Broadcasting Solution Benefited Travel and Tourism Industry

As per the study, the ratio of traveling has been increased in a past decade by almost 67%. It means people are traveling more often than before. The reason behind this increased ratio of travelers could be many. To take a few examples, the businesses are dealing with the international clients so the key executives need to travel from one country to another. The business trip could also be from one state to another. If we see another scenario, due to stressful work life people used to travel to have some relaxation time. It can be a one day picnic or a mini holiday vacation at some exotic travel destination. This turned into the favor of travel and tourism business. The travel and tourism industry can gain maximum benefit because of this changing human need. However, the world is growing faster than before, so the old mechanisms of serving the customers would not be enough to stand in the fierce competition. Each travel agency or an agent has to integrate the advanced mechanisms and tools to serve the customers. They also need to stay in touch with them for customer relationship maintenance so they can ensure that each time he/ she travels, he/ she takes benefit of their service only.

The voice broadcasting solution is one of the tools which can be used by the travel and tourism industry to cater their customers in a better way. It will also work as a great customer relationship maintenance tool. The broadcasting solution allows sending a voice message by call broadcasting. You may record the voice message in your own voice to give it a personalized touch or you can also upload a recorded voice message file. The broadcasting solutions also provide the option of text to speech conversion, which means, you may write a text message which will be converted into an audio message. You may then send that message to your customers. The broadcasting solution can also be used to broadcast the text messages. The most advanced benefit of the broadcasting solution is that you can send a personalized message to each customer in a one go. It means you can send thousands of messages at a time and you don’t need to send it again and again.

The broadcasting solution also allows scheduling the messages which need to get broadcast. It means if you are managing a tour of 5 days and the schedule is fixed, you may schedule the common messages, which will automatically get broadcast on a time specified by you.  For example, if you have arranged a tour of 5 days and on the first day of the journey, at 9 AM all passengers need to be present at the cafeteria of the hotel for breakfast. Then you may schedule a voice broadcasting message which will be sent to each passenger. If at 10 AM bus will leave for first tourist point, so the passengers need to get congregated at the lobby of the hotel, then again the system will broadcast the scheduled message to each passenger. This will not only save your time of calling or telling each passenger individually, but will also create a better image of your tourism service.

Using the voice broadcasting solution, you may also greet the birthdays and festivals to your passenger or send them the promotional messages of your next tour. This way, you will be able to stay in touch with your customers and gain better customer response. This will contribute to the growth of your business.

Voice Broadcasting For the Loan Modification Industry

Loan Modification consultants have a commodity that many Americans want and need today. Voice broadcasting is cutting edge technology for getting services and products in front of the specific people who can benefit from them.

With foreclosure rates at a record high many lenders are willing to adjust mortgage notes and are supplying lists of names to home retention consultants. Citigroup, Countrywide, JP Morgan, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are some of the lenders willing to negotiate notes for home and investment properties before a foreclosure occurs.

Voice broadcasting is the most effective and cost efficient tool home loan modification consultants have available to them. With the average cost of mailing campaigns being over 75 cents per item and 50% of all emails being challenged by spam filters robo calls at 2 to 5 cents per minute is the most economical way to reach the huge number of mortgage holders out there.

Known by many names voice broadcasting is a mass communication method that sends pre-recorded telephone messages to thousands of telephone numbers at one time. Specially configured computers called auto dialers dial phone numbers and leave messages requesting a call back. Vendors services report 90% of the massive number of telephone numbers dialed result in a message being left. Hundreds of phone calls can be made within an hour. The voice broadcasting auto-sensing technology has advanced to the point that it can determine if the call is picked up by a live person or an answering machine. A live person can be switched to a consultant immediately while the voice broadcasting message can be left on the answering machine.

Answering machine messages are generally listened to completely and only those contacts who are interested call the contact number left in the message. Some voice broadcasting systems even offer a ring less message capacity assuring the call will not irritate the recipient by interrupting their meal or social event. The message is heard the next time the intended contact checks their messages. Consultants and customers are removed from the adversarial cold call environment of the 1980’s style telemarketing.

The technology was developed in the 1990’s and has matured into a highly effective business-to-consumer message system often referred to as direct response marketing. Loan modification advertising dollars that previously went towards Internet pay per click ads and paper postcards are being redirected to voice broadcasting subscriptions each year. When voice broadcasting is used loan modification consultants take incoming calls from people that are interested in finding out more about loan modification options.

When these calls are combined with a targeted phone list of potential loan modification recipients this type of campaign can make for exciting results. The data used could be a list of homeowners with adjustable rate mortgages, mortgage late payments, or other mortgage targeted databases. And by exciting results I mean have each loan modification representative slammed with incoming calls, keeping them very busy and happy with their job.

Getting the most out of your loan modification voice broadcasting campaign can be challenging. When looking for a voice broadcasting company make sure to take your time and do your research to get the best deal.
