Public speaking
• Become knowledgeable about your speech topic.
• Establish an ethos first - a good way to do this is to begin your speech with a funny joke or small talk. 
• Don't constantly read your notes, cross your arms/legs or have your hands in your pockets. 
• Make frequent eye contact to everyone. 
• Think of the audience as your friends and smile. 
• Deliver your message without ranting or having an axe to grind. 

 Interpersonal sales/product demos
• Memorize any script you have without totally relying on it.
• Be fully knowledgeable about your products.
• Build a rapport - greet each prospect in a friendly, happy manner.
• Get customers involved by having them touch or test your item.
• Blend listening to your prospects and showing empathy for their related problems in with giving your spiel.

Job interview    

• You'll make a better impression by arriving with an attache or briefcase instead of a backpack, book bag or gym bag.
• Sell yourself.
• Frequently make eye contact for several seconds then momentarily look away. 
• Answer questions briefly without being vague or talking excessively. 
• Don't ask about the salary or badmouth your bosses.
• Be ready to answer questions about your background or what the firm does, no matter what type of firm it is.

New tip for public speakers and salespeople
Besides being informative, display humility and self deprecation. Regarding the latter, your prospects may relate to you better if you poke fun and laugh at yourself. 

Wait! Don't be so hesitant to exit. There's one more step to take to reach public speaking and presentation greatness. Make it happen by investing in an item you see above and to the right or the ones you see below now.

Website success tips

If you're a public speaker or salesperson, the chances are high you have a website or blog. As a businessperson, you probably want to create more exposure for your brand and make more of a name for yourself. Consequently, I added this page to help you have more website success. Below are tips to help you achieve these goals.

Let's start with the basics. Your site must have a strong title that reveals the main benefit people will reap from visiting you - there are free Google and SEO tools you can use to test the strength of the title and other aspects of your site. On your homepage, begin the first paragraph by discussing what your site is about. 

Insert a site map or other feature that has the link to all of your pages at the top of your site. Link back to your homepage at the end of your content on all secondary pages. If you need to insert code from external sites to install something such as ad code on all pages, use the HTML/Javascript feature in your layout settings. Provide free tips regarding your niche if you run a self-help site.

Periodically proofread your site, test your links and make sure everything is eye-pleasing. Use subheads and numbered paragraphs. If you have questions about building/maintaining your site, please email me and I'll be happy to assist you. More tips are below.


1. You can please Google and your visitors by putting all of your most important information or tips on the homepage and writing this in a list format and numbering each key point then name your site based on how many steps you have. Study the websites of your competitors to see what they may be doing better than you. Use Semrush to learn the competitiveness of keywords regarding your niche then create a title for your site that represents one of the ones which are less competitive.


2. Check the labels you have for each website page in your settings often. Your labels must be keywords that match the content for that particular page. Also, some of your most important keywords should be at the top of your homepage.

3. The more special content you have and the more you build curiosity, the higher your search engine rankings may be and the more you'll persuade others to click on your listing. Creating cliffhangers on your site such as questions that will make visitors wonder what's next can be effective. Also, most of us learn more easily through visuals; therefore, you should create charts or graphs that contain information or tips on your niche - you can create good ones for free through Venngage and Canva. 


4. Your blogs should contain special headlines. A good example is: "Warning: Use these surefire self-help tips at your own risk"


5. Enable any meta tag description features that are in your control settings besides those that exist in your post writing area. The more descriptions you provide search engines and potential visitors, the more traffic you may get.

How Pick Your Price Program Works/Purchase Policies

- Terms can be tweaked anytime for clarity -

My goal is to provide superior customer service while bending over backwards to serve you well. You'll enjoy the Pick Your Price program which lets you choose what to pay for the e-book I directly sell here - you'll discover this as you scroll down any page. In order to be fair to everyone, the policies below apply to all customers with almost no exceptions*.  

*In order to establish trust, I'm making it so that if you're enduring dire circumstances such as a death in the family, I can grant you a break on the policies below without seeking proof. I generally send two emails of importance after a purchase (more information throughout this page).

Ultimately, it's up to you to quickly tell me your status. If you wait more than 48 hours after that second email, I can't guarantee you'll get a break where a refund takes priority over anything else. A rebate is still available at anytime after waiting too long in the case of hardship.

How this all works introduction (Part 1): I'll send a purchase confirmation notice in which I acknowledge your purchase, let you know your order is being processed and tell you whatever, if anything else, you should know. A satisfaction follow-up email where I ask about your satisfaction once I've completed your order then delivered it should come within a few days at the most.

How this all works introduction (Part 2): Please be aware you may avoid further contact by using my email address listed above in the site header to request a refund, should you immediately change your mind upon finishing purchase. Unless I see something unusual or suspect you've committed fraud (which I don't foresee), I'll automatically issue a refund you're entitled to per these terms - more information on refunds and rebates is below. 

Communication and response are key. I'll send just enough emails to process your order and keep you updated until service is delivered whenever necessary. Reading my emails and having dialogue will make it easier to give you any refund/rebate you may want.   

If you end up not getting that consolation reimbursement because you didn't communicate with me, don't blame me. For the purpose of learning how to improve my items and service, I may ask what went wrong anytime I issue remittance. Refusing to respond to this question will have no bearing on getting any refund/rebate you're entitled to in accordance with these policies.

To save both of us time in the event you want the e-book over the CD, please leave a note saying you want the public speaking and interpersonal sales presentation plus job interview tips combination book as you pay or immediately notify me of this by email after completing purchase. If you don't let me know about this and I can't get a response from you by email within a day, I'll simply send you all of my how-to books
(typing, tennis, study, job hunt and public speaking/presentation tips combination) in one email.

Want a refund for my e-book? Providing an e-book is like a service and returning my e-book has no value to me. However, I'll grant a refund if you express dissatisfaction before I contact you within hopefully 24 hours or within 72 hours after I send satisfaction follow-up notice. If you do this too long after that, I may give you a rebate mainly based on how much you paid for the book and not exceeding 50 % in any case. 

Shipping should begin within one business day. No hidden fees are added in checkout and I cover shipping costs for all national and international customers. Please return your CD in good condition within 30 postal business days* for guaranteed refund if you aren't satisfied. *Day 1 is the day your item is delivered. Sundays and holidays don't count. 

It's at my discretion to reimburse return shipping fee too or give you a rebate mainly based on the shipping cost and not exceeding 50 % in any case within the next few weeks if you return the item damaged or past my deadline. Regarding this fee: if there's enough money in my PayPal account at the time, I would prefer to immediately take that out to cover this remittance rather than waiting a few weeks when there's more money in there to do so.

The condition of the returned CD may not truly be your fault and I could still give you the benefit of the doubt to grant a rebate if the item comes back with perhaps a scratch or in other condition not to my liking. A destroyed item will result in no rebate.  

Disrespect to me in any correspondence will result in no rebate and no return fee reimbursement. 

Ultimately, I may not have that much money to just dole out from my PayPal account at any time you request or have earned a rebate - this applies to issuing shipping fee reimbursement in the case of a return because the money I would have paid for shipping wouldn't have come out of your payment in the first place. 

I may issue your remittance by check instead of having you wait up to a few weeks to get payment through PayPal. Ultimately, I'll give you that option. In the case of getting a rebate, I would tell you how much money you're owed before securely processing it.

Finally, your information won't be sold. Improvement from my products and service isn't guaranteed. Although it'll likely never happen, I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for whatever reason and to not grant refunds/rebates to persistently bad customers who have previously been given a final warning.

You've read all this information you need and still can't make up your mind to make that investment above and to the right that can result in winning over an audience, client or hiring manager after making an outstanding presentation? I see... In that case, return to homepage.
