Marketing Me! Out of office telephone rules

Out of the office for business or vacation means letting others know how to reach you by telephone.

I always leave the following greeting on my voice mail the day before I leave the office:

"Thank you for calling [My Name}. For the week of/day(s) of [Date] I will be traveling and away from my office.
Please leave a detailed message and best way to reach you. If this is urgent, you may contact me on my cellular phone
at [number]. If I am meeting with a customer, leave a message and I will call you back when available.
Thank you and have a great day"

On a related note, it drives me crazy when a business programs its phone system with a recorded message directing callers to either send an email or visit a website.

When someone uses the telephone, they want to speak with a person! Give them the means to do so!
