Just type the speech out
This week we’re working on demonstrating how our nonverbal communication can enhance delivery. Let’s put that to the test!
For your speech this week you need to find a product you enjoy and then sell it! For instance the product could be a computer tablet. Once you’ve decided what you want to sell you have to figure who you’re selling to. Submit a short paragraph in the comments area about who your audience is. Using the example of selling a tablet you could sell this to college students, whomever you’d like but be specific!
Use enthusiasm and nonverbal communication (such as gestures) to enhance your sales pitch. Research your product and find what your audience needs and sell to that.
Create a sales pitch of your product to your audience in 3-4 minutes. Imagine it is a conference and you have three minutes to sell your product quickly!
A few parameters:
- Research your product (any product you enjoy or would want to purchase). What can this product do that others can’t? Why would you need it?
- Pick an audience and tailor the speech to them. Why would they need this product? How could this product solve some of their problems? What features can this product do that the audience would want?
- Create and record a 3 – 4 minute sales pitch.
- Submit a paragraph about what product you picked and who your target audience is. You can be brief about this. Submit your paragraph in the comments area when also submitting your speech video.
