Professional Voice-mail Greetings

Amanda's post got me thinking about all the times I've heard unprofessional voicemails. I may have even been guilty of this in the past. It's a important lesson for all of us.

Most of us acknowledge our name, company we work for and some type of greeting behind it on our voicemail’s. I have reached more than one VM of an agent this week and in the background of their recording I hear kids, either screaming or laughing – and in another a dog barking. I find it to be completely unprofessional and it leaves me wondering how they weren’t able to find 2 minutes to go into a quiet room and record what was going to be their greeting on their cell phone or office number.

 

Presenting a professional image isn’t limited to business cards or responding to emails. Its every last detail including your email signature and voice-mail greeting that creates your brand. Background noise on a voice-mail whether it be kids, people or anything else doesn’t present a professional image. It makes me wonder if they are that busy that they can’t get away from outside noises long enough to record a message and if that’s the case what will their clients think?

Amanda you are correct making a positive impression with potential and existing clients is key to hopefully doing business.  We sometimes forget about our voicemails......you have to wonder sometimes when agents don't even acknowledge that they are in the business when you get their voice mail.  Great food for thought
