People are always searching for new ways to
find customers…..
Well, the only way you’ll
find them is by talking
to more people.
You need to get out from behind your desk …
and start a conversation.
But people will think
you are weird if you just
walk up to them and
start talking…
“You’re weird, what’s that about your dog?”
So start by finding
something in common,
it’s much easier and far
more natural.
Work colleagues will chat
Smokers will chat
Same interest groups will
chat
But too many people
don’t see the
opportunities all around
them because…
they are too busy with
other things like…
fiddling with their smartphone …
or are busy plugged in….
to notice who is nearby.
You just never know
who you are sat next
to…
on the train …
in the coffee shop …
at the match …
So find some
commonality in the
situation and say
something like …
“great shot, I’ve not seen you here
before, do you come often?”
“boy I’m ready for my latte today”
“Is it a good book?”
Now go out and find someone new to
talk to.
Oops, I said talk to ….
• Get out to more places
• Aim to speak to 5 new people
each day
• Mix your destinations up a little
• Find the commonality
• And start with Hello 
