"Humor is the fastest and easiest

way to create rapport

Epiphany - a sudden awareness  of
something valuable and true.

The Power of Humor and the Tools to Deliver It.

Where Business

& Likability  Meet 

A Keynote Talk

In social media the unofficial mantra is

'be useful or be amusing, in that order.' 

Andrew Hanelly

Until recently the only way to expand on a marketing campaign

 

was word of mouth.

Now marketing can be super-charged by word of mouse.

What is the most successful word of mouse "booster" today?

Humor.

Could that be why the most successful

TV ads today are the funniest?

 

Yes.

 

Funny commercials fly fast on the internet.

 

And viral marketing is inexpensive too - like free, zip, nada. 

Yes, but does humor make you think

positively about a company?

 

Absolutely.

5,019,430 views is a lot of likeability

for laundry soap and spot on humor.

More than 3.3 million views in 48 hours.

"The reason why many advertising and marketing

experts suggest you use humor, is because it’s

fundamental to forming positive relationships.  

We buy from people we like,

and humor is the easiest 

and fastest way to get there."

    Magda Kay

This may be true for marketing

 

but what about for Presentations?

Even more so. 

When you speak and people realize 

 

you have a sense of humor

it makes them happy. It makes you appealing.

That's why some of the most memorable presenter's are

 smart and richly amusing from beginning to end.  

Funny Humor from HumorPoint

Of course we never want to minimize the universal truth that

people have lots of fears about sharing their sense of humor.

 

The #1 fear being, "I'm not funny."

 

I can hear you now;

 

"I'm not! I don't get half the jokes people tell me. I forget

punchlines. People look at me and they forget punchlines.

I am the Terminator of Humor."

 

I understand how you feel, and you're not alone.  Fortunately,

as humor coach Doni Tamblyn suggests, the remedy is simple:

       "Don't try to be funny--just have a little fun."

Sounds like good advice.

 

That being said, don't kid yourself... 

You're funny. 

Funny Humor on HumorPoint

And sometimes you're embarrassingly funny.

Everyone is. 

Whether you are a Keynote speaker,

a TED speaker, an entrepreneur pitching a VC, a

salesperson pitching a customer, an executive

presenting a new strategic plan, or a rising staff

member leading a meeting for the first time...

 

Let me ask you a serious question.

What is your sixty-seconds strategy

to win over your audience’s undivided attention 

right out of the gate?

Might I suggest a little HUMOR?

The Good News today is you don't even need

to a say word to be funny. 

A perfect cartoon, quote, image or video can do all the

humor heavy lifting to win over your presentation 

audience for immediate rapport. 

 

And you get all the CREDIT for

having a GREAT sense of humor.

What's not to love about that?

 

Need proof that delivering a great

laugh is now easier than ever?

Funny Humor on HumorPoint

Whether you decide to captivate

the attention of your next audience 

with a hilarious comedy video by Sebastian Maniscalco (.com),

 

a funny personal story, a crowd-pleasing cartoon, 


a funny quote, or a well-written joke,


you are more assured to earn your audience's undivided

 

attention right out of the gate with a smart touch of humor.

 

Particularly if you want to be heard,

 

be liked, and be memorable.

This timeless adage is always true.

 

"Our best first impression is a moment of shared laughter."

If you haven't read the Holy Grail recently

we want to give you a heads up that

 

we're working on a sequel.

 

The Holy Grail of Humor.

HumorPoint

We believe great humor works wonders to make an

audience feel good. That is why we created HumorPoint,

so that anyone, regardless of position or

personality can confidently 

bring the 'funny' anytime.

And with over 25 places listed above that humor

improves and optimizes outcomes that's a lot of places where you can improve results and enhance your success.

 

Which leaves us with the question?

Why wouldn't you use humor more often?

Maybe because you didn't have a set of humor tools to make 

 

it easier than ever to find, use and deliver great humor.

With all of humor's benefits and opportunities 

to be heard, be liked, and be memorable,

 

any justification our mind conjures up

for not using humor in today's humor filled world is

 

(wait for it)

 

 laughable.

Perhaps of all the communication strategies that leaders utilize,

the use of humor is most promising, but least understood.
