Purpose of voicemail greetings
Voicemail may often be the first contact somebody has with you or your company, thus determining the impression they have of you. You want that first impression to project the image you desire personally and professionally. It also serves to convey certain information to a caller such as office hours or whatever else you consider necessary. Another purpose is to relay to the caller what information you would like to hear from them. Asking a caller to leave their name, message and call back number is a fairly standard example but there may be other information requested. With the importance of first impressions and relaying information, many people have taken to using professional voicemail greetings.
Points to consider in professional voicemail greetings
In preparing professional voicemail greetings, the contents of the greeting, tone the greeting takes and the actual voice must all be thought about. Professional voice over voicemail greetings may be called for to get just the right tone desired. A short list to be used as a guide line in making a professional greeting follows
- Make a script. Once you know what information you want the voicemail to contain write out a script that contains that information
- Rehearse the script out loud until you are comfortable with it.
- Make a practice recording to see what it sounds like. The script can be adjusted at this time if there is something that doesn’t sound quite right. You might also have somebody else listen and get their opinion. Keep practicing and correcting until satisfied with the way it sounds and comfortable with your delivery.
- Make the actual voicemail recording. This is much like doing the practice recording but people have a tendency to become nervous when recording something they know will be listened to. Speak slowly and clearly in the tone you wish to convey. Listen to the finished result and record again if not satisfied.
