One Thing Booth Staff Can Learn From The Wolf Of Wall Street

“You have four seconds to make a good first impression. If you make a bad first impression, it takes 7 subsequent meetings to change that.” – Jordan Belfort

I know for sure after a trade show, the chance of booking 7 meetings with a client is not that high.

Here are some other stats on making the first contact (a call or email where the client replied) with the client:

  • 5 out of 10 salespeople give up after the first
  • 7 out of 10 give up after the second
  • 8 out of 10 give up after the third
  • 9 out of 10 give up after the fourth

If 9 out of 10 sales reps give up after the fourth contact, imagine the chance of booking that first meeting let alone the seventh meeting.

Hence, that first impression is critical.
