Local business owners often ask us if the material in this course is valuable for them?
Because, sure, many of the world's biggest companies (including Disney, Harley Davidson and Home Depot ... just to name a few) are using presentations every day to reach new audiences, open-up new markets and boost profits.
And this skill is heavily leveraged in the most "sophisticated” environments as well: IPO’s are assembled in Wall Street skyscrapers by pitchmen making presentations to underwriters and investment firms; ad agencies secure accounts with boardroom presentations; and entrepreneurs gain new funding with well-crafted pitches delivered to debtors and investors.
But what about small local businesses ... do group presentations work for them? In short, ABSOLUTELY!
Sure, relatively few “Main Street” brick-and-mortar businesses ever figure out that delivering a well-crafted presentation can become an unrivaled growth-machine for their business. But those who do are able to establish a huge advantage over their competition.
At the local level, one great speech can differentiate a doctor, lawyer, dental practice, financial advisor, school operator, restaurant owner, real estate agent, retail shop, chiropractor, etc., etc., from all competitors and peers ... and make them a leading expert and pseudo-celebrity in their market.
For example, take Tom and Nick Kardaza, who have built a hugely profitable real estate brokerage firm in Toronto on the strength of a powerful presentation delivered online, in their offices, and at trade seminars (www.rockstarbrokerage.com).
Or Matt Zagula, who has grown his wealth management practice to over 7-figures (in a painfully tiny market) by hosting “Evening with the Author” events at local bookstores (www.zagulamanagement.com).
Or Dr. Scott Westermeier, who has mastered the use of in-office seminars on "Better Living with Dental Implants" to build a thriving practice near Buffalo, NY (www.wmsmile.com).
Or countless other business owners who have made this strategy work for them by adapting it to “non-traditional” formats like online webcasts, prerecorded webinars, videos, podcasts, tele-seminars, and so on.
Bottom line: smart professionals in virtually every field are leveraging strong presentations.
They are relatively few in number, but they are thriving … and you can too!
