There are two ways to leverage your time. One way is to buy back your time at a lesser value. Let me ask you this, are you cleaning your own house? Are you doing your own bookkeeping? You can buy back that time by hiring someone who can do the job at lower rate than what you are worth. You can literally buy back hours and hours of time.
The second way to leverage your time is to get in front of more people. Yes, speaking in public. This is the key to selling. If you want more sales you need to get in front of more people.
When you speak to a group you can reach more people in the same amount of time. Imagine yourself speaking four times a week in front of a group of 25 people in your target market. In a month, this would add up to 100 more people you are in front of per month! Now suppose out of those 100 people, you received twenty-five hot sizzling leads. Remember these are prospects who came a spoke to you at the end of your talk. Let’s be conservative and say out of the twenty-five you closed twelve for the business. If one transaction was worth ,500 that would be a total of ,000 of extra revenue per month. Imagine if you spoke consistently four times per month for twelve months you would reach 1,200 more people than you are currently and would bring in an extra 6,000 in business. Just by adding this one marketing strategy to what you are already doing.
How cool is that?!
These are five of the BIGGEST benefits you get from public speaking and why you need to get out there and speak. There are also a multitude of personal benefits such as instant recognition, exotic travel, higher income, more confidence, being the go-to person in your industry, and more.
With public speaking, it doesn’t matter what business you are in, what matters is what you say, how you say it and where you say it. The first speaking tip is to learn how to eliminate the fear of speaking. This is what stop most people of doing presentations in the first place. Don’t let stage fright stop you from sharing your message with the world.
