You can’t make the first impression twice. People judge you in the first milliseconds when they see you. So let’s see how to dress like a person worth listening to. How to make that trustworthy first impression. There are three professional clothing styles which are appropriate and recommended:
- Formal business clothing shows professionalism. Clean and tidy suit and tie or a bit more casual style.
- Uniforms show you are a part of a stable professional organization/company.
- The same clothes as the employees in that company/lifestyle. Works perfectly on meetings.
If you have any consideration about what you wearing, kick it up a notch. There is nothing wrong with looking good. Looking like a professional will never hurt you. People will choose to give their attention to a person in a suit rather than a casual looking “guy”. In addition to that, you as a salesman will establish yourself as an expert much faster (in the first few seconds (but it depends on other qualities as well)) than usual.
Dress well, be confident in yourself and close the deal. Check out how to get the attention of your prospects and what is the number 1 rule in sales.
