Is leaving a voicemail really worth it? Is leaving a voicemail really worth it? Is Leaving a Voicemail Really Worth it?
Yes and no. It depends on who you're leaving it to and why. If someone called you and you missed them, leaving a voicemail can almost guarantee a call back because they wanted to reach you in the first place.
But what about someone you've never talked to?
Before leaving you with the punchline, it's REALLLY important to understand the purpose of a voicemail. It's NOT to get the person to make a purchase decision, it's to get the person to call you back, that's it.
Now for the punchline...
I think you should limit the number of voicemails, but if you were to leave one, here's what you should do:
"Hey [insert name], it's [insert your first name and the company you're with]
I saw that you [insert observation, i.e. signed up, downloaded, etc] and....
*slight pause as if you just had an idea*...
I think I may have something that may help, call me back when you get this, [insert #]."
Then... send them an email with the subject line "Voicemail"
