- Killer voicemail tactics. If you want to be heard, you want to leave well thought-out, articulate, and detailed voicemail messages. This is the best way to communicate, as you aren’t interrupting someone’s day, and they can meet with you (on the phone) on their terms. A well-crafted voicemail is a matter of showing respect.
- Motivate them to call you back. State your name and your company name. Offer your phone number in writing speed, and state the purpose of your call. Give some forethought to this. How will it impact the person listening? Get to the point. Let them know why they should listen to you. Think of three value points that sum up why they should return your call.
- Wrapping up your voicemail. Repeat your name, and repeat your phone number in writing speed. You might tell them when you will call back if you don’t hear from them. Offer them options, and ask them to have their assistant (use their assistant’s name if you know it) let you know if there is a better time.
