7 Ways to Improve Your First Impression

I am amazed how little most people care about the initial impression they make. Are they unaware or just simply uninterested? Recently, I have been helping a few clients with business development and hiring. In that process, I have interviewed potential partners, vendors, management candidates and entry-level applicants. Across the board, I am astounded at how poorly people present themselves in person, online and by phone.

So many express dissatisfaction with their ability to close deals, make the right contacts or attract powerful opportunities. But for many, it’s not the economy, their financial status or even Congress getting in their way. It’s their inability to leave the kind of first impression that would make other people want to come back and spend more time, money or effort.

A little thought and intent goes a long way toward improving how people see you. Here are seven tips to help you wow them from the start.
