Okay - I think I am ready to take the plunge and try this out. I have a show on 2/06 and I am mailing out the invites tomorrow. I was thinking I would do a phonevite blast to all the guests telling them to keep their eyes on their mailboxes this week for their invitation...blah blah
I am at a loss for wording, though.
anyone have a script they use?

Re: Phonevite

Carolyn,

I don't use phonevites (I make the calls myself) but I make a phone call the day before the party -- it's a reminder for everyone who has forgotten and/or lost the invitation on their countertop. This gives me a chance to cut down the list a bit as I do not call those who RSVPd to the host that they can't attend.

Just my opinion that you'd be better off making that call after they've received their invite.

Re: Phonevite

I would second using it more for a reminder call then a heads up call.

One thing I do have to say: I used it at the end of last year for an open house I did. I had the call go out to close to 400 people, and my own number was included in the list. When I listened to the message later, all I got was the options at the end to press buttons to RSVP, I missed the whole message. I also had others tell me similar things, that they didn't get the whole message. All I can guess is that they system doesn't recognize a voicemail/machine, and doesn't re-start the message at the beep. Not knowing this, I had scheduled the call in the afternoon, thinking I'd get machines and leave quick messages. Only a very small percentage of my calls went through, and I only got one RSVP through the system.

That being said, my recommendation would be to schedule the call for later in the day, when more people are likely to be home and answer the phone.

Re: Phonevite

I'm still using Postcalls until my calls are all up. I send out a message the day before the party. I use my director's script
