Make Eye Contact Part 3

May 2, 2019 by Mitch Taylor

Many of us came from a radio background, and frankly many DJs are still that throaty toolbag who isn’t speaking in their real voice to their clients.  No one wants to do business with something or someone who is phony. Be who you are. You’re human and your audience will relate to real world situations that you share with them. Your audience will connect with you more because what you are saying is REAL.  You’re not a made up character using a fake voice and persona. Make eye contact to ensure that you make a real connection with each member of your audience, especially if it’s an audience of one.

ACTION STEPS:  The next interaction you have with someone, look him or her in the eyes.  Not in a creepy way, but in a way to understand them better, communicate on a different level with them and as a way to truly connect with them.
