We’ve gone from 7 digit wire line phone numbers to 10 digit numbers that we can take with us. But now that everyone has an email address, what good is voicemail?
Thanks to Jangl, voicemail will live on. With this system, you can send a voicemail to anyone’s email address. It’s as simple as it sounds. You indicate the email you want to reach. Then, the system creates a phone number for that email. Then, you call that number and record your message that’s sent to the original email. So, where’s the angle? The system sells advertising – so when the recipient of the voice mail calls to receive it, he or she might receive a sponsored message during the “ring time” while the system bridges the phone conversation (very similar to a “ring-back” tone).
If you’re looking to reach a young audience, here’s an interesting option.
