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 easy!
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.
