RapportBoosting Tip #1 – When to use WE vs. I

Hi everyone! Dani Apgar here, co-founder of RapportBoost.AI. Here in our LA office.  At RapportBoost our purpose is to educate brands on how to have the best online conversations with their customers.

Today I’m sharing a RapportBoosting tip with you!

RapportBoosting tips are bits of wisdom I’ve gleaned from our platform analyzing millions of chat & SMS conversations for brands.

Okay, the tip for today is when to use WE vs I in short-form communication:

Saying “we” or “our” as in “we are here to help” and “our team is dedicated to your satisfaction” can be powerful because it gives the impression of a large and accessible team.

However, at at times, it is better to show that you are personally engaged by using words like “I” and “I will” or “I can”.  Why? Because taking direct personal responsibility and showing personal engagement can be powerful in quickly making a one-to-one connections with the visitor so RapportBuilding!

Thanks for listening to this RapportBoosting tip #1 on We vs I. I’ll be sharing more tips down the road. Please feel free to comment below.
