3 Steps in Increasing Audience Engagement

“In order for your audience to best retain your message and information, they need to be engaged. They need to interact. And they need to have their emotions triggered.” Here are the three basic levels:

Level 1: Ask questions

Don’t just simply share information. Ask your audience about it. This way, their mind gets more engaged and stimulated. Asking questions is actually the easiest and simplest way to get the ball rolling.
Level 2: Use analogies and examples

This level is not as easy as asking questions. When using analogies, you need to do a bit of research. You need to prepare for this and you have to get really creative.
Level 3: Get your audience moving and doing

You can do this by dividing your audience into small groups and letting them discuss a question or solve a problem among themselves. You can also let them do a group activity that’s appropriate for your topic.
