My voicemail script

Hello,

I just changed my voicemail script to the following:


Hello _______,
This is _______ from _______ at _______ and I left you a voicemail on _______.
I am calling to discuss your uniform program and to save you money on your employee apparel. We are vey competitve and I would like to discuss some options that would increase your bottom line.
My number again is _______ and I would love the opportunity to introduce our company.
My last voicemail was too long I think, sometimes reaching a minute. I think this is better. It also has a GBS unlike my last one.

This is fine, right? - by Jakobi
You might try....

Hi. This is [yourname] from [yourcompany]. We are currently not doing any business with your company and certainly would like to change that situation. I would like to sit and talk with you about your business and your goals in regard to the growth of your business. Perhaps one of these days we can do business
together. Would you be open to that possibility? Call me back at [yourphonenumber]. - by jdedwa11

Jakobi...I think it sounds pretty good...the only thing i might add is make sure you repeat slowly your name and phone two times. If you know percentages of savings that would be good to say such as; I could save you as much as 20% on your uniforms.

I like it.

Do you guys have any numbers, as to how many people call you back from the voice mails that you leave? For example 10%, 1/10, 2/10?

Thanks - by Jumpman
Thanks for the help guys. Yeah I dont know the savings until we quote them and sometimes depending on the company they are using...we are sometimes cheaper and sometimes we are not.

There are some national players out there that have some REALLY competitive prices. However our strong point is that not many companines in our industry have the all the services that we do under one roof.

The numbers I am not sure about. I found out with voicemails is that eventually they know your name, your company name and that you will not stop calling them until you talk to them.

I leave about 100 voicemails per week. It varies because most of the people who would call me back have, and the ones left are the people who are just ghosts.

I will keep leaving them and eventually they either will keep getting voicemails or can simply return my call.

We are in B2B sales so it might be a lot different then B2C sales. - by Jakobi

I agree about the slowly leave your name and phone number twice.

Jakobi,

Results will obviously vary from customer to customer in terms of what you can save them. Do you have a strong success story or two? Or even strong numbers from one of the clients you saved money for?

In your voicemail, you might consider adding something like "we recently saved [a similar company to you] $xxx last year alone. I'd like to discuss how we can do the same for you."

Talking in bottom line, real figures can be a strong motivator for a returned call. Keep your voicemails short and sweet, but try to be as punchy and impactful as you can be. The more vague, the less callbacks.

This is a recent script I have been having some success with maybe you should give it a try.

"Hello, this is John Boyd with Clark Chevrolet. We specialize in assisting customers in finding a car that they want, providing financing options for purchasing the car, and providing excellent service to you while you own your vehicle. I am not sure exactly where you are at in the buying process, but I wanted to get together with you so we can sit down and go over exactly what you need in your next vehicle and the different options you have when purchasing. Do you have time today or would tomorrow be better for you?"

Break Down:
"Hello, this is John Boyd with Clark Chevrolet."
Introduces who you are and who your company is.
