For you, it may not be exhilarating and fun, but if you are an entrepreneur, it sure is lucrative.
That is because speaking is one of the best strategies to generate leads for both your business and your events. When you go to networking events, you are building relationships and possible leads on a one to one basis.
However, when you are the featured speaker, you get to build a relationship with the entire room and you establish your credibility and expertise at the same time.
There are lots of groups that need speakers, like local networking groups, associations and other groups that share your ideal audience.
What Do You Need To Get Booked?
In order to get booked, you will need specific marketing materials, like a speaker one-sheet. You will also need to know how to adjust your presentation to any length, and for any audience.
If you want to know exactly how to market yourself as a speaker, generate leads and fill your workshops and seminars, join me for a free teleseminar on August 11, at 7pm ET.
Susan Levin from Speaker Services is interviewing the speakers of her upcoming event “Talk Up Your Business: Master The Message, Master The Marketing”.
She will be asking Jack Barnard, Rick Frishman and myself questions like:
–How to fill your workshops
– How to expand your short talk into any length presentation, for any audience, for any purpose
– How to tap into powerful strategies for lead generation
– How to build an entire product line of information products around your expertise
– How to turn your expertise into profits
– Why you need a video demo
– What are speaker marketing materials?
– Why publicity is 100 times better than advertising
How can you cram all that into an hour? Well, on the teleseminar you will get the short, condensed version. For the in depth answers to these questions (and more), there is the Talk Up Your Business event.
Hope you can join me on the call this Thursday. Reserve your spot on the free teleseminar right now!
