Business Hack: Fact About Me Of The Day

fact about me of the day

Over 8 years ago I created a business hack that has allowed me to easily build rapport while doing sales prospecting and sending out emails. It’s called “Fact About Me of the Day” and it appears at the bottom of my email signature.


The concept is simple, write a new Fact About Me of the Day every day. The reason I do this is because it shows that I’m not just some sort of robot, which is especially important when you are doing sales. Many of the people I reach out to get hit up by tons of people every day. To try and separate myself from the herd I add my own personal touch that allows me to seem more human. On top of that, you never know when something you put in you Fact About Me of the Day actually resonates with someone and starts the conversation and gets them to respond back to you.

One of my Fact About Me of the Day a while ago was, “I want to go cage diving with sharks.” It just so happens that the CMO of the company I wanted to do business with had just gotten back from cage diving with sharks in South Africa and responded back telling me how awesome of an experience it was. We shot a few emails back and forth without even talking about what I was actually reaching out for. Once we finally did get to talking about the actual substance of the email some rapport had been built, the barriers were down, and the sales process was much easier.

By the way, I just went cage diving with great white sharks on my honeymoon and it was beyond amazing. Check out this video I shot from the cage.

For the people that I interact with on a regular basis Fact About Me of the Day is a way of allowing them to get to know me better, easier. People want to do business with people they like. I credit much of the success I’ve had in business to the relationships I’ve built and the ease at which I build rapport. Since it takes time to build relationships and get to know someone these one sentence Fact About Me of the Day are a way of continually working on that.

So what should you put in you Fact About Me of the Day? It can be literally anything you want. Remember, this is about you and giving others an opportunity to know you better. There’s 365 days in the year so you’ve got a lot of opportunities to mix it up. For me I do a combination of things I like or don’t like, sports observations, stuff from my childhood, pop culture, music, food, travel, pets, things that make me laugh, whatever. There are no rules to this, let your creativity shine.

The Fact About Me of the Day that got the greatest response was, “I would never buy anything from Jared’s because their commercials are awful.” That day I got five people who commented back telling me how they totally agree and can’t stand them either. Five responses might not seem like much but if you get one person to comment back about your Fact About Me of the Day it’s a great success. Five is an engagement and rapport building home run! Remember, the name of the game is building relationships.

From the feedback I’ve received people enjoy reading my Fact About Me of the Day. It’s quirky, different, and fun. I even get emails back asking why I didn’t change my Fact About Me of the Day from the day before (really). I couldn’t recommend this business hack enough as I’ve seen the good that can come from it.

Now it’s time for you to take action. I want you to tweet me a Fact About Me of the Day about you to @RobCressy on Twitter. It can be about anything, just do one and see how it feels. Hopefully after doing one you’ll feel compelled to do more. The people you do business with will thank you.
