If you know how to play the media game you can get your name and
book in front of literally millions of people.

A select group of authors, consultants, speakers, information
marketers, and other entrepreneurs have been generating
hundreds of thousands dollars, of publicity for themselves while
everyone else have been fighting it out to sell their book one at
a time through every expensive and time consuming method they can
think of.

Albom, Bill Moyers, Stephen King, Caroline Kennedy, Howard Stern,
President Jimmy Carter, Mark Victor Hansen, Nelson DeMille, John

the media to pick up the phone and call you.

=> How to get published in the traditional manner and not get
taken advantage of.

=> Tips and techniques to generating “back of the room sales” to
maximize your revenue at speaking engagements.

=> How agents work, what they do and why you need to get them on
your side.

media sources.

Tom Antion: Asides

In the theater, an “aside” is something said to the audience that is not to be heard by the other actors. If the aside was delivered on a television sitcom, the actor would look right at the camera and talk to the viewers at home instead of talking to the other actors.

To a public speaker it means a temporary departure from the main theme or topic. If you get good at this technique, the audience will think you are a genius. The way it works is that you begin telling a story or delivering information on a certain topic. Then you go off on a tangent (aside) indirectly related to the main theme. When you have finished the aside, you pick up the main theme where you left off and keep right on going.

The audience may think you are lost or confused when you first leave the original topic, but when you return to the main line after the aside, they realize you are in total control. This is very impressive.

Great storytellers are able to take you down several auxiliary paths, but still move you along the main path from beginning to conclusion. I tell a story about some medical work I had done where the doctor said to me, “This will just pinch a little bit. ” This phrase sends me down a whole different path talking about how my dentist had said the same thing and then pushed the Novacaine needle up into my brain, twisted it around, and pulled it out. I then came back to the main line of the medical story until I got to the word gauze. This word sets off another tangential story about my mother ripping gauze off me. Then it is back to the main line again.

You can alert the audience of an upcoming aside by saying the word “incidentally” before you veer off the main path. Another good technique is to go to a different part of the stage when you do the aside. Get good at asides and you will add a new dimension to the way you tell your funny stories or deliver information.

Tom Antion: Simple Sells

I’ve come up with example after example over the past couple
years of how having a simple, yet professional website attracts
business better than a complicated flashy site. Again, this month
I’ve got an awesome example of a site that for a very tiny
investment has brought me an enormous return. That site is
http://www.public-speaking.org

This month it got in the very prestigious section of “Inc.
Magazine” called “Best of the Web.”  Not only did it get in the
section, it got the highest rating of all the other sites, some
of which were backed by extremely large corporations. You can
read the entire article here
http://www2.inc.com/search/23233.html

Folks, this didn’t happen by accident, although there is always
an element of good fortune when something like this occurs. My
experience has shown that gaining knowledge in your field usually
accelerates your good fortune.

The technique I used with this site was to prepare it
specifically for acceptance by Yahoo! the grandaddy of all the
search directories. It has a clean and simple appearance. It’s
extremely easy to navigate. The name is alphabetical so it gets
listed higher in the directory. It has a nice graphic banner with
the organization name on it. The site has many other nuances that
I teach in Butt Camp to secure a good Yahoo! listing. The only
thing at all that moves on the site is a pop up box that I only
recently put on to get more ezine subscribers.

Here are some of the comments from their panel of CEOs: “Quick
and easy to use. The glossary lists most of the important things
that all speakers should know.” “Excellent content.” They didn’t
say, “I was so impressed with a hard to load annoying Flash
presentation” now did they?

Get people that don’t know you, or that don’t know you well to go
through your website and pick it apart. Yes, it might hurt after
you’ve sunk tons of money into some fabulous artistic design, but
it’s going to hurt worse if no one comes to your site because
they can’t find it easily and if they come there and leave
immediately because they can’t figure out what to do.

Book Review

“The Shortcut to Persuasive Presentations” by Larry Tracy

I’m amazed by Larry Tracy. Larry was an accomplished speaker before I even started. He has the uncanny ability to meet you, learn a few things about you and give a PERFECT introduction as if he’d known you for years.

Larry has endorsements from President Ronald Reagan (the great communicator), Ambassadors and hundreds of other top government, military and political figures.

His book has a very interesting section called “Murder Boards”. This is a group of people that hit you with every hard question in the book BEFORE you do your actual presentation. . . . Talk about high level preparation.

One of Larry’s jobs was to explain government policy to some of the most demanding and hostile audiences in the country. He did this over 400 times. If you do what’s in this book, I don’t believe there is anything that could shake you up on stage.

Larry gives exact details on how to deal with difficult audiences and even how to lure debaters into saying things that undermine themselves to their supporters.

I also loved Larry’s explanation of “Primacy” and “Recency”. He totally made me realize how important openings and closings are.

You can’t go wrong with this book.

Tom Antion: Sensitive Audience Members

If you are planning to do a lively presentation that involves the
audience members, you must be careful of what you say at the
beginning of your speech.

Some audience members would rather have you sit down so they
could be the star on stage, but others dread the thought of even
being noticed while they are sitting in the audience.

Here is a critical phrase you can adapt and say during the
beginning of your presentation to help the sensitive members of
the audience relax and pay attention to your content.

“We’re going to have lots of fun and interaction today, but don’t
worry. You won’t be put on the spot to do anything you don’t want
to do.”

That simple phrase will help all of your audience members enjoy
your presentation without anxiety.
