30/30 DAY 20-- Speak
April 20, 2016
Speaking was the very first thing that I did to begin to generate clients and it was incredibly effective.
When it comes to hypnotherapy, people have a lot of misconceptions and fears and really don't understand all that it can be used to achieve. Also, it's important for a person to feel a sense of rapport with the hypnotherapist or it is simply not going to work for them to be hypnotized.
So, speaking to an audience gives them an opportunity to see they if feel comfortable with me and also to get any questions answered about the type of work I do. If you're not in hypnotherapy, so much of the work in alternative and complementary health has to do with the relationship with the practitioner. So speaking is still a great choice to meet potential clients.
So, in the beginning I would think about who could use my services and what kinds of groups they would congregate in.
For example, I spoke to: - stressed-out mothers at the mother's morning out group -Doulas and midwives about hypnosis for childbirth -hospice workers about using hypnosis to ease pain and prepare people for dying -dental assistants about the uses of hypnosis for anxious dental patients -psychology students -holistic health students at Camosun college
and the list goes on… During a presentation, you can talk about. – The types of issues that you address at how you do so. – Case studies of people that you have helped – – make sure you've got their permission first. – Common misconceptions about the work you do. – What they can expect when working with you. -Why and how your modality works And to make the presentation particularly interesting, perhaps you can do a demonstration of your work if suitable.
Another thing to keep in mind is to provide information that they can actually use, even if they don't come to see you. So, for example, when I speak to the dental assistants, I talk about how the language that they use and the way they speak is communicating so much to the patient and can contribute to the way the patient feels, whether that's fearful or relaxed. I showed them how to use embedded commands, hypnotic voice and hypnotic language to help their patients to be more relaxed.
Make sure that people can contact you after the presentation by leaving brochures, cards, etc. Better yet, I pass around a sign-up sheet where they can sign up for my mailing list, information about my classes and/or a free consultation.This way I can follow up with them instead of leaving it to chance that they'll follow up with me.
It's also a nice gesture to offer a discount on your services or some other perk when you're speaking to a group. However, be cautioned that you don't give away too much! During one presentation I was really feeling the love from the room. And so I offered that anybody who attended the presentation could have free hypnosis session. Not a single person took me up on it! People are naturally suspicious if something is given away for free. If I told you that you could have my car free of charge, Its yours,You would probably question if my car was very good.
However, what I give away 15% off or $25 off of the session, then people take me up on it. People are just funny that way .Also, If you're going to give away a discount, make sure that there is a deadline which creates a sense of urgency for them to come see you sooner rather than later.
Get started by brainstorming who uses your services and how you can find them out there in the world. Then make some phone calls and have fun!
