Payment vs. exposure
APRIL 30, 2009
One thing that we all face as paid speakers is the issue of payment vs. exposure. That is, we will be invited to speak pro bono, or will be offered less than our usual rate, and we'll have to decide if it's worth it to take less money in order to get exposure or visibility. Other nonprofit organizations may take advantage of my non-advertised nonprofit discount if they can't pay my full fee. Some of you get paid to speak; others hope to get paid one day.
