7 Voicemail Secrets to Get a Call Back Every Time


Relying on email to schedule informational interviews? Voicemails can be a better way to get noticed and get on someone’s calendar. In today’s post, Stephen Key of Entrepreneur shares 7 Voicemail Secrets to Get a Call Back Every Time. Stephen’s advice fits with my experience. His most valuable point is leaving your name and number at the beginning and end of voicemails; you want to make it easy for people to call you back.

In my role as a Business Development Director, I leave a voicemail the first time I call. I leave a second a few days later if I don’t hear back, and follow-up with an email immediately after. That shows you are committed to connecting and gives people an option for how to contact you. This approach should work well with scheduling informational interviews, too. Let me know how it goes in the comments.
