Want More Sales? .... No Sir!


#42

I never called my client’s sir or anything like that. I think that is not necessary for this. You can call by their name.


#43

Spot on, advice taken


#44

you nailed it! i saw some of this gig few days ago


#45

I agreed with you man


#46

Thanks. But remember …. leave out the word “man”. You don’t know whether or not I am a man. That is what the post is all about. :wink:


#47

well said. I strongly agree with you. Everyone suggest that call the buyers as sir but I think it’s not necessary at all. You show good behave with them that’s enough.


#48

If you absolutely need to call them anything, just reply to them using their username.


#49

So much truth!! :sunglasses:


#50

Maybe better use “hello human”


#51

I always use “My Friend” best option to when it comes to this kind of gender issue


#52

But you’re not really friends with a potential buyer, and it could come across as being a bit creepy TBH.

As @j6nyc6 said, just use the username - so much easier! :slightly_smiling_face:


#53

lol talking to some one using username is far more creepier since some people have creepy usernames :rofl:


#54

@mclabzsolutions if I were doing business with you I would say “Hello Mclabz, thanks for reaching out. How can I help you today?”

Or would you rather me say “Hello dear, what can I do for you?” or “What’s up buddy, how can I be of service?”


#55

@j6nyc6

since I have a legit name its not a problem :stuck_out_tongue:


#56

It still works even if your name was Nonbonmonlon…”Hello Nonbonmonlon.” Lol


#57

If you find their usernames creepy, that’s fine - they obviously didn’t because they picked them. Or maybe they are creepy because they want them to be, which is also fine. :slightly_smiling_face:

I know if anybody addressed me as ‘my friend’ I’d run a mile. :wink:


#58

Whenever random strangers called me “My Friend”, they were trying to sell me stuff I wasn’t interested in, and they tended to be very persistent about it, too.

If a random stranger calls me “friend”, that’s an immediate red flag and, usually, a sign that they’re trying to manipulate me into something. I immediately see them as possibly dishonest, and do my best to stay away from them.
