A lot of time is spent identifying the right audience for one’s message, and rightfully so. It’s important to target a receptive audience. Sometimes, though, a person doesn’t have any control over who is in the audience. The person then has to deal with different types of audience members, something I discuss in my latest video.¹
I know I didn’t cover all the people (Although I did cover orcs, purple ponies, and monkeys.) who comprise an audience. As I said in my video, I would be here all day if I were to talk about the different types of audience members. I chose to generalize and to focus on three, over-arching categories.
How do you handle the different types of people found in your audience? How do you remain focused on the Timmy’s and not the orcs or the purple ponies?
¹I know I bombed this video. Watch the part with the orc. I say “knife” instead of “tongue.” I let the error stand because my second and third takes always are worse than the first.
