“All things being equal . . .”
You know the expression. It’s said just before an UN-equal fact is about to be introduced in a conversation. That’s how many people are ‘wired’ to perceive reality — ‘similar with exception’.
Stand Out or Sit Down
Naturally, you want to ‘stand out’ from the crowd of your alleged competitors. And there are ways to do that. But most require time and money — the two biggie assets that no ever has enough of, right? Well, here’s how to save your money, use a little bit of your precious time and be seen as a ‘preferred provider’ of your problem-solving expertise.
Write . . . a “Thank You” Note
I get these. Rarely. But everytime I do, I am more impressed with the person who sent it and, (taking notes?) more inclined to do ‘something nice’ in return. I just got a great note from Jody Ferrer, President of The Perfect Promotion thanking me for a referral I’d made to her business. Included with the card was a smaller ‘bookmark’ branded for The Perfect Promotion. I am so impressed with Jody, her business and her business acumen that reflects her social skills.
If you want to ‘Stand Out’ . . . send a “Thank You” note!
