How to Stay in Touch with Your Clients – Etiquette Certification

How to Stay in Touch with Your Clients – Etiquette Certification

Whether you are currently licensed and certified to teach Manners To Go or are thinking about starting your business soon, you may be interested in the links below.  So much is written about manners, etiquette, and social skills!  I thought it would be helpful to keep you posted and tell you how to use this information to stay in touch and build relationships with existing or potential clients.

Most every week, I take a look at the Wall Street Journal weekend edition.  I love it and look forward to seeing it every Sunday morning.  Many times it is alongside a special treat like a croissant or a super healthy quinoa waffle and a cup of tea.  Especially nice is the Wall Street Journal magazine which is inserted inside monthly.

There is a feature every month that is my favorite title, “The Columnists”.  Top influencers (WSJ refers to them as luminaries) are asked what a certain word means to them. This month, they asked the influencers their thoughts about the word manners!  You have to love all the attention to our favorite topic. From Lynn Wyatt to Fran Lebowitz, to Laura Dern – all weighed in on their thoughts and opinions.

Lynn Wyatt commented, “My husband and I have two grown grandchildren.  Good manners are as important to their education as their schooling.”

Laura Dern commented, “It’s always thrilling when I meet people, particularly men, whose manners are beautiful.”

Chris Blackwell, CEO of Island Records, commented, “I’ve conducted lots of negotiations in the music business at different periods – at times when I had one foot in the grave and one on a banana skin – where it was important how the negotiations came through.  In all those cases, I always believed in exhibiting good manners.”

Here is the link to the WSJ article.

How to Get an Etiquette Certification in 2022

How to Get an Etiquette Certification in 2022

Etiquette Certification – There are many reasons to become an entrepreneur.  One of them is the value you can bring to the world.

Getting an etiquette certification is one of the greatest reasons to start a business because our children need your passion and expertise.

They need a new mindset.  They need someone like you to help them improve their self-esteem and confidence. 

Acquiring an etiquette certification is easier than you think. Yes, it takes time and some “grit” and we all know you have that.

At Manners To Go, we are proud that we have the greatest etiquette certification. We have a relevant, non-judgmental fun approach to teaching:

  • Life skills
  • Character 
  • Behavior skills
  • Confidence
  • Self-esteem
  • Etiquette
  • Social skills

Manners and etiquette classes are taught in many different types of venues.

For me, it brings me such joy to see my licensees out there teaching. I follow them all on Instagram!  Check below to see April’s posts.  She owns Redstick Refinement.

At Manners To Go we believe every child deserves to learn good manners.  Yes, often you will see etiquette classes taught in the country or dining clubs.  Of course, this offers a beautiful setting. 

And then there are public and charter schools that need you to teach important life skills.

As I look back at the times when I first started my etiquette business, some of the most rewarding has been in the public school classroom.

Children really light up when they learn eye contact and when and how to use it.

And then there are the many role-playing activities with conversation skills.  Children need to learn how to communicate now after the pandemic….and this has become the most important module!  

Children need your help to learn how to communicate with others. They need guidance on how to develop friendships.  

Becoming Licensed and Certified is the easy part.

We offer two types of training:
  • A Virtual LIVE option 
  • A Two-Day Immersion (you choose the dates and location)

And once you choose, your journey to entrepreneurship begins.

Many of you want a business of your own, some of you want to earn money, and others want the creative outlet of giving back.   Not a surprise that you can have both!

Six Things I Wish I Had Known Before Starting My Etiquette Business

Six Things I Wish I Had Known Before Starting My Etiquette Business

Starting my etiquette business has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me.

Being an entrepreneur today is interesting, fulfilling, and challenging and I love every second of it.

Today’s article shares my experiences and what I would do differently if I were starting now.

Being an etiquette consultant, coach, expert, etc., provides so much value.  Children and adults need the skills we are teaching.  

We change lives in a way that matters from childhood to adulthood.

