I believe Laurie Ayers is making a great point in this post aimed at reminding direct sellers to use people’s names.
Using a person’s name will make you more approachable and more likable.
Don’t believe me? Try it. I challenge you for the next seven days to go out of your way to use others’ first name. When you’re out and about and see someone with a name tag, use it. Next time your barista hands you a White Chocolate Mocha, thank that person using the name on the name tag. No name tag? That’s easy – just ask, others are happy to tell you their name because they love to hear their own name.
I think I’m going to take this advice and apply it to my social media interaction and blog commenting today. I’m going to make a real effort to use people’s names when I engage them.
How can you take and use this advice today?
