Advancing the brands Focus Marketing Events represents requires our team members to network frequently. Success in the sales and marketing industry necessitates the ability to make a positive impression on people quickly and consistently. There are a few ideas and strategies that we keep in mind when meeting new people to help ensure success.
It is important to remember that first impressions are important. People tend to make judgements on those they meet in about half a minute. Therefore, it is essential to be mindful of the impact that every decision can make. Pay attention to your appearance, demeanor, and speech.
Remembering to be thoughtful of the factors that affect the impressions we leave has helped us at Focus Marketing Events to make friends with everyone we meet. This is important because a first judgment can greatly affect the rest of the relationship.
Of course, all hope isn’t lost if a first meeting goes poorly. Consistency is key when trying to change someone’s opinion. Research shows that people will overlook a poor beginning if you make sure to regularly add value in future interactions.
We at Focus Marketing Events remind you to be careful of the first impressions you make. If things don’t go well at first, however, don’t worry too much. There will always be a chance to right the course of your relationship.
