Make people want you! ( which will attract them to your business.. duh!)
You’ve suddenly spotted someone across a crowded room, and want to let them know you’re interested. There are a number of techniques to help cultivate that all-important physical rapport.
Sometimes we act boring because we are afraid of being seen as “weird” or “different”. So we have the same the mind-numbingly boring social script of “What do you do?” and “Where are you from?”. We don’t share how we really feel, we hide our quirks and try to fit in. But you know what? Fitting in sucks. It’s dull and unattractive!
In dating it is about physical availability “Will this person mate with me?”
In business it is about economic and intellectual availability. “Will this person work with me?”
The best way to show availability whether it is at a networking event, party, business meeting or date is by demonstrating availability. Show people you want to connect, talk and start a relationship. Another way to show that you’re interested in someone is to use the four-second glance. Hold someone’s gaze for four seconds, look away, and then look back. It might sound like an unnervingly long time to look at someone, but any less than this might be interpreted as a casual (rather than meaningful) look.
The most attractive thing you can do to attract someone’s attention is simply to smile. People often list the smile as the most attractive feature about their partner. And it’s easy to see why. A genuine smile transforms your features and makes you seem like a fun, happy person to be around. Moody, meaningful gazes certainly have their place in the movies, but there’s a danger that you’ll look like you’re in a bad temper.
