There is a new way for companies to create, send, and track messages sent to people that want to hear from them, and it’s called Do-It-Yourself Voice Messaging, from a company called Vontoo. Using Voice Over IP technology, Vontoo voice messaging gives companies a whole new way to reach customers by phone.
Why voice messaging? Without having to purchase additional hardware or software, organizations can record messages using just a phone, identify which calls reached an actual person, determine ideal call times, and automatically transfer the recipient to a ticket office or service line. For example, to promote the appearance of American Idol finalist Lakisha Jones at a weekly nightclub gathering, the promotional team had Jones record an invitation to the event. Using the phone numbers of past club attendees who had given their permission to be contacted, the team used Vontoo’s messaging technology to download the numbers, and then scheduled the calls.
Vontoo offers a no-obligation 30 day free trial, and the first 50 calls are free. They have a free “webinar” every Thursday at 3:00 p.m. EST to explain exactly how to create a message, add individuals or groups to a call list, upload an audio file, schedule and send a call, and track the results. Vontoo also has a newsletter delivered by email with calling tips and more. Vontoo is a great way for companies and organizations to reach people who want to be contacted by phone.
