Any luck with Ringless Voice Drops?

by 37 comments
I've seen some people posting that they've done the voicemail drops for lead gen, but has anyone tried using the ringless system to target cell phones?

I tried the ringless voicemail drops through Stratics Networks. It worked pretty well and was easy to set up through a self-serve portal.

Has anyone else had experience targeting cell phones this way?

    I've had great success not with ringless but normal voice broadcast voicemail drops but the only businesses I've done well with are contractors. Most seem to use their cell phones and don't answer their phone lol.

    Are you talking about for cell phone to consumers or businesses?

    I think the idea is that it's only illegal if there is a possible charge that can be levied against the cell customer.

    I was reading up on the process from some of the providers and it does a server connection with the voicemail system, allowing it to drop the message directly into the voicemail without placing a call.

      Seek professional legal advice. Don't rely on a marketing forum for this kind of advice.

    The success rate for ringless on mobiles is actually far better than on landlines.

    As for legalities, that is a concern. There is one group that says that ringless does not violate TCPA regs in that the phone never rings. That may be the case, but I don't think there have been any test cases on that yet.

    As for our customers, we only want to send messages to those that are a user group for instance where there is an existing relationship with the business.

    I had some nice success. I found that most of my voice broadcasting lists were cell phones. Now the Ringless Voice Drop hits them with out interrupting and they usually call me back just to see whats it all about. It gets the conversation going. Business is picking up nicely.

    I use Callfire for Voiceblasts.

    I've had some success with them, getting people to call back. My best scripts to non-profits
    got a 10% callback rate - to businesses it was usually a lot worst, 3% or so.

      I've been out of the scene for like a year or so, but I used like three or four different companies to do the calls, use call fire (like 3 cents a call), voice shot (12 cents a call), and another one (cant remember their name) they all averaged a few cents a call. I did end up settling down with message communications - Message Communications, Inc. - The Most Advanced & Lowest Cost Voice Broadcasting Platform, their prices were the cheapest (was paying less than a penny a call).

    I have had a lot of success with slybroadcast. I use slydial all the time to reach my clients when I am short on time and this is so much easier. I record a voice mail and can send it out to hundreds of clients at one time. It goes right to their voice mailbox without ringing the phone. Its amazing! I have received 6 listings this year with slybroadcast alone!!! Worth every penny!

      They are really a nice way to send out messages or
      even for selling individual products.

      I think you will see this get really popular for a while, don't know
      how long it will last though. I say use it now, will it is still a shinny new object.

    The RVM service, only delivers to cell phones. I tried them and they took out my business line and home number out of the list.... I'm still using message communications to do the voicemail only drops, they actually called all my numbers, left a voicemail on my answering machine. I paid so much for my list, I'm not ok with only delivering my message to the cell phones ONLY, it's a waste of the rest of my list.
