Speaking for 10k

 

I’m going to be blunt with you. Because I care about you, and I know you’re very likely stuck in a traditional speaking career business model that has you thinking you already know how to be a speaker who gets $10,000 per event.

 

You’re working hard to build your platform, make those connections and work your audiences into a fan-frenzied following that you can tap into for the big speaking fees.

 

You’re probably thinking that someday, you’ll be able to ask for, and get, that kind of appearance fee while planners are lining up to book you years in advance, and smiling while they hand over those heavy checks.

 

There are some really good resources out there that will help a speaker get to that point, but I’ll tell you this: If you’re not famous already, or are the very pinnacle expert in your field, you will not get those kinds of fees starting out.

 

No planner is going to pay you that kind of money unless you’re a household name, famous, an ex-president, astronaut, etc. And, honestly, maybe not even then.

 

You see where I’m going, right?

 

That list could go on and on. But if you’re not on it already, you will need to think outside of that very narrow lane to get to your $10K payday.

 

Here’s the right turn you need to make. Get ready to put your blinker on.

Increase your Reach with a Service Organization

Some organizations meet weekly and have set aside a portion of their meeting for a presentation.  With around 50 meetings a year, they are hungry for speakers to present to their group.

To become a better-known and polished speaker, saturate your local market with speaking engagements. Soon people won’t be able to avoid seeing your name as the featured speaker, the headliner, a supporting break-out instructor, and more.  Another bonus of this method is that it doesn’t matter whether your target market is business or personal.  The people in the room are professionals, and of course they are people who have families and everyday concerns as well.

As an added bonus, the professionals in the room are from a wide variety of businesses and hold many different positions.  Ask the people you sit with or who thank you afterwards for opportunities to present at their place of business.  This may also give you a ready opportunity to do longer presentations with a fee.

It’s become easier than ever to show off video segments of your speaking engagements.  Even a well-placed mobile phone can take good enough footage of an engagement to help you book your next gig.

If your samples aren’t readily available, you might get passed over.  Your sample video and one-sheet should be readily and prominently available, even side-by-side, on your website.

Today’s event planners are looking for you to make it easy for them to screen applicants and presenters. Have a video and Speaker Onesheet available within 1 easy click from your website homepage.

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.

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.
