Last year one of my most popular blog posts was "Quick and easy ways to get speaking leads in 2018" ...
In my opinion, one extremely helpful speaking lead generator are online platforms such as GigSalad. I hear many fellow speakers say this platform doesn't work and they never get bookings ... but it does!! In fact, I've landed two $3,500+ speaking contracts this year already.
Look, if you're fishing on a boat, you're not always going to catch fish. But you're NEVER going to catch fish if the hook is never in the water!
Just being listed on any platform won't do you much good if your profile looks unprofessional. You have to have created an attractive, professional profile that provides what meeting planners need --- see Modules 1 & 2 in my book for perfect examples!
I don't write this to impress you. I write this to impress upon you that you need to be on online platform sites like GigSalad if you want to book more speaking gigs in 2019.
Why wouldn't you want to be on these sites if they required minimal investment? Just one(1) speaking gig would pay for itself ... x 20!!
If you're not on Gig Salad, I have a special code for you to get 49% OFF. Simply click here and enter code NEWYEAR2019. You're welcome :)
If you don't care about being a speaker listed on Gig Salad or Thumbtack, or you don't care about setting up Google Alerts, then just know you are leaving thousands of dollars on the table.
But furthermore, if you are on these sites and they aren't working for you, then you need to "take your car into the shop." Something in your engine is inhibiting your speed and success. This is where I can help you.
I used to think asking for help was a sign of weakness.
I discovered it was a sign of strength when the advice I got launched my speaking business into new heights.
