Barry’s “Communicate Better This Week” Blog
So let’s say you’d like more people to visit your church than currently do (if not, send me a message and I’ll tell you what to do next). Here’s a tip: Learn how to use humor to make your audience laugh. When they laugh, you’ve connected, and not just with their head but with their heart (their emotions), which is where change that result in action occurs. Not funny? That’s okay, you have access to some of the worlds funniest people and video clips via the Internet and can include them in your message via the video screen. Wait. What? Include someone else in my message besides me?? Yes… please!! || Lectures are dead. #DeathToSermons
Engagement with your audience is crucial to effective communication in 2018. Interacting with your audience helps them stay tuned-in and emotionally connected to what you’re saying. The easiest way to increase interaction with your audience is by adding visual elements to your message. Notes or main points on the screen is a start (but a small one). Even better? Add an image or photo to illustrate what you’re talking about at that moment. Adding visual images helps your audience stay tuned-in and engaged with what you’re saying. The more your audience interacts with your message, the more they learn, apply, and do. Lectures are dead. #DeathToSermons
