2) Why are you calling: “I just wanted to talk with you about tomorrow’s meeting” or “I’m calling to catch up.”

3) What they should do next: “Would you get back to me when you can” or “Give me a call whenever you’re free”

4) Your phone number: “My number is 359-284-9856” or “You can reach me at 617-593-0952

1) Make sure they know how to get back to you

2) Don’t ramble, don’t go on and on, don’t leave a long message, make it concise and tight and to the point

3) Do leave a message- don’t call and hang up, it’s better to leave a message with some grammar mistakes than it is to not leave a message and not connect with the person
