This week’s topic consists of what it takes to write an engaging and memorable introduction, what needs to said and stated. Our professor encouraged us to look into a PR and Social Media passionate guru, Lisa B. Marshall. Looking up on her tips, she had some very helpful points.
She starts obviously with stating their name! She advised that when introducing, say the person’s name you’re introducing at least twice; this gives the room for people to remember their name, and to realize that they are important to you and the engagement of the time.
Another of her most highly recommended tips is to focus on three things in your introduction about yourself. Three things that will make them remember, something that they can identify with, relate to. Now, whatever that is, is merely up to you. Of course, gauge it to whom you will be speaking to with topics that will get their attention.
Ultimately, keep it fresh. Don’t talk about mundane things. Be confident and try to know what they’re looking for and write an introduction that they can’t help to remember and imprint in their minds.
What other types of advise do you have on writing an introduction? I would love to hear them 🙂
