The Clubhouse “After Party” for Super Charge Sunday in the Super Charge with Emily Club was dynamic with intriguing insights and wisdom shared by the attendees on the topic of virtual speaking and maximizing our reach.
Here are some highlights:
Wendi: Practice speaking on Clubhouse – Speaking is valuable for any profession, some topics could include sharing tips, book reviews, making a contribution in an area of interest and sharing; Repurposing content so that you can “drip” it in multiple locations and at multiple times – using the same content piece to optimize your keywords for SEO; focus on the message – create one time, share multiple times.
Emily: Embrace the process and be patient with it. Be comfortable with the social media platform that you are sharing on and do not ignore your personality and what works for you. It’s important to have an organic and natural approach to content and the material for your presentations. People identify with authenticity. Always take time to reflect on what really matters to you – that fuels the passion and provides context for connection.
Alex: Making great connections on Clubhouse are beneficial as virtual events continue to grow and gain more traction. Some of the benefits from virtual events include networking that can result in collaborative partnerships.
Taila: Just started her business and has been feeling isolated from the pandemic and is happy to connect on Clubhouse. The motivation for her business came from recognizing the need for more comfortable loungewear since we are spending more time at home and we need to migrate from just wearing PJs to something of equal comfort but more style and “presentability”.
Martine: Have a “Signature Talk” – focus on your zone of genius and a plan of what you want the audience to do after they hear you speak – Have a what program that they can sign up for with you – the next step. She shared a great tip to use Zoom to pre-record your videos and share into a private FB Group by using one of two products that offer this service: LIVE Pidgeon and One Stream LIVE to pre-record to go LIVE on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn. Visualize what you want and then seek to execute.
Maritza: Everything is preparation – from ballet to coaching – focus on the performance – art and science in motion e.g., Derek Jeter — think of how you will inspire others into action by speaking; be willing to start small and focus on your lane. Be solution-oriented and do things for the joy and impact. Confidence gap – in the past we can feel depressed – anxiety in the future and bliss in the present AND building long-term relationships; we can have subconscious fears to show ourselves as we are – from Maritza
Dominique: Let your voice be heard. As an online teacher and curriculum designer, it is important to craft your message to resonate with and have impact on your audience. This is the cornerstone of virtual speaking – the right content.
Mayrion: People want to know that you have experience and know what you are talking about.
