Do you know how to make an ask in your message? Are you able to take the stage, make a relatable connection, and confidently explain why your one person should volunteer, donate, or give to a mission trip or a building project? This may seem like a big ask in and of itself! And that’s exactly why I’m breaking this down for you here in this episode. Y’all won’t want to miss this one!
It takes skill to craft an ask, just like it takes skill to craft your message. No matter what it is that you’re asking, let’s talk about how you get your audience to answer your call to action.
Highlights from this episode include:
- Making the ask (2:21)
- Being a likable presenter (4:00)
- There’s power in your story (7:57)
- Creating a relatable connection (16:18)
- The importance of having one focus (18:10)
- Recapping the three points (20:47)
Your presentation should have a powerful story and a relatable connection so your person can see themselves in your solution. Take some time to think about how that looks for your person? Maybe she wants to make a difference, but needs some guidance on how to do so? What is it she desires to do that you can speak to? Head on over to the Take the Stage Facebook group or send me a DM on Instagram. I’d love to know more about her.
I’d love it if y’all came to join the conversation in the Facebook group – Take the Stage Speakers and take a moment to share with us! If you aren’t on Facebook, find me on Instagram! I would love for you to share it with me.
