STILL hate voicemail. I just do not see the point in leaving a message informing the client who it is they need to avoid. I have tried it, left a lot of info, left a little info, left NO info and the results are alwys the same. 1% of voicemails are responded to. The biggest responder I have had is ?Hi this is Dave Moore. My number is XXXXXXXXXX. Would you please call me when you can because I need to speak to you about?? hang up. I got a call back a few times from people wondering what happened and I said I had no idea and that I left them a message explaining what I wanted, ?well, let me explain again?. Unethical, possibly but I am not convinced that voicemail works. I use my voicemail as a screener.
