There’s nothing like the high that comes from delivering a great presentation.
It’s natural to want to extend that good feeling and make the most of positive feedback.
Unless you have an advertising company or public relations firm looking after things, it’s important for you to “systemize” the news of our presentation success.
Here are some ways to make the most of that positive audience feedback.
Ask for a two-sentence testimonial via email or text, then screenshot to create a .jpg
Share the .jpg on social media, your website or in outbound emails to meeting planners
Take photos of you with happy clients, especially titled or noteworthy people
Do video recordings of your talks (capture audience laughter and expressions if you can)
Request a recommendation on LinkedIn, then screen shot it and re-purpose as above
“It ain’t braggin’ if you done it”
Baseball pitcher, Dizzy Dean, is credited with the above quotations and helping us understand the difference between promotion and aggrandizement.
Robert Cialdini, author of Influence, writes that social proof is one of the most effective forms of marketing.
So, don’t keep your light under a bushel. Get the word out about your great presentations.
