No one likes voice mail, but if you make an effort to use voice mail more efficiently, you will see improved results in a matter of days.

Take advantage of the greeting to promote a new offer or new service of some kind. And, be sure to update your email message daily so you send a clear signal that you are on top of your agenda at all times.

There are other tips as well. For example, find out if you can broadcast a voice mail to others on your system, especially if you want others in the company to know abour a particular activity or project.

Also, try to return voice mail messages within 24 hours. You'll stay at the top of your game and others will appreciate your quick and ready turnaround.
