Leaving effective voice mails for cold calling

Leaving effective voice mails for cold calling

The key to successful voicemails are to be brief-get to the point of the message. I was always told brevity is the key to success.


What should you leave in a voicemail message?

1.       Company name

2.       Contact name

3.       Phone number

4.       Reason for the call


Use your voicemail message as an opportunity for marketing. Take time to prepare messages that will entice the recipient and will encourage a return call. What kind of messages can you leave for your prospects?

Here are a few sample voicemails:
