Making Money With Voice Mail
Although this money-making is continuously being marketed as "a way to make
money with your answering machine", new technology has actually rendered
this idea obsolete.
With the proliferation of voice mail, fax-back service, and very inexpensive
computerized voice processing systems, the answering machine, with its
limited one-call-at-a-time capacity, is no longer ideal for making money.
With the advent of these new technologies, the concept has also expanded to
a variety of processes which you can use to make money.
PEOPLE MUST CALL
With answering machines, the only way you can make money is when people call
you. Since an answering machine is hooked up to a specific phone number,
and since it does not advertise on its own, you will have to establish ways
to attract people to call your phone number so that people can listen to the
message recorded on your answering machine.
THE MESSAGE IS THE KEY
The message recorded on your answering machine is the key to your ability to
make money. The message can instruct people to send money for information
about any subject matter, or instruct callers to leave their name and
address so you can send them a sales brochure. The information you have
recorded on your machine should be encouraging and convincing enough to
motivate the caller to do what you have instructed.
THE 1-MINUTE SPIEL
Think of your recording as a radio commercial. Since callers have short
attention spans, and are used to hearing radio and tv spots that are not
more than 1 minute long it is advisable that you limit the length of your
message to about 1 minute, 2 minutes tops!
GETTING THE CALL & COLLECTING PAYMENT
Whatever it is you are selling, and by which you are using your answering,
your primary challenge will be in two areas: (1) How you can advertise and
make your telephone number known to a lot of people, and (2) How you are
going to collect payment for whatever it is you are selling. One of the most
popular topics sold on "answering machine schemes" is information abourt how
people can make money with their answering machine. This is worn out and
very unimaginative. More than likely, your caller will feel insulted and
not order whatever literature, report or booklet you want them to order.
Remember, if you want to have a recorded sales message over the telephone,
use a voice mail service, which may cost you around $8 a month.
