If you are a business owner or manager in the Tampa Bay area and looking to upgrade to a VoIP business phone system, there is no time like the present. Before the phones are live, someone will need to record the greetings and voicemail messages. A cheery, professional voice delivered in a positive manner can smooth the way for your customers. This is why we believe you should consider hiring a professional voice actress (or actor) to record your greeting.
Tonality over Substance
When I was starting out in my business, my coach taught me that how I said things was much more important than what I said. My time as a cop affected my tone. Being described as blunt and assertive was a wake up call. That tone was not helping me get my message across to business owners, no matter how badly they needed my products. I had to work on softening my tone in order to communicate more effectively. This is even more important when the first impression of you isn’t in a face to face contact.
Let’s face it. The first impression of your business is often the voice that answers your calls. A gruff greeting can turn off potential customers. A cheerful greeting can be a subtle way of branding your business as professional, approachable and friendly. The auto-attendant is a wonderful tool. It serves as an automated receptionist that routes your calls in the most efficient way. Voicemail greetings that answer when you are unavailable should also reflect positive, approachable attitudes. (We all know at least one person that we really don’t want serving as the vocal representative of our company. Shh…It’s OK, I won’t tell.)
At A Better Choice Network Solutions, we will setup your phone system and program your menus. We will even help you write your script. If you have someone in your organization that has the demeanor and vocal talent to be the voice of your business, great!! If not, we are happy to arrange to have your greetings and/or voicemails recorded for you by a professional actress, or actor.
