In this video, the third installment in her ten-part series on Networking, Roberta Perry discusses proper ways to greet and engage people in conversation.
Your success starts with how you dress and your posture—how you present yourself to others.You should dress as professionally as you can afford to dress.
At least dress to the level that suggests you can buy the products that you sell.
If you sell a $100,000 product you need to dress like you can afford a $100,000 product.
The more successful you look, the more successful you will be. People can get offended by a lot of things but they will never get offended by you wearing a suit.
White is great. A white shirt, a white blouse goes with everything. Stay away from trendy and cool.
Common mistakes salespeople make include:
I can put you in a $5,000 suit and if you don’t know anything, you’ll just be a $5,000 idiot
Back up your professional look with knowledge.
Go out and start dressing more professionally. You will become more confident because you will feel better about yourself.
But remember, self confidence is the only outfit you can’t buy it.
You must develop it!
