A couple of years ago we decided that it was time to lavish a little Eyeful love on an area oft neglected by businesses – hold music.
Being on hold can be one of the most life-force-sucking wastes of time available and it’s easily made better (or worse) by the quality of what you’re forced to listen to. After all you’re not going to dare to stop listening because of that infernal universal law ensuring that your call will only be answered during a period of inattention on your part.
In true Eyeful style we decided to eschew Greensleeves and turn our backs on unending lists of services that would be available, should anybody ever answer the phone. We set out to make the on hold experience altogether more entertaining. So every month a member of our HQ team chooses a favourite track and we tell our holdees a little bit about that person and why they picked that track.
Consequently (and quite apart from being one of the best presentation consultancy and design services in the world) I’m confident in saying that we’re probably unique when it comes to receiving requests to be put back on hold.
The whole project has been much more successful than we could have imagined and now we’re hoping to spread the love by offering our friends, customers and followers the chance to join in.
All you need to do is click on this link and tell us what you’d like to hear and why, then our Earful audio guru Matt will work his magic and you’ll be able to hear your favourite tune every time you ring us.
