As the old saying goes, I've got good news and I've got bad news....
The good news is — people who hire speakers are looking for you! They need your message! They want to give you money!
But here's the bad news — before they can hire you, they've got to know about you. Because if they don't know about you, they can't even look for you. And if they can't find you, they can't hire you. And if they can't hire you, your career will continue to be a closely-held secret.
"Top Secret" is good if you're a spy. It's lousy if you're a speaker!
One of the biggest problems of professional speakers and trainers — like other entrepreneurs — is figuring out how to get people to look at their websites, blogs, and other Internet marvels. Do you know why they don't look at your wonderful website? They don't know that it's there! And so they don't know you exist!
Fortunately, professional speakers now have a versatile, powerful, cost-effective marketing tool — Speaker Promo!
Speaker Promo gives you three different and highly effective ways to promote yourself, your speeches, your products and services, and your speaker's business in general —
In a nutshell, Finders Speakers is a speakers' directory, a convenient way for event planners (and other people who hire speakers) to find speakers for their meetings and events. But Finders Speakers differs from traditional speakers directories in several important ways:
To start with, almost all speakers directories give you one single entry with which you can market your keynote, your training programs, your future bestseller, and your consulting services. Not Finders Speakers! With Speaker Promo, you can have up to thirteen (that's right, 13!) individual entries to promote all the different aspects of your business. So you can promote your keynote in one listing, your training programs in another, your consulting services in a third, and still have 10 more listings for anything else you want to promote!
Some speaker directories force you to list your email address, so people can get in touch with you. Unfortunately, this also makes you a prime target for spam. Other speaker directories don't even allow you to talk directly to the people who want to hire you ― you have to go through the speaker directory service (possibly so they can take a percentage of your fee). Not Finders Speakers! Speaker Promo is not involved in any communication between you and your prospect. But even better, you don't have to list your email address ― you can use Promo's “private contact” capability to allow your prospects to contact you without revealing your email address until you want to.
Many speakers directories limit the number of words (or even characters!) that you can put in your entry. Not Finders Speakers! Your entries in Finders Speakers are virtually unlimited in size ― although with 13 entries, you won't need to cram everything about your business into a single entry, so each entry can be just as long as it needs to be... and no longer. But the important thing is, you choose the length of each entry that's right for you. It's your choice!
Most speakers directories are template-driven. That is, your entry looks pretty much the same as everyone else's entry ― one photograph (positioned in exactly the same place), one video (ditto), and so on. Not Finders Speakers! You can lay out your directory entry in pretty much any way you want. And with Speaker Promo's easy to use what-you-see-is-what-you-get page builder, it's easy!
But promoting yourself through Finders Speakers is only one of the ways that Speaker Promo boosts your career....
Speakers are already scouring the web, looking for the "perfect" quotation to use in their presentations. What if the perfect quotation that they chose was one of yours?
Coming up with a pithy quotation is the easy part. How can you make your words of wisdom available to the people who want to quote you? Wyze Words is the answer, and Speaker Promo is your way to access Wyze Words.
Wyze Words is the popular quotations repository where people can find quotations from the thought leaders and influencers of today — like you! Your membership in Speaker Promo enables you to put your 27 best quotations and sound bites in front of the people you want to influence.
But as the late-night infomercials say, "But wait! There's more!"
While Speaker Promo members can have up to 13 different entries in Finders Speakers, you can also place any (or all) of your 13 entries in The Barber Shop Bookstore!
Your entries in The Barber Shop Bookstore have all the benefits of entries in Finders Speakers (unlimited length, customization, private contact capability); the only difference is that you're promoting your products or services to the public in general (and your fellow speakers in particular), rather than to the people who hire speakers.
So let's say you're a motivational speaker and you've also written a future best-selling book. You can promote your keynote to meeting planners with one Finders Speakers entry, promote your book to those same meeting planners with a separate Finders Speakers entry, and promote your book to the general public with an entry in The Barber Shop Bookstore! (And you still have 10 more unused entries!)
What does all this cost? You get 13 listings which you can place in either Finders Speakers or The Barber Shop Bookstore and you can quote yourself different 27 times in Wyze Words... all for just $9 a month. When you consider the cost-per-listing, the price of a single marketing opportunity drops to less than a penny a day!
Isn't promoting your speech, your training program, your future bestselling book, or yourself worth 1 cent a day?
Both beginning speakers and established professionals understand the vital importance of marketing in this highly-competitive industry. And Speaker Promo is the most cost-effective way for you to position yourself as an expert in your field and promote yourself to the people who hire speakers!
I created Speaker Promo with one idea in mind — to give professional speakers an inexpensive and effective way of marketing and positioning themselves. I look forward to helping you move your career to the next level!
