IMPORTANCE : IMPORTANCE The first thing that you do, with or before the introduction, is greet, as it sets the tone for the entire interaction. The importance of greeting well is the building up of a comfort level between the customer and you. This is always followed by the introduction of yourself which again is very important as the customer should understand your introduction well as they are about to discuss and get into a conversation. A good greeting can thaw a guest who is already in a bad mood.
