Welcome to the On Hold Messages Shop

Roll up up, get your professional voicemail recordings at the on hold message shop!


Well, it's not just for on hold, it also has unavailable, busy, out of office and COVID related messages.


You're right. That's a terrible opening paragraph so let's rewind a bit.


"What are you talking about, Martin?"


For a couple of months I've been thinking about how I can offer a service that is EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE. Generally, the cheapest type of voiceover money can buy is that in the telephony genre. If you compare the amount of people that see a TV ad against the amount of people that might hear a message on a phone, you'll understand why.


This considered, I wanted something that could be accessible, quick, easy and reasonably priced.


The idea I settled upon is generic (that makes them sound boring, they aren't) professionally recorded telephone messages. By generic, I simply mean that they're 'catch-all'.


No company name is attached to the message, so any business type can use them.

"But what do you get out of it?"


MONEY HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA. I've kept the cost low for the reason I spoke of above - accessibility. We're in a time where everybody is finding it tough. So rather than cutting prices across the board, a new lower cost product seemed like a good alternative.


You still get the quality of a studio recording and it doesn't hurt your pocket. They're recorded to the same standard as any other project I've worked on.


"SO WHY CHARGE AT ALL YOU VILLAIN?!"


I spent time writing the scripts, recording them and editing them. There's also costs to host the shop and fees for each transaction.


But if you want even more of a discount. Here's a 25% off code that runs 'til lockdown 3 is officially lifted in the UK. It's rather imaginative: LOCKDOWN

"Enough! Just tell me what stock you have"


You can have a look at the shop here, which shows all of the products, in groups.

"I want to listen before I buy"


Go on then! Get over to the shop page and click the play buttons. They're watermarked for security with me sounding creepy in the background saying... "watermark"... original, I know.

And if you really like reading, you can print off the scripts and get stuck in here.


"SOLD! GIMME GIMME GIMME!"


When you want to buy, just click "add to cart" like with any other online store. It's totally secure and I see nothing of the transaction details. You'll get an email link to download your telephone message in WAV format but there is also a download button on the page that appears after the transaction.


Like I said earlier - it's quick. You can buy voicemail greetings and start using them right away. No need to wait for me to record!


So that's it.


Don't forget the discount code: LOCKDOWN
