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 —
First, Speaker Promo provides you with multiple listings in Finders Speakers, the place where meeting planners find the speakers they need. There are a number of great reasons why you should be listed in Finders Speakers!
Let's start with the obvious reason — marketing! Experienced pros understand that you can never have too much marketing. Can you afford not to seize an easy way to market yourself?
But not all marketing is the same. With most speakers' directories, you get a single, "cookie-cutter" listing where you're expected to describe yourself and all your programs and products and services in just a few words. But each entry in Finders Speaker has no limit on its size. That's right — there's no counting of words (or even worse, characters!) to determine how big your Finders Speakers entry can be. You make it as big as it needs to be! (And isn't that the way it should be?)
"But wait, there's more!" Experienced pros will advise you that you need to "stand out from the crowd", but how can you stand out when your short directory listing looks just like everyone else's? That's why you can format your entry in Finders Speakers to make it look more visually appealing. Use color or highlighting, insert images, change the font size... you have almost unlimited formatting options to make your Finders Speakers entry catch the eye of the people who are looking to hire speakers!
Another reason you need Finders Speakers is privacy! You certainly want people to be able to contact you, but only the right people. And when you put your email address on your directory entry (or worse yet, your website), you're just asking to be bombarded with limitless spam solicitations.
But with Finders Speakers, you get your own private contact capability, so meeting planners can easily reach you without your ever disclosing your email address. If you're listing your email address on your website, you need to stop it immediately and start using Finders Speakers' private contact capability!
This would be impressive if you had only one entry in Finders Speakers to use. But with Speaker Promo, you can have up to thirteen different entries. (Entries that you don't use in Finders Speakers can be used instead to promote your products or services in The Barber Shop Bookstore.) 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.
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!
