We all know how important first impressions are, and psychologists say that first impressions snap into place within the first 7 seconds. Humans are visual creatures; we tend to get attached to our impressions and find it very difficult to change our opinion. Whether you’re meeting a person for the first time, or seeing a business for the first time, first impressions are equally as important.
Put yourself into the shoes of a customer. Imagine driving up to your business for the first time, whether it’s to browse for ideas, shop the products, or meeting with a staff member for any particular reason. Now imagine that as you’re pulling up, you notice that the lawn is in disarray, old leaves have blown into a heap on the sidewalk, and there is loose gravel in the parking lot that’s clearly been there since winter. Obviously, your initial impression of this business leads you to believe that they don’t care. It almost doesn’t matter what they do from then on out, because the first impression you developed of them is negative.
