Call Me Back!

Editor’s note: Gary Stauble’s “2-Minute Coaching” gives you quick, easy-to-implement ideas on various subjects.

Question: What voicemail message can I leave that will yield a high number of returned calls?

My answer:

If the intent of your voice mail message is to get a call back, then you are going to want to do these four things:

  1. Be concise
  2. Break your listener’s normal preoccupation
  3. Capture their interest/create mystery
  4. Move them to action

Here are some of my favorite messages to leave:
