Episode #88 Stressing Words, Especially for Podcasters
Welcome to the show!
The podcast voice series continues!
As you know I’m coming off the heels of speaking at Podcast Movement and before I get back to my regular voice programs and work I wanted to take the time to run a short series here on the show as well as a few programs for people who are doing or are interested in doing podcasts.
Today we are talking about adding emphasis to words which are key, especially if you are using a script for your show or other speaking. We don’t know what you know and it’s up to you to let us know what’s important to you and what should be important to us.
Adding emphasis to words is key in that process and helps you bring the words to life which is essential if you want to touch our emotions.
I love my show and my audience and I am a huge fan of podcasting!
If you are already podcasting, this series of voice technique will help take your show to the next level.
If you aren’t doing a show yet but would like to, this technique will help you when you get your show going.
If you aren’t planning a podcast but still speak to anyone….ever, then these voice techniques will help you!
The truth is, the voice is the most powerful tool you have if you know how to use it.
The voice is how we determine everything about you including our relationship and whether or not we trust you enough to work with you.
It’s time to invest in your voice whether you’re a podcaster or not.
