Dial up secrets to voicemail and info-by-phone marketing
When you’re away from home, your voice mail can still be there communicating your network marketing message to incoming callers.
Get an answering machine or voicemail provider that gives you the capacity to record messages that are longer than 60 seconds. It should be able to record a message for at least five minutes. Don’t risk annoying callers who get cut off when leaving a message.
Your message should be upbeat and tell callers they can expect a quick return call. Update your recorded message monthly to include your company’s newest network marketing product or bonus program. People will call just to get the news.
Some people won’t leave a message no matter how positive you sound. Get Caller-ID service and you will be able to call back those who just dialed your phone and hung up instead of leaving a message.
When you are making calls and getting voice mail, here are several tips:
- Speak up so the person can hear you.
- Be enthused, positive, and at ease. Leave your network marketing message as you would talk to the person like you’ve known them for years.
- Mention a benefit which your network marketing prospect will gain from calling you back, like a way to save money on the person s first order.
- When leaving your phone number, say the numbers slowly once and then repeat the number again.
- When you call back a second or third time, change your message to include something new that you did not mention before.
- When calling leads who don’t know you. mention that you are calling them back to follow up on their response to an network marketing opportunity ad.
- Practice leaving voice mail messages to yourself. Go over what you are going to say beforehand so your voice can come across with confidence.
- Be prepared to leave a brief message when you reach answering machines with short tapes.
Many multi-level marketing businesses offer a recorded product or opportunity message to refer network marketing prospects to. Referring people to recorded information by phone is practical when you’re sponsoring long distance and you aren’t sure what time zone someone will be calling from.
Businesses often play prerecorded marketing messages whenever a caller is placed on hold. Exploit this underused marketing tool by encouraging customers and distributors to take every opportunity to call the network marketing company. They’ll get the latest news and updates — and if they’ve dialed in on a company’s toll-free line, it won’t cost you or them a penny.
