Your Instant Speeches Checklist

Instant speeches for public speaking and the things you should know before you decide to hire or buy so that you can find the writer who will work best for you.
I have shaped a direction checklist, including confidentiality rules:

1. Writers specialize

You want to make sure that the writer you hire writes in the field you are speaking. For example, if you are giving an address at a wedding ceremony you do not want to choose someone who works in the political field of course :-)

The way of public speaking is totally different. A political speech is persuasive writing because the politician wants you to vote for them. A wedding vote is sentimental and emotional:

2. Check the site

Scan the website that you look at. A good website will have several examples of their persuasive writing and speech topics that they have written about in instant speeches. Samples show you the way they work and write.

The samples you see might not be actual talks due to confidentiality rules, but they will be along the same lines. Look if they offer a package that suits your budget. And check if they can deliver within your deadline of course :-)

3. Ask Questions about her or his work

The best way to find out if the writer you are interested in will work for you is to talk to her or him. Online, or by mail.

The writer should have no problems answering questions about their specialties or your special needs and wishes. Talking will do more than let you find out about what type of instant speeches they have written.

It will also give you an idea of what kind of chemistry you will have.

You want to work with someone who you feel good about. A person could be a great speech writer, but if you think they are a jerk that's going to come through and you won't have the same confidence in your language.

4. Read testimonies and reviews

The best way to hire a good writer for instant speeches is to read testimonies other people wrote about the work. See it as a proof before you eat the pudding - taste someone else's prewritten requests witout violating the confidentiality rules of course - ask for permission :-)

Not only reviews on the writer's site are indications, but also posts customers leave in forums on the subject. Do scan them I would advice urgently!

You might have friends, family or classmates who have had to speak in public, and their content have blown everyone away. Talk to them and find out who write it.

Note the name(s) and the email address. If you really liked it what you hear and read, than that should be the first writer you talk to. Ask for their experiences and their search for the best writer:
