I’ve spoken to hundreds of people online over the years and I’ve noticed a definite pattern in those I keep in touch with and those I forget about.
Don’t be that person, you know who I’m talking about…1.
) The first message is everything! A well thought out message which shows they’ve read my profile goes so much further than a generic ‘Hi.’ 2.
) Ask Questions! I love it when I’m not the only one asking questions, It shows you’re interested. If I ask how you are, ask me how I am too! 3.) Reply in a reasonable amount of time.
I don’t ask that you reply instantly every time, that would be ridiculous! But at least try to reply within a day or just tell me if you’re busy. 4.) Chase me up.
If you enjoyed the conversation then chase it up the next day, don’t be afraid to message first. Don’t be that person. What do you love or hate about speaking to people online?
