Top 4 Ways To Provide The Best First Impression In Business

how to make good first impression in business

You may not know it but your clients make up their mind about you within the first 5 to 10 seconds of meeting you. I know this seems incredibly unfair but that is life and so you must deal with it if you want your business to be successful. This means that you have to do everything within your power to create the best first impression every single time because it is difficult enough getting an appointment with a new client and so you need to make the most of this opportunity. 

This isn’t just an opportunity to impress your new client because word of mouth travels pretty fast in the business community and so if they don’t like you then they will tell their other business friends about you too. You need to make sure that you put your best foot forward every single time and if you have any issues in your relationships at home then these are not conducive to a good mindset when it comes to meeting new clients. Your sexual needs need to be met in the bedroom in order for you to be in the right frame of mind for business and so if you have to use your strap on as part of your lovemaking, then so be it. Once you get that out of the way, you can start to concentrate on how you can create the right first impression. 

4 Ways To Make A Good First Impression In Business

1. Dress To Impress 

Everyone says that you have to look the part to get the part and this is incredibly through when it comes to new business relationships. If you look successful and you look confident then your potential new business clients will be able to put their trust in you knowing that you will take their new account very seriously indeed. It pays off to dress for success!

2. Learn How To Listen

Business clients always complain that salespeople don’t listen to them and all they are trying to do is to create an opportunity for themselves. You need to start listening more to your potential customers so that you can offer them advice when asked and you can say so much to them just by using your body language. 

3. Exude Confidence And Professionalism 

While it is important to be a professional and to show confidence in business meetings, you also need to give the impression that you are there for the benefit of your new client and not just for yours. The client must know that this new business relationship will begin on an equal footing and will remain that way. 

4. Turn Off All Your Devices 

There is nothing worse than a new client trying to explain what it is that they want from your business and your smartphone starts to ring and even worse, you answer it. Turn off all of your digital devices and give your new customer your full attention. 


If you follow these four above pieces of advice then you should be able to create the right first impression every single time. Remember that you never get a second change to make a good first impression!
