"Scott - I worked in Chicago radio for years and your voice is AMAZING! And you can write! Bravo. I appreciate your talent."
Adina Smith / Marketing Director - Indian Wells, CA
“My Judge's Choice Award was the video entitled 'Creative Inspiration,' because it's one thing to land just one joke, but to be able to stretch this joke over the entire time of a minute and 42 seconds is a pretty huge feat. And this video does that brilliantly. Really strong stream of consciousness copywriting. I loved how it was something that you don't see every day. It's always fun to see work that stretches your mind and makes you laugh a little bit."
Jennifer Hohn / Articulation - Denver, CO
"Love it! Great video. We need more creative work like this today!"
Kerrigan Quicker / Wheeler Financial - Toledo, OH
"Hi, Scott - Thank you so much for all this great copy. I think it's really creative. I would've never even thought of some of these ideas. They were really fun and unique. Great balance."
Desiree Grosman / D&F Plumbing - Portland, OR
"That was hysterical! I've got tears in my eyes I was laughing so much. The voices [Amy and Scott] were spot on. They were so serious about what they were saying, which made it even funnier. I called my family to play it for them over the phone!" (Listen to this Judge's Choice Award winner here.)
2023 MARCE Awards Judge
“Scott Greggory is a major talent both behind the mic and behind the computer keyboard. As an announcer he has the range to be friendly, authoritative or funny, all with a great vocal tone. As a writer, he's one of the funniest guys I know. He can be absurdly silly or display dry wit. PLUS, he has the rare skills to translate the matching style to his vocal delivery. Scott makes me laugh out loud. I love working with him.”
Stan Massey / Transcend Strategy Group - Toledo, OH
"The VO was great. Client loved it! Thanks, Amy. You did a great job!"
Angie Coakley / Hanson Inc. - Toledo, OH

Mark Reiter / Level 2 Audio - Perrysburg, OH
"Congratulations on Best of Show! I was in charge of the Fifth District ADDY Awards judging and was there when we played your On Hold Messaging. Very creative. I remember the judges commenting that it was a great use of an underutilized medium. Funny (and effective) stuff. Also goes to show that you don't need to go to the big city to get great creative work."
John McCafferty / McCafferty Advertising - Louisville, KY
"I just wanted to tell you that I stumbled onto your website for Humor On Hold, and I listened to every recording. Your work is hilarious and it brightened my day. And who doesn't want a compliment from a random stranger on the Internet? So, thanks."
Alissa H. / Copywriter - Memphis, TN
"This is laugh-a-second work! As a voiceover artist, I was combing YouTube for inspiration and your video flooded my mind with creative ideas. Huge thanks for posting this."
Mark G. / Voice Talent
"[Scott] is just the most memorable person when it comes to creating content. Why make something that people are going to forget in five minutes? Let's create something that's going to outlive us. Let's create something that people are going to remember eight years later that you wrote on a birthday card. That's Scott Greggory."
Michael Seay / MadAveGroup - Toledo, OH

Dan Schroeder / Hanson Inc. - Toledo, OH
"Scott, I just wanted to send you a whole-hearted 'thanks' for your work on my production! This campaign really needed something to spark the potential in the video.

Dave Shelton / Dave Shelton Audio Productions - Waterford, MI

Joanna Hunter / Kingston - Toledo, OH
"Messages-on-hold are often one of the most painful of customer ordeals. But when done right by Scott Greggory and crew with actual humor, it takes a customer hassle and elevates it to a customer experience you tell others about. Click through to check out a couple samples. They're addictive, and brilliant marketing."
Bill Cusick / CX Expert & Author of All Customers Are Irrational - Chicago, IL
"Scott understands the difference between fantasy and reality in both creative and in content. He doesn't present these false ideas that will never resonate with the consumer. It's really refreshing to work with somebody who has a sense of what's really going on in the marketplace."
Chris Mitsos / Mountain View Tire and Auto Service - Los Angeles, CA
"What a fantastic corporate video. Taking something that could potentially be stale to listen to and making it fun - not to mention memorable - is genius. Nicely done."
Amy Jeffries / Voice Talent - Moline, IL
"Scott is certainly not afraid to push the envelope. He's pushed us to really get outside the box."

"Hey, Scott - You do some great work. I’m extremely impressed by what’s come from your client's [now archived] social media and web pages. Before I leave my position here I’m going to recommend the department consider a full website revamp in the future. I would definitely encourage you to reach out to my successor when one is named. I really appreciate your work!"
Tyler Dotson / Former Director of Economic Development - Blissfield, MI
"That was the funniest start to a Tuesday I have had in a long time. Great work!"
Dave Perry / 3Sixty Interactive - Flint, MI
"Love the Amazing Space concept. On the surface it seems like normal, everyday on hold messaging, but what the voiceover is saying is VERY different. Great idea!”
Dave Savage / Judge, On Hold Messaging Association's MARCE Awards
"Scott and Amy are fabulous. They always hit the nail right on the head. I had Scott do a voiceover for an e-learning module for Merck Europe. It was somewhat confusing as written, but Scott nailed it on the first try, correcting all the broken sentences. He did it overnight and delivered a perfect rendition, despite the script being written by a non-native, English-speaking German designer. It was truly amazing. Scott always comes through like this."
Bill Hinsch / Bill-Art.com - Toledo, OH
"Oh my God! You guys are great! You took my idea and made it sound even better than I imagined. Thanks!”
Joe Kelly / WPUR 107.3 - Atlantic City, NJ

Eric Eggly / Photographer - Toledo, OH
“We get people who call all the time and WANT to be put on hold. Vendors and customers call us and just laugh. We actually changed our phone set-up to feature the On Hold Marketing. The feedback has been absolutely fantastic. I keep thinking [the productions] can’t get better, but this one topped them all. I think it’s just phenomenal. I really mean this - it’s truly been enjoyable working with you. I’m so thankful that you’re willing to do this kind of stuff for us. I appreciate what you do for us. Great job, Scott.”
Chris Hamann / Lakeland Auto and Marine - Port Clinton, OH
"Hi, Scott - I have absolutely loved reading your blog over the years and your always-upbeat, insightful messages. I have learned so much from your content and your writing style."
Ellen Pizza / Commerce Paper - Toledo, OH
"The On Hold Marketing scripts Scott creates are not only funny, but also informative. (Listen here.) They provide valuable information about specific aspects of my operation that some may not be aware of. In the 15+ years I’ve been in business, this is by far the best marketing money I have spent."
Steve Eaton / Med-Line Express Services - Pompano Beach, FL
"Hilarious! I love it. What a fun and creative way to start a conversation." (Watch the video.)

Sharon Goldner / Parker Steel - Toledo, OH
“When I would be at conventions, I’d tell people about the kind of On Hold Messaging we have. Then, when I was out in Vegas one time, I called back to the office and had myself put on hold so the people at the convention could hear it. And they were laughing because it’s just so funny. Your service is very valuable to us.”
Dan Kazmierczak / Binkelman Corporation - Bowling Green, OH
