Save yourself time and serve your clients more efficiently with this small change to your voicemail message.
- Change your voicemail to invite people to leave a message as long as they like, explaining what they want to talk with you about and how you can help them.
- Don’t procrastinate – change the message now. And if you lead a team, get your colleagues to change their voicemail messages, too.
- Tell your clients what to expect. Let them know sometimes when they call, you won’t be immediately available, but they can leave a message of any length with all the details about what they want on your voicemail system so you can get started on what they need as soon as possible and you won’t need to play phone tag.
