The best business answering machine message examples are brief, less-than-one-minute distillations of a company’s brand.
At that moment, when a client is reaching out to you, that answering machine message is as important as your mission statement, your slogan and maybe even your logo. It should reflect total reassurance that the message your client leaves will be handled promptly and professionally.
Keep it simple.
Don’t keep it too simple.
If a customer has a negative experience attempting to connect with your company, you might scare away a potential client or losing the loyalty of a current customer. This places a lot of weight on the method by which you handle those calls that come in when you’re unavailable. Do it right, and your business will be that much stronger for it.
