The telephone hold line can be an effective marketing tool that boosts sales. What happens at your business when you have to put callers on hold? Is there a black hole of silence? A beep that is infinitely annoying? Radio static? Or maybe a tinny tune that repeats over and over? What would you want to hear and how long would you wait? Go ahead, call your business and ask reception to put you on hold.
If there is absolutely nothing…
- Take this test: set the alarm on your smartphone for 30 seconds…then do nothing until it goes off. Did you nod off? Were you tempted to opt out early?
If there is a beep…
- How do you feel? Agitated? Frustrated? Like it’s a complete waste of your time?
You can see how it just takes a few seconds waiting on-hold for a caller to choose to wait for you to get back to them…or…hang up and go to the next company listed in their online search.
