I was just walking about my house today and my kittens wouldn’t leave me alone! I swear they were being so pushy and in my face today! Then I started thinking people could learn from this. I mean after I tried pushing them away and it didn’t work I gave in! Now they were nice about it and didn’t scratch me but they definitely told me something since they can’t talk.
Is your business like a kitten? Do you just come out when you feel like it and demand respect, admiration and petting? Well if you know anything about being social you know THAT doesn’t work in the beginning because you come off way too strong and people push you away. At that point no one wants to establish a relationship with you.
Well one thing about my kittens is that they are persistence and want to be all up in my stuff all the time. Your business has to be involved like that! You have to be curious as to what people are doing at all times and how you can relate to them. Some of them will push you away and then others will finally welcome you in and give you that attention that you need.
Just like kittens, they aren’t always up in your face they need time to rest and time to play. They like to have fun and they are very social creatures at least mine are! So sometimes when they aren’t needing my attention, I need theres! I go seek them out when I’m ready. Just as customers will seek you out when they need you the most.
This concept applies to all aspects of life, be persistent but don’t be annoying…..at least not all the time!
