Voice Mail Strategies

That Sell

How to Get Through More Often

More Quickly and Get More Calls Returned

Featuring Colleen Francis

Interviewed by Art Sobczak


It’s a fact that most salespeople reach voice mail more often than they do their desired prospect or customer.  Many salespeople consider voice mail to be the number one barrier to their ability to sell more and make more money.  The dilemma: What can we do to get through more often, more quickly, and get more calls returned?


That's what you will discover in this 55-minute Audio Seminar, in which Art Sobczak interviews internationally-known sales expert and consultant Colleen Francis who reveals her secrets for turning voice mail into an incredibly potent selling tool and actually using it to generate more sales.


Interestingly enough, we love our own voice mail because it allows us to ignore calls we don't want to take, or prepare for calls we'd rather not take right now. However, we hate the voice mail of our prospects and customers because it also allows them to do the exact same thing - including ignoring the calls we make to them! But, if you know how to manage it, you'll never again have to blame voice mail--or gatekeepers--for not closing enough business.


After listening to this seminar, you’ll actually find yourself wanting to get voice mail, because you’ll know how to use it to your advantage:


  • Why it may be better to get voice mail than a live person

  • Why they often don’t even listen to your voice mail message – and what to do about it

  • The real reason your calls don’t get returned.

  • The types of calls they choose not to return and the types they choose to.

  • The very first thing to do when you get voice mail.

  • How to put the listener into a positive frame of mind so they’ll actually look forward to your next call.

  • How to be persistent without being viewed as a “Stalker”.

  • How many attempts you should make in order to get through.

  • The key ingredient of a successful voice mail message.

  • A simple method for getting your calls returned – fast.

  • The hidden danger of getting a return call - and what to do about it.

  • How to succeed in getting through more often by using a “multi-media” approach.

  • Use the magic “3-Step formula” for getting through. Listen in to an actual segment from this portion of the seminar.

  • How long you need to wait between contact attempts.

  • The very best time to call when you’re most likely to get through – BONUS: This REALLY makes a favorable impression!

  • An amazingly simple technique that gets them to call you and actually apologize for not calling back sooner!

"I just wanted to tell you about my success yesterday using your voice mail technique. I was getting frustrated trying to reach this potential client, and David reminded me to keep trying, and I left a message yesterday morning advising her I would call her back at 3pm, and sure enough she answered the phone (finally) and I got the search from her."
