What to expect
- Meet and greets are typically 1-3 minutes
- Questions should not require long answers
- Do not ask inappropriate questions or make the other party uncomfortable
Be prepared: write some questions or thoughts in advance
To avoid getting overwhelmed during your meet and greet, you may want to plan out a few questions in advance. Your time is limited so make sure not to ask questions that require long answers. Try to choose one main question you would like to ask and/or one thought you would like to share. This will allow you to gather your thoughts and be prepared.
Examples of how to ask questions:
- You may ask a simple question, like, “What inspired you to make this film/create this album/write this book?”
- Or, you may ask a more specific question that may be obscure to show you are a true fan. For example, you may ask, “Why do you always end your songs with two claps?” or “How did it feel to work with Robert Downey Jr. in Avengers?”
- Remember why you are there in the first place. Having meaningful interactions already in mind will help you refrain from screaming “OMG I LOVE YOU ON TV,” when you may really want to have a deeper conversation.
Arrive early and get comfortable
Try to enter your meet and greet at least a half-hour prior to the scheduled time of your event. The queue for your meet and greet is first-come-first-serve. This will also ensure you have time if you encounter any issues with your internet connection.
Make sure you are in a quiet room without any distractions. You don’t want anything interrupting your experience once it begins.
Relax and have fun
A meet and greet should be an exciting and friendly experience.
- Try to maintain open body language. Let your excitement come through by smiling. Show you are thrilled to meet them.
- Speak calmly and clearly, just like you would speak to a friend. Take a deep breath once it’s your turn to speak. Greet them with a “hi” and a wave.
Be respectful an understanding
There is never a situation where it’s ok to be disrespectful. Treat the other party with dignity like you would any other person. Remember they’re people just like you.
Unfortunately, there are a zillion things that can go wrong with any meet and greet situation. It’s just life. The other party could be late for the event or maybe there’s an internet connection issue.
