Ways That Work, While You’re Out Working -
Passive Marketing For Speakers

____________________________________________________

403. There is no such thing as true passive marketing. Passive marketing takes up-front work to set in place along with maintenance along the way. But you can, and should put something in place that has a generous payoff with a minimal amount of effort.

404. The most popular passive marketing strategy is exposure through articles and the press

405. Write a monthly column for: newspaper, newsletters, magazines, e-zines, websites.

406. Create products, all with your contact information. A good product will be solider marching though the years, bringing you leads years from now. Your products should always talk about you in your others roles: speaker, consultant, coach, etc.

407. Send your products to everyone who might do a reviews and/or interviews.

408. Provide reprints of articles on subjects which interest your customers as a free gift (with your contact information).

409. Create a business size card with the 3 or 5 main points that you want them to remember, also with your contact information. Give them out at your talks. Encourage them to go over the points several times a week. A card they keep in their wallet because of how it helps them, will insure they never forget how to reach you.

What to Say When …
You Stumble over the Pronunciation of a Name or Word

____________________________________________________

(following all from "What to Say When You're Dyin' On the Platform!" (Lilly Walters, for McGraw Hill)

What to Do

It’s only mispronouncing people’s names that will get you into serious trouble. The audience will just get a good laugh if you mispronounce something else. If you’re holding a training session in which you often call on people, you will ONLY get to slaughter their names two or three times before they lose their good humor.


What to Say

___
FROM Terry Paulson, licensed psychologist and author of the popular books

Later on I’ll pass out printed translations of that sentence.
(End with a Swedish garble.)

To help you, the rest of my speech will be dubbed in English.

Some days I speak on optimal performance; other days I can’t even say it.
___

FROM —Bob Burg, speaker and author, on business networking.

I speak in a high-pitch reverse, as though I’m backing up a tape in fast rewind speed.
___

FROM —Alan Pease, Australia trainer and speaker onsales and negotiation techniques

I just spent $1000 on my eyes, and now my mouth’s not working.
___

FROM —Tom Ogden, master magician and creativity workshop leader

I got my tongue caught in my eyetooth and I couldn’t see what I was saying.
I just washed my tongue and I can’t do a thing with it.
___

FROM —Tom Antion, speaker and author of "Make Em' Laugh" training program

How do you say thee name? Let me count the ways!

What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet … but at least I can pronounce “rose.”
___

FROM —George Goldtrap, an actor, speaker and writer
(Indicating my teeth are false—or loose.)
You just can’t buy these things at Kmart!
___

FROM -—Roger Langley, the “Dean of Comedy College”
These new plastic tongues are no good.
_____
