Do you have a Fear of Speaking…either in person or on video?  Why?!

I really want to encourage any of you who have any kind of fear whatsoever about speaking to do whatever it takes this year to get over it.

If you have your own business – speaking can be your FASTEST PATH TO CASH on a regular basis! No joke! But you have to get started. You have to get booked (and/or do your own shows/events).

You have to get clear on your talks, message. You need to make sure you know who it’s for. YOU CAN do this now, it doesn’t have to be scary if you’re shown how to do it and what to talk about for your biz and focus.

Stop self-sabotaging your business’ success by WAITING to speak. Whether you are thinking about how to speak in person or on video and podcasts – it’s all good, it’s all speaking! And if done well.. it will all bring you leads and cash into your business!

Finding speaking gigs of all sorts is an extremely important revenue producing activity that I believe most entrepreneurs want to be focused on each and every week.

If you’re not speaking weekly at this point and you are a speaker, what are you doing?

There are opportunities EVERYWHERE to speak.

Heck, you can create your own speaking gigs – online, in person and all over. If you’re not doing that, why not?

One of the best ways I use to get speaking gigs and opportunities I share more about on this week’s video tip – go listen in!

 

A couple others that I forgot to mention on the video are:

1 – Put a Google Alert on for “Call for Speakers” then when anyone puts that on a webpage you’ll be notified. Now, you might be notified QUITE OFTEN if you’re not careful or if you don’t narrow that phrase down a bit but give it a try!

2 – If you wish to speak to corporations or larger associations and conferences, besides doing the things I mention on the video or in #1 above, you will also want to build a PROSPECT LIST of companies and organizations. Then you have to reach out in a direct marketing approach to those people, connections and companies multiple times over a period of time to build relationships with them. Normally you’ll have to allow them to get to know you over time before they may be ready to speak with you so don’t give up after just one or two contacts!

Now… in order to get booked these days often you also must have a video of yourself doing your talk or with an example “sizzle reel” of some kind.

You want to figure out how to get a video of yourself in front of a couple audiences or more if you don’t already have some footage.

We do supply you with a video in front of an audience doing a 5 minute video clip of your talk at my upcoming Speaker Success Bootcamp by the way. It’s a perk of attending as a VIP!

But just to get you started finding more speaking gigs – in person or online, and to get you more prepared to speak and even make more money from the speaking you ARE already doing… I would highly recommend you go get access to my:

Are you avoiding doing Video and Live Streaming?

I have some clients who are not yet doing video or livestreaming and they really need to take advantage of this powerful medium.  I invited the Video Queen, Monique Johnson to join me in a recent Facebook Live to talk about Everything Video but that video has since expired now. But read on for some quick tips and then make sure you follow me on Facebook as well as Monique here.

As you know, networking is important for the growth of your business, but let’s face it – you are not going to be able to reach as many people at going to networking events as you can when you are broadcasting Live or with a Video online. When you appear on video or a Facebook Live, it’s like an opportunity to reach (or to network) with many more people who are from several geographic areas, not only those who are in your local area.

When you are broadcasting or doing a video online, it’s like you’re attending a networking event and you are the featured speaker!

I met my friend, Monique Johnson, at an event where we were both speaking and her presentation blew me away.  She is  an expert in Video Production and in using Video and broadcasting Live.  Monique helps her clients and students get more clients by showing them how to use and harness the power of Social Video.

I got together with Monique on a Facebook Live recently to discuss “Everything Video”.  Monique shared several great tips about Live Videos and stressed the importance of repurposing your video or Live content on your social media platforms.  Here are a few of Monique’s tips that we cover in this broadcast:

  • It’s important that your Live Videos don’t die on the platform you broadcasted them on – Repurpose them.
  • Each platform has different limits for Video and Live streaming.  What you are publishing YouTube isn’t the same as what you will be publishing on Instagram.
  • If your Video is longer than the length the platform you want to share it on will allow, you simply edit it to show shorter videos like snippets, teasers, and highlights.
  • You don’t have to invest in a lot of expensive equipment to get started.  A smartphone is all you need.

Do you know all of the broadcast limit of each social media platform?

If you missed our Facebook Live, go follow us online and catch the next one!

Be sure to check out Monique’s Group to learn more about creating Videos and Live Streams for your business.

Come on! It’s YOUR Time to shine online!!

xoxo Katrina

Walt Grassl and I talked about Love and Money on his Stand Up and Speak Up Radio Show.  The topic was about Putting More Love in your Life and More Money in your Business.

Walt’s Radio Show is about facing your fears so you can live your dreams.  All of us have had to do this at some time in our lives or careers.

When I was working in my corporate career in sales and marketing years ago, I quickly discovered that people don’t know what they don’t know. I still find this to be an issue with some of my clients.

A few years after I left the corporate world and started my business, I found out myself in that same boat, especially when it came to online marketing and leveraging.

I knew that I wanted to make more money and online marketing was a way for me to serve more clients. But I was trading hours for dollars and I knew I couldn’t continue to do that because there’s only so many hours in a day.

Once I made the decision to use systems and automate my business processes, I had time to create more programs for my clients and was able to cut the time I was working from 60 hours per week to 10-15 hours working with clients. The rest of my time is spent marketing myself and my business, training, and speaking engagements.

Love and Money – What I Learned

The way that Love impacts the ability to make more Money comes from my personal experience. I learned that a love of self, supportive people in my life to love me and yes, a change in my own mindset was what I needed to nurture my big ideas into reality. Attracting and having Love in my Life helped me make more Money!

In this interview, Walt and I discussed a variety of business topics like speaking in your business.  Many speakers have had to overcome the fear of public speaking and making a mistake while in front of people.  I’ve experienced many of the struggles and challenges that other speakers experience but I’ve learned to overcome them.  And one big mistake that many speakers make is failing to make a connection with their audience in their intro. If you don’t do that, you’ve lost them for the rest of your presentation.

