In no more than 100 words, tell me how does the system work?

You choose the speech - or speeches - that you want from any of 10 different speech categories. You add your selected speech(es) to your shopping cart. When you finish shopping you proceed to the checkout and pay for everything by credit card.

Almost instantly, your speech(es) is delivered to you by email. You also receive by email a password key to a special online web page where you can access and edit and print your speech(es). The good news is that can instantly save up to 40% off the price of everything you buy with our popular discount coupons - available at the checkout.

How many different categories of speeches are there on the web site?

There are 14 different categories of speeches on the need-a-speech web site. These are: Best Man, Father of the Bride, Groom, Birthday, Anniversary, Motivational, Golf, After-Dinner, Retirement, Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, First Holy Communion, Welcome and Thank you speeches.

If you click on the icon representing any of these speech categories you will open the page outlining all the speeches available in that individual category.

How come there is a far better selection of speeches available in some categories than in others?

That's because there is a greater demand for some types of speeches than others. And I've been writing the speeches in response to the market demand. But if you'd like me to write a speech for you, let me know.

What happens when I click on the icon for one of the speech categories?

You are very welcome to click on any of the icons and explore the entire site. Stay as long as you like having a good look around, read the opening lines of the different speech pre-views and scroll down the different pages.

Imagine you are in a market strolling from stall to stall looking at what each speech has to offer you. And if you like the look of something and want to linger longer and find out more about it, click on the preview speech button and read the entire preview.

What happens when I click on the speech preview button?

What happens is that you'll immediately see the full speech pre-view on the right hand column of the page. You'll see the price of the speech and you'll see what exactly your order includes e.g.: Coping with nerves (10 top tips), My first speech (A professionally prepared advice leaflet showing you how to go about writing a speech of your own for the available resources.) Plus you will see a button inviting you to add this speech to your cart.

What's the point of including an advice leaflet showing me how to go about writing a speech of my own when I'm actually buying a speech at the same time?

Good question. And there's a good answer to it too. Of course you are buying a speech. And we hope that you'll be delighted with the speech that you buy. But as a member of the Speech Writers' Guild, we know from long years of experience of writing speeches that everyone has their own story, or their own special person to thank, or their own favourite witticism or joke that they may like to include in their own personal speech.

So the purpose of including this leaflet is to show you how to put together a speech - to give you a template, as it were, for creating a very special and memorable speech for yourself. By taking you step by step through the different processes that I myself went through when I was creating and writing my first speech I aim is to give you an insight into how to structure a well worded speech and where, and how best to incorporate your own personal stories and jokes into your purchased speech.

This leaflet is free. It's for you! And just about everyone tells us that they find it very useful.

How do I pay for my speech(es)?

For example, you could access your speech from a friends' house and you could read through it together, making any changes along the way that you wish. You can also access it online and go through it together with a friend in another country or location. And yes! You can print out the speech as often as you wish.

Will I receive a hard-copy of my speech or ebook in the mail?

Hey! I used the coupon discounts and I got 4 speeches for only a few $ more than the cost of buying 3 speeches... how can that be?

It's because our discounts apply to everything you buy. If you buy 4 speeches you qualify for the top 40% discount on everything you buy.

Effectively, this means that the 4th speech is a really good bargain!

Does the top 40% discount apply to 'The Best Man's Livesaver' Ebook as well?


Do I have to buy all my speeches from the same category?

No! You can select the speeches you want from anywhere on the need-a-speech web site.

For example, a groom at a wedding could select a speech for himself from the Groom speech selection. He could them go on to select a father of the bride speech for his new father in law to be, and he could select the best man's life saver Ebook for his best man. And to make absolutely sure that he got the full 40% discount he could select a motivational speech for use in the office, or even a good golf winners' speech to have in his back pocket for the next big game?
