About Us

They say that around 10,000 hours of practice can make you a master of pretty much anything. If that’s true, after over 15 years (that’s a whopping 131,040 hours) we’ve become masters of on-hold marketing at least 13 times over! Sold on Hold Phone Messaging has been providing clients in Canada and the USA with professional on-hold music and on-hold message solutions since 1996. Our main studio houses our on-hold audio production suite, professional writers, customer service teams and sound engineers. It’s a unique setup that ensures all of the on-hold productions that leave our facility have been given the greatest attention to detail. We’re a professional, experienced company that  specialized in providing on-hold productions to clients across various industries.

Sold on Hold’s President and Founder, Dave Araki, is very familiar with both phone marketing and audio production. In 1991 he founded Hotlines Communications, which evolved into the Talking Yellow Pages and phone based advertising networks that netted over 9 million calls a year!  His radio background as a professional announcer was also helpful when Sold on Hold was established in 1996.  Since then, Sold on Hold has positioned itself as a premiere provider of on-hold marketing – our commitment to excellence and industry expertise earning us thousands of customers in the process.

With experience and a proven track record – we’re industry leaders in on-hold marketing.