I’ve shared some issues or landmines that speakers can run into when they are hosting their own live events and ways to avoid those costly mistakes, the beauty of making Fast Cash and more.

Click to Listen in to our discussion about Putting More Love in your Life and More Money in your Business!

So, are you ready to put more Love in your Life and more Money in your Business?  I’m hosting my Love & Money LIVE! event in Sacramento on April 5th – 7th.  We have new content and speakers coming to inspire you to transform your Life and your Business.  Take a look at what we cover at https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/loveandmoneylive   I’m looking forward to meeting you there!

Here’s to Your Success!!

Have you been trying to get yourself some speaking opportunities (I call them gigs) but you’re not having the best of luck getting booked?

Are you wondering how becoming a speaker will generate more business for you or why it’s such an important marketing strategy?

Well, I’ll tell you; I get most of my coaching clients and even most of my paying customers for other products and programs from speaking gigs. Sometimes they hear me speak in person at a conference or business event. Sometimes they hear me speak over the phone on a teleclass or webinar. Either way, being a speaker allows me to be the expert in my industry or on my topic. It brings credibility to what I do, who I am and it allows people to experience me quicker than if there were to just read a page or two on my website.

speakingWhen people get to hear you or watch you for a longer period of time than just a quick hello or introduction it gives them more of a sense of what you do, how you can help them and they can make a more informed decision on if or how they want to work with you. I highly recommend adding speaking to your overall marketing strategies if you’re a small business owner.

When people hear your speak, it gives them a better sense of what you do and how you can help them. Click To Tweet

In fact, I have a speaker training course on this topic because all my coaching clients need to learn what to do to become a speaker.

The following is that 6 Step Process.

  • Step 1: Determine WHO you’ll talk to and what do they want to hear. Ask yourself “What are you an expert in? or Who is your target market and where will we find groups of them? What do they care about exactly that relates somewhat to what you do?“ Do a search on Google, meetup.com, look for associations or other organizations with events, conferences and even online events and telesummits!
  • Step 2: Develop your speaking topics and speaker sheet. It’s important to BE PREPARED for speaking opportunities at all times if you expect to get any. You want to have a professional speaker sheet ready to email someone who wants to book you that includes your topics, descriptions, bullets of what they’ll learn, your bio, picture and contact information at the very least. Having a video of yourself on stage is also good.
  • Step 3: Strategize on where to get gigs. You’ll need to build a list of potential events, organizations or meetings that you can speak for locally, nationally and virtually. There are easy ways to find places but you need to do your due diligence if you want to get booked. Then you could delegate the contacting of those people and places but it’s not always that easy to find someone who really understands what to ask or say to do this, trust me, I’ve tried; I find that I’m always the best person to look for and contact people to get myself booked.
  • Step 4: Craft your presentations. It’s important to create your speaking presentations so that they are educational, informative, memorable and they make the audience take the action you want them to take at the end. Whether you’re making a sales pitch at the end or not, how you design your talk is crucial to your success, please don’t wing this.
  • Step 5: Design your accompanying marketing materials. Often times you’ll want handouts, flyers, order forms or table display materials for when you attend a live speaking event (as well as virtual – what to do online). Again, if you’re not prepared with these things then you’ll most likely waste your time doing the speaking in the first place. One thing I like to suggest when speaking to a group of people who aren’t that familiar with you is to have and make an “Easy YES Offer”. This is something low priced and easy for someone to buy that gives them a ‘taste’ of what you offer to ‘try you out’.
  • Step 6: Following up after a speaking gig. Most speakers don’t do this well at all and it could be more important than what you do AT the event itself. Developing a kick-butt follow up plan for after an event will provide ongoing lead generation and sales. Most of my sales come in the follow up process but don’t rely only on email marketing these days, you have to do phone calling, direct mail and even connect with prospects on social media sites too as they may only see one of these four attempts!

Hopefully this gives you some idea on what to get started doing to jumpstart yourself as a speaker.

Remember though, speaking is just ONE type of marketing strategy that you may want to do in your small business. Generally, you need to do 5-15 marketing strategies every month in order to maximize your potential.

Want more clients but not sure how to get them? 

There are so many ways to market and grow your business, get clients, and make money these days but being a speaker is probably one of the easiest and fastest ways – trust me! Whether you’re comfortable speaking or not, there is a way to get more comfortable so that you can make this one of your top marketing strategies.

Most people who think about speaking but don’t do it is usually because either they don’t know what to speak about, don’t know who will consider them as an expert or don’t know how to get speaking opportunities (I call them gigs).

But you can change this. You can become a very dynamic, sought after speaker. Sometimes you just need a little help in designing your talk, figuring out what to say, offer the audience, sell or how to prepare. When you’re more prepared, you have more clarity. When you have more clarity you have more confidence. When you have more confidence, nothing can stop you!

In this talk you’ll learn:
My simple 6 Step System for Jumpstarting Yourself as a Dynamic, Sought After Speaker
How to Prepare for Getting Speaking Gigs So You’re Much More Confident
The easiest, quickest ways to develop your signature talk, speaker sheet and special offers.
What materials you need before, during and after presentations so you maximize your time and amount of leads you receive.

Becoming a speaker as a main marketing strategy will work for ALL TYPES OF BUSINESSES! If you need more clients, customers or even distributors in your direct sales business, learning how to become a speaker or how to monetize what you’re already doing when speaking will help you tremendously, I promise.

 

All you need is the HOW so you can get more clarity and confidence then this will be a piece of cake. Join me and REGISTER TODAY!
