Updating Your On Hold Recordings

How often you should be updating your on hold recordings depends on the particular needs of your business and your customers. Some businesses can get away with updating their messages a few times per year, while others may need a new recording every month. Your guide should be how often you customers call – if they call regularly, it’s important that you update your messages on hold quite frequently.

Whether or not your customers call every day or every 6 months, you should always actively seek to update your messages with information about new products/services, events, news or specials.

Got on hold music? You should update this too, as listening to the same piece of music over and over again can be even more frustrating than outdated voice recordings!

Is it time to update?

Consider the following:

  • Are your current on hold recordings out of date in any way?
  • Have you got a new product or service to promote?
  • Are you running any promotions or specials?
  • Can you pre advise when you will be closing or staying open over a holiday period?
  • Has your business won an award or achieved something worth sharing?
  • Is there a seasonal event coming up soon?

If you answered yes to any of these, it’s probably time to refresh the information in your on hold recordings.

When you should definitely update your messages

You should update your on hold recordings when you have the following:

  • New products or services
  • Changes to your business
  • Special promotions or discounts
  • Exciting news or upcoming events

On hold recordings are most effective when they’re updated regularly, so don’t put off updating yours.
