Two Simple Questions to Help Your Audience Listen
We listen to voice we think will solve our most pressing need.
If we need to advance our career, we listen to the leadership guru. If we need a better relationship, we read the latest book on the topic. If we need to remodel, we turn on HGTV.
YouTube has plenty of videos on "how to fix your toilet." I guarantee you if I'm watching such a video, my toilet is overflowing. I'm only listening if I have a pressing need.
Your audience listens when they believe you will help with their need.
As you work to find your voice ask:
1. What are the needs of my audience?
2. How can I position my content as the solution?
This is where you'll find your voice.
