10-Point Plan To Better Whiteboard Sales Presentation
Presenting your business information at a whiteboard training could be the smartest move you make this year. It’s the simple, quick and easy way to blast your competition and stand out in a crowd.
In addition to taking a whiteboard training, use this 10-point plan to hardwire success.
1. Know Your Topic
Hmm. You’d think this would be a no brainer. But it’s not. Know your topic inside and out. Everything shows when you’re at a whiteboard in front of a tough crowd. Especially your expertise.
2. Know Your Audience
Different strokes for different folks. If you know your audience you’ll know exactly what they will go for. And what to leave out. Every audience is different. Know yours and make your presentation soar.
3. Hire a Whiteboard Coach
Don’t plan your presentation in isolation. Work with a professional coach to adapt and adjust your message so you care presenting to win.
4. Take a Whiteboard Bootcamp Training
There’s nothing better than a 2-day targeted training to blast your skills into the stratosphere. Get to know the hands-on tricks and tips only the pros can show you.
5. Watch Whiteboard Tutorials
In addition to coaching and training, hone your skills. Watch short entertaining tutorials to learn the ins and outs of mastering this critical skill.
6. Practice Like Crazy
As all performers know, you have to practice using your tools. It’s not enough to have book-knowledge. Get up in front of a board and rehearse your presentation.
7. Go Lean
Try out your presentation with whiteboards only. This may be a lot like going on a diet (from PowerPoint and Keynote) – so be sure to practice and rehearse.
8. Mix and Match
If #7 was just too scary, mix things up. Work at a whiteboard – and show some slides. Slip in a short demo in between. Work on your flow to mix and match different mediums during your presentation.
9. Videotape Your Performance
Just like presenting in front of a crowd gets the adrenaline pumping, so does whiteboarding. Record yourself on video. Watch your performance. Hint: watch this video with a coach so you get candid and objective feedback.
10. Breath New Life Into It
Don’t allow yourself to get stuck in a rut. Try new techniques and methods of whiteboarding and interacting with your audience. If you always start one way – change things up. Challenge yourself to do new things.
