5 elements of a great
voice mail
Element 1: Name

Always start your message by clearly giving your name (and
company if applicable). Be sure to clearly enunciate by saying your
first name, pausing for a moment, then your last name.

Two rules apply here. First, never assume they will recognize you
from your voice nor should you assume they know your last name
when they hear your first name.

The pause in the middle is to keep your first and last name from
running together. Time the pause by saying the word “pause” in your
head between the two names.
