About us

Who we are

Audible Business has been serving business with a variety of audio marketing services since 1994. We started out focused primarily on on-hold messaging services, but increasingly clients are asking us to provide other audio production services like after-hours greetings, auto-attendant, voice mail prompts, and web audio.

Where we are

From our location in East Lansing, Michigan, home of the Michigan State University Spartans, we serve clients throughout the United States. Today's audio messaging technologies make location less important. Using the latest remote-load systems, we can deliver your audio marketing messages anywhere in the world in a matter of minutes.

Who we serve

Our clients are very diverse. We serve large national networks and small single offices. Our systems are connected to huge PBX phone systems and 2-line phones. Client industries range from financial services to fabrication, from medicine to mechanics, and from production to point-of-sale.

Our History

It all began in the summer of 1994, when our founder, Hans Schmid was doing a business strategy study while studying for his MBA. Instead of studying the community bank where he then worked, Hans chose to study a on-hold messaging service-provider. The strategy Hans recommended was to put all possible energies into growing the business immediately. (In 1994, only 3% of businesses were estimated to be using on-hold messaging marketing.)

Hans was so convinced that this was a great business opportunity that he “retired” from his 10 year accounting career to start his own on-hold messaging company. Audible Business began as a dealership within a larger audio marketing organization. In 1995, just one year after start-up. We were proud to be recognized as the fastest growing dealership in the 7-year history of the organization.

In August of 2001, Audible Business become an independent service provider. This change provided Audible Business greater access to the latest audio marketing technologies and services, and enabled us to better serve our clients evolving needs.

The Future

The future is yet to be written. We look forward to serving our clients so their future are brighter because of our contribution.
