One of the most indispensable telemarketing services, the Press 1 Campaign suits all businesses that need to contact a target list. Press-1 Campaign also known as Interactive voice broadcasting. Simple to set up, and simple to run. Press-1 Campaign calls a contact number from the list, On recipient pick-up, the ICTBroadcast software plays a recorded message. If the contact then wishes to speak with a live Agent, he or she can press key "1" to progress the call.

If you're going for a voice broadcasting campaign you'll need to decide whether your message will be just an announcement or if you want to give your prospects the ability to press 1 on their phone to be connected with a live agent of your company.
