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.

Beep!
