Making Web Audio From Your On Hold Audio

Your Easy On Hold Account Manager will arrange for you to download your custom on hold audio. We will provide files in the .mp3 format, but other audio formats are available.

We can also edit your audio to various lengths. At times we are asked to edit new music or remove background music. It’s OK to get creative.

Getting the web audio on your site can be tricky, and best left to your webmaster or programmer. However, if you have a WordPress site, there are a few ways to add audio.

Amateurs can hurt traffic to the site by making colossal mistakes such as, embedding the audio so that it plays as soon as the page is loaded. Or, providing no pause or stop button. These web audio mistakes can cost you visitors.

There are several web audio players that may help you embed your voiced message on hold recordings onto your website.

Be sure that all of the audio you use on your website is properly licensed for use there. Music copyrights can especially be quite specific in whether website performances are allowed. Contact us about web audio licensing  or call 888-798-4653.
