Your Voicemail Message
When was the last time you listened to your cell phone’s out-going voicemail message? (It’s the greeting your callers hear before they leave you a message).
If it’s been a while, you might wish to update it. Times have changed.
Here are a few suggestions:
Make it Personal
Callers would probably prefer to hear your voice rather than a computer-generated “default” voice.
Make it Short
We all know what to do after the beep; no need to explain it.
Make it Easy
You don’t need to ask your callers to leave a number or the time that they called; cell phones record this information automatically.
Make it Friendly
Think about the recordings you hear when you make a call. Yours should be more like the ones you like and less like the ones you don’t.
