Voicemail Selling Skills (A Half day workshop)

Voicemail OVERVIEW

The technology of using voicemail to screen incoming calls is no longer a new phenomenon. The use of voicemail started in the US back in the early 1990's and is now used globally by the financial community to screen their incoming calls.

In many cases voicemail has replaced the two-way telephone call altogether. The only time a salesperson gets to talk to their client is at an event that brings them together. For most however there is still an opportunity to talk to their clients person to person.

Whatever the situation the importance of voicemail has increased considerably.

The ability to leave a clear, concise and interesting message has become a critical skill for salespeople and analysts if they are to build credibility and increase the chance of a follow up two-way call with the client.
