production length & frequency of updates?

Ned the Woolly Mammoth

They are the questions that have plagued humankind since the beginning: "How long should my on hold messaging content be?"..."How do I know how often to update that content?"...and "Does this woolly mammoth pelt make my hips look big?"

We'll focus on the first two questions for now. Here are a few guidelines.

If your customers call frequently (once or more per week) or if you have longer hold times, consider using 8-minute productions and updating them 6 to 12 times per year. If you have fewer callers and/or shorter hold times, your marketing needs may be served with 4-minute productions that are updated 2 to 4 times per year. (Say hello to our friendly Hold Time Calculator here.)

There's no one answer. Each company has different calling patterns, hold times and marketing needs, all of which determine the length of your production and how often you update it. The bottom line: 1) make sure your on hold messaging content is current, and 2) that it's changed often enough so your most important callers don't hear it more than 3 or 4 times.
