Attract Your Clients Through Speaking
One of the main misconceptions about getting paid to speak is that a speaker fee is the only way to get paid. Instead, if you can give an offer on your talk, you can get a bigger income out of that talk.
How to get business today
Today you can target any area, country as you don’t need to travel to. Leisa has found more opportunities now than before.
Traveling all the time was never suitable for every speaker.
Strategies to attract clients
- Have your talk ready to rock. It’s not only about what you know, but how you offer value to the right audience.
- Figure out who are your ideal clients: associations, clubs, events. Find where they are so you compete in the right “race.”
- You must have your bio, talk description, learning points, headshot, ready to send over.
