Voicemails don’t necessarily have to be monotonous or extremely jazzy or funky. What you’re looking for is a balance between the two. Whenever I call someone and their voicemail greeting is playing, it tells me a lot about who they are, as a person. Which is why, you’ve got to put a little bit of “you” when it comes to voicemail. And the best part about all of this is, since you couldn’t come to the phone, at least the callers are having a good time listening to the message.
What does your greeting have? Is it the automated one or have you personalized it to suit your personality? Many times, when we call our friends, family members, or any other places, all we get is the voicemail. But when that message on the other side of the line is plain, it can really put someone off. Now since we’re talking about voicemail, typically a standard greeting, embedded in by the phone companies, is so boring and mechanical. The same, “leave your message after the tone” or “you have reached seven…one…four..”; I might just as well fall asleep listening to these automated voice records. You voice message greetings are supposed to be fun, energetic, and witty so that the callers want to pick up their phones and give you a call (just so they can listen to the greeting again). Funny voicemail ideas could do that trick, won’t they? Whether it is for your home, office, or cell phone, set a good voicemail that will keep your callers laughing even after they’ve left you a message.
