MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Take into account the context in which your audience consume your content. Focus on humanizing the metrics of your audience: 

  1. hearts, instead of eyeballs; 
  2. listeners instead of downloads; 
  3. Meaningful conversations instead of article views.

Whether you like it or not, building an audience for your work is a performance.

  • Amplify your personality - You don’t have to change who you are, you have to become more of who you are.
  • Be provocative, with a purpose - Make a statement. Share a message that matters to you.
  • Have a bold & compelling point of view - If you try to appeal to everyone, you will appeal to no one. Be okay with pissing some people off.
  • Harness the power of stories - Too often we think that our story is not worth telling because we don’t have a big audience.
  • Give people a reason to find you interesting - Your accomplishments on paper only matter to people who have no other reason to find you interesting. Your expertise in something doesn't make you interesting. Your story and the way you tell it, does.
  • Emotional Resonance, heart & soul -Your emotional commitment to what you are doing will be translated directly into your work.

Building an audience for your work is a performance.

  1. Amplify your personality
  2. be provocative, but with a purpose
  3. Have a compelling point of view
  4. Harness the power of stories
  5. Give people a reason to find you interesting
  6. Add in emotional resonance

31 STASHED

You don't need to be defensive with critics. Also - not all critics are the same. If you can’t handle getting tough feedback from people who care about you, it becomes difficult to take it from people you don’t know.

Respect the expectations of your audience. Experiment, but retain the essence.

30 STASHED

Vulnerability creates emotional resonance, which in turn makes our content contagious. But don't treat audience as a therapist. Use this very wisely. If there is no redemption, no growth, or a lesson worth sharing, then it’s not ready for public consumption.

Habits are the Compound Interest of Self Improvement

  • Choose a theme. You must know who your audience are and think of ONE thought you want to leave your audience so that they will have a greater tendency to remember it.
  • Utilize theme reinforcers or points to support the central idea (theme) they are trying to get across.
  • Wrap it all together. You can arrange it first in outline form. Numbering your points could also help the audience remember where you are. Always return to theme and leave everyone with an impact in the climax of the speech.
  • Quotes, resources and an unconventional idea can be incorporated to speeches to gain the attention of your audience.
