Why Every PR Pro Should Use Google Voice

In this video I discuss how public relations and communications professionals can use Google Voice to better their relationships with the media. Not only is it a powerful tool, but it’s absolutely FREE.

Update

  1. yes! because of this vid I’m going to try it — what appeals to me most is getting the transcription of a message when I can’t check VM.

  2. Thanks! That’s really helpful – I’ll be giving it a try.

    I’m going to give it a shot. It sounds fantastic!

    We need to have a service that can go text to voice as well. If I am texting in a meeting, it would be great to communicate with someone who is driving, who can’t text back. Then they can reply via voice, and I can read the message via text. My ideal service would convert text to voice AND voice to text…both ways.

    • Would that mean that people would have to start texting actual words? I wonder how the text to voice feature would read things like, “lol,” “g2g,” and “brb.”

      I am planning on giving Google Voice a try later today.

      Thanks for the article Seth!

      Good news is I think there is a service out there for you. Drive Safely (http://www.drivesafe.ly/) is an app, compatible with most smartphones, that claims to do just that. I haven’t tried it yet myself, but sounds like it’s worth checking out.

        Or if you have an iPhone (not sure if there is a BB version or not?) try Vlingo. You can not only text/take notes, you can also update your SM platforms through it. I’ve used it for Twitter and FB.

    Thanks for all the great feedback! If you do decide to give Google Voice a try, please don’t hesitate to come back and give me your review. Might not be perfect for everyone, but I think it’s got some real value for communications professionals.

  6. Google Voice is great!!! Of course, I’d have to figure out a way to clandestinely get Google Voice installed on my work computer…
