There’s no way around it – voicemails are not an enjoyable part of a salesperson’s job. Not only is it a tedious process, but it’s largely ineffective in terms of getting a response. Consider these statistics (source):
- 80% of calls go to voicemail, and 90% of first time voicemails are never returned.
- The average voicemail response rate is 4.8%.
- 15% of the average sales rep’s time is spent leaving voicemails.
