How to Amplify Lead Generation with a blend of Voice Broadcasting and Ringless Voicemail?

I won’t be entirely wrong in saying that the current market is saturated with various kinds of tech and tools, making it nearly impossible to pick out the best method for lead generation.

How to Amplify Lead Generation with a blend of Voice Broadcasting and Ringless Voicemail

Today I’m sharing two technologies in the domain of direct marketing- Ringless Voicemail and Voice Broadcasting.

Ringless Voicemail and Voice broadcasting can really amp up your outreach efforts without spending much time and money.

They are two of the most plausible channels for marketing products and services and creating greater brand awareness.

Voice Broadcasts are recorded messages that help you keep your customer updated in real-time. They are pre-recorded messages with no actual agent on the line. Voice Broadcasting is also commonly referred to as the “press one” method. The voice broadcasting system calls the individual, plays a message, for example weather update in case of turbulent weather or an emergency alert for evacuation for the same. An example could be, “This is the California Weather Department. A storm is approaching the southern coast of California and is expected to make landfall at around 1700 hours. All residents and commuters are requested to find shelter immediately. For further updates press “1” or press “2” to connect with a live agent.”

This method for communication is very favoured. It saves you the trouble of dialling a long list of contacts.

Not having to make so many cold calls to all those people will save you and your employees a lot of time and money in the long run. And in case of emergency services such as the example given above, Voice Broadcasting can be a more quicker and effective way of getting the message across to a large number of people.

Now moving on to Ringless Voicemail. This service drops a voicemail directly into the consumer’s voicemail without ringing their phones. They can listen to the message whenever they get the time.

Talking about all those leads that never answer your phone. With Ringless Voicemail, your messages can reach them now. The high listen rate, ensures that your message is being heard. Not to mention that this technology is also fairly inexpensive, much more affordable than traditional and web advertising. This service also prevents you from being “that” harassing tele-caller which puts off consumers and the resultant irritation is one of the major reasons why so many leads go unproductive.

Imagine you have a healthy database of lists, leads that are just waiting to be reached. By using a blend of Voice broadcasting and Ringless Voicemail, you can reach out to more prospects and have greater chances of converting them to buyers. Both of these technologies are an excellent way to amplify your leads, get more callbacks, ultimately creating more value for your company and filling in your coffers.

Good News for Salesforce users!

Get new leads added to your Salesforce account easily

Good news for businesses using Salesforce. You can now get your leads stored in Salesforce directly. So now after you attach your LinkedIn account to Salesforce and run lead generation ads in your lead gen campaign, it automatically adds leads to Salesforce from LinkedIn Lead Gen advertisements.
So when prospective customers fill out a form on your LinkedIn ad, that data is directly converted data as new Salesforce leads. This new feature is available in both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.

It is important to note that Salesforce allows you to add up to 500 leads from LinkedIn per day and if the number of leads extends beyond that Salesforce mails them to your default lead creator that you have designated in Setup.
So now how do you get started with this new source of leads?

1. From Setup, enter LinkedIn Lead Gen in the Quick Find box. Then click LinkedIn Account

2. Connect a LinkedIn account to your Salesforce org.

3. Salesforce connects the ad accounts associated with this member account to your org. All forms associated with these ad accounts generate leads in Salesforce. We recommend using a LinkedIn account that is associated with your company rather than an account that’s owned by a single employee.

4. Set up default values for leads to be gotten from LinkedIn. From Setup, enter LinkedIn Lead Gen in the Quick Find box. Then click Lead Gen Fields.
5. Under Set Lead Defaults, enter values for the Default Lead Creator, Record Type, and Lead Source for leads generated from LinkedIn.

Under Map Form Data, choose lead fields to receive the data from LinkedIn about the form each lead comes from. Under Map Lead Fields, choose lead fields to receive the data from LinkedIn about each lead.

6.LinkedIn Lead Gen forms let you ask up to 3 custom questions of your leads. For example, you might ask what their occupation is. When LinkedIn sends leads to Salesforce, it includes the text of each question and answer. Use a lead field to store each question and another field for the answer provided by the lead. That way you can report on questions and answers by filtering leads to questions asked, using the fields you choose for the questions.

The above information is taken from Salesforce Help documents.

RevShare is the buzzword at LeadsCon 2018!

Hey folks, we are coming to LeadsCon March of 2018, and we couldn’t be more excited to be in Las Vegas for it. We’ve been attending LeadsCon for three years now, and it never fails to enlighten us with inspiring path-breaking ideas.

ringless voicemail

Every LeadsCon has been a milestone for us, we have attended it to showcase serious developments in our cloud-based marketing suite, in the year 2017 of LeadsCon we showcased our newly made cookieless retargeting platform: Targeto for the first time.

