Making a GREAT first impression
Introduction, marketing tips, success online, work from home, making a great first impression, first

 VISIT WEBSITE (learn more)

Well I would like to use this blog to point out what many people will think is very much common sense. However many people still don't get the importance of the "First Impression".

Just because you are working online and you are making the "First Impression" by the way of sending a message and not a visual and physical connection like you do in the offline world.

Make your first message the most important message you will ever send that person.

Use their name and start with a "hello".
If you can spot something on their profile that you can relate to, maybe they are from somewhere you have visited or somewhere you have always wanted to go, maybe they work in the same career as you such as a teacher or a nurse, then mention it and that shows them you have taken the time to look at their profile.

Make the message warm and friendly and offer to be of help to them if they ever need it.

Ask them what opportunities they are in, how long have they been working online, how long have they been using the site you are mailing from.....open a conversation so they will more than likely reply to you...

Talk about that persons favourite subject which is "Themselves"... Ask them questions about themselves and they will talk to you.

Too many people just send an ad or a link without even a hello attached to it but yet they expect you to drop everything and look at what they are wanting to show you...

People that send me messages like that get very little response from me, even if the opportunity sounds good, I will then check with my friends and colleagues to see if any of them know of or are a member of that opportunity and if so I will then join with my friend...

Afterall why would I want to join with someone that can't even be bothered to say hello.

So think about what you are putting in your first message to someone and ask yourself "Would You reply to that message"?

You only have one chance at a "First Impression" SO GET IT RIGHT...

IBO is a great example of people thinking of the other person first. What better way to make a good first impression than sharing someone's post for them and making an encouraging comment.
 
Lisa Smith   736 day(s) ago
Agreed! Life is so much more fun when we build relationships, if we don't take the time to get to know people, why would we expect them to want to take the time with us? This is why I LOVE IBO!!! Thanks for sharing, Frazer :)

Common sense blog about common courtesy. Same idea was explained this way: If you are invited to a party, would you spend the whole evening talking about what's in your suitcase? NFL Club...no friends left!
