How to record your own greetings (or have someone do it for you)

Crystal Field Updated by Crystal Field

Doing It Yourself

Recording your own greeting is easy and doesn't require any custom software. It's all available online. We recommend Online Voice Recorder, which allows you to record your greetings, trim the start and end points, and then download them as MP3s. You can then send those MP3s to us for your after-hours messages.

To make sure your greetings sound great, please take a look at our 5 Tips for a Perfect Voicemail Greeting.

Once you have the MP3, please follow the steps here to upload it to your online dashboard.
