Remove These To Be A Better Speaker

It is important to remove detracting items in speaking, to make the most impact. A lot of people aim to make an impact and are unaware of exactly what takes away from making the greatest impact to have our messages heard fully.

We will cover these topics in the following article:

There are some filler words people say in order to give more space for their ideas to come to the surface.

Mouth noises to fill space between thoughts.

There is some music put into the background of audio and videos that detracts from the message too. 

Also camera tips listed below on recording for more impact. 

Filler Words

Quick List of Filler Words To Remove And Take Out Of Speech When Presenting, Speaking, And Making The Most Impact.


You know











These words fill in space usually as we are coming to our next thought. If possible it is great to plan out points of what you will say. If it is not possible to plan out points to say, and present then it is better to pause, allow silence until the thought comes, instead of using these filler words. Silence might feel uncomfortable at first yet this is better than using these filler words above. These filler words make it seem also that we are taking a lot of time to come to our idea.

There is power in the silence.

Mouth Noises

Quick List of Mouth Noises To Remove And Take Out Of Speech When Presenting, Speaking, And Making The Most Impact.




Licking Lips

Swallowing Loudly

Sometimes we smack our mouths when we are in deep thought. We do not realize all these sounds above are extremely loud in presentations and especially on videos. They detract from our impact. Also, in one on one conversations these noises can be jarring and distracting to the listener and take away from our main points. Mouth noises, such as smacking, humming, clicking, also possibly displays nervousness, anxiety, and ungroundedness. In all situations in order to have the most impact we need to come across as confident, secure, and grounded.

Music In The Background Of Videos And Audio

Drum and bass music, or fast beats in the background of videos and audio can detract from the main message. The best music to put into the background of videos and audio is classical, instrumental, and music with little if any at all bass and drums

Recording Tips In Videos And Audio For Massive Impact

Great Lighting and preferably natural lighting

No noises in the background

Closed doors behind the camera

Fans off

A webcam, or good camera


Good headphones

Easy setup

Clean background

Giving the full focus to the video

No interruptions – communicating to everyone in your living area, you will be on camera

If in public do not say hi to random people or be having side conversations

No slamming cabinets, drawers, or microwaves, or microwave beeping, or phone sounds, communicate with everyone in your living space to be more quiet with closing things or beeping noises

Turn off all notifications on computer, and sounds on phones and devices

Look at the camera, at least every now and then during the whole video, not to the side, or away from the camera in the whole video

All of these above detract from our message and impact, they distract the audience and listener
