People have long stated that laughter is the best medicine. Even with the countless prescriptions available on the market, laughter holds its own amongst a sea of laboratory-produced capsules claiming to cure everything in the human body. It turns out, laughing reduces stress, pain, increases blood flow, and increases your body’s resistance to disease. In short, every time you make someone reveal their pearly whites by cracking a smile, you’re laying the foundation for a lifelong relationship simply by decreasing their stress and making them feel better than they did 5 minutes ago. Adding some humor to your on-hold message also makes it more memorable. These are some of the most effective ways to get your audience laughing with your on-hold message while remaining focused on the bottom line.
