Biz03 - Manners in Your Business

Jul 28th 2010 at 10:04 AM

In Part One of Politeness we talked about what loyalty meant to me and why. Today we'll discuss Manners and how I use them in my business and expand on a statement I made earlier.

Using Manners In The 'Roles' We Assume

I was watching a television show recently in which a woman (lady A) hired her friend (lady B) as a maid for a dinner party. Now the show itself is pure entertainment for me but there was this one incident that stood out as a perfect example of how Manners are important in ANY situation!

When the guests arrived, one lady (lady C) told 'the maid' to get a drink and what she wanted. Lady C didn't use manners, just assumed that was the other woman's job based on the uniform she was wearing.

Lady A looked at her friend and I could tell she was wondering how the situation would be handled.

Lady B looked at lady C and said "Yes, ma'am." which is the correct thing for her to say under the circumstances.

What she used in this situation were the manners that her 'employers' expected from her in her 'role' as a maid.

How Are Manners and Loyalty Related?

I will explain using this quote from the end of "Part One of Politeness:Loyalty" :

"So loyalty.....means sticking by a commitment to do something and following through......letting those who are relying on you for whatever reason, know if you cannot do your bit and why."

By joining a team I had made a commitment to surf around 215 pages a day in order to achieve the quota.

I followed through and have surfed my 1500 pages a week nearly every week for the past 3 years.

I would let Adam know if something came up that meant I couldn't surf the weekly team Clean quota,  what was going on and how long I thought it might take.

By using manners when showing my team loyalty I have earned respect from my team leader and that means an aweful lot to me!

How Manners CAN Make A Huge Difference In Your Business

By using common manners when chatting and socializing with others online you will notice an increase in the number of subscribers you may get or some people that will join more than one of the programs that you advertise.

They seek YOU out!  (They look for the programs that you are a member of and follow you)

As I interacted with members in the Startxchange chat room while I surfed, I tried to remember people's names as we introduced ourselves and would jot their first name down next to their username so I could use it the next time I saw them.

If I asked a question I would say please and when someone answered I would thank them.

I would introduce people I knew to each other as well - "Hi Name1 (username1), I'd like you to meet my friend/team mate/downline Name2 (username2)"

Now I find that many of my Clean Living team mates are in my downlines in various programs some have joined 3+, subscribing to one of my lists or requesting my help in their business. So are some of the other friends I made through the chat room.

I also believe some people may have joined the team because of my manners.

So showing loyalty and manners in the everyday things

you do helps your business!

Thanks for reading!

Good one, There are alot of people that forget these because they are in a rush to get where they think the grass is greener on the other side.

I just wanted to add that these two articles come from a reflection on the early surfing years when I knew no one and had to learn alone what to do.

I spent months waiting for someone to say hello did you need a hand, instead of hi if you join me you will make....

Everything I do online for my business is measured by two important goal posts :
1. HOW is this (list/membership/product/service) useful for my business and
2. DOES it help me network with like minded individuals (people I can help, can help me, I can work with)

My decisions are never personal, I can still like you as a person even if your business is not useful to mine. :-) Soroya
