Your message must be professional – not cutesy. Forget about your dog doing the voiceovers. Keep it short and snappy. Make sure you keep a call sheet handy and teach
your family how to take a message if everyone is using the same phone. If you have a teenage daughter and just one line then you must get Call Answering because the line is likely to be busy and people will only call back so many times.
- Consider giving out your e-mail and web site address as part of your message.
- If you sound like a drone then have someone with a pleasant voice record your message.
- Keep the tone of the message business-like.
