The chances are, if they’re interested in listening to what I have to say, they’ll call me back if I leave a message. If I don’t leave a message, it’s on me to reach out to this person again.
Another reason I choose to leave a voicemail is that it often sparks an interest where there may not have been one before. Oftentimes I’ll reach someone and they will tell me that they have been thinking about what I’m calling about for the last few weeks. It just so happens that I left my first message for them a few weeks prior to that.
Ultimately, whether or not you choose to leave a voicemail on a sales call comes down to personal preference. Experiment until you find a system that works for you.
When listening to a message, most people will not write down your information until they know they want to call you back. That’s why it’s best to give your contact information again, after the call to action.
