You can print out these scripts and keep them next to you to help you get the more callbacks from your prospects so you can share your business, service or products with them.
If you’ve been following me for a while now you know that I’m big on having systems in place and I build my entire business using the internet and social media.
But that wasn’t always the case.
For the ﬁrst two years of my business, I used to generate leads online and would call every single one of them.
Two years of calling prospects and leaving LOTS of voicemails gave me a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn’t when leaving voicemails.
I pretty much became an expert at crafting voicemails that got prospects to call me back.
And I’ve put together some scripts for you inside this episode that you can download and use.
Bur ﬁrst, I want to share some tips with you that will help you have the best results when using these voicemail scripts.
Prospecting Tips – Don’t say too much
You want to keep it short and sweet.
People don’t have time to listen to long voicemails anymore.
Talking too much in a voicemail can annoy your prospect and deﬁnitely won’t get you any callbacks from them.
Prospecting Tips – Don’t give away the farm
Don’t give your prospect details on why you’re calling them. Always leave curiosity.
Sometimes people start rambling on about why their calling and that just ruins any chances of getting a callback.
Curiosity will get your prospect wondering what you want to share with them, and they’ll want to close that loop in their mind.
So remember, don’t go into any details, always leave some curiosity.
Prospecting Tips – Establish a timeframe
In your voicemail let them know when you’d like them to call you back.
And A.S.A.P is what you want to say.
If you say, ‘call me back’ that leaves it open to whenever…and whenever doesn’t always come around.
So, make you’re your speciﬁc with wanting them to get back to you A.S.A.P
Prospecting Tips – You’re a mover and shaker so act like one
Movers and shakers are busy people. They don’t waste time and use it wisely.
Everyone loves to follow and be around people who are going somewhere and making stuff happen.
Acting busy also helps you to not sound desperate because you need them to call you back.
🔶Okay, so now that we have the foundational prospecting tips laid out, let’s move into some scenarios and examples of some scripts you can use when you’re leaving voicemails.
Prospecting Tips –Scenario 1
✅You’re calling the people on your list to get them to look at your business, service or products.
Hey John, it’s Tanya. Can you give me a call back as soon as possible today when you get this message?
Thanks, talk to you soon!
Simple is best and did you notice?
✔I didn’t say too much
✔I left some curiosity
✔I established a time frame by using the word today
✔I was in a hurry because I’m a busy person
Prospecting Tips –Scenario 2
✅You scheduled an appointment with your prospect and they stood you up.
I handle this scenario in 3 phases.
You leave your first voicemail:
Hey John, Tanya Aliza here, I’m calling you at our scheduled appointment time. I was expecting to chat with you and hope everything’s okay. Hey listen, I’m free for the next 20 minutes as I had blocked this time out for us in my schedule. I really hope everything is okay but please call me back as soon as you get this message.
Talk to you soon!
This voicemail message works for 3 reasons:
💠 It assures the prospect that you have some empathy by telling them you hope everything is okay.
💠It lets them know that you blocked out some time in your schedule which is pretty important and that you were expecting them to be available when THEY said they would be.
💠You established a timeframe by saying call me back as soon as you get this message.
P.S. If you’re getting stood up frequently by your prospects…you might want to check out Episode 17 so you can get more people to actually Show Up to your business presentation or meeting.
Prospecting Tips –Scenario 3
✅If you don’t get a call back leave this follow up voicemail message:
Hey John, what’s going on, Tanya here again. I haven’t heard back from you after I called you back for the time we had scheduled to meet…and I sure hope everything is okay with you. Can you please call me back as soon as you get this message today…just want to make sure that everything is ﬁne on your end.
Talk to you soon!
If they call you back, great, but if they don’t then you move on to the next scenario.
Prospecting Tips –Scenario 4
✅I leave my ﬁnal message.
I leave this message the next day or 24 hours after the original scheduled appointment time:
Hey John, It’s Tanya here, I left you a couple of voicemail messages yesterday regarding our scheduled appointment time that we had blocked off but I haven’t heard from you yet. I truly hope that everything is alright, and nothing’s happened to you.
Hey listen, I know you said you were interested in hearing about what I’m doing, and I don’t know if right now might not be the right time for you but that’s not a problem. I’m going to cross you off my list and if things change just let me know. Also, please send me a quick text message or call back and just let me know that all is okay with you. I’d really appreciate that.
Have a wonderful day!
Here’s why this voicemail message works almost every time.
🔹People do not like being crossed off of anything without their permission.
🔹If they were truly serious about taking a look at what you’ve got, they will call you back because they don’t want to get crossed off your list.
🔹And also, you have to empathize with people because things do come up and life gets crazy. So showing some empathy can go a long way.
