  • 1. VOICEMAIL DON’TS TOP 10 PROSPECTING
  • 2. Based on an inspiring blog post.
  • 3. For cold callers, voicemails are invaluable.There are ten things you absolutely should not do…
  • 4. #1: PLAYING “PRETEND” There’s no need to pretend you’ve called before if you haven’t. For one, it’s a lie, and it doesn’t mean all that much anyway. ! Instead, research enough so that you’re able to start with a great value proposition.
  • 5. #2: OOPS…I DIDN’T MEANTO SAY ALLTHAT Keep it short and sweet. ! When you start getting wordy, your message gets convoluted and you won’t portray a great point. ! Don’t leave a rambling message.
  • 6. #3:YOU’RE MISSINGTHE POINT Leaving a voicemail that is just a list of what your product can do will be a nail in the coffin. ! Instead, make a compelling challenge that will interest your prospect and help them remember you.
  • 7. #4: NOT LEAVINGYOUR NAME AND NUMBER In absolutely every voicemail, make sure and leave both your name and number. ! It’s easiest to leave your information at the beginning of every voicemail, so you don’t look unreliable if you call back.
  • 8. #5: NO ONE LIKES A QUITTER Don’t give up after a call or two, keep reaching out in new and creative ways. It pays to be persistent. ! Research shows that it often takes nine attempted connections until you finally get a response from your prospects.
  • 9. #6: SHORT AND NOT SO SWEET While short and sweet is good, too short is bad. Make sure and demonstrate value and compel the prospect to call you back, instead of leaving abrupt and boring voicemails.
  • 10. #7:THE NEEDLE INTHE HAYSTACK When you’re leaving a voicemail, make sure that you stick things that communicate your message clearly. ! You can’t spend your time mentioning everything your product can do or you’ll bore the prospect before they even hear the entire message.
  • 11. #8: PLAYING HARDTO GET Leaving one message and waiting for a call back won’t get you in touch with the people that matter. ! Instead, have a plan on how to reach out to prospects over time. WhatCounts’ 7x7 strategy is a great starting place.
  • 12. #9: FORGETTING WHO SENTYOU If you have a referral- use it. ! You shouldn’t be afraid to ask valued customers for referrals and when you do have them, make sure and use them to make a cold call a lot warmer. !
  • 13. #10:TALKING ON FAST-FORWARD If you’re talking too fast, the message sounds forced and insincere. ! Speak with confidence and lose all the “umm’s.”
  • 14. There you have it… ! Ten voicemail don’ts that can make your calling more efficient.
  • 15. Makes it easier to generate accurate and targeted lists of leads from the internet. Sign up here!
