Why you are likely selling the wrong thing

What’s Hot & What’s Not in Demo Videos with Chris West

Speaker Launcher

From website design to CRM software to Marketing and Copywriting services, we have you covered. In this digital age, you need to have a near perfect video to make the meeting planner keep you on the short list and get the booking. Today, the Wealthy Speaker Podcast is being brought to you by The Business Boutique. Need help building your Speaking Business? It’s so hard for speakers to know who to trust with their hard-earned money.

If you're a professional speaker, who is your customer?

Public Speaking Advice and Commentary

  But over the long term, a professional speaker has to take care of at least one other 'audience' just as carefully:  the meeting planners that hire her.    Your customers are indeed the meeting planners, and you'd better treat them well.    And yet the speaker behaved badly from start to finish, making unreasonable demands of the meeting planners and complaining about everything.

Great Public Speaking

4 Tips to Succeed Speaking in 2017

Succeed Speaking

You may help them with morale… with customer service… with creativity… or with any number of other things. While every client wants an amazing speaker, what they really want is a speaker who will make them (the meeting planner, and the organization) amazing. Is it just me, or does it seem like there are more “professional speakers” than ever these days?

Have a Book? Use The Content For Article Marketing

Great Public Speaking

Books are excellent calling cards and can quickly increase your worth to a meeting planner and add an additional revenue stream to your online business. They can be published as article content on your own websites , uploaded to article marketing services such as ezinearticles.com, used as blog posts, given away as PDF files for opt-ins, recorded as MP3's or podcasts and broken into smaller ebooks and training. I know that many of you out there have published books.

Public Speaking: Contract Marketing

Great Public Speaking

The idea is to put a mention of other products or services in your contract / agreement after you have landed the speaking engagement. You might say, "Tom, why don't you just discuss additional product sales up front with the meeting planner and put the deal right in your contract?" The reason is that the meeting planner doesn't always know how much budget that is available for this until all the top priorities are under contract.

Public Speaking: Send Your Client a Customized Flyer

Public Speaking: Draw More Traffic to Your Website with These Tips

Great Public Speaking

If you are just beginning and need to attract meeting planners, upload your headshot, as well as some action shots of yourself speaking to an audience. Place both low resolution and high-resolution photos on your website so meeting planners will have access to the size they require for print and web publications. Look online for quiz maker tools that allow you to create quizzes to promote your products and services.

How much is a public speaker worth? How much would you pay?

Public Speaking Advice and Commentary

  All but three are former politicians, thus confirming the idea that it may be public service at the time, but afterward you can cash in.    As one meeting planner told me once, when we were haggling over a client’s $25K fee, “OK.    Ideas, research, books, public service, inventions, innovations, businesses – real accomplishments that take time and perseverance.  How much is a public speaker worth?

Public Speaking Business Marketing: Broken Websites

Great Public Speaking

You have to keep a constant vigil as to where your links are going to make sure that the original site has not been banned, been taken down or changed to some other site or service. Building a public speaking website can be exciting and daunting at the same time.

Why Should They Listen to Your Pitch? 9 Important Tips

SpeakerSue Says...

Each person in the audience could recommend her services to others. No matter how wonderful your spa might be, if the meeting planner is interested only in a one day seminar, your spa doesn’t come into play.
