A few days ago I found out about a service that allows you to receive voicemails directly from your website; Speak Pipe.
I’m not really a phone person, however not everyone is like me, so I thought I’d try Speak Pipe on my website to give people another way to reach me that may be more suited to them. I installed and tested this just a few minutes ago.
Here’s how it looks on the page. You just click on the black bar at the right hand side and this window pops up. Then you can record your message and click to send it. You can listen to it before you send it and start over if you don’t like what you’ve recorded. Super easy!
When you receive a message you just click to listen to it, and you have the option to record a message and send it to the person who left you the message. (or contact them via email…..)
At first I hadn’t configured the settings so people didn’t have to enter their name/email, but I changed that – I kind of need to know people’s name/ email in order to get back to them! Changing settings on this tool is very easy, and there are lots of options to customize it, which I like so you can customize it more to the look and feel of your website.
You can also add Speak Pipe to your Facebook page with just a few clicks and no technical knowledge. Check out my Facebook page to see how it looks.
In terms of cost, the free version allows you 20 messages per month and after that plans start at $5 per month.
Overall I think this is a fun option but I’m not convinced people will use this feature (If you want to prove me wrong, or try it out? Just leave me a message.)
