Remember that one voice telling you “always do your homework”? Well, just because they’re not beside you at work to remind you, you should still be taking their wise advice before entering into any kind of business agreement. Take the time to compare prices before agreeing to any contract; it’s all about making the most educated decision for your company.
Everyone hated the aggressive traveling salesman who came to town and said whatever it took to make the sale, refusing to leave before the dotted line had been signed, then “bye, see ya” (or not). Some companies say whatever they need to in order to close a sale. Big promises….very little care or support…
If there is one thing you should learn from this blog, it should be to COST COMPARE.
If you feel you are too busy to search on the internet or call around…make that time or have someone else do it for you. It could save you lots of time, money and effort in the long run. Look for a price range that fits the company’s budget. Paying more money does not translate into a better product. Compare apples to apples; what are you actually getting for your money? Do you really need, or want, those extras?
Before you sign that agreement with just any on-hold message provider why not give On-Hold Marketing a call. We’ve been providing professionally-recorded on-hold messages for over 30 years, so we have the experience. Plus, we’re local! We’re Canadian-owned and operated, which means we have a great response time, and quick turnaround time for all recordings. Everything we do is custom-tailored for your business. Even our prices are custom fit to your business on hold needs.
Make sure that you’re working with a well-established business; that you can access your on-hold rep when you need them; that their studio is able to accommodate deadlines and, that the writers and support staff look out for your best interest. Researching a product first will give you the confidence that you’ve made the right choice.
