FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are these guaranteed events to hire you?
The PAID Event Calendar guarantees these events hire speakers at the time of being added to our database. It does not guarantee you will be booked to speak, but it provides you with the people who do the booking! This was not a resource I had when I first started speaking! This should be a GAME CHANGER for you.
What if I'm just starting out in speaking?
Even better to help you accelerate your speaking from the beginning!! The calendar is ideal for speakers at any level - from just starting out to intermediate to seasoned professional. It's an incredible resource designed to help you accelerate your speaking engagements and provide you with access to conference organizers who seek out speakers. You'll be able to apply the calendar events with Module 3 in PAID to $PEAK!
What if I'm not ready to reach out yet?
What makes you think that? How long have you been telling yourself that and believing a negative assumption? "Not feeling ready" or "good enough" will hold you back more than anything else? Don't settle for convincing yourself you're not ready. I've been speaking for 20+ years now and I'm learning something new every single speech. Believe you're ready to grow and you will. Every speaker has room for improvement! If you don't feel ready, I'd encourage you to consider a 1:1 coaching call with me to help get clarity on next steps and moving yourself forward and through that mindset. That's an invaluable aspect of coaching and support.
What if I missed out on an event?
What makes the calendar so incredible is that these events are held annually. This means if you missed out on 2021, you'll have 2022, 2023 and beyond to have on your calendar!
How do I know if some groups are a fit?
Some groups might not seem like a fit based on what you're looking for, but I would still reach out! They might be looking for an outside speaker who is unique and different. The majority of clients I have spoken for the past several years (click here) I never would have felt a fit to reach out to them. For example, the International Erosion Control Association hired me as a keynote speaker because they wanted someone outside their industry to kick-off their conference. Once again, never assume you're not a fit or not good enough. Let them decide! It's all about position yourself. Use this calendar to reach out!
Is there a free trial?
No, I value this content too much to just give it away. We did create a $25 monthly subscription to provide a low-entry price point. You can cancel at any time.
Are these virtual events or face-to-face?
2021 looks to be mostly virtual, although you potentially might have some events hybrid. So it depends. Some events will adjust as well and their website will announce any changes! This is one reason to have a solid speaking contract to protect you from any postponements or cancellations. I include a sample contract in "The Vault" that protects me from Force Majeure cancellations. My new contract has already saved me $20,000+ in speaking fees and you have access to this and many more resources for your speaking. Check out "The Vault!"
Are these events you’ve spoken at personally?
I will be speaking at several of them, but that's because of this calendar!! These are events put together for me, so I'm excited to have all these opportunities. PLUS, most of these events are hiring multiple keynote and breakout session speakers. So you'll have several opportunities potentially for each event!
Which option do you recommend for speakers just starting out?
Go BIG or go home! Why go small if speaking is a business you're serious about? You can change your subscription level at any time.
How much do these events pay?
It depends. These aren't one size fits all. Some events might be $1,500 - $2,500 and some could be $10,000+. Think of it this way ... if JUST ONE EVENT could pay for an entire year's subscription, would that be a good return on your investment? Absolutely, and BY FAR!! So the potential ROI for you is enormous. You won't have an ROI if you don't invest in yourself and your business.
Can you change your subscription level?
Yes, at any time.
Can a subscriber unsubscribe at any time if they aren’t seeing results?
Yes, absolutely. If you aren't seeing any results, I would love to hear from you to see your sample outreach. I could provide some strategies to help you.
As a speaker, what are best practices for sending communications to these contacts?
Are these events arranged by location or date?
No. These are randomly selected opportunities hosting events and seeking speakers throughout 2021 and beyond. Furthermore, since virtual events will be the most common delivery medium in 2021, the "location" will be virtual.
Can you query all the events and just pick the events you want?
No, unfortunately. However, you will receive all the event names regardless of your subscription level. So you will be able to see all the 200+ events each month but only have the contact information for the number of events you've paid.
Can you provide the contact info in an excel spreadsheet?
Yes, you will receive access to the spreadsheet for the number of events you subscribed.
What if I don't have a virtual studio or have virtual delivery ready?
Now's your time to get ready my friend! I encourage you to check out Speaking Professionally Toastmasters to help you with your virtual delivery and provide you with practice opportunities. You'll receive amazing feedback and suggestions to further develop and polish your speaking. Also, if you don't have a dedicated virtual space somewhere to present, I recommend you download my FREE Virtual Studio guide with equipment and consider setting up a time to speak with me about helping you get the right equipment and set up.
