“You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile!” Well ARE You?
I was on the “blog home” page the other day and I looked to my right at all of the many AR members whom I follow. Want to know what I saw?
A lot of SMILING Faces!
Well yes, there was a frog, and a door, and oh yes, a fountain and birds (I do love these bloggers, though) however for the most part the members to whom I subscribed, whom I Follow, all have nice, welcoming smiles on their faces.
So what, you say. Well I was wondering if I subscribed to those members because I liked their smile….. or perhaps did I like their blogs because their smile came through in them?
Without naming names (because what’s the point, you know if you are smiling in your profile picture) I’ve not always subscribed to or read some posts because the author’s profile picture didn’t seem very welcoming.
Yes, I know, don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but we’re human, and we do.
We tell our clients that all of the time…. “You only have 10 seconds to make a good first impression.” Tell me honestly you haven’t said that to a Seller at least once in your life.
I also know that when I managed a sales office, upon the suggestion of a consultant, we placed mirrors on everyone’s desk reminding them that how they looked was how they were coming across on the phone.
See, titles catch our attention, but so does your welcome mat, which is your profile picture.
So if you’re thinking of getting a new profile picture… don’t forget to SMILE!
