HOW TO GIVE VOICE TO YOUR GLOBAL CUSTOMERS AND TRIBE [TOOL REVIEW]

Empower your customers, podcast listeners, blog readers or fans to send you voice messages right from an Internet browser without any phone calls…for free!
 SpeakPipe
 
SpeakPipe is a new tool I have begun using as a way for my podcast listeners to submit questions, topics or just to say hey! Users visit my SpeakPipe page, click "Start Recording", enable their microphone and then record their message by talking directly to their computer or mobile device. 
Give it a whirl! Click here…and tell me your 2014 Super Bowl prediction.
 
Overall I give this tool a 4.5 out of 5!
Mobile: It appears the service is only available on iOS.
Cost: Ranges from Free to $39/month. 
 
Service Benefits
  • Customize what displays on your SpeakPipe page.
  • Email alerts when new voice messages are received.
  • Free service for all of your users from around the world. 
  • Reply to voice messages with your own voice message and deliver via email.
  • Easy way to connect with users via voice without giving out your phone number.
  • All messages and data are stored on SpeakPipe's website.
  • With an active SpeakPipe account, the homepage displays the inbox of all of your messages. Shows who sent the message, when it was sent and provides you the option of bookmarking the message, downloading it or deleting it.
 
How To Use
  1. Sign-up by clicking here. (This is an affiliate link so thank you in advance if you sign-up. I only promote services I personally use and this service really does rock!)
  2. Provide your SpeakPipe page link to users.
SpeakPipe can also be embedded in your Wordpress blog or website with this free plugin Customize the location and look of a SpeakPipe button on your website that users can click and record a voice message directly on your website.  I choose not to use this feature so that I wouldn't confuse my visitors with 2 contact buttons. I tried to work with SpeakPipe's support team (very helpful by the way) to customize the button further but had no luck placing the button where I needed it. More experienced coders would have no problem with this.
 
Ways To Use
  • Business Owner: Have satisfied customers provide a testimonial that you can feature on your website.
  • Customer Service: Have customers submit their questions or issues regarding your product or service.
  • Sales: Have sales teams call in with their result read outs.
  • Radio: Have fans submit their name and email for a contest or drawing.
  • Blog: Have readers submit comments, questions or topics.
  • Podcast: Have listeners submit questions or topics. (I have begun doing this and will feature listeners calls on future podcasts. Click here to leave me a voice message.)
 
Voicemails aren't so evil when you use SpeakPipe. I hope you can leverage this tool as your next generation catalyst.
