What are the different types of robocall pricing?

In general, there are 3 pricing strategies.

  1. Pay per dial
  2. Pay per transfer
  3. Pay per minute

Pay per dial

This one is the simplest to understand. You simply pay for each phone number dialed. A dialed phone number is an attempt to connect.

Typically pay per dial pricing is very low like 5 cents per dial or even lower like 1 cent per dial.

There's an additional factor that determines the price and that's the length of your recording.

Another point is that an average phone list will have about 30% no answers or busy phone numbers. With pay-per-dial pricing, you're also paying for those dials.

Pay per transfer

This type of pricing is used when doing a voice broadcasting press 1 campaign.

A 'transfer' is when a person answers their phone and presses the 1 digit on their keypad. Almost instantly this person is transferred to a phone number to get more information about the offer.

By the way, if you don't know the company calling you, you should not transfer to this company.

Pay per minute

This pricing is one that closely resembles how carriers charge their customers. We're all used to paying per minute.

An essential part of the pay per minute pricing model is billing increments

Needless to say, not all minute rates are the same.

Below are 3 common billing increments.

  • 60/60
  • 30/30
  • 6/6

A higher minimum and increment leads to a higher total cost.

Sigma Voice charges customers on a per minute basis using 6/6 billing increments. We believe this is the fairest and straight forward pricing model.
