YouMail.com should be called YouWOW!

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Northern Virginia Homes - FRANKLY REAL ESTATE Inc

This is a MUST HAVE. So Don't think "Will I" instead think "How do I sign up?"

(This is not a paid advertisement, though I should get paid.)

YouMail.com Rocks. It is like the ShamWOW of the world of voicemail.

(This is not a paid advertisement, though I should get paid.)

YouMail.com does two main things. One for free and one for $7 a mo.

(Before I get started, the basics of Youmail is you have your unanswered calls forward to Youmail's special number, so it acts as your voicemail)

1) FREE:

Customized voicemails PER incoming caller ID number. So you have a greeting customized for that client. "Yo Bill, sorry I can't make the call, cuz you know I'd run across a busy highway to get your call if I could." THEY LOVE IT.

Also If you put in an offer for a house and are expecting a call... but also heading into a meeting. Change the voicemail for JUST that agent to hear, but make it sound like you changed ALL outgoing voicemail for them. For example "Hello, you have reached XYZ, please leav... oh and if this is Sally, I really wanted to get your call, but I stepped into a meeting, please Sally, leave a message." So Sally will think you she was important enough for you to change all of your outgoing voicemail greetings.

2) $7/MO Transcribe

Your voicemails then get transcribed by live humans. I think what they do is use speech to text and then have live humans spot check it for accuracy. It works great. I went 2 years without voicemail, I used AnswerConnect.com and AppleTreeAnswers.com / Apple Tree Answering Service / which use live operators to answer your missed calls... but it just didn't work well enough. The operators didn't get when my wife called and said "It is his wife" that the operator probably didn't need to ask for her name and email and phone number.

Anyhow, so Google Voice also has the first free custom voicemail, but their second part was not spot checked my a human. Does this matter? Yes. I have Google Voice and vs Youmail it sucks. I got a transcribed Voicemail that really made me think my wife was in a car accident. No joke, it was that bad. 

So Youmail.com is a no brainer. It also has an iphone app. It also will email you and text you the transcribed VM and of course let you hear the VM if you are so inclined (why bother).

P.s. I gave this idea to a banker. Wow, he loved it. All of his clients felt like roaylty with a custom greeting.

P.s.s. Due to the feature, and the replies, I decided to make the link an affiliate link. Now I will get a couple bucks off my plan, hope you don't mind.

Update: Here is a message from Google Voice:

Hi, This message is for and through those. My name is matty and Harry me in a and I, H, E K A R R E N line at 703623488895, up on my distinctly located on at 96 or 3 George. Sounds like you've been great. Box listed now at 3.285 2 friends. If you don't mind to give me a call and I have. I just wanted a lot. Thank you again.

Note that I did not edit the # of digits.

Here is Youmail

Hey Frank, It is 5:15. I'm just leaving school now. I'm exhausted, getting ready for back to school night. Anyway, I think you finish at 5:00 today, so I was wondering if you were on your way home. Let me know your status. Was wondering how your stomach is feeling. Bye.

Again, Google voice sucks (at least now it does).

YouMail sounds great! Especially the transcription part. Does it give you a new number. What I like about GoogleVoice is the mask number.

I signed up for youmail about a week ago and don't like it so well.  I think I need to go back and see what I am doing wrong, since everyone else loves it so much.  I was acutally looking for the post where I signed up with it to see how I can unsubscribe and found this instead.  Let me rethink...

I am so disappointed! I am trying to use the youmail, I set up greetings and more, but METRO PCS isn't able to be used and at 45.00 a month for unlimited internet, texting and minutes all over the country, I cannot change it.
