On hold message FAQ’s

You can write the script yourself or speak with our copywriters to craft the script for you. Once you are happy with the messaging we will help you select the voice over talent, any music and sound effects if required.

From the time you approve the script we can turnaround the finished on hold message in 4 business days. However, if it’s urgent, we can turn it around in just 1-2 business days.

A standard on hold message is between 4 to 6 minutes long. Businesses with longer on hold times may opt for a longer on hold message.

The average phone call is placed on hold for an average of 45 seconds. Ideally, your caller should hear different content every time they ring your business for maximum marketing and customer service impact.

The voice you choose will essentially become the voice of your business, so the right voice over artist for the work is important.

For example, a child's voice for a children’s day care centre sends a different message to an older female voice at a hospital or clinic. Or, a subtle British accent might be appropriate for a luxury car dealership. The possibilities are endless.

Hardy Audio has an extensive professional audio library with thousands of music and sound effect tracks to choose from. Whether it's a cheering crowd or a cat meowing Hardy Audio will find it for you.
