    I recently read about this guy who was doing custom hold messages for companies..basically sales pitches that companies could use whenever they put customers on hold. Read in a WSO, I think it's called $200k custom hold method or something like that. Anyway, does anyone have any experience with it? He charges upto $499/month for just a few custom messages that he makes on fiverr.

    Sounds expensive. We use grasshopper phone service for some sites and they charge $75 for a message I think and you have choice of accents and men or women voice actors. You can also upload your own hold messages for free, well you have a monthly fee for the phone service but that's it.

    Yea that's what I thought! But guy said he only goes after people who spend a ton on advertising costs. And that most end up staying at least 6 months. Doesn't seem like as much work once you have the client though.

    I have gone through that thread. He used to write the hold messages and outsource voice recordings.

    Interesting. How would you monetize a method like this?

    There always will be people around who'd pay 10 times what it'd cost if they just spent the time to look around a little...
