Better Call Everyone Back!

Two days ago I received several calls during the day. My phone was on mute for a few hours while I was attending a course in university. Usually, I try to call back every call but two days ago I thought: “If it was important they would’ve left a voice mail”. Yes, you are right, they didn’t leave a voice mail. So I forgot about calling these numbers back.

Today I opened my Skype. I subscribed for a landline number at Skype and usually, all calls are automatically redirected to my mobile phone or to Skype’s voicemail. I recognized that there was the same number which called my mobile phone yesterday also tried to reach me on my landline. What a big surprise. While this person didn’t leave a voicemail, she tried to call me several times.

Of course, I called the number immediately back. As it turned out it
totally was a potential prospect I wrote a message voicemail days ago. Luckily I called this number back.

So it doesn’t matter which number is calling you and whether someone leaves a voicemail or not, call them back. Seriously, you never know who is behind this number. It might be a spammy call-center but it might also be a future client of yours. Well, ignore calls if you are 100% sure that it’s a spammy call-center. Don’t let your mood decide whether to make this call-back or not.

Bonus Story: She wrote me an email as well…

Here comes a short bonus story: this prospect also sent me an email after she failed to reach me via phone. The sad story: 4 days ago we switched with our company email accounts from Google Suite back to Outlook. Whtotallyforgot was to add the info@advimu.com Email to everyone’s Outlook. The email address which is publicly on our homepage, on XING, and on LinkedIn. Ouch! Whatever, now it works just fine and I learned my lesson.
