EasterBunnyHappy Easter!

I’m in Washington state where my in-laws live to visit for an extended Easter Weekend. I hope you’re doing something fun too? And after a week with my 7 year old step-daughter Riley home too – what a joy as a home-based entrepreneur right? Having to entertain a young kid 24/7 when they’re home from school. I was pretty smart though, I scheduled myself pretty light this week, or when we had her, thankfully….so I could enjoy too right?

Hopefully you’ve caught some of my live Blabs in the last couple weeks – there have been 3 total, boy do I love the Blab format, it’s fun! If you want to catch any replays you can check out my Blab profile here.

I love sharing information about all of the ways there are to market your business, get clients, grow your business, and make money doing what you love.  These days, one of the easiest and fastest ways to do all of this is to be a speaker.  I’ve been speaking in business for almost 14 years and I’m also the Queen of Follow Up!  That’s how I built my multiple six-figure business!  I know “HOW” to get clients and make things happen to increase leads and sales and also what to do to get more speaking gigs.

Today’s tip is this…Network in Person!

If you are not making enough money and don’t have enough clients, you’ve got to do something quick! The #1 most effective strategy when you need clients FAST is to go out and network with people, learn more about them and about their needs.

You may not be comfortable with networking initially but you’ll need to work on getting more comfortable so you can go out and network with others in person. If you want to build a business, you HAVE to be in a sales and marketing mode when you are talking to people. So do what you must to get over your being shy or uncomfortable when meeting or talking to new people. Networking is simply a skill that you can learn. Practice and you’ll get better at, without being salesy or pushy. You have to be able to work a room to pull out your leads and prospects, referral sources and yes, speaking opportunities!

My recommendations are:

  • Go to 3-5 networking events per week even if you have to travel to get there. You’ll find more people who are interested in you and what you have to offer if you meet them in person and talk to them.
  • Have an easy “yes” offer that is irresistible so people will purchase it on the spot to try you out.

I started my business initially by in person networking and following up and built it to
a high 5 figure business! I wasn’t doing online marketing at that time. But it’s still the most important thing you do today other than Speaking in front of an audience. If you are not networking, you are losing money!

screenshot video tip 03.24.16Remember when you are networking to:

  • have a brief statement ready if the other person asks what you do.
  • ask other people questions – dive deeper into what they do. Then ask what their biggest challenge is (in regard to what you do). This will give you an indication whether they might be a good prospect for you, maybe a good referral source or if they are in charge of a group, they might invite you to speak to their group.

I hope I’ve encouraged to get out there and network in person more. If you are looking for some inexpensive training on how to be as effective as you can while networking, click here to access my Tradeshow Toolkit, which is great for any type of event, including networking.

_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.
