Great speakers seem to present to an audience effortlessly, without a drop of sweat on their brow, not a flutter in their voice, and no bungled words. They hold us in awe, captivate us, leave us hanging on their every word and easily persuade us to respond to anything they ask of us.
If you are one of these great speakers, you’re one of a tiny percentage of people who are not afraid to speak in public, one of the top four fears Americans acknowledge.
The tragedy is that, for most of us, our careers or businesses call upon us to speak every single day, to clients, suppliers, the Boss, fellow colleagues and conference delegates. Because we have no idea how our words and nonverbal communications impact our audience, we lose sales and fail to attract new clients or earn referrals.
Great news: you can learn to overcome the fear of public speaking. You can develop confidence and passion for promoting your ideas and your products. You can deliver powerful speeches, sales presentations or marketing seminars and get undreamed of results.
First you must learn the essential skill of grabbing your listeners’ attention with the first words you speak. You then keep their attention by wrapping your content in stories and experiences that your audience can relate to, that take your message into your listener’s heart, where your sale is made. When they believe that you understand their problem, you will build vital rapport and trust and establish yourself as the expert who can solve their problem.
Know your audience, give them a presentation jam-packed with powerful benefits, and you will easily get their commitment to action. When you ask for the sale, be prepared for a surge of interest in your product or service. Capitalize on your new speaking skills by offering more information and solutions through seminars, CDs, books and study materials.
These techniques will help you build your business in ways you never dreamed possible. You will gain amazing benefits in both your career and your life. Learning to speak persuasively will reward you over and over again.
