Do you know how to leave a great voicemail in English?
Today you’ll get the 5 steps that you need to follow to leave a great voicemail.
Listen to the sample role plays in today’s episode to hear what your message should sound like.
Here are the steps:
1) Greeting: “Hi it’s Lindsay” or “Hey it’s Michelle”
2) Why are you calling: “I just wanted to talk with you about tomorrow’s meeting” or “I’m calling to catch up.”
3) What they should do next: “Would you get back to me when you can” or “Give me a call whenever you’re free”
4) Your phone number: “My number is 359-284-9856″ or “You can reach me at 617-593-0952
5) Say goodbye: “Hope you’re having a good day” or “Take care” or “Have a great one”
Here are a few other tips:
1) Make sure they know how to get back to you
2) Don't ramble, don't go on and on, don't leave a long message, make it concise and tight and to the point
3) Do leave a message- don't call and hang up, it's better to leave a message with some grammar mistakes than it is to not leave a message and not connect with the person
