Speak so others can hear you ...

When we're young, we speak very rapidly. However, as we age, the link between what our ears hear and how our brain interprets that sound slows down.

You may notice that some broadcasters, say for the 6:30 p.m. national news, speak more slowly that those at your local TV station. That's because the #1 viewer audience for that national show graduated from school years ago ...

When you use the phone, I encourage you to speak slowly enough that the person on the other end of the phone can understand what you're saying. I was in a Tractor Supply store the other day and watched a girl answer the phone. Watching her lips - and hearing what she had to stay - I still don't know what she said. She spoke so quickly.

So folks, slow down.

MARKETING TIP: Talk to the age of the person - not your own age. That's a difficult lesson to learn if you're less than 40 years old. But try it.

Exactly Greta, speak slow, with care and understanding if you don't it won't make any difference, I searched blogspot blogs with keyword "marketing tips" and your blog showed up, I have been blogging for years but I never thought much about this seo thing so I wanted to give it a try by sharing my blog on blogs that are pursuing a common interest, similar hobbies or subject.

I run a blog that is related to traditional marketing domain, where I share my take on small business, marketing etc here Easy Marketing A2Z, See if it worth it, worth it to shared over here on your blog.

Kindly do check it out!

Thanks
