Creative business voicemail greeting ideas include jokes, motivational statements and asking the caller to mention a random fact in the message. Creative voicemail greetings engage the caller, but the recorder should make sure that the greeting fits his company.
One short voicemail joke is a message stating that the caller reached the correct person but called at the wrong time. Voicemail jokes should be short, and the recorder should make sure that the joke can't be considered offensive. If the recorder uses motivational statements, he can choose a statement that applies to his field or select a different statement every day. Random facts include the caller's favorite book or food. The recorder can ask the caller to include this information in the message.
