Queue Marketing – On-Hold Technologies

on hold marketing

Unfortunately, many businesses tend to overlook the value of on hold marketing and / or queue marketing. But, make no mistake it is a crucial customer experience and a marketing tool. After all, it enables you to communicate one-on-one with a captive audience. On-Hold Technologies will help you impact your business positively by improving customer retention, grow your business and drive revenue with our unique on-hold marketing and queue marketing solutions.

What Is On Hold Marketing?

On hold marketing and/or queue marketing is a smart and effective way to communicate with, and sell to callers, who are already in the “queue” by means of an on-hold message that is connected to your telephone system that callers listen to while on hold when they call you. Often, they are already in a buying frame of mind, giving you the perfect opportunity to play a message about another product/service or, simply, why your company is the better choice.

Queue Marketing delivers incredible results because every caller hears the on-hold advertising message. Thus, from a marketing perspective businesses should aim to optimize the waiting experience, not minimize the waiting time.

Business Benefits of On-Hold Marketing

On-Hold Marketing is a great opportunity to sell additional products and services, enhance your branding efforts, offer a more professional image, and provide helpful information to your callers. Some of the business benefits are outlined below:

  • Company Brand

    On-hold marketing improves brand appearance and recognition. Listening to the on-hold message will let callers know what your company is all about; it will improve customer experience and satisfaction, and will generate new sales.

  • Retain Callers

    No one likes listening to ‘dead-air’, dreaded beeps or dodgy music. Using well-crafted on-hold marketing messages can increase revenue by reducing the number of callers who abandon the call and hang up.

  • Promote New Products

    It is much easier to sell to existing customers. So, use the opportunity to tell them one-on-one about your range of products/services while they are holding.

  • Generate New Sales

    Promote your special offers to callers in the on-hold message. When the call is answered, they can purchase the product. Easy.

  • Drive Callers to Your Website

    It is very likely that your callers will be sitting in front of a computer when calling. So, why not send them to your website? They might even buy something!

  • Cross Sell

    Clients have notoriously short memories – they often forget that you provide other products and services. Cross promote products/services to remind them while they are waiting.
