9 of the Best Voicemail Greetings for Your Business
Depending on the industry you work in, you may set up your voicemail greeting differently.
If you’re a small business, making a good first impression is even more important. Really consider your brand voice in this voicemail. How do you want people to perceive your brand? And make sure you embody that in your voicemail message.
“Hello, you’ve reached [name] at [business name]. We appreciate your call, but unfortunately we are unavailable at the moment. Please leave a message with your name and number and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.”
If you are using your number to capture leads, you’ll want to ensure that you’re addressing this in your voicemail greeting to avoid missing out on opportunities.
“Thank you for calling [business name]. We are currently unavailable to take your call, but would love to speak with you further about potential business opportunities. If you would like to speak with a member from our sales team please leave a message with your name, number and company name and someone will return your call within 24 hours. For other enquiries please visit our website and fill out the contact form.”
While your voicemail may differ depending on whether the call is received after-hours or when you’re out-of-office, the example below can be used for a range of situations.
“Thank you for calling [medical office]. We are currently closed, but our hours of operation are [business open] to [business close] [days of operation]. If this is an emergency, please hang up and dial triple 0. If you would like to book an appointment, please leave a message with your name, phone number and reason for booking and someone will be in touch shortly.”
You’ll most likely want to include information such as your store's hours of operation and location in your voicemail greeting. You may also want to address your return policy or customer service options as well.
“Thank you for calling [store name]. Our hours of operation are [business open] to [business close] [days of operation]. Currently, all of our employees are busy assisting customers. Please visit us in-store or leave a message and one of our team members will get back to you as soon as possible.”
Do you receive a number of inquiries on inspections for listed properties? Having a voicemail greeting that addresses this can be important.
“Thank you for calling [business name]. If you are calling to express interest in one of our listings, please leave a message with your name, number and the address of the property. One of our agents will return your call as soon as possible.”
