Automated Answering Message


What sort of automated answer message does your business telephone number have?

Does your caller hear a message like:

on a cell phone, listening to an automated answering machine messageHello, this is (your business).  No one is able to come to the telephone now, but if you will please leave your name, telephone number, and a brief message, we’ll be in touch with you as soon as possible.

I was recently surprised to return a missed call and hear:

Hello, if you would like to be removed from our calling list, please press 1.

No business name, no promotional message, but sending a message that sounded to me like their business believed most callers would not want to hear from them again.

When you answer your ‘phone, take a breath and think what kind of impression you want to send to the person who’s calling you, and smile, because people can hear the smile in your voice.

Have you heard some strange automated answering messages?  Please share them with us in a comment.
