DialMyCalls is proud to announce that our free Santa Calls will be returning for the 2012 Christmas season.
The holiday season has officially
started and with that comes the return of our extremely popular Santa
Calls. Last year DialMyCalls launched our free personalized calls
from Santa Claus which were amazingly successful. Parents all across
the country expressed to us how much they appreciated our partnership
with Santa and their kids were thrilled when good ole' Saint Nick
called them with a personalized message.
Beginning today, November 14, 2012, our
Santa Calls are officially available to schedule. Keep in mind that
while you can schedule a time for Santa Claus to call your children
today, the first wave of calls will not begin until December 1, 2012.
Spread a ton of holiday cheer this
Christmas season by having Santa Claus call your children using our
free Santa Calls service!
Share our personalized calls from Santa
with all of your friends and family by tweeting #SantaCalls on Twitter - let every child across the
country experience the joy of receiving a personal call from Santa
The team at DialMyCalls will be flying from sunny South Florida to Austin, Texas in October to participate in Tough Mudder 2012.
Deemed as "probably the toughest
event on the planet," Tough Mudder is a 12 mile long obstacle
course that tests endurance, physical strength and the ability to
overcome fears such as running through a field of electrified wires -
I hear that one is a real shocker. In October, DialMyCalls and our
staff will be traveling to Austin, Texas to participate in Tough
Mudder 2012 - it will surely be an experience that we will never
In the months leading up to Tough
Mudder, the staff here at DialMyCalls will be holding our own little
challenge as we get prepared for what will surely be a mud-filled
hell on earth in Austin, Texas. I speak for myself when I say that "exercise" has never really been a part of my daily routine -
all of that has changed as I prepare for Tough Mudder. One thing that
we all pretty much fail at here at DialMyCalls are double unders so
that is going to be our office challenge - the first person to do
20 consecutive double unders will be declared the winner.
The goal of our DialMyCalls office
challenge is to make sure that we are all prepared for Tough Mudder
2012 in Austin, Texas. With four months to go, the clock is slowly
ticking away and it is time for the pre-games to begin!
Recording a professional sounding voice message to send out to your business, clients, friends or family can be a tricky task.
Today we are going to go over a few
steps to help our members record the best possible voice message to
use with DialMyCalls. The first thing you are going to need to do is
sign up for an account with DialMyCalls - it's free and extremely
Once you have signed up for your
account, you are going to want to add some contacts that will receive
the voice message you are about to record. To do this, just go to the
My Contacts tab of your account and either enter them manually or
from an Excel spreadsheet. Now that you've added your contacts to
your account, let's record your message!
Our voice broadcasting service allows
you to record your voice message in three very different ways. Below
we will go over each recording method and give you tips on how you
can make them sound as good as possible:
Voice Message Recording Options + Tips
Using A Touch-tone Phone - This method of recording is the most popular on DialMyCalls as it is the quickest and easiest way to get a great sounding voice message. When selecting this option users will be prompted to enter their phone number so that our system can give them a ring. Make sure that you are answering the call on a newer phone that you can be heard clearly on. Once you answer our automated calling system, you will follow our automated prompts which will allow you to record your message.
The trick to a perfect voice message using our touch-tone phone method is quite simple. Do NOT have anything playing in the background (music, television, screaming babies, pets). There is also a method in which you should hold the phone to your mouth - you don't want it so close that you are eating it but you also don't want it too far away. Another great tip for recording a voice message is to have a script that you can read off of - this will reduce the likelihood that you stumble on your own words.
Upload An MP3 or WAV Sound file - Are you a tech savvy member of DialMyCalls? Do you have your own professional voice talent for your business? This option is for those who want to use their computer or a professional actor to record their voice message. With this method, the possibilities are limitless as you can add custom sound effects, music and other various cool features by using your computer and recording software. Should you choose to use this method, the big tip for you is to test your microphone volume before you record. Of course, as with the touch-tone phone method, you do not want any background noise going on while you are recording.
Text-to-Speech Tool - Members of DialMyCalls who wish to opt-out from recording their voice message can use this simple method. Simply type the message that you want recorded and our system will generate a computerized recording - I don't recommend this method if you are after a professional sounding message.
Professional Voice Talent - Don't have the perfect voice to record a great sounding voice message? DialMyCalls now offers a professional voice talent service in which you can choose from one of your 14 different voice actors and have them record your message for you! This service is an additional $25 per 30 second message and usually takes around 48 hours to complete.
