Connecting with Associations

Industry Associations

Industry Associations are a great way of finding a specific business target market.  Usually these associations have the money to pay Speakers if you ask politely and are within their secretive budget. It is easier to find paid speaking jobs at industry conferences.

Quality over quantity; this is not a numbers game.  It’s important to only pick a handful of well targeted associations and ones you feel are a perfect fit to start. Nurture them, build relationships and amazing opportunities can happen.

My One Powerful Change to Make Yourself Crash Proof

 A lot of times I write about the nuts-n-bolts of running your speaking business and building your speaking platform. Speaker websites. Managing & finding leads. Hiring your speaker support team. And for good reason.

You have to focus on those two areas of your career, business & platform, to create a solid place to launch your success from, or it will not be sustainable.

You are a professional public speaker, but you are also a business manager and platform building coach, all at the same time. If you’re in this solo, meaning without an assistant or team, right now, you are wearing many, many hats. That might be overwhelming, or, it might be perfectly inside your wheelhouse.

Regardless of how well you’re handling – emotionally, mentally & practically – all the to-dos, have-tos, commitments and wish lists of running your career, there’s a wall out there waiting for you to hit it. When you do, you’ll do what everyone else does when they hit a wall. Crash into it & stop all forward motion & lose all momentum.

So, if you know there’s a wall out there for you, like everyone, what can you do to prepare for it, even if you don’t see it yet? Listen in to today’s podcast and find out how to make yourself crash proof.

 My Take On The 2020 Thing

Yes, I’m going there. I wasn’t going to, and then an idea so perfect came to me that I just had to. I had to because 2020 (20/20) is a perfect metaphor for what you have to focus on this year to make it your best year yet as a professional public speaker.

So, pardon the eyesight puns and the overused visions-related references, but this 2020 thing has me ID-ing your must-dos for this coming year if you want to see your business grow and watch your reputation as the go-to expert in your field get solidified.

Today’s Podcast: 

Transitioning from Free Speaking to Paid Speaking

One of my Charli Jane Speaker Club members recently asked this question:

“I’ve been speaking for free for over a year now. It seems that my free speaking attracts more free opportunities. How do I transition to paid speaking?” She said that her audience has been mostly women so far, but her message could speak to any gender. She continued to say that she has firmed up her keynote signature talk. She was very clear in her business focus: “My goal, for now, is to speak, get paid and find clients who want to do 1/1 coaching.”

 

I thought I’d share my answer with you, as it applies to so many of my listeners.

5 Ways to Make the Most Out of Your Speaker Website

I’ve worked with planners and speakers for 18 years and it is always a joy to come across an organized, neat, attractive website with everything needed easily at-hand.  Anything less can seriously hinder your speaking career.

You have a few moments, minutes at best, to captivate a planner.  If you make it frustrating they will move on.  Make the hiring decision easy, and the gratitude will come across in bookings.  Many times a planner will print an article or Onesheet to bring up before a board or selection committee. 

Make sure yours are ready to go.

Find Your X-Factor To Go Beyond Name Recognition

What do you want to be known for? The fact of the matter is that people may not always remember your name in the speaking business. What makes you memorable is your message or the key thing that you do for your audiences. Once you know what that is, use that to become known for it and go beyond just your name alone.

How many times have you been asked if you know someone by name, only to have your memory jogged when the person asks you, “You know, the guy who does x”. X stands for whatever it is that makes that person stand out and memorable.
