Hi Y’All-The Texas Smile
I just got back from a Web Copywriting Intensive conference in Austin. And while it was fantastic to learn new, online skills to help my clients grow their businesses with SEO, PPC, e-mails, etc., the real insights came from the people of Austin.
Lately, I’ve been hearing so much “doom and gloom” that it was refreshing to meet so many nice people. Without hesitation, the Texans offered a friendly smile everywhere I went.
And don’t even get me started about the Austin airport — hands down the friendliest airport I’ve ever been to. I was actually treated like a customer or guest rather than a commodity! — I know, amazing.
It just goes to show you that you can still offer a friendly smile to make someone’s day…even when yours may not be going so well. This small gesture just may have a profound impact that helps boost your attitude, increase sales, find a new job or new clients, and more.
So with this in mind, when is the last time you shared a smile?
