- Keep it short and sweet.
It’s important to remember that most people don’t have the time or the patience to listen to long voicemails, so keep your message short and to the point. It’s also important to make sure that your message is easily understandable and not too cluttered with jargon.
- Introduce yourself.
When leaving a voicemail, make sure to introduce yourself and let the recipient know why you’re calling. This will help them to remember who you are and why they should return your call.
- State your purpose.
Let the recipient know why you’re calling and why it’s important. This will help them to recall your message and take action.
- Provide contact information.
Make sure to provide your contact information so the recipient can get back to you.
- Follow up.
Leave a message that encourages the recipient to call you back. Make sure to remind them of the benefits of speaking with you and the potential for a successful conversation.
If they don’t call you back? Call again! Remember, this voicemail is just another touch point in a long series of contacts you are going to have with this prospect.
