Kernaussage 1 von 9

To keep your audience hanging on every word, pique their curiosity and fuel their imagination.

People today are impatient. As soon as you open your mouth, people in the audience have already made up their mind: about what kind of person you are and what you can do for them.

If you don’t give them something exciting to latch onto, they’ll tune out immediately, and start paying attention to the next act.

So how can you avoid this fate?

You need to pique your audience’s curiosity about your knowledge and what you have to offer.

Here is where Did You Know? questions play a key role. Offer your audience three important bits of information that they don’t know, but are eager to know.

It’s easy to do: just craft three, one-sentence Did You Know? questions to start your conversation. These questions might be about the problem you’ve set out to solve, the importance of your work, a dramatic shift in the field, or the unmet needs in the market that you’re filling.

Let’s say you’re talking about a book that addresses landing a job in today’s tough market. Your three questions might look like this:

Did you know that...80 percent of the 3.6 million jobs available in 2012 were never advertized?

Did you know that...on average, only 20 percent of job applicants actually get an interview?

Did you know that...in 2013, 53.6 percent of college graduates in the United States under 25 were jobless or underemployed?

Granted, making people curious is half the battle. Now you need to fuel their imagination to maintain their curiosity about your subject, and that means pitching a solution.

Let’s stay with the book example. Your solution for your talk might sound something like this:

Imagine that...once you read this book, you’ll stand a chance of finding 40 percent more openings for your dream job or boosting your chances of getting an interview by 30 percent!

This technique works, as when you phrase potential outcomes like this, you’re helping your audience actively think about what you’re saying.
