Episode #84 Stop Relying on Speed to Keep Our Attention
Welcome to the show!
Today we are talking about a topic that I deal with on a regular basis and something that I hear people mention a lot! “I go fast so I can keep my audience’s attention.”
Well, here’s the truth…that will never work. The very thing you are trying to achieve can never happen if you rely on the voice element of speed.
Speed is a wonderful tool, used sparingly but what keeps our attention is being captivated. So, how do you captivate? Well, you use all elements of variety, all five of them and you take us on a voice journey. You become unpredictable. By using just one vocal variety element you are predictable.
When you make that one choice and it’s speed, you are adding more to the mix. When you go fast, we can’t always follow you, in fact, more than not we can’t follow you. Remember, we don’t know what you know. By using speed, you are giving us permission to check out.
I think you’ll love this episode and I have no doubt benefit from it!
