T is for Testimonials. We’ve talked before about how important it is for you to get testimonials from people who have booked you to influence future bookers. However, did you know there are now services that can help you capture on-site video testimonials almost from the moment when you get off stage from both bookers and attendees? You can fill up your speaker website or webpage with tons of great testimonials. Our favorite is SoTellus.com. Using technology, you can make this a breeze and show what a dynamic speaker you are through the eyes of your audience!

S is for Social Media. When people see on social media that you are booked as a speaker, it reaffirms in their minds that you are available for speaking opportunities. One of the best ways to keep getting those invites flowing in, is to make sure that you promote your appearances on social media. Use this tool as a way to remind folks that they should refer you to meeting, events and conference bookers they might know. Keep your profile as a speaker high on social media, and it will continue to spur invites. Whenever possible, do Facebook live broadcasts from your events, to show people you are in the thick of the action!

Today’s Tip is …..

R is for Referrals. There are so many different ways to get speaking referrals, and many leaders don’t take advantage of them! Ever think of asking your audience? Some speakers I know provide a short evaluation sheet that asks “do know of other organizations that might like to have me come and speak? Please let us know on this form!”  What about friends, family, other professionals in your business, clubs, masterminds or churches that you belong to? Ask them! Referrals are all around you. Ask the person who just booked you, who else they know. You can stimulate referrals by being present to the opportunities already around –and expressing a desire to be connected!

Tip Q

So I’ve filled up the SpeakerTunity® You Tube Channel with tons of useful content for speakers, leaders and authors seeking to use speaking as a way to attract clients–and to get booked for those gigs.. Yet, I still have more tips for you! So we’re going to cover them from A to Z, short tips which pack a big wallop!

Today’s Tip is …..

Q is for Questions. When you get a booker on the phone—and he or she is showing interest—what do you ask?

  • How long would the presentation be?
  • Can you present video or slides?
  • Would this be for a primary stage — or for breakouts or workshops?
  • How many people would be expected?
  • Can you sell something from the stage, make a free offer, or is it presentation ONLY?
  • Can you do handouts?
  • What would you need from me for promotional purposes?
  • Is there a fee involved or is travel covered? If travel is covered, how many nights in the hotel? 
  • If there is no fee, will you be provided lunch or dinner? Or are there any other considerations?

Ask the questions that will ensure you and the booker are on the same page, and make your presentation a success!
