Here's something that makes me crazy in a sales situtation. Someone calls. It's a marketing touch. They are trying to sell me something. I may even be interested. They leave a telephone message.
Somewhere in the message they quickly rattle off a telephone number. They never repeat the number. If I want to call back, I have to listen to the message again.
Make it easy on the person you're trying to reach. Always leave your telephone number twice and you'll probably get twice as many return calls.
Anyone else have phone message stories (good or bad)? Share them in the comments section.
