In Case You Forgot – Funny Still Sells

As you already know, as a motivational speaker I write HUNDREDS of posts, articles, tweets, comments, blogs – on every subject I can possibly think of that will in hopes make your life or your work better. I labor over new forms of content creation. And get a few likes at best.

And then I post one cartoon.

One silly little cartoon. (to the left)

That I didn't even think was that funny,

And so far, it has 41 likes, two comments, and has been shared 12 times.

No post I have EVER posted has come that close.




Wait – there was one other one. I forgot all about it.

It got 64 likes and 24 shares.senile

Another cartoon. (to the right)

Yep. It's official.

  1. So true Kelly – so true!  That's why for my demo video (which is how all non-celebrity motivational speakers use to sell themselves) I put all of my humor stuff up front. I want meeting planners to know right away that I connect with my audiences using humor. Other stuff too, but the humor up front keeps them watching and wanting more. 

  2. People just want to laugh. Period.  Lessons, tips, how-tos, blah blah blah are educational and valuable but audiences still just want to laugh.  I'm hooked on Last Comic Standing for the first time because it's a whole hour of stand-up in all its many styles!

  3. That is why I love hanging around all you motivational speakers who make me laugh!

  4. How lucky am I to surround myself with some of the funniest motivational speakers on the planet!
