Effective communication at Christmas

One quick Google for Christmas inspiration and it’s clear to see there’s no shortage of heart-warming festive news, giving us the warm fuzzies here at iNarrator HQ. Something that stands out to us is how much people strive to make their Christmas the most memorable one yet, full of family traditions both old and new.

Another thing that is important around this time of year is keeping in touch and catching up with loved ones. For little one’s there’s no one more important to speak to than Santa, so the opportunity to see the Big Man in his grotto is one not to be missed. This week a video was posted on the internet of a three year old sat on Santa’s lap having a conversation in sign language because she has difficulty speaking. Our hearts grew three sizes that day after watching the real life Miracle on 34th Street scene. It made us think about the importance of communication in all forms, speaking, writing, messages and even signing.

 

We've also been embracing the nostalgia of old Christmas tales, from ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas to The Snowman, but there’s nothing wrong with mixing it up and creating a new classic we've found out this week. The same goes for your on hold messages, New Year, New Audio? Perhaps you've got some exciting new products for 2016 or are expanding, why not give your on hold marketing a refresh for the start of the New Year?

We've had Christmas tunes blasting since late November and really understand the need for your seasonal on hold messages to be as catchy (just like our On Hold Song) and informative, communicating to your callers when you’re open around the festive season and if you've got any great deals for them! Don’t lose out on business just because you've not updated, give alternative contact information and clear opening hours so you can start business in January with a bang!

Since ‘tis the season of good will we wanted to let you know that we've chosen a brilliant charity to support this year and with your help we can achieve our aim of to buy as many driving experiences as possible! So for or every Christmas Package purchased we’ll donate £10 to Speed of Sight. The charity was set up by Mike Newman, the fastest blind man on the planet and runs driving experience days for people with disabilities. There’s loads of great videos on their website www.speedofsight.org
