What Does Your On-Hold Music Say About Your Business

Share
posted on 28/02/2017

If you have a telephone On-Hold system, you need On-Hold music. You don't want to leave customers in silence while you answer their call. Choosing the right On-Hold music is vitally important as it not only affects the customer's mood, but it also reflects your business.

For example, for a business that sells classical instruments, or music lessons it would be beneficial to have some classical music as On-Hold music. This music is relatable to your business and the customer's interest. Likewise, a hotel or spa would look to incorporate relaxing, soothing music as to entice customers with what they can expect with their visit.

The audience demographic is also a key factor when choosing music On-Hold. If your main audience is under 30, then more youthful music like Indie Rock and Pop would be more suitable.

Another key role in choosing On-Hold music for your business is communicating your image and reputation to customers before they've spoken with you. For many corporate clients, music that conveys trust and reliability is important so that callers can make that association with your business. If the On-Hold music is loud, annoying and repetitive, it can create a bad mood with the caller before they've even got through.

Aside from the genre of music that best reflects your business, the choice of On-Hold music requires careful deliberation. We provide a handpicked selection of music tracks for use as On-Hold chosen for their sound, composition and style.

Music tracks that are very complex and dynamic are not always suitable for On-Hold music systems. This is because the telephone line can only support a low fidelity audio file, resulting in a highly compressed sound. This means that music with lots of guitars and drums will sound quite bad because the high compression causes the track to lose the clarity and dynamic range, resulting in a more 'mashed up' sound. The key to choosing the perfect track for music On-Hold is something simple, clear and steady paced.

The video below highlights the difference between a normal music track and when it has been compressed to the common on-hold format:

In the video above, you'll notice a distinct difference between the full quality music track, and the highly compressed On-Hold format. This is due to the maximum amount of data that can be transmitted through a telephone line. That's why you get that 'telephone' sound when people call into a radio station. It may appear clear when speaking person to person, but when you add music to the mix, it's noticeably different.

That's why it's important to choose a music track that translates well into the On-Hold format. We've got an entire category of music that has been hand-picked for use in telephone On-Hold systems for maximum compatibility. Sample some of our favourites below:

Google Scrapping Unskippable YouTube Ads

Share
posted on 22/02/2017

Google has announced it will be scrapping the 30 second ads you sometimes can't skip before playing a YouTube video. However, the move won't come into effect until 2018.

A spokesperson told BBC News:

"We've decided to stop supporting 30-second unskippable ads as of 2018 and focus instead on formats that work well for both users and advertisers."

There's currently two ways to avoid pre-roll ads on YouTube. You can subscribe to the Premium 'YouTube Red' service, which delivers an ad-free version of the platform for $10.00 per month, or use a browser based 'Ad-Block' plugin. However, many YouTube audiences access their content from mobile devices, smart TVs and home entertainment systems like games consoles which don't have any facility to skip ads.

The shorter ads and those that can be skipped after 5 seconds will still remain.

The move comes after a survey revealed many users felt the ads disrupted their experience of the platform so it's good to hear Google is listening to those that are supporting their platform.

The pre-roll ads are an important part of YouTube's revenue and users who create content for monetisation use this as a source of income for their channel. It's useful to note that any user creating content with the intention of monetising their content from such ads, needs to license royalty free music to ensure the revenue from any pre-roll ads goes to them. You can read more on licensing music correctly for YouTube here.

How will this affect the number of ads shown and potential revenue to content creators? We'll have to wait and see. One approach could be to better refine the ads shown and quality of ads. I'm sure there's been the odd advert you haven't skipped because it genuinely appealed to you...
