Many businesses need people to communicate a message that inspire. This is what I do well. I can communicate orally, I can write well, and because I can inspire I also train people well. The real good news is that I am from a technical background and therefore know how to take difficult concepts and make them easy-to-understand.
Today communication is dependent on the use of technology and that’s were my online skills come to play.
Let me discuss my communication skills in more detail:
Because I know how and when to use specific words it’s easy for me to take difficult concepts and translate these concepts in easy to understood language.
Let’s say you have need a technical manual then I will research your needs, study the subject, interview specialists and compile your manual. But you may have a technical manual and need to create a sales brochure from it. Or you need to write a manual for end users than I can make understanding and reading easy.
Copywriting for your website or brochures: I come across many businesses that are so involved with their technology and used tojargon. Jargon may save time but it creates communication resistance and many non-technical people are the ones how will eventually open the purse. As soon as we simply the language more people have access, more people understand and more success is achieved.
Online copy is also requires articles that are optimized for search engines. When I started creating online businesses I made a study ofSEOand employ the techniques all the time.
Because I am also using technology to communicate it was easy to start using video and/or screen casting technology to demonstrate software or products and record and distribute training and talks via video:
Screen casts can help demonstrate and teach the use of software features. Creating a screen cast helps software developers show off their work. Screen casts are a useful tool for ordinary software users as well, to help report bugs (the movie takes the place of potentially unclear written explanations) or to show others how a given task is accomplished in a specific software environment. Screen casts are excellent tools for learning how to use computers, and severalpodcastshave started to teach computer users how to use software through screen casts.
Considering the high cost of instructor / faculty led training and the relative ineffectiveness of typicalcomputer based training(CBT) systems, screen casting is likely to become a very popular technique for imparting high-quality knowledge at a low cost.
For example, organizers of computer related seminars may choose to routinely record complete seminars and make them available onDVDsto all attendees for future reference and/or sell these recordings to people who cannot afford the fee of the live seminar or don't have time to attend it. This will generate an additional revenue stream for organizers of seminars and make the knowledge available to a broader audience, generating a win-win situation for everybody. Computer-related seminars need high quality and easily readable recordings of screen contents which is usually not achievable by using a video camera to film the desktop which is usually projected onto the wall by a projector.
As explained above, I also do create Power Point presentations of concepts using Beyond Bullet Points. Now I am able to tell a complex story in a simple way and even do a screen casts of the story; selling and sharing these ideas using video and publishing them via social media sites. They are also published via DVD, Youtube or your own website.
Power Point is a great tool but most businesses have no idea how boring their presentations are. They can just as well read all the bullets. As soon as we start using a simple technique like Beyond Bullet Points then we realise how effective and even entertaining presentations can be.
While BBP was developed to change the way people present with PowerPoint, I have found that it changes something else; the way I communicate. And the way people respond to my communication.
I enable groups and organizations to work more effectively; to collaborate and achievesynergy. Because I am 'content neutral'; I do not take sides, express or advocate a point of view, I can advocate for fair, open, and inclusive procedures. I therefore support everyone to do their best thinking and practice. By supporting everyone to do their best thinking, I enable group members to search for inclusive solutions and build sustainable agreements.
As a training facilitator I am not always a subject expert, and attempt to draw on the existing knowledge of the participant, and to then facilitate access to training where gaps in knowledge are identified and agreed on.
Technology, online communications and social media:
Today clients and potential clients need to know a business, need to like that business and need to trust that business. They don't depend as much or rather on traditional marketing and advertising anymore. There friends tell them what’s going on. Their friends recommend to them what they need to know. And traditional businesses are finding it difficult to tap into the social media market.
Because my businesses depended on effective marketing I studied online techniques. Today use social media to help my clients create trusting long term relationships with their clients and their potential clients.
These tasks include social media strategies identifying how to create online cultivation pools; places where clients and potential clients can come and share their experiences, concerns and testimonials as they use a product or service.
Therefore my experience allows a communicative solution that will ensure people not only trust you; they will also understand you and know how to use your products and services effectively.
