Do first impressions matter?
On a scale of one to ten, where would you say you rate when it comes to first impressions? Do people warm up to you right away? Or do you think it’s something you need help with? Here’s an example and something that might help…
A one-on-one client of mine told me she outsources some of her work to colleagues. It’s mostly the kind of work my client doesn’t want to do, or doesn’t have time for, or isn’t as good at. One of the people she outsources to does a great job. But my client said she doesn’t like referring people to her for one side issue. Because the other person isn’t good with first impressions.
Remember, first impressions aren’t always face-to-face meetings.
As a matter of fact, here’s a simple little thing you can do. It only takes about five minutes, and it can help you make an impressive first impression. Your voicemail. Now I said it CAN help. But your voicemail can give a bad first impression, too. Don’t leave the message on your voicemail up to the default “robot” voice. It’s not likely to impress anyone. So, take a little time to think about what you’ll say, and write it down or memorize it. Then, record your message with your most confident personality shining through. AND…don’t forget to add your unique value to the message.
People might continue to do business with you because they already know you. And maybe they’ll put up with, or overlook, your quirky or eccentric personality. But they won’t necessarily refer you to others who don’t know you or won’t “get you.” They just can’t afford to chance your bad first impressions costing them business.
