Should you tap people on the shoulder?

Posted by Ilise Benun on

Last week, I made a valuable connection with an Internet entrepreneur because I tapped him on the shoulder while he was getting pizza

I realized that, at the same event, I also shoulder-tapped Mark Hirsch, Founder of CreativeWorx. When Mark stood up to ask a question, I remembered that I had spoken to him a few months back about new program, TimeTracker (which automatically tracks time for you). Try it free and use my promo code (TTIBA) for a bonus!

Mark and I hadn’t met in person—but there he was, seated directly in front of me, and before I knew it, my hand reached up and tapped him on the shoulder and handed him my card. 


The lesson: shoulder-tapping works!
I’d conversed with two great connections—all because I tapped them on the shoulder.

I’m not suggesting we go around invading people’s personal space, but a polite shoulder tap did get the job done.

What do you think? Is tapping someone on the shoulder impolite? Or is it a good tool to get someone’s attention?
