How do Press-1 Campaigns work


You drop a voice message

Set up a voice broadcasting campaign to make outgoing calls to play and leave a message when they answer.


Contacts press-1 (or any digit)

After the automated call plays the message, people can push to talk (or any digit between 0-9) for the next step. You can include the details of what digit to press in the message.


Call is transferred to live agents

Based on how you’ve set up the campaign, the tool either transfers the call, collects a voicemail, or notes the response and hangs up.

Frequently asked questions

1. What is a press-1 campaign?

A press-1 campaign(push to talk) is a two-step interactive voice broadcast solution. In the first step, the tool dials all numbers in your contact list and plays a voice message when someone answers a call with options to choose from 1-9.

In the second step, the contacts press-1 (or any number between 0-9) to transfer the call to a live representative. Alternatively, you can ask them to press a digit to leave a recorded message, give a confirmation, answer a question, or just hang up.

Press-1 campaigns are an extension of voice broadcasting to help you get instant responses to your message.
