Ask the Answer Guy – Voice message broadcasting.

Brent – Is there a service that stands out above others for broadcasting voice messages to my clients?

Take a look at CallFire. Their platform specializes in fund raising, collections calls, emergency notices, political campaign advertisements and many other similar situations. There are many companies that do a good job with phone campaigns, but CallFire seems to be the easiest to use. Their website allows you to sign up for free and test the service with free minutes. If you like what you see, it is just a matter of funding your account, creating phone lists, recording a message and blasting away. The entire process of importing numbers, creating your message and sending it out shouldn’t take any more than ten minutes and having such a smooth experience makes CallFire worth it.

There is also a great reporting system that comes with this service. Phone menus can be used to allow recipients to be placed on a do-not-call list and you can track all activity and outcomes of each batch of messages sent out. You can run detailed reports that total the number of calls answered, went to answering machine, got a busy signal, got a bad number error etc. Head over to and watch some of the information videos and learn how their service can customize itself to fit your business needs.