Children feel more comfortable and confident when they learn good manners and life skills 

How do I  Become a Certified Etiquette Consultant?

This is a question I am often asked and one which I love to answer.  When asked, I immediately relate because we both recognize not only the need for manners in our society, but we obviously share a passion for teaching.

Let’s be honest, passion is absolutely necessary when starting a business, but you also need to have a plan on how to grow and be successful in this arena.

I have compiled a list of six things I wish I had known when starting my own etiquette business.

How to Start Your Own Etiquette Business

  1. Good manners and knowing HOW to teach the subject are very different things.  It pays to have a plan, not only a business plan but a LESSON PLAN.  You can go to Barnes and Noble or find a free handout online, but trust me, it just doesn’t work.  Children are smart and savvy, so have a lesson plan to teach from that work.
  2. Keep your eyes on your own paper. Yes, you must know what is going on with your competition, but keep moving forward.  You know what you are capable of doing. You must be confident in your abilities.  Go out and make it happen your way.
  3. Network and be resourceful. Get out of your home office and network.  Everywhere you go there is literally an opportunity to teach manners or to connect with someone. This is not a controversial subject. You will be pleasantly surprised how many will want to talk to you about it. Not only look for connections for your business but also look for ways to connect with others.  Be resourceful.  If a private instruction client mentions she needs a math tutor, have a name to give her that is in your list of contacts.
  4. Start now and build your email list.  Even if you start with your best friend and older sister, it is a start. Don’t underestimate this important step.
  5. Stay focused.  Focus on one thing and do it well.  For example, if you are in the midst of planning your website complete it before going on to the next task.
  6. Take action.  Don’t let this overwhelm you.  Take one small step forward to create a business you love.

How am I Trained by Manners To Go?

How am I Trained by Manners To Go?

How am I trained after I purchase the Manners To Go program” is actually one of the most frequently asked questions.  It is a really good question and I am here to give you all the details.  In fact, the way you are trained to start your own business teaching manners to children is one of the most acclaimed and highly sought-after reasons to become certified by Manners To Go.  

Read the testimonials to see what others are saying about how they received “above and beyond” what they expected.  More about that later, but you know the saying…” the proof is in the pudding”!

Let’s get to it.  How are you trained by Manners To Go?

How am I Trained and Certified by Manners To Go?

We offer two options for you to be trained and certified to teach manners to children.

One option is to be trained via “live” video. A second is to be trained by manners to go in person. You will discover more details about both training options in this article.

Here are the Details Regarding the Video Training by Manners To Go

– 1 –

You are trained via private, real-time (live) video. That’s right. It is as if you are sitting across the desk from me. My camera is on and you can see me.  You have the option to turn on your video camera.  Some do.  Some don’t.  It is your choice.  Mine is always on during our call so you can see me “live” sitting in my office.  If I am having a bad hair day, you can see it!  It is that clear.

During the call, you will be able to view my screen as well. This way, we can view the marketing materials together.

-2-

You schedule the training calls. In order for you to become certified, you must complete at least four-six one-hour training sessions.  You choose the dates and times of the training sessions.  Some choose to schedule a session once a week.  Some choose twice a week.  The program is customized according to your timeframe.

blank

Of course, ongoing support and training are always available to you during the three-year license term. Many of our licensees choose to continue their training after the initial calls. Some take a month or so to complete the marketing efforts and then connect with me so we can review certain tasks together.

Evidence has shown that those who stay in touch with us are the most successful. We encourage you to stay in touch and keep the communication open and ongoing.

In fact, a licensee was in touch with me over the weekend as she navigated a snowstorm and a big manners event that was booked on the exact day of the blizzard! What to do and how to handle it was top of mind. We communicated by phone calls and texts.

She was able to successfully make the trip and the event was very well attended. In fact, all eighteen children were in attendance.

