ART charges for successfully answered calls either by a live person or voicemail. A typical 30 second message that connects and plays your message costs around 7-8 cents. Upon scheduling a voice broadcast, your credit card will be debited for the estimated cost of your voice broadcast at the rate of $0.14 per minute. The estimated cost is calculated by multiplying the number of scheduled outbound calls by the length of your broadcast recording plus answer machine and live pickup greeting length. We do not charge for calls that result in a busy, no answer, disconnect or any other circumstance where a call may not be able to connect.
In addition to the actual cost of Voice Broadcast calls, ART charges an automatic monthly Concierge Service Fee to the credit or debit card on file for the Subscriber. This payment will be automatically charged on the same day of each month that the subscriber signed up on. This monthly fee covers the monitoring and maintenance of all subscriber calls as well as the daily scheduling ART undertakes to send “drip” campaigns such as Birthday wishes and important reminders for our customers who choose to take advantage of these campaigns. This fee also covers the time we make available to our subscribers who contact us seeking help with everything from script selection, custom script creation, marketing advice, recording their messages, or formatting and uploading phone lists. ART reserves the right to change the billing process at any time upon providing notice in writing or via email.
ART’s Voice Broadcast subscription is month to month and renews automatically on your billing date.

As an included feature of ART’s Concierge service, we employ an auto-scheduler, effective for all customers, using a special algorithm that takes into account the voice broadcast campaigns our clients have been regularly scheduling in the past and then automatically repeats those campaigns for the current year. This process frees up time and eliminates the risk of forgetting to schedule important calls.
