A clean office gives a good first impression
Don’t judge a book by its cover, judge an office by how clean it is! This is what most of your customers and clients would be thinking as soon as they step through your door. Here is why good a first impression is so important in your business.
Why is making a first impression so important?
Well, this is a question that doesn’t really need to be answered, as most people and businesses will understand why a good first impression is more likely leads to something!
“You only get one chance to make a first impression”, this saying can’t be any clearer or easier to understand. Especially when it comes to your office looking clean and tidy when a potential client or customer is present.
What are the main things people pick up on?
Smell – The main thing that people will pick up on and relate to when walking into any room is the smell, and our noses can remember up to 50,000 scents! So, you don’t want your office remembered for having a bad smell, as this will give a negative feeling to the client or customer.
General Cleanliness– The cleanliness of your office is obviously another important factor. If there is a bin that is overflowing in the corner or coffee stains all over your carpets, your clients and customers may think that you don’t care.
You can be the best business in the world, but if you have a dirty office and a client or customer comes to visit, they would be more than likely inclined to “refuse to sign on the dotted line”.
