Toledo-based audio marketing agency BusinessVoice is pleased to announce a partnership with Molloy, LLC, a business development group in Union City, New Jersey.

"Once the Language of Commitment is rooted in your organization," says Molloy, "you can start to improve the effectiveness of your conversations with clients and prospects, and, more often than not, those conversations result in the desired action and commitment."

The site was designed and built by BusinessVoice designer Lisa Matthews. Linda Domme served as Project Manager. Visit the site at www.toledodiocese.org.

Toledo-based audio marketing agency BusinessVoice won a Merit Award at the 25th annual One Show Awards in New York City last month. The agency was one of only 12 winners in the newly established "Innovative Marketing" category.

This year, approximately 13,000 entries were submitted; 114 received one of the top awards of a Gold, Silver or Bronze "Pencil," while 408 received a Merit Award.

BusinessVoice is very pleased to announce that, in its fiscal year ending March 31, 2003, the agency enjoyed a 46% increase in sales bookings over the previous fiscal year.
Despite a lackluster economy, an increasing number of companies continued to see the benefits of the agency's audio marketing services, which include On Hold Messaging, Web Audio Messaging, and Point-of-Purchase Audio Marketing.
"An increase as substantial as 46% shows the real value and effectiveness of our services," said BusinessVoice Sales Manager Bruce Bryan. "Even when corporate budgets are shrinking, companies are able to justify the need for the type of audio marketing we provide."
Award-winning audio marketing agency BusinessVoice has added new members to its Client Services team.
Alison Johnson has joined the agency as Installation Coordinator. Her primary responsibilities include the coordination of equipment delivery and installation, as well as the remote delivery of On Hold Messaging productions via telephone lines to clients throughout the United States.
Cheryl Evans is the agency's newest Client Service Representative. In addition to assisting clients with their questions, she participates in both shipping and order fulfillment, while providing proactive client assistance through the BusinessVoice CASSE program and post-install review process.
In order to better serve clients and local advertising agencies, BusinessVoice has updated its audio production facilities.
"We've always been on the cutting edge of On Hold Messaging production," said BusinessVoice engineer Mike Cleveland, "but with this new equipment, we can now provide the highest quality voiceover recording for any type of project. This new gear makes us as good as any studio in the country."
"This is an exciting update for our clients and potential clients," said Jerry Brown, BusinessVoice president. "It allows us to provide them with an even higher quality audio product at a very competitive rate. We're hoping area agencies that might normally take their audio work out of town will now come to us."
Additions to the audio marketing agency's studios include a new Neumann U-87 microphone, an Avalon Vacuum Tube EQ/Preamp, a CalRec EQ/Preamp and a Universal Audio1176 Limiting Amplifier.

The staff of BusinessVoice celebrated the holidays early this year by hosting an open house on December 10, 2002. The event was designed to give the agency's clients and business partners, as well as area advertising and marketing firms, a chance to tour the BusinessVoice studios and offices.

The event featured the performance and recording of live music in one of the agency's studios.
"It's always great to have the chance to re-connect face-to-face with some of the people we do business with, especially during the holiday season," said agency President Jerry Brown.
