There are plenty of legitimate reasons people choose to record their calls, whether it’s for “training and quality purposes” at work or as a way to save information, recording phone calls is more common than you may think.
But, how do you record a phone call? Using a call recording app such as SpoofCard, is an easy and safe way to record and save your calls. You simply enter the number you are calling, and then enter the caller ID number to display, click “record” and voila!
Now that you know how to record a call, here are three common reasons for call recording:
To Keep People Honest and Accountable
Everyone has probably been involved in a case of “he said, she said” at some point in their lives. Whether it’s a business deal or a custody battle, telling people you are recording the call will promote honest and transparent communication.
To Reference at a Later Date
Our brains are inundated with information all day, every day. Sometimes it’s hard to even remember what you had for dinner the night before. Important phone calls happen every day, whether for work or in your personal life, and having the ability to go back and reference them is not only a great option to have, but it also eliminates the need for follow-up calls.
For Personal Growth
Have you ever listened to yourself speak and absolutely cringed at every word? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. However, we aren’t suggesting you listen back so you can criticize your voice but more importantly, so you can understand how you may (or may not be) perceived on the other end. Whether it’s a work related call or a personal call, listening to yourself is a great way to determine what you may need to work on when communicating with others (colleagues, customers, potential customers, friends, family members, etc.).
All in all, recording your phone calls is an efficient and effective way to hold people accountable, save important information, and work on your communication skills.
