hey how ya doin?

Does your voicemail message make you cringe? ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It’s often the first impression folks have of you and / or your business.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
And first impressions count.

If you’re having trouble getting folks to leave their name (uh) and their number, use these 7 simple voice over techniques. I promise folks won’t go AWOL and you’ll know when they call…

⁣As someone who knows a bit about recording words, I’m sharing some basic voice over recording techniques to help you achieve a killer voicemail message.

They’re easy peasy and you don’t need any fancy-pants equipment.

So grab your phone, pen and paper and let’s get cracking:


1. ✏️ Write it down.

Unless you’re a lyrical gangsta, recording on the fly generally isn’t a good time⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


2. 📞 Have a call to action.

Don’t leave folks hanging with a vague ‘I’ll get back to you’. Give them an email address. Send them to your website. Get them to send a text⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


3. 🗣 Practise out loud.

In your head doesn’t count. Make sure your message doesn’t sound wick wick whack. Get to know your words. Now one more time with feeling⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


4. 🤫 find a quiet spot to record.

You don’t want dogs, babies or angle grinders as your backing track⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


5. 🐌 speak slowly and clearly.

Slower than you usually would. Your best slow jam please⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


6. 🎧 have a listen to your masterpiece.

Anything less than the best is a felony. Maybe you should record it again⁣…⁣⁣⁣⁣


7. ⬆️ update when things change.

Re-release your track if your name, biz or other deets change⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


Try it out and let me know how you go. Leave me a message after the tone 🔊 or in the comments below.⁣⁣⁣⁣
