    There are many voice broadcasting companies online but choosing the right one can save you thousands of dollars depending on your monthly volume. You can get rates for about 1.875 cents per minute which is a very competitive price. I have used voice broadcasting in a few of my businesses with great success. You have to know the correct way to use it to stay compliant with the new FCC laws.

      OK so I went to your link as I was planning to use Callfire next week, but there's NO PRICE listed anywhere on your site. I mean, come on!

      I like the scrubbing against the DNC, the compliance with the TCPA, etc. But no fees listed makes me quite wary!

      I don't want to "sign up for a free account" before knowing the details. Respect your prospect's time and you'll turn more into clients. Just saying.

        I do appreciate the constructive criticism regaurdind the site not having a price structure. This is something I will look into adding in the future.

        As far as call fire I know they have been around for quite a while and have many more features to offer. If you are looking for just a voice broadcasting solution I can definatley beat those prices. They are using a scaled pricing structure that they must follow.

        There is no need to sign up for the free trial. Just tell me your monthly estimated volume and I will quote you a price. No more No Less!

          I will send you a PM about the estimated volume.

          BTW, especially since you say you CAN beat their price, I would plaster it all over the site.

      If your business or non-profit organization is seeking to influence consumers, then you will likely know that under current legislation it is illegal to fax individuals despite the fact that many have fax machines.

      However, it is not illegal to phone individuals in their own home (so long as they are not registered with the Telephone Preference Service – TPS).

      Voice broadcasting offers the opportunity to reach up to 500,000 consumers an hour (under optimum conditions) with a pre-recorded short message about your company’s products or services. The message is able to invite interaction in that the listener, if wanting more information, can be invited to press 1 to speak to an operator, 2 for a brochure, etc.

      Well known celebrities can be used to deliver powerful messages – whether to sell products/services or raise money for good causes.

      Since voice messages are digitally recorded there is never any variation in message delivery. It is always consistent and absolutely perfect – every time.

        riyoki I have used many different companies which most are all the same just with different interfaces. The most important question to ask is how are you going to be billed. You need to get billed in 6 second increments. This will make sure you get the most out of your campaign/minute.

      I'd like to know more about your voice broadcasting service. Please let me know how you charge, as I'm looking at different companies right now, and I'd like to start my campaign ASAP. Thank You

    When I saw "voice blaster" I was intrigued...
    So - online "voice broadcasting" is just another new way to spin "telemarketing answering machine message"?
    Which unless they have pre-"opted" to receive them, is not allowed anymore as far as I understand...
    Is this going to mobile or random broadcast? - I wasn't clear when I saw the term "voice broadcasting"...?

    After reading the website above - it does say it conforms to tcpa regs, but robocalling is robocalling - you have to have an outstanding message to get attention, or it's toast.
    The days of "Hello - my name is Bob, and I'm a telecomputer..." calling people at 4am are looong gone.

      There's no laws against B2B calling like this.

      There's a company I know that is offering offline services with this method and they don't have enough people to answer all of the incoming calls from these campaigns, they've even got a floor in the Empire State Building now! Just from this method.

    Twilio is 1c/minute inbound calls 2c/minute outbound calls

    you can use openvbx to do your robocalling

    but i would make sure what your doing is legal in your state as pleading ignorance wont hold up well in a court of law...

        Use the subscription plugin. To the right of any list you'll see SMS and Call. Click on call and you can assign a flow to go to that list. You'll have to simply set up a flow that plays an mp3.

        I would check to see how legal blasting out to random numbers is though. You can upload numbers (csv) into the subscription plugin, but I would think just uploading phone numbers and sending out voice messages would be considered spam.

          ONCE UPON A TIME there was a Warrior named Bob. He was sad. And frustrated. You see, Warrior Bob spent every last nickel on Internet Marketing e-books. But nothing panned out. No traffic. No sales. He was one sad Bob. Then one day Bob found a bottle. He rubbed it and out came a Genie who granted him 3 wishes. For Wish #1 Bob asked for a pet Dragon. Wish Granted. For Wish #2, Bob wanted Warriors' websites seen by 53 million TV viewers, for under $5 per broadcast. The Genie said... (click here)

    I'm looking into automated voice broadcasts from OpenVBX to offer to an organization to contact their organization members in emergencies. I'm not looking to advertise anything.

    Is there a plug-in or flow applet that I am missing? Is it possible to broadcast to a 1000 list say 2-3 times a year?

    I voice broadcast and it's fantastic but it does fall into some pretty murkey grey area legally. The voicemail-only campaigns are definitely a lot safer to do. When you're shopping for price, don't just look at the per-minute charge because it's slightly misleading. You want to look at how they determine a full minute.

      If you are voice broadcasting to a consumer's cell phone there is no "murkey grey area" under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. If you do not have prior express consent, which means written, the fine is $500 for the first call and can be up to $1500 per call after that if it can be shown that you called willfully and knowingly.

      This applies to SMS messages as well. OUCH!

      You can call a residential line with an auto dialer system as long as you don't leave a pre-recorded message.

      The TCPA also allows for private right of action which means an individual can file and collect the statutory damages.

        What happens if I use voice broadcasting to deliver a message to a "plumber" who is using his home phone as his business phone (In the yellow pages)??

        Can I get sued/fined for that?

    Interesting I found this old thread. I've been doing it for years, settled down using Message Communication (Message Communications, Inc. - The Most Advanced & Lowest Cost Voice Broadcasting Platform). For two reasons... these guys have a list of people who file lawsuits and complain to the FCC (they call it the internal do-not-call list or something like that), and they're the cheapest. I'm paying 0.007 per minute (7/10ths of a penny). Been happy using them for a while. Funny thing, found a few companies like "turnkey" and some others that just buy the service from them and re-sell it. They were the cheapest i found, and they're not reselling someone else.

      I guess it does, but seriously.... is the government going to come after me? (lil, ole me?) Besides, they have this internal list they call the "Vexation Litigant List", some internal list they have, of all the people who cause trouble. I've been using the system a while, no problems, so i guess it works.

    By saying this makes me cringe. Cheap does not reflect the effectiveness of an outlet at all. that said the cost should always out-way the ROI. If not you should not be in bed with that outlet. My advice is look for a professional like a multimedia specialist to help you seek out and design the proper campaign that fits your budget. This just happens to fit within my specialty so I understand this first hand.