We come to this LeadsCon this year with a new thought in a visceral sense rather than anything directly related to our products and services. To talk about a better way to do business in the current market economy.

With major online retailers like eBay, Amazon and ShareASale profusely using and growing with revenue sharing. We can rightly say that RevShare has revolutionized the digital market. Along with that major websites like Infobarrel, Hubpages, Squidoo practicing revenue sharing with writers, advertisers and designers has been an inspiring force for us and also a very articulated affirmation.

Rev share model transcends the current traditional relationship and gives people the value they deserve it is just and makes the most sense to any sane mind. Using revenue sharing as a business strategy can prove to be much more cost-effective and provide more leads as compared to other traditional marketing efforts as it brings along experts from varied fields under one umbrella. Rev share creates a stronger incentive for affiliates and associates to pour more business into the enterprise since everyone partakes in a portion of the revenue that is generated by the business.

As a cloud-based marketing suite provider, we are all in to have the best in their respective fields to come along and grow with us. We believe that revenue sharing with freelancers, data vendors, marketers, etc. can result in a mutually nurturing relationship that could not be possible otherwise, isn’t that what performance marketing all about? To keep the people driven and gain them profits and incentives just the kind they deserve.

Whether one owns stock in a company or works hard to make a brand of his product or service, revenue sharing is a benefit for all parties involved. Sharing revenue is essential to the growth of freelance bloggers, freelance graphic designers, professional ad agencies, independent sales organizations and leadgen companies and even the governments with interest in their nation’s stock exchange(s). In whatever form generated revenue is invested, paid out or shared, the profits are shared equally, just the way it should be. Profit is important in measuring success, and sharing that profit in the right way and at the right time helps to create and perpetuate a cycle of benefits for marketers and businesses alike, thus creating a win-win situation for all.

So that’s our point of view, and we think rev share is rightly the buzzword for this year’s LeadsCon and we would surely like to know what you think about it too, see you at LeadsCon.

How to be TCPA Compliant and still reach out to all your Audience!

ringless voicemail

Do you know that you need written consent of customers to send them commercial text messages or a call? In a nutshell anything that rings and notifies the person it is sent to comes under TCPA Compliance. But Ringless Voicemail is an information service that doesn’t ring so and is thus exempted from TCPA.

The CTIA’s Best Practices Guide for SMS Marketing and Communications, released on January 19, 2017, emphasizes more on TCPA compliance and consensually obtained data or opt-in data.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act was set to effect in 1991. Basically, TCPA compliance limits automatic telecalls, telemarketers, robocalls and commercial SMSes.

Simply put, the TCPA clearly states that businesses and/or organizations must receive express written consent from individuals prior to sending any SMS/text messages to them.

TCPA compliance aims towards maintaining the integrity of the privacy of the people. According to TCPA compliance it is not enough for businesses and organizations to market to people through SMS or call, even if the people marketed to are prospects, potential leads, or existing customers.

They need to have the written consent of the customer now and not just obtaining the phone number, you can read in detail about getting the written consent here under “Written Authorization”.

Not keeping your policies aligned with TCPA regulations can cost you heavy fines and class action lawsuits. Damages start at $500 and go up to $1,500 per recipient for each text message sent. To get more in depth knowledge on compliance guidelines you can visit here.

TCPA compliance is not as ominous as it seems to marketers. Marketing to this opt-in data can ramp up your marketing game to the fullest and help you generate better ROIs. Our state-of-the-art bulk sms text can help you achieve your direct marketing goals. You just upload your data, make sure you have written consent of all the users and we will shoot them to the respective addresses.

But what if you just don’t have the consent yet and want to reach out to your prospects and leads and customers without any hassle? I have just the right solution for you. You know what is better than texting? Listening to someone talk. That just adds on to the stimulus and also passes on the messages more powerfully.

Our Ringless Voicemail services are just the right tool for you. Ringless Voicemails come under Information Services and are thus FCC and TCPA complaint. Ringless voicemails, as the name suggests are no rings and only notifications, and thus they do not cause any inconvenience or annoyance to whomsoever they are sent to.

On a slightly different but relative note, Ringless Voicemail and Bulk Text Messaging services have been integrated natively with salesforce this year! You can thus enjoy TCPA compliant services and maximum outreach through both of our services with the least amount of hassle.

Make your Customer your Brand Spokesperson

It is an indelible feeling when our customers offer to recommend our products and services to other businesses.


It makes us feel that they believe our products are worthy of being referred to other people.

We are very glad for the inspiring response we have received from our customers and we encourage all businesses to achieve such a significant milestone in their tenure as well.

