To become a well paid speaker, it doesn’t mean that you have to work yourself to death or frantically start a huge social media campaign etc. None of that will work for you if you don’t first have the vision.
So step one is to envision how you want your future to play out and hold that vision no matter how much ‘evidence’ you may see that seems to contradict or cancel your vision. The professional speaking field is changing quickly and you’ll need nerves of steel not to cave in and try to change to suit what you think the market wants.
You will need to change, of course, in order to grow and adapt to a new market but the only change you’ll ever need is to grow and develop yourself and your message; in other words, become MORE of who you really are.
Be fully confident and know who you are and what you have to offer. Be certain that the value proposition clearly conveys the great value you bring to audiences. It might be clear to you....is it also clear to anyone who doesn’t know you? To someone whose needs and objectives are different from yours?
From the power vantage point of a compelling value proposition, develop an outstanding promotional page. It doesn’t have to be pricey if you’re just starting out but it does have to be highly professional.
Create a 2-3 minute demo video which can be in front of an audience or just you speaking directly to the camera. Be honest, authentic and yourself.
Finally make sure that your website is professional, easy to navigate and captures any browser’s email address and name so that you can follow up.
And then get yourself out there. Attend meetings where your prospects hang out, join select associations and make yourself known, write articles for your target audience.
