Best Speaker Award – Secrets To Selling Well


I was invited to speak at a seminar two weekend ago. And I was still surprised to see so many local Singaporeans attended.

As you know, Singapore is a very small country. But seeing so many people turn up proves that the market for the “Make Money Online” niche is still new and the demand for knowledge in this industry is still growing.

When it was my turn to take the stage, I swear that I could see the enthusiasm burning in the eyes of the audiences. These people were eager to learn and that motivated me to give my all.

And I shared with them some of my best secrets of making money on the internet. When the presentation was over, a huge group in the audience came forward to thank me for sharing so many tips with them.

One lady even said that I gave more tips than some of the courses she brought online and she had learnt a lot. It was really flattering.

It made me feel really good knowing that I have touched someone’s life. After speaking for 2 days, I was feeling a little listless on the third day and decided to head back early.

But the event organizer asked me to stay until they gave out the Best Speaker Award.

The audience gets to vote for their favorite speaker and the one with the most number of votes wins. So I waited patiently in my seat while the next speaker delivered his presentation… I think I must dozed off.

Because I was awoken by surprised by the loud applause by the audience.

Everyone was looking at me smiling, as they cheered wildly!

I had totally no idea what was going on! Then the organizer said, “Jaz, you’ve won the Best Speaker Award”. I was dumbfounded.

It was a great honor, I had never thought that I was able to get such a award.

Years ago, if you told any one of my friends that I had won the best speaker award.

They’ll probably laugh in disbelief because I’m not eloquent and I speak in broken English.

I even failed my English in school. But still, it was a very pleasant surprised.

That night, I reflected on the whole event. I wondered to myself what exactly did I do to have won this prestigious award. And I found the answer.

I was very generous in sharing my knowledge without any expectations. So friends, it really pays to be generous. And it works the same for your internet business.

The more willing you are in sharing valuable information… The more people will appreciate you and they will buy from you. This is what we call – The Law of Reciprocity.

The law of reciprocity can basically be summed up by stating the golden rule: do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

When you do something for someone else, they feel a compelling urge to reciprocate.

So if you are still thinking what is the ultimate selling method, this is it.

The better your information, the higher chances that people will buy from you.

    Hi Jaz

    I am thrilled to hear about your award – it just reinforces what you say – that if you give value in the things that you say then people will listen to you and your speech must have been something special.

    If you speak like you write I am not surprised you won. My wife doesn’t even have Singlish, she speaks Chinglish and we can still communicate well. It’s not what’s in your mouth, but what’s in your heart that says it all, but I think that’s what you do anyway
    Good onyer mate

    Jaz, congratulations on your Best Speaker Award!! Frankly, as much you claim to have failed English and not eloquent, you are inspiring and willing to share. You rock – the smile you display, the sincerity and down to earth simple presentation that connects to most of us. You truly gave tips that are simple to follow. I think you are also a superb sales man too. Your courses fully were sold before you finished be at the AIC / GIS 2010. I am glad to be having you as my mentor. Encouraging me that it is not too late to start even being senior,retired and zero base idea of IM. I am really looking forward on the hand on course in early December.
