Sample Messages on Hold
Client on hold is the perfect chance for you to:
- Build on your professional image
On hold messages will be the first point of contact for many of your customers, so take advantage of it by presenting them with an on hold message the gives an overall impression of professionalism, great service, and product quality. Indifferent on hold messages can result in indifferent customers that are more likely to hang up than listen – so motivate them with an entertaining on hold message – and keep them on the line.
- Increase new products and services
Keep your customers informed of your business’ new products and services in your on hold message. This provides you with another advertising stream to promote new products and services directly to your customers, and allows for them to keep informed about new developments in your business.
- Decrease customer hang-ups
You’ve worked hard to get your customers to engage with you and your business – so don’t lose them at the first stage of connection. Engage and keep them on the line with information that is relevant, such as amazing product and service descriptions, and creative messages that captivate customers’ imagination – this will help to decrease the possibility of a hang-up.
- Encourage interaction with your customers
Encourage interaction with your customers by making the on hold message all about them, such as introducing ways they can connect with your company e.g. social media and newsletters – and the benefits of doing so e.g. coupons, discounts, and referral programs. By promoting interaction with your customers you encourage loyalty, which then is likely to generate sales, repeat business, and referrals.
- Improve your sales
On hold messages is a clever way to sell a product or service directly to your customers by providing a platform to showcase the key products and services they are likely to be interested in.

You will be the first who knows when the system shuts down
With the HTM System you can set the time and date of your messages or music.
Messages average 15-25 seconds in duration, with a 6-10 second gap. This means the customer is not inundated with too much information so they “switch off” from your message, but rather keep listening – and keep on the line.
Music changes with every second message, keeping your on hold messages fresh and updated.
