Kevin Willett explains how you could be missing out on important messages.
I have been making some calls this morning to promote our upcoming networking events and I am surprised by how many people don’t have a missed call message on their voicemail. Their message consists of them or a computer voice repeating the phone number. “You have reached 978…..”. There is no name, no business name, just the number.
Now maybe it is just me, but that always freezes me. I think to myself, is this person still in business? Did I dial the correct number? Often when this happens I simply hang up rather than risk leaving a message for the wrong person. Are your potential clients hanging up on you because they feel the same way I do? Why risk it? Take a few minutes today to record a proper voicemail message. But before you do, give some thought to the message. Have you ever left a message for someone and their voice mail message sounded like you were bothering them? Please make sure your message is upbeat and easy to understand. Don’t miss out on any more voicemails.
