This week's Tip - Jim's Pro Tip # 140 - Make People feel Comfortable!
If you have a larger booth or if you’re planning on getting into some longer conversations in your booth, then do things to make people comfortable. Add comfortable chairs, add extra thick padding under your carpet, and even have snacks and bottles of water. Anything to make it inviting and have people want to stick around.
