How Will You Stand Out From The Pack?

In today’s fiercely competitive business arena, I am sure you may ask your self these questions?

• How do you stand out from the crowd?
• How do you get customers to buy from you and not your competitors?
• How do you crate raving FANS?

It is a known fact people do business with people they like and trust. Here are some basic guidelines for winning business and influencing people. These are simple obvious strategies that will increase your income, power, respect and success.

These strategies are designed to raise you above your competition no mater who your competition is.

So, how do you go about this?

1. In terms of your appearance, you must give carful attention to your dress, grooming and accessories. People will judge your quality of work by your physical appearance. What does your image say about you?

2. People always enjoy handwritten thank-you notes. Out-class your competition by sending thank-you notes. You can make them special by writing them on customized stationery.

3. Teach people about yourself and your product and or service.

4. When it comes to introductions, be prepared to answer the question “What do you do?”

5. Go beyond networking—build your business relationships strategically and systematically. The acquaintance you make today may become your closest business alliance tomorrow.

6. Get the name right. Take carful note of how the person introduces herself. If she says her name is “Elizabeth,” call her “Elizabeth, “Liz.”

7. When someone does you a favor or makes a referral, send a Thank You note.

8. Always be on time, and never overstay your welcome.

9. Send appropriate Holiday Greeting (i.e. Hanukah, Kwanza, Christmas)

10. Smile. Smiling is a great communication tool. It sends a message to others that you are personable and approachable. So SMILE, it could be the start of something great!

11. Don’t forget the Golden Rule. “Treat others like you want to be treated.” It’s a simple rule, but one that’s seldom followed in business. For some reason, we tend to show deference only to those who are higher upon the organizational chart than we are. Big Mistake.
