Don’t tell it, sell it


Today’s twip on twitter is:

#prestip: Giving the same presentation repeatedly? Remember you always have to sell it not just tell it. http://digg.com/u173rk

What is the difference between telling it and selling it?

Telling it, is when you stand up and say the words. It most often happens when you have done the same or similar presentations many time before. You know the material backwards and so you just stand up and say it. The problem is you tend to lose all the emotion from your voice. It isn’t new and exciting to your mind, so it is said in a way which isn’t new and exciting to your audience.

Whenever you give a presentation you have to perform it. You have to show that you care about what you are saying and put the emotion in to your voice.
