SPEAKING is the Number 1 marketing strategy to attract more clients these days.  Speaking in your business can help you grow and scale your business to make it consistently profitable.

I’ve been speaking for several years both locally and for speaking gigs that I travel to. Being a speaker doesn’t always mean you are speaking from the stage.  Today, technology has made it possible to have virtual speaking gigs. For example, I also appear on others’ radio shows & podcasts.  I broadcast using Facebook Live and I do webinars and teleclasses.

speaker successI also host the “Sacramento Speakers and Entrepreneurs Network” where members and guests receive focused Speaker Training.  We also have speakers present in person at our live meetings and online in our virtual meetings or Webinars as you can see in the photo of a recent Virtual Meeting on Zoom.

It makes no difference whether you are speaking in person to a group at an event or meeting, whether you are hosting your own event where you are speaking in person, or whether you are speaking virtually – You Are Still Speaking.

Many of you have heard me say “Speaking is your Fastest Path to Cash” and it really is! I’ve been Speaking for several years and it has helped me attract more clients and sell more of my programs and products which has resulted in growth of my business and more income.

I am so passionate about helping others learn to be sought-out speakers, to avoid mistakes that many speakers make, and to use this strategy effectively. I have created programs and I host a LIVE Event/workshop to show entrepreneurs how to get comfortable and confident with presenting their talk, how to deliver their talks, what they need to market themselves to get more bookings, to use PowerPoint effectively, how to monetize their talks, follow-up, and more.

If you have started speaking a little but your efforts haven’t resulted in making enough money to justify your time, this Event is for you. Maybe you are thinking about speaking in your business but you have no idea what topics you should speak about, you don’t know how to present your talk, how to handle back of the room displays and sales, or maybe the thought of standing up before others to speak makes you a bit uncomfortable. If any of this resonates, this Event is for you!

My “Speaker Success Bootcamp” LIVE event, is a hands-on, interactive workshop in Sacramento, June 14th-16th . Some of the topics will help uncover gaps that many speakers experience that hinder their ability to be successful, including:

  • How you are missing out on thousands of dollars in sales and new clients every single month depending on what you offer/sell;
  • What’s lacking to build credibility and exposure for yourself and your business;
  • How you are missing out on thousands of dollars in sales and new clients because you don’t know how to effectively close sales from the stage, back of the room or in your follow up;
  • Why it’s difficult for you to get repeat invitations due to poorly designed presentations or talks that aren’t content or audience focused;

My VIP attendees will also receive BONUSES that all speakers need. One HUGE BONUS that I include is a 5 Minute Recorded Video of YOU on STAGE Rocking Your Talk. All speakers need video of your presentation(s) on your website because promotors want to see what you look like, sound like and how you deliver your message. This bonus alone has a value of up to $1,400.

speaker successOne of my clients has attended this workshop twice and she already has two videos of her speaking on stage uploaded on her website!  If you already have one or two videos of yourself, you can use this one for filler or to create a fun SIZZLE REEL!!

Because there is so much covered in this workshop, you’ll receive 3- days of training, coaching and guidance to help you emerge as a Dynamic Speaker.

I’ve recently opened Registration for this Event and I’m offering Super Early Bird Rates to the first 50 people who register. You can attend this 3-day workshop with a General Admission Ticket and get the Live training for just $97.

And if you are ready to step out and GO BIG by purchasing the VIP ticket, you will receive:

  • An extra session before the event starts where you will get dialed in and crystal clear;
  • My “Jumpstart Speaker Training System” – a 6 week home study course that you can start working on before the event, if you’d like;
  • And the mega bonus – the 5-minute Recorded Video of You Rocking your Talk on stage.

The VIP ticket is your Best Value and the option most serious speakers will choose. It is also special priced at $597. for a limited time until the first 50 people sign up.

If you’ve been thinking about Speaker Training, you WANT someone who has the experience to coach you and train you. You want someone who’s made the mistakes when they were starting out in the speaking arena and who has learned what works and what doesn’t.

_Alicia-White-headshot-small-with-titleMy friend, Alicia White, Founder and Creative Director of Back of the Room Productions™, helps speakers, coaches, consultants, and business owners give their message legs long after they leave the stage through professional branding and powerful products. From speaker sheets to back of the room products, clients receive high-level graphic design and expert branding strategy that leads them to business and speaking success! Today, I’m sharing her post that gives speakers insight about how to get paid even if you are not being paid to speak at an Event, Meeting or Conference.~ Katrina Sawa

There was a time when a public speaker would be hired to speak to an audience. Speakers like Anthony Robbins, Barbara Corcoran and Les Brown could make thousands off of a single appearance on stage. In recent years, this has changed. Trust me these speakers are still getting paid a handsome fee, but it’s the new generation of public speakers that aren’t seeing these grand offers.

There is a significant difference between the highly paid speakers and the new generation. The new generation of speakers is made up of people like you and me: business strategists, life coaches, insurance agents, health advisors, and social media experts.

Why? Because these speakers have fospeaker microphone and moneyund great benefit in public speaking – they can grow their business and share their message to more people at one time. Think about it: a 30-minute presentation to 20 people in one room beats cold calling 20 people in one day.

That’s why I say “YES” to “no fee” engagements. I’m a branding strategist and I have tailored my presentation to provide information and be a resource to the audience. I know that speaking will benefit my success in some way. To get the most out of my speaking I ask of the event host or meeting planner if they can fulfill these requests:

  • provide me with back of the room (BOR) presence to sell products and generate leads
  • purchase my products or books in advance and gift them to the audience
  • introduce me to other organizations that would have my as a speaker
  • introduce me to key people that could use my services
  • provide an attendee list with contact information for my use
  • hold a drawing to give away a product/service
  • get a copy of any video or photographs taken of me at the event for my use

Create your own list of requests to leverage your time at the event, not just on stage. There are other strategies to help you get compensated for your expertise and time.

To help you, I am giving away a FREE CHECKLIST on QUALIFYING YOUR EVENT. It’s yours for just signing up in the box on the right on my website: http://www.backoftheroomproductions.com

If you aren’t familiar with back of the room marketing or sales; or maybe what you’re doing isn’t working, let’s talk about that. In my 15 minute free consultation, ask your most challenging question and I’ll give you a ready-to-use strategy and help you define your next step.
