Leaving Effective Voicemails

Have you ever received a long winded voicemail from someone? The reality is that it’s harder and more time consuming to check voicemail than it is to check an email, and a tedious voicemail won’t be appreciated.

So, the next time you leave a voicemail try these tips:

  • Make it short and to the point
  • Talk in bullet form
  • Don’t give them info they don’t really need.

Or, simply state the issue quickly (and make it compelling) and ask them to call you back.

You can also tell them you are sending a follow-up email with more details and to reply to you when they receive it.
