Global partners, distance team members and virtual vendors – all demand one thing. Effective presentation skills for effective communication. Do you have the right training to communicate successfully in a global marketplace?
In my experience, far too many speakers at conferences and seminars fail to pay attention to this important part of their presentation. Does it matter? Does it affect the way an audience may perceive you and what you have to say? You bet it does, as Lucky Luc would say “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression”. So why leave the first impressions people have of you to chance?
Help your clients. Aside from making huge amount of money, your other goal in launching your high ticket coaching programs is to impress your clients. You can easily do this by doing all your might in helping them to improve the quality of their lives. Share a slice of your expertise to help them resolve their pressing issues or offer them the best answers to their burning questions. You can also help them learn new skills or empower them to do things on their own by offering them step-by-step guides. If you are able to do all of these, you can be assured that your clients will feel very happy about your offering that they might recommend it to their friends and family members.
First thing first, the managers need to get their attitude right. No doubt they are leaders but they also need to learn, unlearn and relearn. They must think positively. If their presentation skills are poor, they are advised to accept criticisms and they have to turn their weaknesses into strengths. They have fear on public speaking. Hence, they need to overcome the fear with courage. They have to think about constructive ways to improve their skills. They are encouraged to join any training or workshop which focuses on developing presentation training. They can also join public speaking course which enables them to practice more in front of people.
Use a downward inflection at the end of a sentence. Don’t say, “More and more people are composting than ever before?” You’re telling them, not asking them. This is a bad habit a lot of people have, even experienced speakers. Don’t be guilty of doing this or you’ll sound wishy-washy and unsure of yourself. A fatal flaw for speakers.
Number 9. Work hard – very hard. Be the first one to work and the last one to leave. When you work on a project try to get it done efficiently and effectively. Make working hard a habit. Become known as the person who works harder and smarter than all others within your department.
Widely promote your products. Give your products the exposure they need to entice more people to buy. Advertise them using popular and effective advertising tools which include search engine marketing, paid placement, blog marketing, article marketing, ezine publishing, etc.
