Armpit Breakouts, Puzzles, and Great Talks

I have a friend who is really passionate about a brand of deodorant that breaks out her armpits.

Let me explain…

This friend is a biggg Shark Tank fan. You’ve probably seen at least one episode, right?

If not, it’s a show where an entrepreneur or group of entrepreneurs have 90 seconds to make a successful pitch to a group of big-name investors (Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran…) about their business idea. Then one of the ‘Sharks’ either invests in their idea or not. Very intense and fun to watch.

Anyways, I know this friend is a big fan because any time she starts passionately telling me about a new product, it’s because she heard about it on Shark Tank.

One time it was a subscription-based puzzle brand, even though she’s yet to put together a whole puzzle, lol.

Another time it was a clean deodorant that literally broke out her armpits because she doesn’t react well to baking soda.

When I asked her what caused her to become such an advocate for these brands that don’t seem to benefit her in any way (hello, armpit rash and a closet full of partially done puzzles), she said it’s because their pitches were so moving that she couldn’t help but support them.

You see, it’s not necessarily her need for the product that prompts her to pull out her wallet. It’s the way they present themselves and share the story of the product that draws her in.

That, my friend, is the power of a great talk.

If you’ve ever wanted to share your big idea or expertise in such a way that you’re not only remembered, but people’s lives are changed because of it – the art of a “great talk” is something you’ll need to learn, too.

In today’s episode of the Online Marketing Summer School podcast series, we have guest expert and Speaker Coach Mike Pacchione sharing tips and tactics on public speaking: using your body language effectively, pausing between sentences to let the audience absorb what you said, and being strategic about where you stand on stage.
