With Voicemail Drop on the Professional Plan, you can leave pre-recorded voicemails with one click. You will not have to listen to the voicemail greeting and wait for the "beep" anymore. This will save you time and energy, and ensure that you leave the perfect voicemail to your prospects - every time.
- Pro Tip: increase your callback rate by getting a Morgan Freeman voice actor on fiver.com to record a marquee first-call voicemail drop that all your agents can upload and use.
Voicemail Drop works through A.I. Powered Smart Beep Detection by dropping the voicemail before the beep - meaning that our platform actively listens to the beep played after a person's voicemail message. AI Smart Beep Detection is not perfect and there is no guarantee that the voicemail will drop (since not all voicemail boxes have a "beep"), however, if you follow the appropriate steps Voicemail Drop will function as expected all or most of the time and is the fastest method to get through calls.
On average, our stats show that Voicemail Drop saves 1 minute per call, which equals roughly 1 hour per day saved! (Average sales person makes 60 calls per day)
Question: When would it make sense for me to use Voicemail Drop?
- If you find that you are leaving the same voicemail messages over and over to customers (e.g. "Hey this is John from LendingTree, I'm calling to pre-qualify you for a loan...") then you would benefit from Voicemail Drop.

Question: Why aren't my voicemail messages getting left?
- You are dropping the voicemail when Kixie is still dialing or you are dropping the voicemail too quickly after the voicemail answers, or:
- Some voicemail boxes have strict timing requirements, or don't have a detectable beep. In these relatively rare cases, the voicemail would not be dropped in. Nevertheless, the customer will always see a missed call from you.
Question: Why is there a long silence before my voicemail message starts playing?
- You are dropping the voicemail either too close to, or after, the "beep".
- Remember to drop the voicemail right after the voicemail greeting begins to play.
OTHER TYPES OF VOICEMAIL DROP (the Default is "Beep")
There are three different types of Voicemail Drop:
- "Beep" (default) – This is the default type of VM Drop, and is the type referenced in all of the instructions above
- "Silence" – Kixie will wait until it detects silence on the other end of the line before it drops the voicemail. This is ideal for situations where you are calling numbers that don't have a standard "beep" at the end of their voicemail greeting.
- in this case, you still wait for the customer's voicemail greeting to begin playing, and click "Submit"
- "Manual" – a.k.a. Personalized Voicemail Drop, drops the voicemail without listening for a "beep".
- In this case, you click "Submit" after the beep.
- This option is necessary if you're calling international or Canadian numbers that lack "beeps" in their voicemail boxes
- You can also also personalize this type of voicemail drop by saying "Hey John", and then click "Submit".
- This method is slower since you have to listen through the voicemail message, but ideal for use cases that benefit from a more personal touch.
CUSTOMIZE VOICEMAIL DROP LIST ORDER
You can reorder your voicemail drop list by appending numbers or letters to the beginning of a Voicemail Drop title.
