Reinvent Your LAME Voice Mail
Is Your Message Stale?

“Tell people something they don’t know about what do... for them.”


Mike is in sales for an international company. He makes phone calls to prospective clients every day to sell a magazine that helps his clients make more money. When they call him and he is not in, he has a great message that gets prospects to call him back.... frequently!  People call just to hear his voicemail sometimes for personal inspiration.

His message was once the basic: “Hi, this is Mike. I'm not in right now. Please wait for the beep and leave a short message. I will return your call shortly.” Yeah, that is pretty lame... And it sounds about the same as everyone else's voice mail on the planet, too.

Mike decided to use a more proactive voice mail message than the traditional one that so many of his peers utilize. It helped him differentiate himself to his prospects and customers.

If you want to stand out from every other person, you have to do something different. Since everyone else is just offering “vanilla” in their messages, you have to add flavor to the people who are calling you.

In a day when people know you aren’t in (Hey, they got your voice mail instead of you so the secret is OUT) and they know what to do after the beep (Duh! They have a beep of their own on their phone - and they all sound the same), Mike wanted to differentiate from the ordinary, “vanilla” crowd. So, we reinvented his voice mail message.

He figured that he should give value to people calling him that no one else gives to customers. He figured he should tell his clients something unique that might benefit them. He figured right...

Stop telling people what they already know;
tell something they don’t know about what you do… for them!

Basically, Mike changed his voice mail: “Hi, this is Mike. I’m helping a client make a LOT of money right now. Leave your name, number and a brief message and I’ll help you make money NEXT!” Wow! It must have been effective. His clients loved the message. Even other sales reps in his company started calling just to hear it. His sales improved!

Apparently, his customers, clients (and even his competitors) were watching him... and listening too. He almost always leads his company in sales closings and, more importantly, has positioned himself as a trend-setter in a very “vanilla” world of account executives. He stands out regularly from the rest of his peers and competition.

In your voice mail, what can you say that you are doing...

A Reinvention Story

These are ordinary people who used circumstances, skills or inspiration to change their lives and the world around them. Enjoy!

What if you could do what you love doing—your passion—all of the time? What if you were paid vast amounts of money to do it?  What if it continued for years and years? That’s the life this unique man leads. It wasn’t all easy. Although he had a very rocky beginning, he has had more adventure in his life than most will ever see, or even imagine. That’s probably why he attracts so many fans and followers.

He has turned a passion for life into a multi-million dollar fortune just by being himself!

Who said, “I'm inspired by people who keep on rolling, no matter their age.”?

And The Survey Says...

Last month I spend a lot of time flying all over the country... from California to Vermont, Biloxi to North Dakota to New York and others! On each flight the attendants remind us that we may receive a survey in a few days about our flight and to please fill it out so they can learn to do a better job in the future. Nice.

However on one flight, where the air conditioning was broken, the attendant reminded us several times to not blame her for the faulty system. I get it, she wants a good reputation.

The next day, flying back home, we had the same attendant. This time, the flight was delayed an hour due to thunderstorms around the airport. Once again, she reminded passengers to not blame her when the survey arrived. She reminded us three times that we should give her good marks despite the weather delay.

What good is a survey if the employees tell you how to fill it out to their advantage?