It is not very often that a company is able to convert its customers to loyal brand advocates. Your customers can be your brand ambassadors if you provide them with products or services that fulfill their needs to the optimum level.

Satisfaction with products and services is the key element that will lead your customers to be loyal towards your brand and keep them coming back for more.

In marketing terms, this simply means when the product or service that you offer exceeds the expectation of your customers, then they will be motivated to be associated with your brand even more. It is an excellent means to understand the needs of the customer in order to improve your business.

Customer satisfaction doesn’t just mean that your customers would be willing to make a repurchase. It could also lead to, your client recommending or refering your product or service to others who may have the same requirements.

Such an act of reselling or referral of your product by your customer exhibits the true nature of your brand’s performance and presence in the life of your customer.

For Brian Tracy, no matter what the title of your position is in the company, you will always be a salesperson for yourself and your company. He says, “-A referral to a new customer is worth ten times more than a cold call. And it is 16 times easier to sell a satisfied customer something new than it is to sell something to a brand new prospect.-”

Your customers could be willing to resell your product only if it meets their requirements. It is also important to ensure they have had a positive experience with the product or service, your brand’s reputation as a whole, its design, features and after-sales services.

Customer referrals are proved to be one of the most effective marketing and selling techniques to increase business and client base.

When consumers are willing to resell your products, they become an affiliate or spokesperson of your product or service.

Being an affiliate or referrer of your product or service usually entails some form of partnership or benefit for the customers who have recommended it to others in their business circle.

At LeadsRain too, we offer products and services that can cater to all your business requirements. Our clients have been so satisfied with our products that we have established a long-standing relationship with them as affiliate partners. In addition, we offer white label services for businesses who are in search of a platform and want to make it their own. You can use our products and services and rebrand them to match your style.

We also provide rewarding benefits and partnerships that make working with us a win-win situation. For more details on that, you can check our website here.

Which LeadsRain’s service is better for you to get heard–Ringless Voicemail or Voice Broadcasting?

Ringless Voicemail and Voice Broadcast Software are two of our esteemed services. Our customers rely highly on the efficiency of these marketing products and also the results they bring to their marketing endeavors. Our existing customers use them interchangeably in their marketing campaigns.

voice broadcasting

But with the new customers, there is often this query as to which service is the best for them to send their voice out to people around the world?

Here we discuss the key functionalities of both our services ringless voicemail and voice broadcasting.

Voice Broadcasting Software is our finest voice transmission system, it is hassle-free, easy to use and can execute complicated tasks that would otherwise require a call center set up. LeadsRain’s Voice Broadcast Software allows you to broadcast your recorded to voice to your desired customer database. You do not have any time duration limit as to how long do you want your recorded voice message to be, it is completely up to you. Though we suggest it to be wrapped up in a minute in general cases. As a marketer you need to have gotten hold of their attention by a minute, and if that’s not the case your customers are not going to listen to anything after that.

Voice broadcast service allows you to record the audio responses of your customers. You can thus create questionnaire with closed questions for your customers to get insights on their thoughts about your product, service, valuable feedbacks, or requirements, etc. For e.g., Would you consider recommending our services to your friends and family? Please answer in Yes or No.

Voice Broadcasting works best in Emergency situations and not as much as in commercial ventures. The reason being, voice broadcast notification comes with a ring. Also sending commercial updates, alerts to the people not opted or failing to provide a facility to unsubscribe can make this voice broadcasting activity of yours illegal. But on a positive note you can send thousands of voice messages to the people in during the state of emergency, on their phones and desktop screens, while ringless voicemail would do no good there.

LeadsRain’s Straight-to-Voicemail is classified as an information service. All information services are TCPA complaint. Ringless Voicemail as the name suggests doesn’t ring and causes no unwanted annoyance to the customers. This is best possible method to reach out people in whom lays your commercial interest. Anyone on the receiving end of the voicemail would not be disturbed by your message, nor would it sound to them as abrupt instead they would listen to it in the peace of the moment intending to pay attention, this increases the message deliverance drastically. Unlike Voice Broadcast, Ringless Voicemail cannot give you elaborate feedback answers through forms.


Well if the above text seems too long to read, we’ve itemised a list of key points that will help you compare the services and see for yourself which suits you better.

Ringless Voicemail or Straight-to-Voicemail
Doesn’t ring
TCPA FCC compliant
No annoyance
You can only record messages up to a minute
Limited CTA
Preferred for commercial use
5 cents per minute
Voice Broadcasting Software

It is to be kept in mind that although they both do the same thing of sending out your voice to the masses, they’re features make them quite distinct, allowing them to be of need in specific fields for specific industries.
