Don’t be “Futureshop” be “BestBuy”

October 1, 2008

If you’ve ever been to a Futureshop or a BestBuy you will take notice of the difference the salespeople approach you. One of them is the aggressive pushy sales guy and the other is the attentive associate waiting to answer you every question. OK, so that’s a bit of an exaggeration. You’d be lucky to find someone at BestBuy who actually knows their stuff. More often than not they are the part time student who just wants the day to end and could care less whether that digital camera has image stabilization or whether you can find your favorite DVD in blu ray.

The point is being pushy never comes off well, whether it’s in a store, on a date, or on the Internet. There’s a difference between making your services available and making the information available and shoving the sales pitch in the readers face. More frequently you notice invasive advertisements popping up everywhere and on every site. Visitors coming to your site would relish a break from the pushy sales tactics. Making that first positive impression can go a long way.

Honesty and consideration can be a deal breaker. Make sure that the deal goes your way.
