Nice To Meet You: Simple Tips To Make A Good First Impression On Customers

It’s crucial to make a strong first impression to develop customer relationships and make sales. From the second you approach a new customer, your personal presentation will influence that customer’s decision on whether to choose your business.

But how will your customers make decisions about you and what is it that they’re looking for? Here are a few ways you can make a good first impression on your new customers so they’ll keep coming back to your business again and again.

Use the right body language when meeting them

Customers trust their gut when making a business decision and that’s largely based on early decisions they’ve made about you. These decisions are often based on your mannerisms, body language, facial expressions, word choices, and tone of voice.

These are a lot of small things to do keep in mind when meeting someone new. To help you, here are some useful tips to remember:

    • Give a friendly, sincere greeting.
    • Make eye contact when shaking their hand.
    • Smile warmly.
    • Pay attention to what your customer is saying.

This last point is important because oftentimes you’ll have an idea of what to say in the back of your mind. But if you have something to say to your customer already queued up, it won’t sound natural during the conversation.

Dress and act the part

Your appearance is an important factor in showing your customers that you respect your business, services, and products. This doesn’t just mean dressing professionally.

You’ll want to be sure that you’re confident, but relaxed with a straight posture. Make sure that the clothes you’re wearing are tailored to fit you. A baggy suit may tell a customer you don’t have the time to put in the effort for fixing details.

Finally, you’ll also want to be sure that your company headshots match your appearance. You don’t want to use headshots that are any more than two to five years old.
