In order to create ringless voicemail campaigns, or send individual ringless voicemails to your contacts, you will first need to record and upload a voicemail recording to your Ringless Voicemail recordings library found in the left hand navigation.
This guide shows you how you can record your voicemails in Microsoft Windows 10 or on a Mac computer, and then upload those recordings into your library.
What is the RVM Recordings library? #
The RVM Recordings library is the place where you will need to upload all of your voicemail recordings, before you can use them in your campaigns, or send them to individual contacts.
What to Record? #
Your campaign objectives will determine the content of your voicemail recordings, however very much as with text messages, you should keep it simple, and keep them short.
You have only a few seconds to capture someone’s attention, so don’t create a long recording with your life story. Every sentence needs to be meaningful.
Treat these recordings as though you were leaving a regular voicemail message.
You just want to let them know your name, what problem you solve, and what action you want them to perform.
Don’t go over 30 seconds, and the action should always to be to get them to call you back.
Example Recordings #
Here are 3 sample recordings that you might create for a 3 voicemail absentee owner RVM campaign sent to leads in a particular zip code.
38104 Absentee Owners VM 1

Once you select the right file, a green progress bar will appear below the “Choose File” button to show you the progress of the file being uploaded into the system.
Once the upload has completed, the “SAVE RECORDING” button will activate, turning from gray to blue.
Please do not leave this page until the file has been uploaded and you have clicked the “SAVE RECORDING” button.
Add Description #
Before clicking the save button, you should add a description to your recording.
The description will be used when you select the recording to send, so you should keep it both short, and descriptive.
For example if you will be sending a campaign of recordings to absentee owners in the 38104 zip code then you would add a description such as:
38104 Absentee VM 1
Save the Recording #
Now that you have uploaded the file and added a description you will need to click the “SAVE RECORDING” button to add it to your recordings library.
Now you can use your voicemail recording in a campaign, or send it individually to a specific contact.
