You’ve got the best product and you just know it’s going to be right for this new prospect.
You’ve practiced your presentation in order to get in front of the prospect and you pick up the phone with great confidence.
You call and ….yes, it goes to answerphone!
Do you leave a message?
Have you practiced leaving a message so it sounds professional?
If not, you’re going to sound like a jerk, and no better than all the other salespeople who have left messages before you.
What if you dislike leaving voicemails?
Are there ways that you can get round the voicemail, and sometimes the gatekeeper?
Try these and see if some of them work for you:
It isn’t always necessary to leave a voicemail for someone.
If it’s an exploratory call or you’re simply calling for information, it may not be the right time to leave the voicemail anyway. But, if you really need to speak to the person, and the normal ways of getting hold of them don’t work, try one or two of these ideas and see if you have some success. Happy selling!
