Customized Greetings

Running a business successfully often means providing quality products and services. And this includes offering enhanced and personalized customer service. Using customized greetings in your phone system is one such way to make callers comfortable and trusting of your business. Besides that, customized phone greetings let you:

  • Create and record your personalized greeting and stand out from the crowd
  • Give a professional image to your customers
  • Make your business sound different and unique
  • Stand out from your competitors

What are Customized Phone Greetings?

Our cloud business phone service offers businesses and individuals the option to create customized greeting messages for incoming calls on their local or toll-free numbers. You can create a phone greeting that adheres to your branding and your business specifications and greet your callers the way you want with your company’s unique style. Or, you can use the greeting to include important information about your business such as location and hours, etc.

What do Customized Greetings Do?

The customized phone greeting feature gives you the ability to record and include a personalized phone greeting for your business. Then, every time a caller calls your business phone number, they will hear the greeting before the call connects to its final destination or forward-to number.

For example: Include a greeting with your business name such as LogoMakers. Then, your message could say — ‘Welcome to LogoMakers, please wait while we connect your call.’

Once this message is played, the call will automatically connect to the destination number.

Why Use Customized Phone Greetings?

At its very basic level, these customized greetings make a good first impression when new customers call your business. Additionally, when you include a custom greeting welcoming them to your company, callers can confirm that they are calling the right place.

Additionally, if you include a human voice or bilingual greetings, you make their interaction with your phone system better than if they were greeted by a fuzzy answering machine or a voicemail message.

How to Get This Feature?

United World Telecom offers this feature for free with any of our virtual phone number plans. Simply buy a phone number and benefit from our wide range of included calling features.

And with this value-added customized greeting feature, you can benefit in many ways. Develop a customized script to welcome your callers and include instructions for them to use your phone menu.
