Voicemail Greeting Examples

By

The Internal Voicemail Greeting is used to greet people who call you from within your own company (i.e. from another extension within your company). Since they are already part of your company, you don't have to state the company name, website and/or slogan. But, professionalism and detail must be maintained in your voicemail greeting. Additionally, make sure you always adhere to the basic elements of good voicemail greetings.

Here are a few good internal voicemail greeting examples:
