Professional speaker Deirdre Van Nest suggests you use the BIG approach to sell to your audience:
- Begin with the end in mind - ensure your entire presentation is focused on and about the product or service you are selling to your audience
- Invite buy-in - give your audience a reason to be interested in your product - mention benefits, how the product personally helped you, etc.
- Give a precise next step - ask for the sale at the end and clearly give the one thing the audience needs to do to get your information (e.g., sign up for a blog, click on an internet link, etc.)
