Learn AboutYour Audience Who/Where are they?What is their personality like?How/Where do they consume? How/Where do they engage?
The Importance of WordsTreat this part very seriously. It is a myth that successful communication relies mainly on delivery style. What you say is just as important as how you say it.
Certain words have great psychological impact on us. Theyaddress our basic human desires and our emotional needsand wants. They compel us to pay attention and take action.Successful copywriters use certain words to add persuasivepower to their ads.
DescriptionSpecificity can result from descriptive language.Which dessert would get your attention faster? Something described as “A sinful combination of bourbon-soaked vanilla beans and fresh raspberries with a chocolate ganache surprise”. Something described as “Chocolate Dessert”. Get your audience salivating
ClarityAvoid vague, nebulous corporate-speak. Nothing puts an audienceoff more than uncommitted,detached phrases.
AuthenticityMuch of the language in corporations today is clichéd,vague, and pretentious. When speaking, be concise,clear, and authentic – get to the human side of language.
Call to actionIf you end with a call to action, make it clear and specific.Your audience should know exactly what they are called todo and have reasons for taking that course of action.Leave the participants with a memorable comment orquestion that ties directly back to your main point.
Leave Them Wanting More Most messages should end in such a way thatparticipants are inclined to crave more informationyou may share with them later. When appropriate, leave the audience at a climax: promise that in a future message you will provide additional useful information. The human brain seeks closure. Participants will be inclined to return to something that has not been solved completely.
