Speakers: Let Readers LISTEN to Your Post and. . .

LISTEN Speakers: Make an Audio of Your Post!

I’m sure you’ve heard that your writing should have a “Voice.” That’s true, and by making the audio of your posts available, it literally will!

There are Huge Benefits to doing this.

  1. People who prefer to listen will appreciate the convenience of audio.  The text is available for them to refer to if they wish to revisit something they heard.

  2. For those who are Auditory Learners, about 30% of the population, this is especially helpful.

  3. This is evidenced by the growing popularity of audiobooks, in part, because of new technologies.

  4. You’ll better connect to your audience because you, the author, is “speaking” to them.  Your voice, and the manner in which you deliver is part of your “Branding.”

  5. You recognize your favorite actors and TV personalities by their voice, don’t you?

  6. The audio can be placed into an iTunes Podcast Channel.  This expands your presence on the web.

You’ll become a much Better Speaker and Writer! Here’s how I know this:

No Sweat Public Speaking! - Audio-Player-Icon

Audio Player Icon

One day I went to Tiny Business, Mighty Profits, the site of my good friend, Russ Henneberry.  This is one of my favorite places to go for marketing ideas.  There was an audio player icon at the beginning of the post.  I was naturally curious about this and clicked on it.  Immediately I heard Russ reading his post and I started reading along with him. After a minute or two I thought to myself, “Why am reading?  Here is the author, in his voice, giving his article the inflection, pauses and cadence that best conveys his message.  If something he says catches my attention, the text is there for me to refer to. I can even stop the player and re-listen to something if I wish. I stopped reading and resumed my listening.  This convinced me I learned more by carefully listening to the person who wrote the post.  I decided to do the same with my regular blog. After setting up an iTunes Channel and installing an audio player I was ready to record using Apple’s Garageband. YIKES! What a humbling experience!

  1. When I started recording, I quickly found spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and sentences that were best re-written.

  2. When I listened to the recording, I discovered I sometimes mumbled and, more than once, let the volume of my voice trail off at the end of a sentence. Other elements of my vocal delivery were not done as well as I thought I could do, either.

This lead to me making corrections and doing some re-writing.  There were also a number of re-recordings of the audio done. While it was upsetting to find these things that needed to be corrected, I might not have found them had I not started recording the audio of the Post.  I now do this for each and every article I put into my blog. I’m convinced the combination of Written Post + Audio Post has made me a Better Writer and a Better Speaker. I challenge YOU to do the same with your writings, be it articles or posts.  Record the audio and my prediction is your next presentation will be  – NO SWEAT!
