevator Music

Music only formats DO NOT provide any marketing benefits
and they often cost more than Tele•Hold™.

Employee Produced Announcements

It's cost effective... or is it ???   Home made recordings sound just that...home made. A professionally produced
Tele•Hold™ production will improve customer service levels and lengthen on-hold retention times. Tele•Hold™
productions let you inform and entertain your callers creating the "illusion" of shortened on-hold time. Tele•Hold™
can really mean the difference in your callers' attitudes and a difference in your business' bottom line.
