At least once a day, you probably receive a random text message that informs you of a new product, check out a lewd website, or asks you to send “load”. And you know how annoying that can be!
Now, from a business perspective, sending text messages as a marketing campaign is cheap. But it hardly gets result!
Goautodial, a three-year IT company owned by Filipinos, created a solution that benefits both the consumers and business owners with the creation of Voice Blast. Voice Blast is pretty much like sending mass text messages, but it’s a lot better!
What is Voice Blast?
Unlike sending prewritten (and mostly poorly written) messages, GoAutoDial’s cloud based automated dialer called the JustGoCloud, allows SMEs to call a list of telephone numbers uploaded into the web app.
Why it’s better than TextBlast?
Sending text messages to random lists of people hardly gets results. It is estimated that it only works 1% of the time. In addition, business owners can’t measure the efficiency of the campaign. A lot of factors can hinder for the targeted consumers to get the message. There’s no sure way to know whether the numbers in your contact list are still active or whether or not the person actually received the message.
Voice Blast addresses all this issue by providing SMEs the ability to send a voice message to the targeted group of potential customers. A voice message is a lot more personal, and the person receiving the message is more likely to respond.
Not only that, Voice Blast allows people to choose different options. For example:
Organizations can add “Press 1 if you’re interested” in the Voice Blast pre-recorded voice message. This means the small business owner now has a list of phone numbers (those who pressed “1”) that can be passed on to his telemarketers or field sales people.
How much does it cost?
Here’s the best part of using Voice Blast: it’s free! Yup, you heard it right. GoAutoDial sees the plight of business owners who run marketing campaigns that asks them to pay monthly fees—even if the campaign has been temporarily stopped.
With Voice Blast, business owners can take advantage of the 120- minute free to calls made in US and Canada upon sign up. They can use these free minutes to test the internet connectivity to the cloud or test other aspects of the initial setup.
After using the free minutes, organizations or business owners can take advantage of the prepaid type of payment—pretty much like the prepaid load credits for mobile phones. Charges can be as small as P2300 plus VAT, and payments can be conveniently made through Paypal and BDO.
Another awesome thing about Voice Blast is that it does not charge businesses for unanswered calls and charges calls every six seconds—not the full minute.
With the prepaid setup, organizations can focus more on the quality and efficiency of the campaign without worrying about exorbitant monthly fees.
Who can use Voice Blast?
Practically anyone can use Voice Blast. GoAutoDial created this service with SMEs in mind. But there are many organizations using this service such as schools and universities, politicians and government agencies, and event planners and coordinators.
With Voice Blast, businesses and organizations can have a cost efficient campaign. At the same time, consumers and potential customers are given the option to receive voice messages and provided options as to what they want to do upon hearing the message. So, it’s a win-win scenario for both parties!
