Leaving the choice of music for your on hold system to the office assistant, as is the case in many businesses, can be a big mistake. Too often, business owners never even stop to think how much impact a simple music file can make to the success of their business. The truth is, choice of music can say a lot about you and your company.

It's important to try and match your music choice as closely as possible to the likely tastes of your customers. Anything too "way out" and you'll be alienating visitors. Then again, if you're too formal that won't give the right impression, either. There's no one "right" format that fits all companies, but on the whole, they all need to reflect an image that's upbeat and professional.

Getting the Selection Right

While the choice may not be easy, getting your selection of on hold music just right can elicit just the right response from your customers. Music has the curious ability to affect our moods, even to trigger emotions and feelings. Without them even realizing it, the music they hear could have a compelling effect on callers to your business.

It is no exaggeration to say that the right choice of music for your on hold system can increase business. So you can never give too much attention even to this seemingly minor facet of your business practice. The overall impact of your business is the sum total of all your facets, so each one must receive the utmost consideration and care if you're to achieve the results you desire.
