Online oppportunity for offline marketers

Communicating beats techonology everytime

There is a tremendous opportunity for business to market using webinars and teleseminars. In these uncertain times people crave insights, tips and perspective. Many buisness owners are already used to presenting themselves at networking meetings. So they might have developed their 30 second and 3 minute introductions. Offline marketers learn how to talk to people in person while many online experts hate talking to people.

Here is the advantage for offline marketers for using online marketing.

Many of the online marketing experts are terrible public speakers. For example, I just attemped to listen to a webinar that was peppered with "ums" "and ahs" and "you guys".

I couldn't stand it - so I stopped listening. It might have been the holy grail - but the experience was too painful.

The lesson in that is that even if you have the answers - your audience won't listen if you tick them off.

The second lesson is that, it is not about the technology. It is about using superior commuication skills.

Effective Executive Speaking

Effective Executive Speaking

Effective Executive Speaking is the flagship program for the Canadian Management Centre (CMC) based in Toronto, Canada. CMC is an a affliate of the American Management Association, (AMA).

The two primary instructors for this program in Toronto for the past decade have been John Robert Colombo and George Torok. Both were mentored by Canada's presentation guru - Peter Urs Bender.

At one time Peter Urs Bender was the lead instructor in this program. He would start the day off by whipping the particpants into a frency. He would point out his personal challenges of being foreign born, from a family of accountants and blessed with dyslexia.

Despite these challenges, Peter became known as Canada's presentation guru and and a best selling author.

Effective Executive Speaking is a three day intensive program for senior executives who want to transform their presentation skills.

In the past this program has run as often as six times a year. In 2009 this program will only run two times. Register now.

Nouns are for wimps

Nouns are for wimps

Wake up. Stop becoming awake. Your abuse of nouns could be killing your presentation. Lynda Goldman's comments about writing apply equally to speaking.


Lynda Goldman's Communication Capsules

Is your writing bogged down with nouns?

Some writers become addicted to endlessly transform verbs into nouns. For example:

Instead of saying conclude, they say: Reach a conclusion.

This habit makes sentences longer and weaker, and slows the reader. Some people describe this kind of writing as really, really boring.
Inject vigorous verbs
Instead of wordy noun phrases, embrace vigorous verbs. Notice how efficient, clean and forceful these verbs sound, after their muddy noun phrases:

Conduct a discussion of = discuss
Create a reduction in = reduce
Give an analysis of = analyze
Give consideration to = consider
Take action on = act

So, to keep your readers engaged, kick the noun habit. Take action with vigorous verbs!

Facing tight deadlines? An in-house writer who is overloaded?
