Promoting yourself as a speaker

Market yourself as a public speaker

Preparation, packaging, and promotion will make the difference between whether you get paid to speak or not.

You’ve got a speech topic and you know what benefit it will bring to all who hear you. You’ve invested in a phenomenal website and its accoutrements. You’re like a teenage girl sitting there in your fancy prom dress, looking out the window, ready to go. When will your date show up? Time moves so slowly as you anticipate that phone starting to ring.

After a few months of believing “If you build it, they will come” most would-be speakers start feeling frustrated, rejected, and hurt. Some may find their enthusiasm for speaking starts to wane. Maybe they will give up before they even really give their speaking business a chance to succeed.

Because right in this moment, at this stage, as you’re about to leap onto the world scene at last — this is where the speakers and the wanna-be’s come to the fork in the road. Believe it or not, no matter how delightful you, your speech and your website are, meeting planners are not looking for you.
