Ringless voicemail is a method of leaving voicemail messages without the phone ever ringing. It utilizes an automated system that connects directly to the voicemail carrier, skipping the wireless phone provider entirely. This circumvents the phone ringing system, prevents the recipient from getting charged for the call, and allows the recipient to listen at their convenience.
Ringless voicemail is an automated system. It allows businesses to deliver a 20-90 second message to new or existing leads without utilizing salespeople, customer service reps, auto-dialers, or call centers.
This can be a simple and effective way to get noticed by new prospects, simplify the delivery of information to current leads or clients, or to reach existing contacts in a non-intrusive way.
Voicemails have a 92% open rate, the highest open rate in the outbound marketing industry. It also sees a higher response rate than traditional advertising techniques, especially when the message includes a compelling call to action.
Ringless voicemail marketing is extremely affordable, usually starting at less than $0.02 per message. Users typically purchase a package of credits and are only ever charged for successfully delivered messages.
Ringless voicemail is considered a non-disruptive form of marketing. The receiver is able to listen to the voicemail message on his or her own time. This means you’re not battling distractions or other advertisers for their undivided attention.
Auto-dialers or traditional outbound call campaigns require a salesperson or customer service agent at-the-ready when the call connects. Ringless voicemail allows you to deliver your message in a fraction of the time and without extensive labor.
Send your voicemail message to hundreds or thousands of contacts with just the press of a button. When you use Just Deliver It’s simple online dashboard, you can upload your list, record your message, and send your first campaign in 10 minutes or less.

The success of your ringless voicemail campaign relies on the quality of your voicemail message. Taking the time to refine your message and recording a smooth-flowing sound bite can have a huge impact in the success of your campaign.
Before recording, consider these 9 (simple) tips for making your voicemail message a success!
What is the purpose of your voicemail message?
Once you know the purpose of your voicemail message, decide exactly what you want your contact to do when they hear the message.
Do you want them to give you a call back when they have a few minutes to talk? Visit your website to download your new e-book? Vote yes on a proposition at the voting polls?
Define your call-to-action, make it clear and simple, and write it down.
What does your customer need to hear to compel them to complete your call to action? This will be different for each message depending on your goal.
Put yourself in your contact’s shoes. What snippet of information would you need to hear to perform the call-to-action the voicemail gives if you were them?
You have the gift of your contacts’ undivided attention as they listen to your voicemail. Keep them engaged and interested by keeping your voicemail short and sweet.
The length of your message depends on your goals and your target market, however, we’ve noticed a sweet spot in listen and response rates for messages that are 40-50 seconds long.
You don’t necessarily need to write a ringless voicemail message script—especially since that can come off as insincere or fake— but it can be helpful to write down the main bullet points of your message and keep them in front of you as you record.
You don’t want to sound over-rehearsed, but you don’t want to sound frazzled either. Practice your pitch a few times to make sure there aren’t any words or phrases that cause you to stumble, “um,” or “er.”
Nothing is more frustrating than listening to a voicemail but not being able to understand half the words. Speak clearly and confidently, and don’t mumble.
Many mobile devices also transcribe voicemail messages in the voicemail inbox. Speaking clearly can help ensure a more accurate transcription for your recipients.
Just Deliver It’s ringless voicemail recording software allows you to play back your message and re-record as many times as you’d like. Look for the sweet spot between “smooth and professional” and “over-rehearsed.” Remember, you want your voicemail to come off as genuine and friendly, not robotic or bored.
It sounds silly, but smiling while you record your voicemail message really does come across to the listener!
Voicemail marketing can be effective as a stand-alone effort, but it can be even more successful when paired with follow-up messages or other supporting contact methods.
The success of your ringless voicemail campaign is based on two factors: the quality of your message and the quality of your list. Even the best-written voicemail message in the world won’t get any responses if you’re sending to low-quality, unqualified, or disinterested leads.
While the Just Deliver It Ringless Voicemail System is capable of sending hundreds of thousands of voicemails at a time, consider how many responses you can handle at a time. Most ringless voicemail marketing campaigns begin receiving call-backs in as little as 2-3 hours (sometimes sooner). If you’re not sure what your response rate and time will look like, consider sending a small test batch first to guage response rate.
