When leaving your number in a voice mail, state it twice

When you are leaving a voicemail to someone, try and state your contact number twice. This is helpful when you are especially calling someone who may not already have your contact number.

Say it once at the start of the call. And again say it at the end of the call like “and again my contact number is…”.

For example: “Hello, my name is X and you can reach me at (number). I’m calling because (reason). And again my number is (number).”

If the receiver missed your number at first, then they get another chance to note down your number at the end of the message. It prevents them from having to listen to the entire message again to note down the phone number. This makes it easier for the person to return your call.
