Over the past decades on hold music for business has become an essential aspect of customer service. Yet, with more recent technological innovations business hold music has allowed smaller businesses to look more prominent while helping larger business look more friendly, in both cases reaffirming to clients that their call is valued.

The proof is in the practice

Studies conducted by research companies have highlighted consumer perceptions of on hold music and messages, reinforcing the necessity to incorporate on hold music for business into customer service operations.

A study of more than 2000 consumers in the UK revealed that 70% of callers are put on hold for the majority of their calls. Of those callers 73% wanted to hear something other than silence or the telephone dial tone, while another 80% preferred to hear information messages that could potentially be useful. Consistent with these findings, a CNN study conducted in the US found that 70% of callers who are kept on hold in silence will hang up within 60 seconds, while if callers are hearing music while on hold they will stay on the line 30 seconds longer. Furthermore, 34% of callers who hung up due to silence have no intention of calling back. While on the flip side, 42% of callers stayed longer due to on hold music and messages related to the company’s services, of which led to an 19% increase in sales.
