I don't know about you, but my teeth grind and my blood pressure goes over 143 when I hear a "business professional" answer their phone with, "Hello!"
The other week I called a real estate professional and he answered the phone like this.
"Hello, excuse I'm in an important meeting. Can I call you right back, who is this?"
"This is Kendall Matthews, calling about the offer my client, Dr. "X" has on your property."
"Oh yea, I really don't want to get into that in front of my client, call me back in 20 minutes."
I think my blood pressure reached 185.
We eventually canceled the contract because of communication difficulties with this real estate "professional." His business voice mail greeting wasn't much better, just the same " I will call you back as-soon-as-possible" line that millions of others have recorded on their cell phones.
Therefore, starting today I have decided to not work with any business person who answers their phone with "Hello." Feel free to forward this article to anyone who has the words, "As-soon-as-possible" in their business voice mail greeting.
