These 8 Voice Broadcasting Pitfalls Should Be Avoided

Voice broadcasting is a powerful instrument for mass communication that allows businesses of all sizes to interact and engage with their customers.

While voice broadcasting is highly effective, it is not without flaws, and costly mistakes can be made. To ensure that you get the most out of your campaigns, we’ve detailed the frequent blunders to avoid below so you can get a head start on your new voice broadcast campaign.


1. Improper or absent targeting

Your voice broadcast message will fall flat if it isn’t targeted to the correct audience, no matter how professional or compelling it is. Personalized and targeted communications elicit emotion and connection, increasing conversion rates.

Before you start writing messages, figure out who you’re marketing to. Investigate your target audience’s general demographic features, such as gender, geography, education, and marital status, as well as more specific qualities, such as pain spots, interests, and difficulties. Make sure your message, tone, and campaign are tailored to the specific population you’re seeking to target.


2. It’s been too long


To avoid your recipients hanging up, keep your messages under 30 seconds. A message of 15-20 seconds may be the sweet spot, but experiment with other message durations to see what your clients prefer.


3. Strategic communication

Add the finest content to the first 5-8 seconds of your message to avoid hangups. To avoid the recipient thinking your voice broadcast message is spam, first introduce yourself. Then, if they continue to listen, state the significant benefits they will gain. Also, avoid making a full-fledged sales presentation if you’re sending promotional texts. Declare your promotion, but make it interesting so that your buyers feel connected to your business rather than turned off.


4. It’s too impersonal and uninteresting.


Maintain a professional tone in your mails, but refrain from speaking in a monotonous manner. Long pauses and extraneous details should be avoided. When designing voice broadcast messaging, remember to be friendly and think about your target demographic. If you’re talking to stay-at-home moms, for example, your tone will be different than if you’re talking to male bodybuilders who could be interested in a fitness equipment deal.


5. Excessively fast/excessively slow

It’s simple to speak abruptly in order to keep messages brief, yet speaking too quickly will confuse people. Slow down your speech so that your contacts can fully comprehend what you’re saying. The goal is to keep the speed slow enough that people can hear and understand all of the subtleties, but not so slow that it drags on.


6. A lack of practice


Before you record your message, go over your script again. Before you send your message, listen to it to check the tempo, tone, and personality. Have a couple more folks listen and provide input.


7. Incorrect timing

What time do you send your messages? A great voice broadcast campaign relies heavily on timing. To determine the optimal times to call your contacts, consult your target audience study. For example, a career professional may not be available to take your call during the day, but a 5-7 p.m. call window may be great for this target. Your audience of stay-at-home mothers, on the other hand, would prefer a daily phone call, particularly around their child’s naptime.


8. Not testing before sending

Consider testing your message with a small subset of contacts if you’re new to voice broadcasting or sending a campaign message for the first time. Send the message to your entire targeted list if it performs well. If it doesn’t work, rework the message until you find one that does. Note: Don’t send the same message to the same people over and over again. Exclude your original test group as you send new messages to test, so your messages aren’t misunderstood as spam.
