Here are seven steps to get more prospects to call you back:
1. Leave a Clear Voice Message
A prospect should only have to listen to your voicemail once to take action and return your call. If you have an uncommon name, pronounce it clearly and spell it out to help the caller.
2. Leave Them Wanting More
When giving a sales presentation over a voicemail, be sure to leave the prospect with interest piqued. Leave enough information for them to know who you are, why you're calling, and why it will benefit them to call you back.
3. Develop a Point of Reference
An efficient voicemail must have a message that quickly identifies the reason why the prospect was called. According to studies, strangers typically return calls quicker if a message addresses exactly what they need.
4. Plan Carefully
When callers listen to a voicemail, they shouldn’t remain on the line for more than a minute. Take the time to write a script that can help you organize exactly what you want to say without giving too little or too much information..
5. Don’t Ask Questions
You will do best to not include questions in your voicemail message. Also, being overly aggressive in a message is not recommended. Callers must not feel like they are demanded to return a call.
6. Remain Professional and Enthusiastic
If your callers hear a lot of noise in the background of your voicemail, you will likely be hard to understand and appear unprofessional to your prospects. Enthusiastic behavior is the key to capturing sales. Leave your voicemail in a quiet setting so that each caller can hear the tone of your voice and pick up on your contagious enthusiasm.
7. Call Regularly
Lastly, tell prospects that you will continue contacting them on a regularly basis. By calling consistently and respectfully, more people will likely return your future calls.
