I recently spoke to about 450 people at Mark Joyner’s Survival
Tactics Marketing Seminar. I spoke on the last day after many
fine speakers had gone before me.

My tip here is to listen to all the speakers before you whenever
you can. That way you can either refer back to what they said or
avoid duplicating things they said which would reflect poorly on
you.

In this case I was also able to pick out things from the other
speakers and play off them.

EXAMPLE: Superstar speaker Ted Nicholas said that advances in
health care and longevity would soon allow people to live to be
120 years old. He said he was going to throw a $10,000.00 seminar
on his 120th birthday.

I came on and said that not only was I going to throw a
$10,000.00 seminar on my 120th birthday, but that I was going to
give the audience members a big discount if they gave me a
deposit today. — Everyone cracked up.

So go early when you can and pay attention to the other speakers.
