Audingo and Mix 94.7 Make Holidays More Magical for Austin-Area Kids with Personalized Phone Calls from Santa
Voice and video messaging innovator Audingo enables personalities and organizations to develop deeper connections with supporters
AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 11, 2012
AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Austin-area children can now receive a free, individualized phone call and special message from Santa, radio station KAMX-FM Mix 94.7 and audio-visual social media innovator Audingo today announced. Audingo, creator of an innovative voice and video mobile messaging platform, enables personalities and organizations to develop deeper connections with supporters through personalized phone calls, texts and emails.
With as many different names and as many times as desired through Christmas Eve, Mix 94.7 listeners can now text a child's name – one at a time – to 512-MIX-0054. Audingo sends a text message back to the mobile device from which the text message was received saying Santa Claus has "one more gift to wrap" but will be calling soon. Santa rings the phone number within 10 minutes and addresses the recipient by name with a special message, such as a report on happenings at the North Pole or words of wisdom to ensure Santa and his reindeer make a stop at the child's home on Christmas Eve. Santa's voice also promotes Mix 94.7 radio personalities JB and Sandy's annual "Bikes for Kids," a benefit for children around Central Texas.
Audingo's interactive platform even allows children to reply to Santa with a voice message using Audingo's TalkBack feature to continue the conversation. These TalkBack replies from kids around Austin are posted on Mix 94.7's website. Visit http://www.mix947.com/pages/14967108.php to listen to the (adorable) messages.
"Nothing compares to sharing holiday magic with your kids, and seeing their faces when they – out of all the children in the world – get an interactive phone call from Santa takes it to the next level," said Audingo Founder and CEO Michael Boukadakis, who is also a voice processing and IVR expert. "Hearing Santa's voice, or the voice of any celebrity, is so much more powerful than words on a page or text on a screen, like with most social media platforms."
