SpeakPipe – Get Voicemails From Your Readers

Ever wonder what visitors, readers, or customers really think of your business website? With SpeakPipe you can find out right away. The web-application lets people create voicemail widgets that online visitors can use to leave voice messages without ever picking up a phone or typing out a message.

Start finding out what the people who visit your professional website really think by signing up for SpeakPipe and installing the widget on your site. To install the widget, click on the name of the platform you use – either WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, or Joomla – and follow the customized instructions that SpeakPipe provides. Once you’ve pasted the SpeakPipe code into your site, you should see a button that says “Send Voicemail” on the far right side of your homepage. Customers and readers who visit your site will see this button, too, and they can use it to leave messages with all types of feedback and comments. SpeakPipe stores this feedback in your Inbox, where you can play, download, or delete voicemails at any time.

Any customer with a microphone built into his or her computer can leave messages with SpeakPipe, even without a headset or a telephone device. Website visitors just need to click on the “Send Voicemail” button, give SpeakPipe access to their microphone, and hit “Start Recording.” Messages aren’t actually sent until a visitor clicks “Send,” which gives people time to listen to their messages and make changes if they wish.
