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.
