In a recent newsletter, we talked about how simply remembering to say "thank you" is a competitive advantage for your business.
Did you know that there is also great power in the word "please?" You'll be surprised how often the answer is "yes" in business if you simply ask--remembering to say please, of course!
"Thanks for coming in today. Please come again."
"I enjoyed your presentation. May I please have a copy?"
"Please contact me if I may be of further service."
"Please let us know if we could help your friends and neighbors."
"Please share this coupon with your friends."
"Please like us on Facebook."
"May I share your content on my website, please?"
Of course, the response won't always be "yes." But you'll never know if you don't ask.
