Today’s Tip is …..

O is for Offer. Do you have a clear and concise offer? Have you created either a compelling free offer that is irresistible for the audience to register for– including a possible free consultation or strategy session? Or have you structured a product that is easy, clear and priced right for the audience? Have you provided incentives for them to buy—such as bonuses, or limited time availability, or special only for this event? Even if you are just selling a book, you should have in mind where you are taking this audience next—a coaching program, a webinar, an event, etc. Knowing exactly what you are marketing and your marketing sequence will actually make it easier for you to sell yourself with confidence to your next booker.

N is for Network with Other Speakers. Want great intel on organizations, meetings, associations and events that are bringing in speakers? Network with other speaker!. While some may be stingy in their responses, fearful they are giving away their own future stages, but most speakers are generous and will be willing to tell you about opportunities that you might never have thought of. Sharing some of your nuggets will undoubtedly open the gate for a dialogue that could generate a multitude of opportunities for you.

Today’s Tip is …..

M is for Meeting Planners. Meeting planners are often on staff or hired as outsourced experts when a company or an association is putting on a regional, national or international conference. But they are hard to reach, and often shield themselves from directly talking to speakers. Most often you apply for their events on a website or through a “call for speakers.” But if you are able to talk directly to a meeting planner, you can start building a relationship. Many planners work for multiple companies and if you’re not right for one, you might be right for another. There are actually several national associations of meeting planners, and you might explore attending one of their local chapter meetings to network. You can buy lists of meeting planners, but in my experience those lists tend to be very outdated. Better to see if you can locate them through LinkedIn. Alternate names for these professionals are conference planners, event managers, event coordinators, director of events, education directors.

Today’s Tip is …..

L is for Lunch and Learn. That is the term for a lunch meeting where the attendees come to hear a speaker that provides valued information on professional or personal advancement. These talks generally run between 20 and 45 minutes. And in many cases, you can use PowerPoints.  Furthermore, you can make an offer from the podium after you’ve delivered your content. However, you may be contending with clinking knives and forks, waiters delivering meals, bad sounds systems…lots of distractions. Just be patient and adapt! If you can’t use a PowerPoint you can use notes in this situation. But for many speakers, this is a lucrative marketing vehicle even if you have a short time on stage. You can always make a free offer or consultation offer if time is short!

Today’s Tip is …..

K is for Keynote. Keynotes are an art. These are one hour to 90 minute presentations that are motivational, inspirational, entertaining or educational. But they are not designed to sell. Keynotes are delivered to enhance your reputation and influence as a leader and storyteller. They require far more storytelling skills than a “platform” or enroll-from-the-stage presentation, which focuses on content, plus an offer. Many keynotes will pay a fee and cover costs for a speaker, but others may simply offer a great showcase that will get you more gigs!  These are designed for impact the audience and build your visibility!

Today’s Tip is …..

J is for Join an Organization. I’ve heard many folks ask,”Why should I join a group just to get a speaking gig?” Well, if you are smart about it, you can parlay a membership in one chapter to dozens of possibly other speaking gigs. When you join one chapter of, for instance, eWomen, or the Holistic Chamber of Commerce, or any number of professional industry associations, it entitles you to speak at all the others. One annual membership and you are now part of the club and the resistance wall comes down! Get yourself booked all across the nation, the state or your region for what in the long run is a nominal fee.

Today’s Tip is …..

I is for Identify Yourself as a Speaker –EVERYWHERE. Even if your business is not professional speaking–but you have a business where you must speak to get clients–you want to make sure everyone knows that you speak! So that means, put “speaker” on your business cards, your social media pages, your email signature, and your bio. You never know where those leads will come from if they are aware that you speak on a subject that impassions you. They just need to KNOW you speak.

Today’s Tip is …..

H is for Handouts. Before you show up for the interview, connect with the booker about whether there is an opportunity to provide either promotional handouts, or content handouts branded with your logo and contact information. I’ve been many speakers show up empty handed while other speakers came prepared. With your handouts, find out how these might be distributed–a “seat-drop” with flyers on each chair or table setting, or perhaps handed out by your team or their team –and at what point in the presentation. Can you ask for an evaluation form to be filled out?   Know what will be allowed, and if you can, take advantage of these. Your handouts can turn into more bookings!

Today’s Tip is …..

G is for Giving Back. In this world today, especially with millennial audiences, social commitment is an element that can pay dividends. If your offer includes an element of giving back to the community once the client signs up, or you can show that your program involves some kind of group activity that enhances lives, animals or the planet, this can also be a plus in your positioning yourself to get booked.