-3-

I must tell you, that a big selling point about the Manners To Go program is that it is customized for your needs.  During our calls, the focus is on YOU and YOUR business. We discuss your website.  Also, discuss the fees that you will charge.  We discuss your logo.  Anything that is on your mind, let’s talk about it.

And yes, many times we schedule training in the evenings and weekends. Many of our licensees are still working and need to have their training “after hours”.

We also have licensees all over the world and accommodate different time zones.

-4-

You receive organized marketing guides to download before each call.  You have a visual workbook/guide in front of you that we discuss in detail….together.  Templates, marketing materials, and videos are all provided so that you receive a world-class relevant program and curriculum to start your business teaching manners to children.

-5-

If you choose to have your training via video calls, you do not have the cost of traveling to a location to attend a program.  This saves you valuable time and money.

Manners To Go In-Person Training (Immersion)

One Saturday afternoon, I had such a lovely conversation with a potential licensee.

We spoke about all the things….etiquette, her background, why manners matter, why children need them today….etc. etc. etc.

Actually, to me, it was the perfect way to spend part of my Saturday.

She asked a really good question, “which training should I choose”?

My answer to her was this: “how do you like to learn”?  When you are considering any type of training, whether it is to learn a new computer skill, creative writing techniques, or learning a new language, you must consider your personal preference. 

My conversation with her is the inspiration for this post.

I could hear the first choice in her voice. She came alive when we started talking about the in-person/immersion option.  

In my eyes, all of my licensees are special.  THEY make the experience beautiful, charming, valuable, eclectic, and interesting. 

Over the years, we have had our in-person training at beautiful locations.

The in-person training are highly customized and personal. We spend two intense days together. You learn all the aspects of operating your new business.

Your dining tutorials span across four meals together and include breakfasts, lunches, and afternoon tea (when/where available). The costs of these meals are included in your fee.

Of course, after the intense training, video follow-up calls are always available to you.

Social Etiquette Training – Beginners Guide

Social Etiquette Training – Beginners Guide

What is social etiquette training and how does this fit with teaching manners to children?

At Manners To Go, we believe every child deserves to learn good manners and life skills.

There are many names for etiquette training and classes:

  • Etiquette classes
  • Manners Classes
  • Social Skills
  • Social Etiquette Training
  • Life Skills Education
  • Character Building
  • Social Emotional Learning
  • Emotional Intelligence

What is Social Etiquette?

Social etiquette is how you handle yourself when functioning in daily life.  Skills such as:

  • Eye contact
  • Making others feel comfortable
  • Being kind and polite
  • Introducing others
  • Respecting others choices
  • Dining etiquette 
  • Table manners

Choosing to use these social skills helps us to stay peaceful and act in a respectful manner toward ourselves and others.

When to Use Social Etiquette Skills?

Today, we use all types of modern social etiquette.  For example:

1. Social Media

  • Virtual meetings
  • Texting
  • Commenting on others’ posts
  • TikTok 
  • Videos

And when we use the above, there are many teachable moments.  Children need our help with all of the above.

They are all using social media and starting at such a young age.  We can teach them how to use it respectfully for themselves and how to treat others on social media platforms.

Children use virtual offerings too. Online learning has made an impact on our youth.  Respectful behavior is still needed virtually.

2. Human Connections

Now more than ever, children need to learn to connect with each other – in person.

This is a very important life skill.  As they grow into adulthood and start their professional careers, they need to build relationships.

Social Etiquette Skills such as:

  • Eye contact
  • Greetings 
  • Introducing others
  • Conversation skills
  • Positive body language 

These skills help us make a human connection.  It helps us to connect and be human.  Using these skills helps us with connecting with friends and family. 

We can help others connect socially too when using our good manners.

How to Teach Children Social Etiquette?

Remember, children are always watching us.  They are watching us during the school day, at the airport, in the drive-thru….etc.  

Are you making eye contact, treating others respectfully, greeting the person in the grocery store checkout line, saying “excuse me and thank you”?

Children learn by watching.
